A warm „Grüß Gott!” and nice to have you in beautiful Vienna, the capital of Austria. Austria is a wonderfully uncomplicated place to visit. Situated in the heart of Europe, most people speak English, and there is a spectacular combination of cultural and natural attractions.
Vienna is the federal capital, and the smallest of Austria’s nine provinces. It is located in the heart of Europe, stretching from the banks of the Danube to the north-easternmost foothills of the Pre-Alps.
But it has so much more to offer. In Vienna every visitor gets his money’s worth. Whether you are interested in art or music, or love architecture or you are online looking for variety in one of the beautiful parks. Vienna offers everything and you never get bored in your own city.

Our Currency: The Euro
As a member of the European Union, Austria is also part of the Economic and Monetary Union – which introduced the EURO as the common currency.
ATM's are widely used in Austria and are called "Bankomat". You will find outdoor venues at most branches of Austrian banks.
Credit cards, although accepted in hotels, major restaurants and stores, are less used for purchases in small shops, cafes, or grocery stores. We recommend to check with the venue before.
