Vienna

Vienna German: Wien is the capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.8 million[1] (2.6 million within the metropolitan area,[4] nearly one third of Austria's population), and its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the largest German-speaking city in the world, and before the splitting of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in World War I the city had 2 million inhabitants.[7] Today it has the second most number of German speakers after Berlin.[8][9] Vienna is host to many major international organizations, including the United Nations and OPEC. The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in a European Centrope border region. Along with nearby Bratislava, Vienna forms a metropolitan region with 3 million inhabitants. In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[10]

€18,- to €55,- per night and bed.

Hotelprices

€45,- to €99,- single room

€55,- to €145,- double room

Tourist Attractions

Social Event

We suggest to have the social event at a Heuriger wine tavern. It is typical for Vienna and most of the conferences that are held in Vienna have at least one social event at one of these locations. The event would include traditional food & music.

Note.png
Heuriger is the name given to Eastern Austrian wine taverns in which specially licensed local winemakers serve their most recent year's wines for short periods following the growing season. They are renowned for their atmosphere of Gemütlichkeit shared among a throng enjoying young wine, simple food, and traditional music.
