A holiday in Vienna is the perfect way to explore the centre of classical music and opera. The history of music is inextricably bound up with the city. Well-known composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Mahler and Strauss all stayed here for a while. Some musicians' houses have been converted into museums, but most of the composers are honoured in the form of monuments. There is a reference to the past on every street corner. The magnificent building alone makes the Vienna State Opera worth a visit. More than 300 opera performances are staged here every year during the performance season, from 1 September to 30 June. It is seen as the best opera house in the world, and for good reason. Go and see one of the magnificent operas while staying in an apartment in Vienna.

Vienna has many impressive buildings dating from the Baroque period, but other style periods have also made their appearance. The Stephansdom, for example, is the finest landmark in the city, built in the Gothic style. This cathedral, 107 metres long and 34 metres in diameter, is also the largest cathedral in Austria.
