Vienna, bursting with art and history
Austria's capital city and hub of culture is Vienna, the home of the United Nations. Flights to Vienna come into the city's International Airport, also the largest in the country. Vienna is repeatedly named as one of the most livable cities, and the quality of life here is easy to see. It's filled with traditional coffee shops and ice cream parlours, and the city's coffee house history is on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
Music and the arts
It's said that Vienna is one of the world's most musical cities. Many famous composers were either born or lived here: Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Salieri and more. Visit the city's Haus der Musik museum to see interactive musical exhibits in either English or German. You can also find out more about the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
The main art gallery in Vienna is the Kunsthistoriches Museum. Most of the exhibitions belong to the Habsburg family, who own one of the largest collections of paintings in the world. Vienna also has a MuseumsQuartier, where you'll find the Leopold Museum.
Food and drink
Viennese cuisine relies heavily on meat as a main ingredient. Wiener schnitzel is Austria's national dish, made from breaded veal. Vienna is also the birthplace of the strudel, most commonly made with apple or milk and cream fillings.
Something you might not know about Vienna is that it produces a surprisingly high amount of wine. Take a vineyard or wine cellar tour during your trip. The city boasts over 700 hectares of vineyards, with Gemischter Satz the area's speciality wine. It's made using up to 20 different grapes at once, giving it a unique and rich taste.
The city has a grand atmosphere, and the architecture is likewise detailed and refined. The State Opera House is one of the finest examples, dating back to the 19th century and built in the Neorenaissance style. Art Deco has been another defining movement in terms of the city's looks, led by famous Austrian artist Otto Wagner. You can see the style in several stations on Vienna's underground network.
There are several pedestrian-only zones in the centre of Vienna, lined with shops and cafés. You can pick up luxury goods and jewellery at very reasonable prices. The Golden Quarter, part of the Old City district, is home to high fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada and Armani.
