Vienna’s Art and Music + A Pilgrim’s Route into the Wiener Alps

April 7 – 15, 2020

Mozart  |  Gustav Klimt  |  Franz Josef and Sisi  |  Beethoven et al

Springtime In Vienna! 

A great time to explore the fantastic layout and architecture of the city, imbibe in its cultural treats, then head out by private car into the nearby Weiner Alps. We’ll spend four nights in Vienna, near central Stephansplatz; then three nights in two lovely Victorian alpine hotels. In Vienna, we will visit art museums highlighting the world’s masters, including Vienna’s own Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt; and we’ll enjoy the city’s lovely Jugendstil architecture. We’ll attend performances at the likes of the Musikverein; we’ll visit the lovely Staatsoper. We’ll drive out of the city through local wine regions, into the alpine valleys favored by the royal family. Our route will take us into the inner sanctum of the mountains (vistas, waterfalls, forests in spring), and to alpine churches sought by medieval pilgrims for their restorative powers.
