Vienna – images of the empress Sissi, the large park “Prater” and the famous (and delicious) Sachertorte chocolate cake come to mind! Aside from all that, Vienna also provides the perfect conditions for a skiing adventure. Surrounded by the federal state Lower Austria, the capital lies in the center of the Alpine republic. Many ski resorts, like for example the Zauberberg or the Stuhleck are situated close to the metropolis that's home to 1.7 million inhabitants. The go-to ski resort of the Viennese is called Hohe Wand Wiese. This resort lies in the western part of the city and is very popular among locals and tourists alike because of its proximity to the city. With public transportation you can reach the resort easily, which is why it is perfect for spontaneous day trips to the slopes! After skiing, winter sport enthusiasts can trade their ski jacket for a disco outfit and discover nightlife in Vienna. If you are staying in the city longer, you can combine your skiing experience with a nice Sightseeing-Tour to catch a glimpse of Café Sacher, St. Stephen's Cathedral and Schönbrunn Palace!
Reaching Vienna by car is no problem – simply take highway A8 or A1. You'll be there a lot faster when traveling by plane using Vienna International Airport as your destination.
