Beyond the likes of Paris and Rome, a city like Vienna can also work as a romantic destination. Sure, Austrians aren't exactly the most romantic people out there, but their capital itself is so beautiful it can rival the aforementioned cities. There's grandiosity and opulence about Vienna that make one's heart flutter. Not to mention the history of the place, having been the home of many prominent figures throughout many fields, a good number of which were notorious for their escapades in romance. So when you get to Vienna, you might just find some spots that will make your heart skip a beat. Here are some prime examples.

The Top Five Most Romantic Spots in Vienna


Schönbrunn Palace Gardens

Is there any place more romantic than the well-manicured gardens of a palace? Particularly a place like the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna? Having served as Emperor Franz Joseph I's 18th-century summer residence, these gardens have likely seen many romantic trysts, passionate moments, love scandals, and more. If you ever have a free day to spend in Vienna with your significant other, make sure to include this as one of the places you'll visit! Walking through the beautiful flower beds, well-cut hedges, and ornate fountains will probably be one of the best dates you'll have in the Austrian capital.

Hofburg Palace

Another palace worth visiting as a couple in Vienna is Hofburg Palace, the actual residence of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth 'Sisi' of Austria. Nowadays, the opulent landmark serves as a museum all about the famous royal couple and of the history and legacy of the Hamburg monarchy. You can spend hours and hours learning about some of the most important figures in Austria's history here, but what really makes this place a perfect date spot is its beauty and grandeur. Though cliche, going here via a horse-drawn carriage is peak Viennese romance! You might as well consider yourselves as the protagonists of your own classic romance novel.

Wiener Staatsoper

For any music-lover who went to Vienna simply because it's considered the 'capital of classic music,' Wiener Staatsoper is a must-see! Located in the Innere Stadt district in Vienna, It's here where countless historic composers have performed and their most iconic works are still performed here to this very day. Once the toast of Viennese high society back in the day, it reeks of romance, especially its magnificent Renaissance Revival architecture. Watching the annual Vienna Opera Ball, which is also held here every spring, makes for a great date idea too. Seeing the lovely debutantes dance the waltz will surely fill your head with all sorts of romantic fancy.

Tanzschule Elmayer

Speaking of dancing in Vienna, you can learn the waltz yourself if you enroll at 'Tanzschule Elmayer,' also known as the Elmayer Dance School! Founded in 1919, it's the most prestigious ballroom dance school, not just in Vienna, but in all of Austria! If you want to glide and swish around the like the princesses you've seen in Disney movies or read about in classic novels, this is the best place to learn the movies. Though it can get pretty technical, it's still a great way to spend time with your special someone and get into the fantasy of grand classical romance in Vienna.

Esterházykeller

Finally, there's Esterházykelle, Esterházy Palace's own wine tavern. Though the palace itself is a grand landmark that you can tour and see in full glory, you can always escape to this charming 17th-century heurige (wine tavern) and get your fill of authentic Austrian wine. The entire place is pretty novel as it transports you back a couple of centuries, what with the brick interior and wooden booths. With its intimate lighting and space, you can simply enjoy each other's company as you sip wine and gradually get into the mood. What's not to love?
