About Vienna

January 22, 2015 Attendance no comments

Vienna, a city with about two million inhabitants, is situated in the very heart of Europe. Due to its unique geographic and geopolitical location, Vienna has been the setting for many international events and has become a popular conference venue. Vienna hosts one of the United Nations headquarters and is home to a number of other international organisations.

Vienna’s ever-changing history has left an indelible mark on the city, a mark also manifest in a rich cultural heritage. The city’s ultimate fascination stems from merging imperial grandeur with a cosmopolitan spirit, a combination which emerged after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Viennese writers, musicians and artists as well as scientists have all influenced many aspects of our modern world. Vienna took part in all major political developments of the 20th century. Shaped over the centuries as the capital of a huge empire, Vienna will always arouse feelings of nostalgia.

Today, Vienna offers historical palaces alongside modern shopping centres, traditional hotels, Austrian food as well as haute cuisine, typical Viennese coffee houses and luxury restaurants, outstanding opera and theatre performances, classical concerts and open-air festivals, antique shops next to elegant boutiques – all joined together in incomparable Viennese harmony.
