3 fantastic destinations for your 25th of April holidays
If, by now, you haven’t decided yet on what to do during your 25th of April holidays we might just have the answer. With up to 5 days off, you could take a trip to Vienna for the Keith Haring exhibition, relax in a brand new luxury spa in Tyrol or even enjoy the first hikes of the season in the mountains.
For city lovers: Vienna
What was once a brothel is, nowadays, a 4-star boutique hotel located just right in the heart of the beautiful and cultural city of Vienna. In the lively Biedermeier neighbourhood, not far off from the Museum Quartier and the Naschmarkt, you can find the Hotel Beethoven Wien ****. From here, you can reach any exhibition, event or attraction on foot.
Right now, Albertina Museum is hosting an unmissable Keith Haring exhibition. This outstanding artist, friends with Andy Warhol, became famous with his “Subway Drawings” (graphic creations drawn in the subway) and died at the young age of 32. This year, in 2018, he would have celebrated his 60th birthday. To mark this occasion, Albertina Museum has displayed about 100 pieces of Keith Haring’s work, which convey a strong message against the excessive power of government, oppression towards minorities, prejudice and violence. Admission: 12.9€.
The Hotel Beethoven Wien **** has just reopened its doors after a spectacular renovation, which includes 47 rooms in different styles, ranging from Biedermeier to Art Nouveau. You will be surrounded by art and culture even while sleeping!
For those who need a break: Seefeld in Tyrol
If you are looking for peace and quietness this is where you will want to be. The Astoria Resort Seefeld ***** re-opens on the 26th of April and was planned for an adult public who is looking for a nice retreat and for those traveling with their canine friends.
This “5-star superior” is part of the 21 best hotels in Austria. Its position, in Seefel – Tyrol, is just a few hours away from busy and restless Milano. Imagine yourself, immersed in the water, looking at the breath-taking alpine scenery that surrounds this resort. Being pampered from morning to evening in the Astoria-Alpin-Aktiv Spa wellness centre with massages, pools and endless possibilities of relaxation. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?
Rates starting from € 169 per person with a ¾ pension.
For fresh air addicts
Mountains, mountains and bit more of mountains. These are the ingredients for a weekend in Kitzbühel. Just some meters away from the Streif Valley station, the most spectacular and downhill ski race track in the world, is the Kaiserhof Kitzbühel *****. The name speaks for itself, as it can be translated to “the court of emperors”. A boutique hotel, closely located to Kitzbühel’s old town centre, where you can both enjoy the Ski’s World Cup from your balcony in winter as a panoramic view over the valley during spring and summer.
Over here, the best transportation method is your own feet; it’s the perfect starting point for easy hikes in the mountains. And, if you are tired after walking your shoes off, you can relax at the Spa or stroll through the streets of Kitzbühel, admiring the boutiques of famous designers.
Which one will you choose?
Have a good holiday!
