from £495pp

Based on 5 days

Suitable for Secondary Schools


Vienna is the capital of music.  More famous composers have lived and created here than in any other city – in Vienna, music is literally in the air!

Almost every street in Vienna city centre can recount stories of famous composers - including Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart, Brahms, Gluck, Johann Strauss, Salieri, Schubert, Schönberg and many more. 

There is also the unrivalled Vienna Boys Choir - Sunday Mass at the medieval chapel of the Hofburg Palace is an excellent opportunity to listen to their angelic voices but tickets have to be purchased well in advance.

Also, just a few hours away from Vienna you can visit Salzburg, Mozart’s birthplace and a graceful city with beautiful views. Perfect for a day trip!
