Home to several of Mozart's first operas, Klimt's home studio, and some of the world's leading musical ensembles, Vienna has long been globally recognized as a center for the arts. But much of what the world knows about its artistic heritage is but a sliver of the story, a violin solo floating atop a swelling orchestra. On this electrifying, five-day journey, we'll delve into the city’s figurative orchestral pit, immersing ourselves in Vienna’s artistic culture of past and present—from the historic coffee houses that have hosted creative salons for centuries to world-renowned musical venues. Alongside local artists, musicians, and historians, we’ll get an insider’s experience of the city, taking a private tour of one of the world’s most stunning concert halls, partaking in a workshop with classical instruments, and to top it all off, in true Viennese fashion, enjoying an intimate Viennese soirée, a sonata in the intimacy of a private apartment.
The total cost of this trip is $2,625. For those traveling solo, single accommodations can be provided, subject to availability, at an additional cost of $330. Please contact us to request a single room.
Our trip begins in Vienna at 6 p.m. on Day 1. For flights or other transport in and out of Vienna, we recommend arriving by 3 p.m. on Day 1, and departing anytime during the morning on Day 5. If you'd like to extend your trip, we’d be more than happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in the city on your own.
Travelers should feel comfortable walking three to five miles over the course of each day. We’ll be traveling mainly by foot, cab, and public transportation throughout Vienna, and taking several walking tours that require standing for long periods of time.
