Welcome to Vienna!
When Schloss Schönbrunn, Stephansdom, Prater and Sachertorte immediately come to mind when thinking about Vienna, then these are only the familiar highlights of this diverse and exceedingly trendy city along the Danube. For Vienna bristles with energy and a zest for life. Anyone who visits Vienna is traveling through two worlds. One leads to the historical splendor of the Kaiser period, the other to a UN city and a central European metropolis, characterized by a wide range of cultures and nationalities.
Pomp and circumstance at the metropolis along the Danube
When traveling in a horse–drawn carriage along the magnificent facades of the capital city along the Danube, a detour to the Hofburg, with the Spanish riding school and to the Sisi Museum is a must-see every bit as much as a quick jog to the world's oldest zoo, or to the Central Cemetery where the towering Ludwig van Beethoven rests in peace.
If you still have energy left after having made the obligatory coffee house visit and gone on a shopping spree, the pubs, restaurants, and project rooms at the Vienna Museum Quarter (MQ) beckon to the creative part of town with a vivacious nightlife. This is also where the Vienna fashion scene is at home with its own showrooms. Or how about a visit to the legendary Burgtheater, the second oldest theater in Europe?
Contrasting facets of tradition to modernity
But Vienna is also an internationally ranked venue for congresses, conference and trade shows, with facilities operated by important organizations such as the UN offices or OPEC.
