Things to do in winter
The cold season is very suitable for small trips and city trips. We have compiled a few interesting and barrier-free destinations for you in and around Austria.
City trips are very suitable for the mild weather in winter and spring. How about a trip to one of the capitals of the Austrian federal states? The Czech Renaissance city of Krumau is also easily accessible by train, with its impressive castle and its almost unchanged appearance since 1850.
The "Light Travel – Barrier-free Vacation Destinations in Germany" and "Barrier-Free Austria" working groups, in cooperation with Deutsche Bahn, offer all-round carefree travel packages for different cities and regions. On the homepages you can request offers for trips to sights or nature experiences in Austria and Germany free of charge and without obligation.
Museums and exhibitions
Museums are popular destinations, especially in winter. Mostly located in cities, they can also be easily reached by public transport. For example, since the end of October, the Weltmuseum Wien has reopened its doors after three years of renovation. In the total of 14 showrooms, surprising connections between Austria and the world are often made visible with the help of 3,127 objects as well as numerous photos and text panels. Highlights include the collection of the navigator James Cook and the world-famous feather headdress of a Mexican priest.
Exhibition lovers will find a brochure on accessible museums in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and other European countries at museum.de.
Musical, opera and theater
In spring 2019 there will also be some musical and acting highlights. From the beginning of February, for example, “DER KLEINE PRINZ – das Musical” can be seen in Salzburg, “Mamma Mia” in Vienna all January and the family musical “ALICE HINTER DER SPIEGELN” in Graz’s Next Liberty. The classic “Biedermann and the arsonists” can be seen in the Theater in der Josefstadt from the beginning of February.
In order to be able to enjoy a short trip in a relaxed manner, a vacation of several days with overnight stays is recommended, especially on longer journeys. If you are looking for a suitable hotel room that also meets the accessibility requirements, you can find it on various portals.
