Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and by far the largest city in Austria with its population of more than 1.7 million. As you'd expect it's Austria's cultural, economic, and political centre. As the former home of the Habsburg court and its various empires, the city still has the trappings of the imperial capital it once was.
Culture of Vienna
Traditional Vienna is but one of the many façades of this city; the historic centre, a UNESCO world heritage site, is sometimes begrudgingly compared to an open-air museum. But Vienna is also a dynamic young city, famous for its music scene.
Vienna International Airport is located just outside the city limits of Vienna, and a few miles southeast of the suburb of Schwechat. The airport is the home base of the flag-carrier Austrian Airlines, as well as budget airline Niki.
Most European airlines and a significant number of intercontinental airlines have direct connections to Vienna from their respective hubs.
Vienna International Airport (VIE) is located just outside the city limits of Vienna, and a few miles southeast of the suburb of Schwechat. The airport is the home base of the flag-carrier Austrian Airlines, as well as budget airline Niki.
Most European airlines and a significant number of intercontinental airlines have direct connections to Vienna from their respective hubs. However, only Austrian Airlines fly to the Americas (Chicago, New York, Toronto and Washington), and there is no service to Northern England and Africa (aside from Egypt, Libya and Tunisia) making a change necessary to reach Vienna.
Vienna has a good public transport system, which includes rail, commuter rail, underground, trams (trolleys), and buses. The underground is very efficient and will take you to within a few minutes walk of anywhere you are likely to want to visit. The subway alone has the second highest per-capita ridership in the world, and that is not accounting for the 27 tram lines, dozens of train lines or numerous buses.
What to see
Vienna has a rich history as the capital city of the monarchy and thus abundant historical buildings and museums. The most of these, including Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral) and the two most well-known museums, Kunsthistorisches Museum and Albertina, are located in the Innere Stadt.
The Ring Road is a circular road surrounding the Innere Stadt district of Vienna and is one of its main sights. Its architecture is typical of the eclectic, historicist style called Ringstraßenstil (Ring Road Style) of the 1860s to 1890s.
Built in the style of the Renaissance according to plans by Heinrich von Ferstel, the MAK- Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art is the first museum building on the Ringstraße. The Schloss Schönbrunn palace, a part of the UNESCO World heritage list, is located in the Outer West district.
Ball Season: One thing you should not miss when you visit Vienna during the carnival season is to attend one of the many glamourous balls in the city, some of them in wonderful elegant locations like the Vienna Hofburg or the City Hall (Rathaus). The most widely known and elegant balls are the Opera Ball in the State Opera or the ball of the Wiener Philharmoniker. Many professional guilds have their own ball like e.g. the Kaffeesiederball by the Vienna Coffee house owners. The ball calendar can be found on the pages of the Vienna City Council
There are also a lot of other open-air-film festivals in summer, e.g. at the Augarten, the Vienna Turf Krieau, the Prater, and Schloss Neugebäude.
In the summer, there is also the ImPulsTanz Festival for contemporary dance & performance. They are also good if you are interested in dance workshops.
Every other year, starting in 2015, the Vienna Biennale takes place. It is the first event of its kind to combine art, design, and architecture.
