The world’s capital of art and music for much of the last two centuries, Vienna is one of the most richly rewarding destinations for a cultural short break. Kirker’s four-night itinerary includes Klimt at the Leopold Museum, the old masters at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and a performance at the famous Vienna State Opera.
Vienna was the undisputed centre of musical life from the mid-18th century until the early years of the twentieth. As the capital of a vast and wealthy empire, Vienna was able to provide all the conditions for musical creativity to flourish on a magnificent scale. The works of an impressive list of composers, some of whom were not even Austrian, let alone Viennese, are woven into the fabric of life in Vienna to this day. Artists too made Vienna the centre of cultural Europe from the late 19th century. Add to this the beauty and grandeur of the city’s architecture and its great art collections, and you have one of the world’s leading cultural destinations.
