Vienna offers much to see, from Baroque palaces to world-class museums and classical music history, but Austria’s capital city also serves as an ideal base for exploring other hot spots in central Europe. See below for the top day trips from Vienna.

Bratislava, Slovakia — 40 miles (65 km) away
Just east of Vienna lies Bratislava with its enchanting Old Town and medieval fortifications. Explore 18th-century Rococo palaces, pop into the informative Museum of Jewish Culture, and visit St Martin’s Cathedral, where Hungarian emperors were once crowned. Travel with roundtrip transport from Vienna with the option to upgrade and make the return journey aboard a high-speed catamaran up the Danube River.

Wachau Valley, Austria — 56 miles (90 km) away
Explore the countryside and sample some Austrian wines on a day trip along the Danube River to the Wachau Valley. Learn about the grapes and wines produced here, and perhaps enjoy lunch at a typical Austrian heurige (inn) before exploring the medieval UNESCO World Heritage site of DĂŒrnstein, where English King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned on his way back from the Crusades in 1192.

Budapest, Hungary — 149 miles (240 km) away
East of Vienna over the Hungarian border, Budapest sprawls over the bank of the Danube River. Visit this riverfront city of castles, opera houses, and Baroque architecture on a day trip, and spend your free time experiencing the famous thermal baths. Hear of Budapest’s history from your tour guide before being transported back to Vienna after a full day in the Hungarian capital.

Prague, Czech Republic — 180 miles (290 km) away
Take advantage of Vienna’s position at the heart of central Europe with a day trip to Prague. Dominated by its castle, the city spreads out on both sides of the Vltava River in a charming mix of Gothic and Baroque architecture. See the buzzing Old Town, stroll across the Charles Bridge, or visit historic Wenceslas Square, where the Velvet Revolution brought the end of Communism to Czechoslovakia in 1989.

Salzburg, Austria — 183 miles (295 km) away
Explore the birthplace of Mozart, a city mad on music, on a full-day tour from Vienna. Check out the famed castles, museums, and the Baroque Mirabell Palace with its intricate gardens. The journey is half the fun on this trip, as the road to the city winds past Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang and the snowy peaks of the Alps, providing panoramic mountain views.
