Vienna – the best city in the world to live in
A cool look at contemporary Vienna, beyond the clichés. Ranked #1 worldwide by Mercer Consulting, Vienna is the fastest-growing city in the German-speaking world. Come and explore this creative, dynamic city on a colourful, hip tour of new Vienna architecture, design and fashionable districts. We’ll discuss the concept of a ‘Smart City’, and attractive local features like Danube-swimming, cheap tasty eats and new green politics. The Austrian capital has retained its cosiness, and now specialises in finding innovative new uses for beautiful old buildings.
