We recommend taking a tour in the evening, when the monuments and streets of the Inner Stadt are bathed in bright golden light. You can also find carriages lined up at Stephansplatz, Albertinaplatz and in front of the Hofburg, with their luxurious seats and coachmen in period costumes.

5. Spend a day as a king in the Hofburg

The Hofburg was the center of Habsburg power for over 600 years. The palace houses the imperial apartments, including Empress Sissi’s suite with the Great Drawing Room, which is considered the most beautiful room in the complex. The treasury contains two imperial crowns, priceless ornate jewels and even one of the largest emeralds in the world.

Why not make your stay in Vienna even more memorable by taking a waltz lesson? The Quintessential Waltz House organizes hundreds of dances during the three peak months of the season, which usually lasts from November through January and February.

In addition to the dance season, you can learn to waltz at one of the city’s countless dance schools, one of which is Tanzschule Elmayer, which offers 50-minute lessons for couples.

7. Try the Austrian wines from Esterhzykeller

Esterhzykeller, or “Esterhazy Cellar,” is a famous 17th-century tavern located in the Baroque Esterhazy Palace on Wallnerstrasse. To gain access to this Heurige (the name given to taverns in eastern Austria), you must cross the palace’s paved courtyard. Inside, brick vaults and tables with wooden benches make it the perfect place for an evening out with friends.

Here you can sample classic Viennese cuisine accompanied by an incredible selection of local wines such as Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. The tavern has become one of the symbols of Viennese history and culture, as Haydn, Mozart and Viennese royalty have spent their free time here since the 1600s.

8. Treat yourself to a chocolate spa treatment

There is no sweeter and more romantic place in Vienna than Caf Sacher, where the world-famous Viennese chocolate cake known as Zacher cake was born in the 19th century. Red velvet, sumptuous chandeliers and gilded oil painting frames will take you on a journey back in time as you sample a gourmet slice of Sacher cake, from the crispy chocolate icing to the apricot jam.

The Sacher Wien, which also houses the famous café, has a special spa: the Sacher Boutique Spa. If you’re a true chocolate lover, you can’t miss the 90-minute “Symphony of Chocolate” treatment, a chocolate body mask, cocoa peeling and relaxing massage exclusively with chocolate-based products.

There is nothing more romantic than spending an evening at the Vienna State Opera. The red and gold horseshoe-shaped hall, in which the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs, is the center and reference point for opera and ballet around the world.
