Welcome to the world capital of music! More famous composers have lived here than in any other city, and music is literally in the air in Vienna: waltz and operetta are at home here, and musicals “made in Vienna” have conquered international audiences.
Vienna is the capital and the cultural, economic and political center of Austria with around 1.9 million inhabitants.
Vienna is old, but Vienna is also new – and diverse: from the magnificent buildings of the baroque to the “golden” Art Nouveau to contemporary architecture. And more than 100 museums attract millions of visitors to the city each year.
Take your time and walk in the footsteps of the Habsburg monarchy of yesteryear, visit the magnificent baroque palaces of Schönbrunn and Belvedere, visit the Hofburg Palace or stroll along the magnificent Ringstrasse.
