Vienna In Your Pocket city guide


Spring is here, finally spring is here, we can put the big coat back in the wardrobe and start showing off the muscles we have gained over the winter period, or at least we would if we had committed to that New Year’s Resolution of consistent visits to the gym. Oh well, not to worry, we’re only going to eat and drink our bodyweight once the Easter markets arrive. What better way to celebrate the death and resurrection of our lord and saviour?

These are strange times in the travel world. The cancellation of ITB Berlin has set the industry on edge, as Europe falls over itself in trying to show who is the most panicked about COVID-19, better known as the coronavirus. It remains to be seen how the condition further impacts the tourist season, but that is out of our control. What is in our control? Bringing you all you need to know to make the most of a trip to Vienna, that’s what. 

We’ve already hinted at the Easter celebrations, and what celebrations they are. Is this Vienna at its most Viennese? That’s for you to decide, but it is difficult to look past the mass of food, joy and classical music during this time. There is irony there of course, as most of the city’s residents head for quieter climes to make the most of the holidays, but it all makes for a fascinating and thrilling time to be in this famous city.

Throw in the usual sights, sounds, tastes, smells and the rest, and you’ve got another glorious issue of Vienna In Your Pocket. We’ll be back in May with the big summer preview so get in touch however you like, via old fashioned email, social media or maybe even via morse code, depending on how this whole virus thing plays out. See you in the summer!
