Best arty things to do in Vienna this winter
With its rich heritage in theatre, classical music and opera, Vienna has long been a cultural capital of Europe. But for one week in November, the art cognoscenti descend on the city for Vienna Art Week (19 - 25 Nov).
The jam-packed programme, curated by artistic director Robert Punkenhofer, boats a wealth of free talks, tours, events and exhibitions that highlight Vienna's status as a thriving global hub of contemporary art.
But there are so many more artsy things to do in Vienna this winter beyond Vienna Art Week. From a once-in-a-lifetime Bruegel exhibition to permanent installations by contemporary art superstars, here's why any art lover should book a mini-break to Vienna this winter.
