A Danube Christmas Delight

vienna

Celebrate Christmas in Austria’s elegant capital, Vienna. The city is amazing at Christmas as its grand architecture is particularly impressive dressed in fairy lights, candles and festive decorations.

Explore Vienna’s delights: the city’s circular central point, District 1, its focal point being the stunning St Stephen’s Cathedral. Stroll along Vienna’s main pedestrian street which leads to the Opera House at Karlsplatz. Visit Ringstrasse, built after the city walls were torn down, and which is now lined with some of Vienna’s most impressive architecture.

You should definetely visit the magical Christmas markets, in a spectacular setting in front of the city hall. Don’t stay in market for long as Hungarian capital is waiting for you. Budapest, a city divided by the Danube, with Buda on the right bank and Pest on the left.

Budapest’s distinctive character is incomparable; it still retains its old world charm. Wander the cobbled streets and admire its magnificent architecture.

Explore both sides of the city and enjoy the city’s festivities by visiting the spectacular traditional Christmas market on Vörösmarty Square in the heart of Pest.
You can choose to stay for 4 days in Vienna at the three-star Senator Hotel and 4 days in Budapest the four-star Best Western Hotel Hungaria, a 5 minute walk from the main train station.
