Gone on the days where we’d buy a huge paper map of a city and a book which is five years out of date, we’re all turning to YouTube to fuel our wanderlust. As part of a series, we’ll be looking at the videos which make us want to jet off right now.

First stop? Vienna, Austria. Why did we pick this place to kick things off? Why not? People usually start out with Paris, London, Berlin or Amsterdam so we figured we’d shake things up a little.

From the historical sights the city has to offer to its bold and beautiful festivals, here are the videos from those who have trekked their way through and vlogged along the way…

Tamara Kalinic’s Guide To Vienna

If you’re not familiar with Tamara, she’s a Brighton based fashion and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber with a big love of travel. Tamara heads round Vienna’s museums, to the beautiful Belvedere Palace and shows off some delicious looking food (cake for breakfast, anyone?)


Five Days In Vienna

Jenny brings us along on her journey as she takes in everything from the historic buildings in the First District to the Tiergarten zoo. If you’re looking to make a list of must-see sights and attractions, this is a great place to start.


Shopping in Vienna

If you want to take a day to hit the shops, Slovakian Ajvn takes us around a typical day in the city with her friend. From taking in the sights of the beautiful Belvedere Palace to beauty shopping and Starbucks lounging, this video gives a really great insight into what the Austrian High Street has to offer.


The New York Times Guide To Vienna

As you’d expect from the New York Times, this video is as well researched and thought out as they come. With the locals recommending their favourite places to the best restaurants, cafes and museums in town, it’s certainly one to add to your travelling playlist.


London to Vienna by train

If there was ever a reason to want to go inter railing across Europe, this video is it. From heading off on the Eurostar from London to Brussels (it takes as little as 2 hours) to the sights of Europe from the comfort of a sleeper train, travel author and blogger Mark’s video shows why you should consider an alternative route.
