Austria’s capital Vienna offers a blend of imperial traditions, music, and endearing charm. With around 2 million inhabitants in the city and almost 3 million within the metropolitan area, Vienna is the cultural, economic and political center of Austria. Furthermore, it is the largest of cities located on the river Danube.
Art and culture had a long tradition in Vienna, including theater, opera, classical music and fine arts. Additionally, Vienna is known as the “City of Music”, due to its musical legacy, as many famous classical musicians such as Beethoven and Mozart called Vienna home. Vienna is also home to the world’s first psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud.
Besides its classical character, Vienna has now also become a vibrant metropolis and a vibrant student city. For those who have the opportunity to stay for the weekend after the colloquium to explore the city further, we can definitely recommend it.
