Vienna

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.
Vienna is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the striking features of Schonbrunn Palace, explore the world behind art at Belvedere Palace, see the interesting displays at Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, and don't miss a visit to Haus der Musik Wien.

To find where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Vienna sightseeing site.

New York City, USA to Vienna is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from New York City to Vienna due to the time zone difference. When traveling from New York City in February, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Vienna: temperatures range from 41°F by day to 30°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) to allow time to drive to Salzburg.
