Vienna - the imposing imperial city on the banks of the Danube
The imperial city on the banks of the Danube is the pulsating heart of Austria. Vienna has always been a melting pot of cultures and the country's economic and political center. Today, around two million people - about a quarter of Austria's total population - live in the capital.
Vienna is divided into 23 districts, which are laid out in a spiral from the center of the inner city outward. In the inner districts, around the historical center of Vienna, you will find the typical city life of the former imperial city with its historical sights like St. Stephen's Cathedral.
Vienna is famous above all for its rich café culture, the imposing and impressive buildings from the imperial period, as well as for its multifaceted history (e.g. the city siege by the Turks or the first settlement by the Roman voyage and the Habsburg imperial period).
In the districts of the city, which are often characterized by magnificent buildings and houses in the style of Baroque and Classicism, you will find wonderful city hotels and charming accommodations in the heart of downtown Vienna.
