Vienna scores like no other city with its exceptional music and cultural programme in concert halls, museums and on stages from the Golden Hall in the Musikverein to the renowned Kunsthistorische Museum (Museum of Art History) right up to the Vienna State Opera. Vienna is also synonymous with a tradition of refined tasteful enjoyment which has established itself over centuries in the coffee houses and wine taverns.
And last but not least, over half of Vienna's urban area is made up of relaxing green spaces, parks and gardens, the Vienna Woods and the Danube Floodplains.
A walk through Vienna is like going on a journey through time to the imperial past. No wonder the historical city centre was named a world heritage site by UNESCO. Vienna boasts more than 27 castles and 163 palaces. On every corner you can discover valuable cultural artefacts or dream of the good old imperial period in a coffeehouse.
