Vienna, the capital of Austria, is one of the most visited cities in Europe (for obvious reasons!). Often considered the continent’s culture capital, is famous for its romance, music, art, architecture, and more. This beautiful city is located in Eastern Austria, on the Danube River and near the country’s borders with the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Many charming towns, villages, and cities surround the capital, many of them discoverable through day trips from Vienna. In this post, I’ll be writing about three of the most popular day trips destinations from Vienna: Bratislava, Hallstatt, and Salzburg. All three of these cities are under three hours away from Vienna, the perfect distance for a perfect day trip!
