The Ultimate New Year's Eve Holiday Ideas

Refinery29 Logo By Emily Zemler of Refinery29 | Slide 1 of 10: Like many big European cities, every December Vienna fills with travellers for the New Year. But the Austrian city is a good pick if Paris or London feels too obvious. Vienna kicks off its party at 2pm on New Year’s Eve, inviting people to follow its New Year’s Eve Trail, where vendors serve up booze and eats, and entertainment options abound. At midnight, there are the traditional fireworks, which you can watch with the crowd on the streets or from a boat along the Danube. It’s a massive, lively going-on and will make you feel like a real part of the action as the clock chimes 12. Of course, you’re in Vienna, so make sure you’re not too hungover to enjoy the artsy city to its fullest. Book a room at the <a href="http://www.altstadt.at/en/">Hotel Altstadt Vienna</a>, a stylish property that offers both traditional hotel rooms and apartments. Be sure to grab a cocktail at <a href="http://puff-bar.at/">Puff</a>, a trendy bar housed in a former brothel.
