Our fact sheet provides detailed information on the objectives and work of the Vienna Tourist Board.

The Vienna Tourist Board has existed since 1955 under public law as directed by the Vienna Tourist Support Law. Its internal structure is run flexibly, like a private enterprise with flat hierarchies (for organizational chart and work report please see tourism review).

Peter Hanke, member of the Viennese Government, Executive City Councilor of Finance, Business, Digital Innovation and International Affairs, has been President of the Vienna Tourist Board since June 19, 2018. The position of Director of Tourism is filled by Norbert Kettner since September 1, 2007. The Board of Directors (officially: The Tourism Commission) consists of the president, two vice presidents and 15 additional members, the latter mostly assigned by the City of Vienna.

The Vienna Tourist Board is financed mainly from three sources: local taxes taken in by hotels in Vienna, the general city budget and its own revenues.
