Tourist Information

Vienna

Known as the City of Music, Austria’s capital Vienna is located on the banks of the Danube river in the heart of Europe. Beyond its dazzling imperial palaces, musical legacy and masterpiece-filled museums, Vienna is also famous for its coffee-house “living rooms” serving spectacular cakes, and vineyards at the city borders, hosting rustic vine-draped Heurigen (wine taverns).

Marked by its past as the center of the Habsburg Empire, and as one of the wealthiest regions in the European Union, Vienna is a vibrant city and a cultural, economic and political center of the region. In 2018 Vienna was for the ninth consecutive year named the city with highest quality of life in the world.

Stephansdom
The most important religious building in Vienna, St. Stephen’s Cathedral has borne witness to many important events in Habsburg and Austrian history and has, with its multi-coloured tile roof, become one of the city’s most recognizable symbols.

Schönbrunn Palace

Schönbrunn Palace is one of Austria’s most important cultural assets, and since the 1960s has been one of Vienna’s major tourist attractions, drawing millions of visitors each year. At the 20th session of the World Heritage Committee held in December 1996, Schönbrunn Palace was put on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites.

At the end of the 17th century Emperor Leopold I commissioned the Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, design an imperial hunting lodge for his son, Crown Prince Joseph, later to become Emperor Joseph I. It grew into a palatial imperial residence over the course of the eighteenth century.
