    Survivor Guide: Visiting Vienna


    Known for its romantic scenery and architecture, Vienna is the largest and most visited city in Austria. Couples might enjoy a horse-drawn carriage tour to admire the beautiful old buildings or admire the city from above on the Giant Ferris Wheel. There are also a number of restaurants serving local cuisine and visitors can enjoy stopping in at one of many museums during their trip. Visit the Art History Museum to admire some European art or climb the staggering 343 steps to the viewing area of St. Stephen’s Cathedral and admire the view. As with any trip abroad, distractions are rife therefore, it is wise to be aware of some safety issues when visiting your chosen destination.

    A guide to safety when visiting Vienna

    As far as tourist destinations go, Vienna is relatively safe. However, the usual travel precautions should still apply so:

    • Carry your wallet in your front pocket
    • Ensure your handbag is closed and held in front of you
    • Be vigilant when at cash machines
    • Don’t carry a lot of cash around
    • Be aware of street scammers preying on tourists

    Vienna also has a number of cycle paths so take care not to walk in front of fast-moving bicycles. You may not fall prey to pickpockets or scam artists but you may have an accident or sustain an injury as a result of someone’s negligence. This may include accidents during poorly-supervised excursions, injuries in your hotel due to poor maintenance or travel accidents due to driver negligence. You may even sustain an illness due to poor hygiene at your hotel restaurant or while swimming in the pool. However, there is something you can do about it.

    How can I hold the travel company liable?

    If your holiday was booked as part of a package and you sustained an injury during your flights, transfers, excursions or at the hotel, then Accident Advice Helpline can make a compensation claim to the travel company on your behalf. You should have booked your package holiday with a UK company for UK personal injury law to apply. Our expert team are recommended by consumer champion Esther Rantzen who shares our belief in the right to compensation if you have an accident that is someone else’s fault. Even if you are abroad, you are covered by UK laws so call us on our free 24-hour phone line to see how we can help.
