Vienna History

Prices from: £259 (4 Days, 3 Nights)

Vienna is a city steeped in rich historical culture having played a significant part in the Cold War and World War II, making it a perfect destination to explore on a History school trip with Adaptable Travel.

Vienna’s vibrant history is also highlighted in its architecture with a number of different styles seen throughout the city including Baroque and Gothic mixed in with modern designs.

There are a number of interesting visits in the city that showcase the history of Austria and make it a great destination for school trips.  One must see is the Austrian resistance archives.  This permanent exhibition details and displays items from a number of important periods of the country’s history but mainly focuses on its resistance to the regime of Nazi Germany.

Stevenage GB
The accommodation was spacious and rooms had the basics. The really good thing was that the staff patrol the corridors after 10.30 so you don't have to worry about students at night.

The bus that picked us up at the airport was in a not so obvious place but that was fine once we found it.
