City Information


Vienna, described by some as Europe's cultural capital, is a metropolis with unique charm, vibrancy and flair. The capital of Austria, which has nearly 2 million inhabitants, is situated on the banks of the Danube.

You will find numerous activities in the area - theatre, music, art exhibitions, public readings, museums and operas that cater to all tastes. More than half of the metropolitan area is made up of green spaces. If you are looking for a place to take a break in the center of Vienna, you can visit one of the beautiful inner-city parks. Vienna is a compact city which can be explored on foot or via the excellent public transportation network of underground trains, trams and buses.

Vienna is famous for it's breaded pork or (more authentically) veal Schnitzel and a traditional chocolate cake called Sacher-Torte, which was created by Franz Sacher in 1832. You will find the best Sacher Torte, a must for the sweet-toothed, in one of the traditional "Altwiener Kaffeehäuser" in the city centre.

The "Kärntner Straße" connects the famous St. Stephen's cathedral and the Opera house, and is one of the most famous shopping areas in Vienna, where you will find designer stores, boutiques and trendy pubs, restaurants and cafés next door to traditional shops.

A trip to Vienna isn't complete without a trip to the Schönbrunn Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors embark on an unforgettable journey through time into the world of the imperial Habsburg dynasty.

The ESMRMB 2016 will take place in the centrally located Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center.
