2009 marks 200 years since the death of classical Austrian composer Joseph Haydn. Why not visit the city of Vienna as it celebrates the life of this legendary artist?

Haydn has secured reverential status in the city of Vienna after spending a long period of his life composing works in the city, eventually dying here at the age of 77 shortly after an attack on the city by French troops under Napoleon.

Throughout the course of the year, Vienna will commemorate the death of the great composer - who is affectionately known as 'Papa Haydn' - through a series of concerts and performances of his works.

You too can savour his splendid compositions with a visit to this cultural and fascinating city on a flight from Belfast Airport. And, if you are planning to fly from Belfast, you may also be interested in pre-booking an overnight stay at the Belfast Park Plaza airport hotel before your flight. Situated on-site at the airport, just 50 metres from the terminal buildings, this popular 4-star airport hotel provides modern facilities and friendly, helpful staff.

Room at the Belfast Park Plaza with up to eight days' holiday parking from £108*
