Visiting Vienna on Train Holidays to Europe

Vienna is one of Europe’s truly magnificent cities – and a great choice if you’re considering train holidays to Europe.

An imperial capital

An in-depth discussion on the fascinating history of Vienna would take a long time, but suffice to say, it’s a history that goes back to the Romans. By the 19th century, it had become the great capital of what was called the Austro-Hungarian Empire and one of the world’s most cultured cities. It is also a city of breathtaking architecture, a famous coffee and pasty culture and of course, music! Just a sample of things to see must include mention of:

The Hofburg – the old imperial palace and centre of power for centuries;

The Belvedere palaces – originally built for Prince Eugene, the Duke of Marlborough’s great co-commander in the wars against Louis IV;

The Vienna Seccession building – famed for its secessionist architecture and art displays;

The magnificent Staatsoper – the original building was destroyed by bombing in 1945 and then painstakingly re-built ready to continue its tradition of presenting the finest operas.

Twiddling your thumbs is something you’re not likely to engage in when in Vienna!

Why Vienna by train?

There are a number of reasons why train holidays to Europe are growing in popularity. Firstly, people are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental issues associated with air or road travel. Trains, by contrast, are relatively green. Secondly, the travel experience of a luxury train journey is something totally different to air travel. You’re actually seeing the countryside you’re travelling through, and being pampered whilst doing so. Thirdly, the journey becomes part of your holiday. Eating in a first-class dining room, being served freshly prepared food presented by a master chef is a very different experience to even the best efforts of the airlines. Fourthly and finally, is there any more fitting way to arrive in the centre of Vienna, a bastion of style and culture, than by train?

Options

There are a number of possibilities available for travelling on luxury train holidays to Europe – including to Vienna. Many of them start in London (with luxury connections to elsewhere in the UK) with services that connect with various European destinations. It’s even possible to combine holidays by train to Vienna with other destinations. So you can take a luxury train there, spend a night or two in the city and then continue onwards to places such as Budapest or Istanbul.

Luxury train holidays to Europe bring destinations such as Vienna within your reach and in a style you may have thought had long disappeared with a bygone age.
