ABR Vienna Tour 2023
13–24 October 2023
Following on from our successful pre-pandamic international tours, ABR and Academy Travel hosted a cultural tour to Vienna in late 2023.
Vienna is city of palaces and gardens, museums and music, tradition and modernity. For more than four hundred years it was the jewel in the glittering imperial crown of the Hapsburgs.
The city’s wealth, at its zenith, is illustrated in its magnificent architecture, extraordinary collections of fine and decorative art, and a musical legacy that includes some of the greatest names of classical music. As the empire waned, the city embraced modernity with the revolutionary art and architecture of the Secessionists and Sigmund Freud’s work in psychoanalysis.
Our 12-day residential tour, led by art historian Christopher Menz and ABR Editor Peter Rose, explored the city in depth, following in the footsteps of Mozart and Beethoven, Otto Wagner and Gustav Klimt, and took us into the surrounding countryside as we cruised the mighty Danube to the beautiful Wachau Valley and down to Bratislava.
Of course, in this city of music, our tour also included best possible seats to four selected performances.
