Top Reasons to Visit Vienna as a Newly-Single Traveller

Breakups are never easy to deal with and are unfortunately not very easy to avoid either. In fact, more than 64% of people have to deal with the breakup of a long-term relationship at some point in their lives. Although there are many ways to deal with a terminated relationship, solo travel may be just what you need to refocus, grow, and heal emotionally.  If you have not already had your heart set on a post-breakup travel destination, Vienna should definitely be on your list. The capital of Austria has been voted the most livable city in the world numerous times with very good reason. Apart from its musical legacy, it is also home to a bustling art scene, spectacular vineyards, and the world-renowned Vienna Woods. Here are a few reasons why visiting Vienna as a newly single traveller is a brilliant idea.

There are tons of cafes aimed at solo travellers

There are few things that are quite as good for the soul as sitting down with a delectable slice of cake and a cup of freshly brewed coffee and watching the people around you go about their day. Thankfully, Vienna has no shortage of charming cafes that are ideal for a bout of people-watching. During winter, these cafes also offer refuge from the frosty weather. If you are traveling during summer, however, you can take your people-watching up a notch by sitting outside and soak up some sun while indulging in the doings of others.

You can make new friends

If you have secretly been hoping to reunite with your ex but they have told you to move on or are avoiding contact with you altogether, chances are good it’s not going to happen. While you may not be eager to rush into your next relationship, there is nothing wrong with making new friends. One of the easiest ways to meet new friends is by taking a group tour to Vienna that is designed for singles. Chances are you won’t be the only person on the tour who recently went through a breakup and you night end up forging lifelong friendships with other travellers. Another way to make friends while in Vienna is to frequent places where you might find like-minded individuals. If you love music, for example, consider attending a few live music events where you are bound to run into friendly individuals who share your passions.

You can experience some childlike pleasure

Although Vienna is known for its cathedrals, museums, and classical music venues, there is also plenty of opportunities to just let your hair down, have fun, and forget about your breakup, even if only momentarily.  Prater Park is an old-school entertainment park that features a number of small roller coasters, bumper cars, and the world-famous Wiener Riesenrad – a gorgeous, giant Ferris Wheel that dates back to the late 1800s. There are, in total, more than 250 attractions at Prater Park which further includes cafes and restaurants, puppet shows, ghost trains, and flight simulators. Even if you are not looking for a day of exhilarating adventure, you can still have a great time at the Park by simply walking around and taking in the surrounding scenery.

Vienna is a wonderful place for newly single travellers. While your travels may not completely mend your broken heart, it may help you to find yourself and heal.
