Historically, Vienna is known as a melting pot of cultures due to its location at the intersection of western Europe and the Balkans. The rich coffee house tradition and cultural offerings of the Austrian capital are a powerful reminder of its colourful past. At the same time, the city of 1.87 million has its eyes firmly set on the future. The city on the Danube is home to many international corporations and a platform for trade and commerce.

And what about the quality of life? It's just as good as the coffee. A Mercer study of 221 world cities conducted in 2010 ranked Vienna in first place for quality of life for the second time running, thanks to its modern infrastructure, clean air and extensive public transportation system. The surrounding countryside is considered some of the most scenic in Austria. For proof, take a trip through the Burgenland region with its lush hills, historic castles and award-winning vineyards. For all outdoor activities – be it hiking, cycling or skiing – resorts are just around the corner.
