Winter weekend in Vienna


©Viennissima Lifestyle

Pretty Vienna is always worth a trip. But especially in the winter time! Because rarely is the city as beautifully decorated as at this time of year. Everything sparkles, glitters and shines. The facades of many hotels and imperial stately buildings are decorated with fairy lights and the Viennese coffee houses invite you for coffee & cake after a walk through the city center. A wintry weekend in Vienna is therefore always a "gourmet journey" through Viennese coffee houses and concept stores. Especially this year, numerous new restaurants, cafés, bars and boutiques have opened to offer you safe experiences away from the Christmas markets or tourist classics. That way you can fully enjoy the Christmas or winter atmosphere.
