Vienna is considered one of the most beautiful and interesting capitals in the world. A city of waltzes, art, royal tradition, and exquisite cuisine. Both imperial in spirit, but also smart and modern – Vienna is an experience that will definitely leave you wanting more.


Vienna is called The City of Music, as more famous composers have lived and worked here than anywhere else in the world, including 4 of the top 10 classical composers in history. The fascinating world of Viennese music is at every corner of the city, but for an immersive experience visit the Vienna State Opera and the House of Music.


The Gothic and Baroque buildings such as St Stephen’s Cathedral, the historic stairways of Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Schönbrunn Palace courtyards, will charm you with elegance. However, classic blends perfectly with modern Vienna – innovative, green, smart and diverse.

Art & Culture

The Museum Quarter Wien has about 70 cultural facilities, making it the largest art & culture complex in Europe. Whether you prefer contemporary art, the classic imperial collection at the Art History Museum, natural history at the Natural History Museum, or literature, in Vienna there is something for everybody.

Symbols of the City

Wiener Riesenrad is the oldest, still operating, Ferris wheel in the world. Located in the Prater amusement park, it’s one of Vienna’s best tourist attractions and even considered a symbol of the city! Another symbolic building is undoubtedly the Danube Tower. Its observational tower reveals a 360° spectacular view and the restaurant at the top rotates around its axis, allowing you to enjoy the panoramic scenery.

Taste of Vienna

Vienna’s exquisite cuisine is known for culinary staples such as the Viennese schnitzel, the strudel, and, yes, the croissant! The city is also called the Wine Capital of the World, being home to over 1,700 vineyards. And Vienna’s trademark cake, Sacher, served with a cup of warm coffee, perfectly describes the Viennese spirit—always combining love, tradition, and culture.

You can taste Vienna everywhere – in the coffee shops and restaurants, at the local hot dog stands or over a glass of wine in a Heuriger (wine tavern). Dig in and enjoy!

Getting Around Vienna

The City of Music is voted one of Europe’s top pedestrian-friendly cities. With its vast pedestrian zones and promenades along the Danube Canal, there is no better way to explore the Austrian capital than by foot.

The city is bicycle-friendly too, so consider renting two wheels for your stay if you’ve got the legs for it! 

And, if you decide to use public transportation, Vienna can offer you a big network of buses, trams, trains, and metro (U-Bann Subway), to get you around the city easily and comfortably.
