Ease of access makes Vienna a ‘popular’ city break choice

Ease of access makes Vienna a 'popular' city break choice

City breaks in Vienna are "perennially popular" thanks to the city’s location and the number of airlines that fly there.

This is according to the Vienna Tourist Office’s (VTO’s) Mary Stuart-Miller, who said that the Austrian capital has "excellent communication links".

"For centuries the city was frequented by royalty, nobility, artists, musicians and patrons of the arts and they have all left an indelible mark on the city, which today’s tourists and visitors flock to see and experience," she commented.

Ms Stuart-Miller went on to say that Vienna offers a range of cultural experiences, from museums and art galleries to festivals and "cutting edge" exhibitions.

She also said that January and February is a particularly popular time to book flights to Vienna as it is the city’s ball season.

According to the VTO, Brits spent a collective total of 359,000 nights in the Austrian capital last year.

December was the most popular month in 2009, with the number of overnight stays 3.6 percent up on 2008’s total, which was itself a previous all-time record.
