Vienna Cruises

High culture meets a hip nightlife in modern Vienna. This picture-perfect city is well known for its history as a centre for classical music, having once been home to legends like Beethoven and Mozart, as well as the important headquarters of the Habsburg empire. See the legacy they’ve left behind at the impressive Hofburg palace complex, admire the fancy footwork of the Lipizzaner stallions at the Spanish Riding School, or view the works of artists like Gustav Klimt in the Museums Quartier. The city’s easy to navigate, with most of its landmarks enclosed by the circular Ringstrasse.


We have over 130 expert cruise consultants to help you book the perfect cruise. Many have first hand experience of Vienna and you can find some of their best tips and advice below.

In Vienna you have the Schonbrun Palace and St Stephen’s Cathedral, plus the Hofburg baroque palace complex and traditional Viennese coffee houses.


Do you want to see how the Habsburg monarchs lived? Visit their super-posh former residence, the Hofburg Palace, or gain insight into their daily lifestyle with a tour around the Sisi Museum, dedicated to former empress Elisabeth (nicknamed ‘Sisi’).

You can’t visit Vienna without sampling an assortment of its luscious cakes and pastries! Stop in at the Hotel Sacher to try a decadent slice of Sachertorte chocolate cake where it was invented. For savouries, the historic Naschmarkt is open daily to dish up bratwurst and other traditional street foods.

St Stephan’s Cathedral is a must-visit in Vienna, with its blend of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. It’s hard to miss, with a colourful mosaic rooftop and soaring towers. Climb the South Tower if you want the best views of the city, or delve underground to tour the somewhat-spooky catacombs.

The Habsburgs were big collectors, snapping up artwork and antiquities which are now housed in their palace museums. The Kunsthistorisches Museum is filled to the brim with paintings from the Old Masters, alongside ancient Roman busts and Egyptian coins. In the mood for something more modern? The MUMOK offers cutting-edge exhibitions, while the Leopold Museum features works from Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.
