The best of Vienna on a budget

Vienna is a remarkably active city in winter, the main arts and performance season. Avoid tourist traps and you can make the most out of the Austrian capital, even on the cheap.
The Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera)

Museums and galleries


The sensational Dorotheum is among the largest auction houses in Europe and for the casual visitor it’s more like a museum than an auction space, housing everything from vintage toys and tableware to autographs, antique guns and, above all, lots of quality paintings. Auctions take place almost daily(; Dorotheergasse 17; 10am–6pm Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm Sat; free entry).


The Museum für Angewandte Kunst is devoted to craftsmanship and art forms in everyday life. Each exhibition room showcases a different style, from Renaissance to the distinctive metalwork of the 20th-century Wiener Werkstätte. Be sure to see Klimt’s studies for his mosaic frieze at Brussels’ Palais Stoclet (; Stubenring 5; 10am–6pm Wed–Sun, to 10pm Tue, tours in English noon Sun; £7.50, free 6p m–10pm Tue).
