Vienna, Austria Cruise Port

Best known as a capital for music during the 18th century, this grand city, which has beautiful theaters and opera houses, was ruled by the Habsburg family. Emperor Karl VI was especially fond of music and arts and it is believed his love of the arts led to many composers choosing to work in Vienna. Two of the city’s most notable composers are Mozart – who moved to the city in 1781 – and Beethoven, who moved to Vienna in 1792.  The legacy of these composers weighs heavy in the city as you can attend performances of their works among other famous Viennese musicians. Aside from the music, travelers also cruise to Vienna for the city’s magnificent Baroque buildings built during the city’s most prosperous time. Featured below are a few of our favorite experiences for the cruise port of Vienna, Austria:
 
  • Experience the grandeur of imperial Vienna with a show of the Lippanzer Stallions, white stallions that prance and gallop in a choreographed routine for onlookers.
