Vienna

— 6 nights

City of Dreams

The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Time Travel Vienna, Original Vienna Snowglobe Factory, Votivkirche, and other attractions. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Karlskirche and Leopold Museum. Museum-lovers will appreciate Belvedere Palace and Kaiserliche Schatzkammer Wien. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Hofburg, explore the world behind art at Albertina, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Naturhistorisches Museum), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Augustinerkirche.

Plan a trip to Vienna easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Auckland, New Zealand to Vienna is an approximately 30-hour flight. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Auckland to Vienna due to the time zone difference.

Situated in the Central European Alps, Austria combines an alluring bundle of elegant urban architecture, cultural centers, and dramatic landscapes. This German-speaking country of 8.5 million residents is known for its rich history, dating back to the Hapsburg Empire, as well as its art, music, and scenery. Along with the neighboring country of Switzerland, Austria serves as the winter sports capital of Europe and is home to some of the continent's most popular ski resorts. This landlocked nation draws visitors from across the globe to its mountains, historical villages, and culturally rich cities. Experience trekking in the Alps one day and drinking regional wine at a crowded pub after a day of sightseeing in the capital Vienna the next.
