My home city boasts more than a dozen 16th to 18th century courtyards, called Pawlatschen. What is almost more secret than their locations are the stories around them.

In March, both the Vienna State Opera and the Volksoper Vienna will stage Italians, such as Puccini’s Tosca and Turandot, or Verdi’s Falstaff, Rigoletto and La Traviata . Alternatively, treat yourself to something meaty like Wagner operas The Rhinegold and The Valkyrie.

Other Things to Do in Vienna March: Vienna Woods

Things to do in Vienna March: Heiligenkreuz AbbeyThings to do in Vienna March 2020.  In March, the Vienna Woods are waking up from hibernation. Half a day will be enough for you to explore a diverse range of sites, such as Crownprince Rudolph’s hunting lodge in Mayerling (where he and his girlfriend committed suicide), Helenental valley, historic Heiligenkreuz Abbey, and a spectacular large underground lake. (Check out my Seegrotte Tour Review.) This is a good way to see Vienna’s surroundings and one of the locals favourite weekend spots.
