The $1,099 package price (which rises to $1,449 per person for travel between May 14 and August 28) includes round-trip, economy-class air transportation from either New York JFK or Washington Dulles; three nights hotel accommodation in the customer’s choice of Vienna, Prague or Budapest; daily buffet breakfast; and hotel service charges and hotel taxes.

Travel is valid any day of the week, subject to availability. All hotels featured in the City Steals are centrally located, superior tourist class properties, such as the Clima City Hotel in Vienna, Hotel Chopin in Prague and City Hotel Matyas in Budapest.

Customers are also able to combine all three Central European cities in one vacation with the ‘Imperial City Steal’ vacation package starting at $1,699 per person, double occupancy. This 10-day vacation includes economy-class round-trip air from New York or Washington, D.C., plus three nights each (nine nights total) in Prague, Vienna and Budapest, as well as rail transportation between the three cities. During peak season, the package price is $2,099 per person.

Austrian Airlines’ vacation packages offer flexibility for customers to stay in Europe up to 30 days, and customers can use the hotel nights at the beginning or the end of their trips, as long as they use them consecutively. Additionally, one optional stop-over in Vienna is allowed, so customers selecting a City Steal beyond Vienna can add some extra days in Vienna on the way to or from their final destinations. (Additional hotel nights are extra). Single supplements, upgrades, additional combinations and extensions are available upon request.

Vienna has a famous amusement park called the Prater, located near the River Danube (called the Donau in German). The Prater is dominated by a large Ferris wheel
