How to Celebrate Valentine's Day in Vienna
With the noisy carnival season in full swing, where in Vienna do lovers go for some intimate, quiet Valentine's Day bliss? Those in need of some relaxation and decadence can treat themselves to a unique chocolate massage at the world-famous Hotel Sacher. The birthplace of the Sacher Torte is also home to a spa that offers "Time To Chocolate" treatments for two. For couples who enjoy the outdoors, try a romantic ice skating date between the neo-gothic City Hall and historic Burgtheater before climbing up to the new SkyRink terrace on the second floor. Or, for those who'd rather see their partner's head on a plate (and enjoy other hilarious novelties), a visit to the Museum of Illusions makes for a terrific couples' outing.
