Inhabited by just under 2 million people, Austria's Capital is, due to its history, one of the most frequented destinations in the world.
Many celebrated public characters and buildings can be found in Vienna: Sisi, Johann Strauß, Schloss and Tierpark Schönbrunn, Stephansdom, Staatsoper, Burgtheater, Schloss Belvedere, Hofburg, Hudertwasserhaus and the Prater with its observation wheel. This is only a small selection of reasons to visit Vienna.
Vienna is not just about its golden past, but offers a special experience of a modern metropolis. Enjoy the flair of an environmental friendly city. Stroll through the “Bermuda- Dreieck” (Bermuda Triangle) or amuse yourself in one of the numerous “Beisl”. Major events like the Vienna Marathon, the Lifeball or the New Year`s Eve trail have excellent international reputation. Since many large organisations have settled in Vienna, it is still a place where important decisions are made.
In order to enjoy your stay to the full, you better allow for enough time on your stay. We recommend staying for at least three days to discover Vienna's best known sights.
