Celebrate Vienna, in all its rich variety.
Celebrate the Arts
Discover the buzzing heart of Vienna, a hive of art and culture, an intoxicating mix of the ancient and the very new. With a diverse and open populace representing over 170 nationalities, Vienna is full of variety, different neighbourhoods, world-beating cuisine, and an extraordinary rich artistic heritage. Close to 30 museums, representing art from the age of antiquity to the present day, are packed into the city centre and three quarters of its visitors come because of its world-beating cultural life. Together with you we want to celebrate the many faces of Vienna.
Celebrate the City
Vienna is built on variety: here, imperial landmarks rub shoulders with prime examples of contemporary architecture. In the historic city center it’s easy to get from A to B on foot. The days of public squares being used as car parks are ancient history – today they provide havens of relaxation where pedestrians can watch the world go by. Almost half the city is accounted for by green spaces and waterways, with just under 1,000 parks and gardens defining its look and feel. Vienna offers the experiences of a safe world capital, without the associated stress factors. Become Viennese and experience Vienna like a local: https://www.wien.info/en/lifestyle-scene/sports
Celebrate the Extraordinary
It’s not just down to fantastic food and excellent wine: no other European capital has a city with its own cuisine named after it (Viennese Cuisine), a winegrowing industry that comes anywhere close – or can serve up anything like Vienna’s inimitable coffeehouse culture. Thanks to the city’s unrivalled reputation for cakes and pastries, all of its cafés offer up a rich slice of Viennese indulgence – with a sugar rush thrown in for good measure. What might come as something of a surprise: lots of the ingredients that go into the dishes served at the city’s restaurants are actually grown right here. Using cutting-edge methods, without any of the long transport chains. It doesn’t get much more sustainable than that.
