Best time to go? I’ve been to Vienna in the summer when it’s reached 28 degrees celsius, but my favourite time of year to visit is in December for the Christmas markets. Vienna in the snow is picturesque and incredibly romantic.
Travel companions? I travelled with a group of 15 UK fashion editors and PR’s. But Vienna is the perfect city for romantic weekends away, cultured short breaks with friends or why not take your mum? She’ll love it.
Top tip? No trip to Vienna is complete without a night at the opera. Its quite easy to buy tickets on the day, but if you’re an opera aficionado make sure you book well in advance so you get the seats you want.
