Vienna, Austria

General Information

Arts / Theater

Vienna is the world's musical capital, given its glorious past in the field. There are many ways of crowning a day in Vienna with an uplifting cultural experience: the Vienna Boy's Choir, a performance of opera, operetta or musical, good jazz and modern pop. Theater covers the entire creative spectrum from the Burgtheater (the oldest and largest dramatic theater in German‑speaking Europe), to avant‑garde experimental theater in all major languages.

Sport / Leisure

Vienna is an extremely green city offering many sporting opportunities. For instance, bikes can be rented for sightseeing along marked cycle‑paths on the famous Ring Boulevard. You can also go rowing along the "new Danube", rollerblading on the Danube Island or just strolling along the many hiking‑paths in the Vienna Woods.

Museums

MuseumsQuartier Wien is one of the ten largest cultural districts in the world, and features several eminent and important cultural centers, including the Museum of Fine Arts which is one of the most eminent museums with the largest Bruegel collections in the world. Albertina is a famous graphic collection including DŁrerís The Field Hare and Klimtís studies of women. MAK, the Museum for Applied / Contemporary Art shows furniture, glass, china, silver, and textiles from the Middle Ages to the present day. Liechtenstein Museum has one of the most extensive collections of Rubens. Belvedere shows major works by Schiele and Kokoschka as well as Gustav Klimt's legendary painting The Kiss.

Shopping

The shopping opportunities will fit every purse, from the exquisite pedestrian zone in the inner city offering stylish boutiques and some glamor, to the less expensive shopping area of the Mariahilfer Strasse with lots of choice, to the vibrancy and variety of the flea‑market each Saturday at the end of the Naschmarkt.

Wining & Dining

Many different parts of Europe have influenced Viennese cuisine over the course of the centuries. Viennese cooking is traditional, popular and well known, but at the same time young chefs love to reinterpret it. There are many first‑rate restaurants, from simple bistro to luxury gourmet that will be happy to pamper you and your guests. An evening at a Heuriger, the guarantee of a relaxing, typically Viennese evening with wine, music and traditional winery cuisine, not to be missed!
