Vienna Events Guide March 20th-22nd
Experience Vienna at its best during a European river cruise with these fantastic events.
 
On Friday evening, a performance of Nureyev’s Swan Lake will be delighting audiences at the Vienna Opera House in what is one of the city’s most eagerly anticipated events. This reinterpretation of the famous ballet gives the male more of a pivotal role, making it an unmissable unique event.
 
Vienna is renowned for its Ball Season, and this weekend is no different with Der Ball de Sports taking place on 21st March. It’s the event that all sports enthusiasts both want to be at and be seen at, as it is one of the biggest social events of its kind in the sporting calendar, where people can mingle with elite athletes and celebrities.
 
This Saturday will see the opening of the 13th annual Easter market in the baroque surroundings of Schönbrunn Palace. The colourful fair boasts everything from creative Easter decorations and freshly prepared Viennese snacks to musical entertainment and crafty workshops.

The ultimate river cruise experience
At Scenic Tours, we call our approach ‘ultra-all-inclusive’ because we’ve taken what you’d expect from an all-inclusive river cruise to a whole new level. Absolutely everything is included in the price of your river cruise, even the luxuries you’d presume to pay extra for. Simply put, you can quite feasibly just bring your passport, and leave your wallet at home.

It's also worth noting that you can choose to depart from up to 15 UK airports, so you can fly to your ship from the airport that’s closest and most convenient for you, without worrying about hidden supplements or charges*.

If you'd prefer not to fly, you can also take the Eurostar. It’s a wonderfully relaxing way to meet your cruise. And of course, on river cruises where travel by rail is possible, it’s included in the price.

All-inclusive Unlike other operators, to us, all-inclusive means that once you’ve paid for your cruise, you needn’t spend a penny more. From your flights; accommodation; all meals and drinks; all excursions and
experiences to even the Wi-Fi on-board are included in the price. Not to mention all port charges, transfers, airport taxes and tips saving you up to £850 per couple throughout your cruise.
