Dream on. When you realize Vienna waits for you?
Imperial palaces and baroque streetscapes set the stage for Vienna’s artistic and musical masterpieces alongside its coffee-house culture and design scenes.
It is the capital and largest city of Austria and its cultural, economic and political center. It is the 7th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union.
In 2001, the city center was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site. In July 2017 it was moved to the list of World Heritage in Danger. Apart from being regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy, Vienna is also said to be “The City of Dreams” because it was home to the world’s first psycho-analyst – Sigmund Freud.
It is well known for having played an essential role as a leading European music center, from the great age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century.
The historic center of Vienna is rich in architectural ensembles, including Baroque castles and gardens and the late-19th-century Ringstraße lined with grand buildings, monuments, and parks. It attracts over 6.8 million tourists a year.
