A lot has been said and written about the unique charm of Vienna because this city inspires people all over the world as a historically evolved bridge between West and East - and rightly so. Although it is now a modern, vibrant and multi-cultural metropolis, it has retained the magical flair of its eventful past. In addition, safety and a high standard of living bring a tremendous quality of life, and the cultural diversity is incomparable. Just think of the world-famous New Year's Concert, the Life Ball or the Danube Island Festival.
Vienna's nightlife, leisure activities and shopping malls easily compare with international standards and make city life colourful and varied.
