20 ISSUE 105 / 2017 TRAVEL Like its German-speaking cousin Berlin, Vienna loves techno and the city isn't short of good clubs offering great nights. Combine that with the many fantastic restaurants on offer, a central bar scene known as the 'Bermuda Triangle' and a couple of Christmas markets for the cultural tick list, Vienna begins to appeal to a much younger, and more dynamic audience. Getting around Getting around needn't be a logistical nightmare, or have to cost you a small fortune in Uber fares with Vienna's Metro system. The best option for travellers is to get the Vienna Card, which will allow you to use the Metro and qualify for discounts at key sites and attractions. Vienna's Tube network is one of the best in Europe, if not the cleanest (TFL take note). Consisting of five lines, the cities metro system is one of the quickest too and provides frequent transportation between some of the cities most famous landmarks, as well as having some of its own "Art Nouveau" stations designed by Otto Wagner. Attractions With so many landmarks and historical buildings, it could get a bit monotonous if you're not into looking at concrete buildings all day. But if you do visit any of these sites, get yourself to Schonbrunn Palace, and check out the opulence on offer with a grand tour around its 40 rooms, luscious gardens and its various summer houses. This palace even has its own zoo, which is bound to bring out the inner Emperor or Empress in you. But If you do prefer to capture the architectural splendour all in one go, then just head down to the city centre which is rich in beautiful architecture, Baroque castles, picturesque gardens, some late-19th- century grand buildings with a whole load of historical monuments. If like me, you have to please the "inner kid" in yourself, then you have to get yourself up and around Wiener Riesenran's giant Ferris wheel. They say if you haven't been on this Giant Ferris Wheel whilst in Vienna, then you haven't really been to Vienna at all. Drinking Ok, so you're bored with all this sightseeing and larking around on Ferris Wheels and you just want to get your 'drink on'. We hear that, but Vienna is not really known for its vibrant bar scene. There are a few "drinking tours" which will bring you some of the more American touristy type drinking dens, but if you're VENTURE TO VIENNA THIS CHRISTMAS! There are only a few places in Europe which exude charm and sophistication like Vienna, with its striking architecture and numerous historical landmarks, Vienna is not just for old people who get excited about dressage horses.
