Did you manage to survive Christmas? How about the madness of New Years’ Eve? We’re going to go ahead and assume you did, so welcome to 2019 in Vienna! What do you have planned for the year ahead? We’re celebrating an early anniversary ourselves, as this very guide you are holding is the 50th issue of Vienna In Your Pocket! Half a century (in IYP terms) old, where does the time go? It has been a blast covering this most magical city over the years, and we look forward to the next half century and more.
Vienna is a special city throughout the Christmas period, and that uniqueness isn’t discarded once January and February are here. The snow covers the city in a most romantic sheen (provided it comes of course), and there are few more enchanting experiences than a little bit of cafe-hopping on a cold morning in Vienna. This city was made for coffee, so head to our cafe section and take your pick. Elsewhere, the memory of the festive markets is replaced by an abundance of exhibitions, live music, classical concerts and more, as Vienna once again proves that it is second to none when it comes to appreciating and showcasing creativity.
So tuck in to our first guide of 2019, as we put off going to the gym for one more week. As always we would love to hear from you, whether that is via social media, email, carrier pigeon, or via one of those airplanes that fly above football grounds and plead for a manager to be sacked. Have a fantastic new year.
