About Vienna

 

Vienna is the capital of Austria and it is known for its cultural and historical background.

Vienna is being regarded as the City of Music, because of its musical luminaries including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and many more. It played an essential role as a leading European Music Centre, from the great age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century.

The historic centre 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.

Some of the most famous sightseeing points in Vienna are:

  • Burgtheater, is considered one of the best theatres in the German-speaking world
  • Wiener Musikverein, home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, known across the world for the annual widely broadcast "New Year's Day Concert"
  • The imperial palaces of Hofburg and Schönbrunn
  • Rathaus (Town Hall)
  • Stephansdom and Stephansplatz (the city center)
  • The main building of the University of Vienna, which is one of the oldest universities in the German-speaking world. It is associated with 15 Nobel prize winners and has been the academic home of a large number of figures both of historical and academic importance.
