Vienna is the federal capital of Austria and at the same time one of Austria’s nine federal states. With a population of over 1.8 million, Vienna is Austria’s most populous city. In terms of surface area, it is the biggest city and second biggest municipality in Austria.
Vienna is an international convention and meeting location, with the headquarters of over 30 international organisations such as the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
Vienna is just the best! In the international Mercer Study 2018, which compares quality of life using 39 criteria such as political, economic, social and environmental factors in 230 cities worldwide, Vienna took first position for the ninth time in a row. News magazine The Economist has also come to the conclusion that Vienna is the world’s most liveable city, placing the Austrian capital at the top of its own ranking. The low risk of terror attacks and the fallen crime rate were decisive reasons for a score of 99.1 out of 100 possible points. For the ranking, the Economist Intelligence Unit assessed and compared factors such as infrastructure, education, healthcare, social security, stability and culture. Vienna’s assets include baroque palaces such as 17th century Schönbrunn Palace or the modern Museumsquartier. These cultural treasures are located not far from ARCOTEL Wimberger and are a must during a stay in Vienna.
