Vienna & Salzburg: Palaces, Villas, and Gardens
Join Curt DiCamillo, NEHGS Curator of Fine Art, and noted Austrian guides on a journey to Vienna and Salzburg—cities of unparalleled elegance and culture! There will be dancing stallions, pitch-perfect choir boys, hidden architectural gems, and unexpected art collections. We will have special early access to great museums and palaces, dine at fine restaurants, and savor music in Europe’s undisputed musical capital. A day along the Danube will feature ancient abbeys and stunning vistas and two full days in Salzburg will allow us to view alpine meadows and explore magnificent gardens and historic houses.
We will stay in two centrally located five-star luxury hotels. In Vienna, we’ll be based at the 150-year-old Hotel Imperial, voted one of Travel + Leisure’s 500 Best Hotels in the World in 2022. Furnished with historic antiques, the Hotel Imperial is the perfect combination of timeless elegance and state-of-the-art facilities and amenities. Our home in Salzburg will be the Hotel Goldener Hirsch, the impeccable blending of a hunting lodge and a boutique hotel. Located just steps away from Mozart’s birthplace in the heart of the city’s old town, the 15th century hotel looks like something out of a fairy tale. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the very best art, architecture, gardens, music, and cuisine as we visit the sumptuous palaces, splendid villas, and romantic landscapes of Austria!
