About Vienna

There are many reasons to visit Vienna - the city is world famous for its imperial heritage, Schönbrunn Palace, the Belvedere, and the Hofburg. The Austrian capital scores highly thanks to the first-rate musical and cultural attractions at its concert halls, museums and theaters - from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein to the acclaimed Museum of Fine Arts and the State Opera House.

Vienna is also a byword for epicurean enjoyment, with centuries of traditions shaping its coffee houses and Heuriger wine taverns. Over half of the city is accounted for by green spaces including parks and gardens, the Vienna Woods and the wetlands of the Donau Auen National Park.

In a poll from tripadvisor.com, Vienna always ranked among top spots for ‘getting around in the city’, ‘local transport’, ‘cultural offering’, ‘safety for travelers’, ‘family friendliness’, and ‘cleanliness’.
