What to Do in Vienna in Winter 2020

Vienna is a city of incredible architecture, culture and history that shines even in the darkest months. Between December and April, the average temperature is in the mid 30s to low 40s. But do not fret, there are a lot of indoor activities available. Known as a city of high art and music there are over 100 museums and galleries in Vienna dedicated from everything from ancient artifacts to modern street art. It is not uncommon for museums here to keep the doors open until late in the evening. Some of the most famous establishments include the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Hofburg and the Sigmund Freud Museum. Opera fans can buy tickets to attend the Vienna Opera Ball, held the Thursday before Ash Wednesday. This formal ball and social event transforms the National Opera into a palace of dance. If you want an outdoor activity the Vienna Ice World is a picturesque skating ring right outside Vienna City Hall, particularly beautiful at night with all the lights on. Of course, if you really want a nice break from the cold than head to Therme Wien for a spa day with indoor and outdoor heated pools, steam rooms and massage facilities. A compact city car is recommended for exploring the sometimes-narrow streets of Vienna. And be sure to ask about the availability of winter tires.
