the city of dreams
Vienna’s breathtaking beauty, music, literature, art, and rich cultural legacy make it an ideal destination. One of the great European capitals, Vienna was for centuries the stomping ground of the powerful Habsburg monarchy. The empire is long gone, but reminders have been carefully preserved by the tradition-loving Viennese. Baroque streetscapes and imperial palaces set the stage for Vienna's artistic and musical masterpieces alongside its coffee-house culture and vibrant epicurean and design scenes.
Enjoy a 3 night stay at The Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel in a double Imperial club room including a bottle of wine upon arrival and club lounge access with buffet breakfast, midday snacks, and afternoon tea. A stylish mix of traditional and contemporary design, the building once served as a military riding school in the mid-19th century. The hotel is centrally located within easy walking distance to the city center, opera, concert halls, theaters and museums.
Attend a performance at the Spanish Riding School of the world-famous Lipizzaner horses, Europe’s oldest domesticated breed of horses, accompanied by classical Viennese music. The “Ballet of the White Stallions” takes place in the unique, baroque Winter Riding School at Hofburg Palace.
