General Information

Vienna is one of the world's most popular conference destinations, one of the sites of the United Nations, an international music capital and a junction for European business and culture.

In Vienna, the Imperial City, you can walk in the footsteps of the Habsburgs, visit the splendid baroque Palace Schönbrunn and the Spanish Riding School, or stroll along the magnificent Ring Boulevard – in 2015, Vienna celebrates the 150th birthday of the Ringstrasse – and take a look at the heart of the former vast Habsburg Empire, the Imperial Palace. In Vienna, the Metropolis of Music, you can strike the right note at first-rate concerts and enjoy an unrivalled selection of music - from opera to musical.

More famous composers have lived here than in any other city – in Vienna, music is literally in the air: waltzes and operettas have their home here, and so do musicals "made in Vienna", which have conquered international audiences.

In the capital of coffeehouse culture, you can enjoy a golden Mélange and Apfelstrudel in one of the famous Vienna coffeehouses, second home to artists and thinkers such as Arthur Schnitzler, Gustav Klimt, Adolf Loos and even Leon Trotsky.

Note that the Mercer Survey once again in 2015 ranked Vienna as number one for quality of life. Click here for the news article (in German, 4 March 2015).
