Book a luxury hotel in Vienna with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to experience a flamboyant city famed for its fashionable emperors, classical composers and chic coffee-house culture.
Luxury things to do in Vienna
Step out of your luxury hotel in Vienna onto the Mariahilferstrasse ‘shopping mile’ to browse perfumeries and lingerie boutiques or head to vast Shopping City Süd for exclusive fashion brands like Hilfiger and Van Graaf. At the classical Spanish Riding School, snowy-white Lipizzaner stallions piaffe with their tail-coated riders to the strains of a philharmonic orchestra. Gaze down from the lofty Gothic towers of iconic St Stephen’s Cathedral to see the elaborate, glazed tile roofs of the cityscape below.
Luxury arts and culture in Vienna
The Hofburg Palace, which once housed Austria’s monarchy, now showcases their treasures in a trio of regal museums. Admire Franz Joseph’s Imperial Apartments furbished with lavish Empire-style furniture, Empress Elizabeth’s haute couture wardrobe the Sisi Museum and the glistening Imperial Silver Collection. The stucco and gold leaf-adorned art galleries in Kunsthistorisches Museum are the perfect backdrops for the Rembrandt, Rubens and Vermeer masterpieces that hang there.
Elegant Austrian guild halls and vaulted beisel taverns in the Old City serve cordon bleu wiener schnitzel, veal and fresh strudel to the sound of schrammel accordion serenades. Vienna’s elite coffee-houses with their signature vaulted ceilings and chandeliers are the place to mingle with local celebrities and politicians over creamy Viennoise coffee and sticky fruity buchteln cakes.
