December 27, 2013–January 3, 2014
Winter is a magical time to experience Vienna. During a one-week stay at the landmark Hotel Sacher, view paintings at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, see one of the world's finest collections of drawings at the Albertina Museum, and tour the Vienna Secession Museum. At the Spanish Riding School, witness a performance by the famed Lipizzaner Stallions. During a waltz lesson at a historic dance school, practice your steps before you toast the New Year at the lavish Imperial Ball. Of course, any visit to Vienna would be incomplete without music; enjoy a recital by a leading pianist in the intimate setting of her home and attend a traditional New Year's Day performance at the renowned Vienna State Opera.
