Overview

Vienna, the capital of Austria

Vienna is the capital city of Austria and home to approximately 1,6 million inhabitants. Vienna is the seat of many multinationals and is becoming more and more important as a centre for trade between Western and Eastern Europe.

About Austria


There are numerous things to be done and to visit once in Vienna. Don’t miss the following landmarks: Saint Stephan’s cathedral, Austria’s most important building in Gothic Style; Burgtheater, the flagship of the 50 Viennese theatres and the oldest and one of the most influential theatres in the dramatic arts of the German speaking countries; the City Hall, the most important building in neo-Gothic style in the city; and the Imperial Palace, residence of the Habsburg emperors until 1918 and today its chapel is where the Vienna Boys’ Choir sings mass on Sundays and religious holidays.

When in Vienna it is a must to visit a typical Viennese coffeehouse. Relax and try a Melange (coffee with frothy milk) with a sweet flaky pastry with apples.

Some of the most popular streets for shopping are: Kärntner Straße, the most famous shopping street in Vienna. This street has the most expensive and exclusive shops in Vienna; Mariahilfer Straße, the longest shopping street in Vienna with small boutiques and big department stores, many snack-bars, cafés, old Viennese coffeehouses and restaurants.
