After a restful night in your plush Scenic suite, rise the next day and relax in the lounge as you watch the beautiful scenery pass by on your way to the majestic city of Vienna. Worth its weigh in gold for its legacy of art and music, the city itself is Austria’s true masterpiece.
At the spectacular Palais Liechtenstein, admire the architectural opulence as you savour a glass of fine Austrian Sekt wine before enjoying the privilege of a private Viennese evening concert, featuring the music of Strauss and Mozart.
Return to the ship for the night and arise the next morning for more discoveries in Vienna. First, choose between taking a guided tour of the wonderfully Baroque Schönbrunn Palace, one of the most important monuments in the country, or the Belvedere Museum, where you can explore the greatest collection of Austrian art, boasting works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Max Beckmann. The museum also houses the world’s largest collection of Gustav Klimt paintings, including The Kiss and Judith.
Later that day, spend your final afternoon in Vienna exploring the magical Christmas markets. A tradition which dates back to the Middle Ages, these festive stalls are some of Europe’s most popular, with a vast array of gifts and tasty treats.
