Leaning into Vienna’s culture of pleasure, imperial artisanship and high art, the video follows an elegant woman through iconic destinations like the Vienna State Opera, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, Hotel Sacher and the Spanish Riding School.

Dressed by some of Vienna’s top artisan designers, the woman showcases some of the city’s top luxury goods and experiences.

With some of the world best high-end shopping, gourmet food and glamourous sights, it’s no wonder Vienna was named as 2021’s Most Desirable Destination by luxury travel network Traveller Made.

Clients with a taste for the finer things in life will be dazzled by Vienna’s exclusive shopping district, the Goldenes Quartier.

Situated in the Old City and surrounded by the residences and palaces of royalty, clients can peruse the finest quality handcrafted treasures made by former royal court purveyors that once supplied the imperial household.

Alongside flagship stores of the most discerning designer houses, top-quality jewels from Cartier, Chopard and Tiffany are displayed alongside traditional Viennese firms such as Wagner, Bucherer and Schullin.

Gourmet foodies will be spoiled for choice by the 133 Viennese restaurants currently holding the coveted toques of Gault & Millau, and a further 13 sharing a total of nineteen Michelin stars.

The iconic Amador holds three stars alone, and four others boast two stars each, including the Steirereck im Stadtpark, Konstantin Filippou, the Silvio Nickol Gourmet Restaurant in Palais Coburg and the restaurant Mraz & Sohn.

But we all know when it comes to luxury travel, exclusivity goes a long way.

Your clients will adore the private experiences on offer from Vienna’s most sought-after cultural institutions including the Albertina, Belvedere and Kunsthistorisches Museums, and the Wiener Konzerthaus concert hall.

Vienna is ready and waiting to pamper your luxury travel clients with decadent experiences and visual feasts.
