Vienna is a grand imperial city, along a majestic river, the Danube. The capital of a vast empire until 1918, today the city enchants its many visitors with its class, style and elegance. During the summer its imperial parks & gardens are an extraordinary place to walk and relax. In the cold & snowy winter months its rich museums, sparkling theatres, ornate cafes and restaurants offer shelter and endless cultural opportunities. In the weeks before Christmas the city turns into a spectacular and glittering winter wonderland, with its famous Christkindlmarkt and amazing festive street lights.
LGBT info – Most of the gay bars & clubs are located in city’s South-West, in the Mariahilf neighbourhood, mostly around the Kettenbrückengasse U-Bahn station. There are exceptions though, such as the stunning and historical Kaiserbrundl Sauna which is in the centre of town, close to St Stephen’s cathedral.
