Vienna, Conference and Workshop Locations with Maps
Vienna, the Austrian capital with about 1.6 million inhabitants is situated in the heart of Europe. It is a city on which its ever-changing history has left an indelible mark, manifested also in the rich cultural heritage. The city's ultimate fascination stems from combining imperial grandeur with the explosive modernity that emerged from the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Viennese writers, musicians, artists and scientists forged a new direction for the modern world in every field. Shaped by its hundreds of years as capital of an empire, Vienna will always arouse a dreamy nostalgia for times past, but that nostalgia is spiked by constant reminders of the turning-point where imperial dreams faded and the modern world began.
Vienna is famous for its architecture such as St. Stephen's Cathedral, Imperial Palace, the City Hall, the National Library, Schönbrunn Palace, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Austrian Gallery at the Upper Belvedere, the Secession, and the Giant Ferris Wheel; it is of course also famous for its cultural events (Operas (Staatsoper, Volksoper), Theatres (Burgtheater, Volkstheater, ...), Musicals, Museums) and its musical tradition.
