A visit to Austria's capital is a special experience simply because of its impressive buildings from the Baroque, Wilhelminian and Art Nouveau eras. Traditionally, there is a great art scene in the Danube metropolis, an extensive cultural offering and numerous leisure opportunities, including in the countryside. The city is considered a place to live with a very high quality of life. Since the Congress of Vienna, the city has also been known for international meetings and diplomacy. There is a high supply of meeting and congress locations which are easy to reach thanks to the well-developed public transport network.
