Vienna In Your Pocket city guide


Keep going folks, we’ve almost made it to springtime. The temperatures are beginning to creep up as the hours of sunlight increase ever so slightly, and the people of Vienna return to the streets, parks and squares of this most magical city. So, what does the City of Dreams have on tap for March and April of 2019?

Easter is a special time in the Austrian capital. Christmas markets are commonplace throughout Europe these days, but what about the Easter variety? Only in Vienna. The traditional markets have been around for well over a century, and offer a relaxed vibe alongside some truly unique souvenirs. 

Easter weekend is full of concerts, another notch in the belt of the City of Music. Classical compositions are still beloved in Vienna, and the strains of strings will fill the city from Maundy Thursday until Easter Sunday. Saying that, Vienna is the classical music capital of the world, so a packed schedule of concerts is nothing new. 

Add the Easter celebrations to the usual array of iconic attractions, an energetic nightlife, fantastic restaurants and a cafe culture that is quite literally the best on the planet, and you have the perfect tourism package. Vienna isn’t just any city, and springtime might just be its best shade. As usual, we welcome any and all feedback, be it through email, social media, message in a bottle or cryptically painted onto a decorated Easter egg. Have a magnificent spring.
