Why Vienna?

Vienna is, not just geographically, but culturally, the beating heart of Europe. For hundreds of years this former seat of the Habsburg empire has attracted the continent’s brightest writers, artists, and musicians. With more than 100 museums crammed into a city you can walk across, you would expect down time be out of the question, but Vienna’s large open spaces, numerous cosy cafés, and easy rail access to gorgeous Austrian countryside means that life goes at your speed. From awe-inspiring architecture to techno street parties, great shopping and dining offerings to wild river swimming… Vienna has it all!


"The dialect in Vienna can be tricky, but most of the people I came across also spoke Hochdeutsch (standardised German), so it was never really a problem. It was always fun to discuss the dialect in conversations."
