Discover Vienna – cultural centre in the heart of Europe

Wien von oben Stephansdom

The Austrian capital has so much more to offer than magnificent palaces, famous cafés and Wiener Schnitzel. Vienna is an exciting, busy and modern cultural metropolis in the heart of Europe! And it is now home to almost 1.8 million people.



There are many other highlights apart from the famous landmarks such as the "Prater" amusement park, St. Stephen's Cathedral and Schönbrunn Palace. The Museum Quarter, for example, has been offering art, architecture, design, dance, theatre and fashion on an area spanning 60,000 square metres since 2001 making it one of the ten largest cultural areas in the world. Another tourist highlight is represented by the Hofburg with its impressive backdrop. Today, it is home to numerous museums, including the Sisi Museum and the Austrian National Library. The renowned Burgtheater is also in the immediate vicinity.

Culinary delights

Viennese cuisine is famous all over the world. One culinary highlight is certainly the Naschmarkt on the outskirts of the Old Quarter offering international products such as fish, fruit, vegetables and the finest spices. It goes without saying that Austrian specialities are also offered. Vienna is famous and treasured for its café culture – which is still particularly distinctive in the Old Quarter with Cafe Central representing a veritable institution.


Strandbar Herrmann

In the evenings, many Viennese natives meet at the Danube Canal which features numerous beach bars and cafés. Bars and clubs can be found in the alternative 7th district. Also worthwhile is a visit to Vienna's vineyards to sample the "Heuriger", a young local wine.

Getting there

Vienna-Schwechat Airport is 18 kilometres south-east of the city centre with very good motorway and train links.


As of 29 October, easyJet will depart from Berlin Schönefeld for the Austrian capital four times a week. Flights will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
