About Vienna

Cozy coffee houses where delicious cakes are served, “Beisln” (bistro pubs) and “Heuriger” (wine pubs) who provide their beloved guests with wines, beer and traditional food; where talented chefs are taking the capital in new culinary directions; and where an efficient transport system will ferry you across town from a restaurant to a post-dinner drink in no time at all, that is Vienna.

The last Mercer Study has chosen Vienna as the world’s number one most livable city for the tenth time in a row. More than half of the metropolitan area is made up of green spaces. 280 imperial parks and gardens enrich the cityscape. In spring, 400 species of rose bloom in the Volksgarten alone. The nearby recreation areas of Prater, Vienna Woods and Lobau invite visitors to go on walks, day trips, hikes and bicycle tours.


The average minimum temperature (usually the minimum temperature is noted during the night) in Vienna in August is 15.7°C (60.26°F). The average maximum daytime temperature lies around 26.0°C (78.8°F). If you enjoy looking at a blue sky and love the sun than this is a great time to go to Vienna.


There is much to see: From Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral to the Imperial Palace to Art Nouveau, from the baroque palace Schönbrunn to exciting museums to modern architecture.
