Romantic Valentine’s Day Adventures: Vienna

OK folks, this is it. I’ve guided you through Romantic Valentine’s Day Excursion itineraries in Paris and Florence.  Still haven’t found the perfect trip idea?

Perhaps you’ve already been to these cities, or perhaps you are looking for a destination that is less of a Valentine’s Day cliché.

I thus present to you, in my final post of this series, the charming, music-filled city of VIENNA.

Smaller and more manageable than Paris, yet with a cosmopolitan edge that sets it apart from Florence, Vienna is the perfect weekend destination for the young, culture-loving couple!

Romantic Valentine’s Day Adventures in Vienna

1. City Tour with Schonbrunn Palace.

Get acquainted with the city on this comprehensive city bus tour, which will take you by all of the best places in Vienna: the famous State Opera House, The Museums Quartier (home to contemporary art exhibitions, chic cafes and trendy shops) and the Belvedere Palace, to name a few.

The tour includes admission to Schonbrunn Palace, which is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, for the grand palace, along with its famous gardens, are both considered important Baroque works of art.

2. Vienna City Bike Tour

Perhaps you and your Valentine prefer something a bit more active!  Explore Vienna on this exhilarating bike ride through all of the city centre highlights, including the City Park, the Johann Strauss Monument and St. Stephan’s Cathedral.

3. Danube Valley Tour

Witness the romantic scenery of Wachau on this relaxing day trip through the Danube Valley.  Marvel at the quaint old villages and steep vineyards which line the river.  The bus will take you to the stunning Benedictine Abbey of Melk.  Winter tours include lunch; summer tours include a boat ride.

4.  Evening Tour and Wine Tavern.

A fun-filled romantic evening for all!  Discover the sights and sounds of Vienna by night as you cruise the Ringstrasse and take a ride the ferris wheel at Prater Amusement Park*.  The highlight of the evening will be your authentic Viennese dining experience at a wine tavern in the village of Neustift am Walde, where you will enjoy traditional food and be entertained by folk dancers and gypsy music.

Happy Planning!

I have now provided you with oodles of Valentine’s Day gift ideas.  Now, it’s time to choose your destination, and embark on the romantic adventure of a lifetime!

*The ferris wheel is closed in the winter, and you will instead be taken to the top of Cobenzyl Hill for a glass of sparkling wine.

    Valentine’s Day is a holiday where coming up with new gift ideas is always difficult. No one wants that expected bouquet of roses every year, so we try to surprise our special someone. Well this year I came up with a great gift idea for my boyfriend. With help from this article..
    I was able to book my boyfriend and I, a little four day getaway for only $4. Yea, I know sounds crazy but it’s true.. I got the hotel for only $1 a night.
