Life is good in Vienna. What the Viennese have always known is now official – Vienna was voted to be the world’s most liveable city for the fifth year in a row. Why? The city has more green space than virtually any other. It is a place where you can relax. The Austrian capital also has excellent infrastructure and is one of the safest major cities on earth.

A stroll around Vienna can be like a journey back in time to the days of the empire — it comes as no surprise that the historic city center is a UNESCO world cultural heritage site. Vienna boasts 27 palaces and more than 150 other residences - examples of the city’s illustrious history await on virtually every street corner and the capital’s coffee houses are the perfect places to dream of imperial days of yore. And if you are interested in shopping you can visit one of the former purveyors to the imperial court.
