venerable old & exciting young
With a mixture of imperial tradition and modern lifestyle, Vienna successfully positions itself on the world tourist market. More than half of the city is made up of grassland, making Vienna the greenest city in Europe. It is not only the many buildings from imperial times that make Vienna a city full of beauty and art: museums, collections and world-class works of art can be seen here. For example, the Kunsthistorisches Museum with the largest collection of Bruegel paintings or the works of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele in the Belvedere and the Leopold Museum in the Museum Quarter. The Albertina is the largest graphic collection in the world with 60,000 drawings and one million prints. Vienna enjoys a special reputation as a city of music. There is no other place where so many world-class composers have lived: from Schubert, Strauss, Schönberg or Berg to those whose home was Vienna, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms or Mahler. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the world’s best, the Vienna Boys’ Choir inspires music lovers around the globe and the Vienna State Opera House is one of the world’s leading opera houses. Vienna has 50 theatres, four opera houses and several musical stages, over 150 museums, numerous galleries as well as renowned theatre, music and dance festivals to offer. A diverse gastronomic scene has also developed around the Naschmarkt. Mariahilfer Straße has become the city’s largest shopping mile. In the direction of Prater (giant wheel) and Copa Cagrana, the biggest free open-air party in Europe takes place on the Danube island in summer. There is a beach feeling at the numerous summer beaches on the Danube canal, where you can enjoy the warm season. And since time immemorial, the wine taverns on the slopes of the Vienna Woods have attracted people to “study” the theme of Vienna and wine.
