Vienna in Three-Four Time

Category: Sights

There are over 2,000 hours of dancing to be enjoyed in Vienna during the ball season in January and February. The city of Johann “Schani” Strauss hosts about 450 balls each year. Bon vivants have plenty of opportunity to explore the city’s shops and drop in at a café or the Vienna Ice Dream.

The changeover from winter to spring is the perfect time of year for a trip to a Viennese coffee house. Treat yourself in an oasis of Viennese coziness, enjoy the range of specialty coffees and while away the hours. The rich cakes and pastries available from the countless patisseries put a Viennese spin on la dolce vita. Viennese cuisine with its specialties such as schnitzel and Kaiserschmarrn are favorites whatever the season.

Another sporting highlight, the Vienna Ice Dream on City Hall Square, is the place to pull off cool pirouettes to the latest chart hits and oldies on the 7,000 square meter ice rink. And the Therme Wien, Europe's largest and most modern city spa, helps guests forget winter temperatures with its comprehensive line of wellness services. More: www.vienna.info
