Vienna is a city known for its classical music, cafes and Christmas markets. As these associations might suggest, it’s a city that is steeped in tradition. The palaces of the Hapsburgs and the Vienna State Opera House stand in the same places as they have for centuries. Beautiful cafes once frequented by luminaries such as Freud and Klimt are still serving the classic dishes of wiener schnitzel and sachertorte. Mozart’s former apartment is somewhere around the corner. You come to Vienna to step back in time and live a life that you read about in great novels and old history books.
