Living and working in Vienna

Vienna, the capital and the political heart of Austria has already been named the city with the highest quality of life in the world for the ninth consecutive time. The mixture of low living expenses, beautiful places around the Danube and a wide range of cultural activities make Vienna a city where people enjoy living and working.


The city has various universities, an airport in the vicinity and a highly developed public transport network. Many Viennese also appreciate the fact that their city is very clean and safe.

A colourful mixture of tradition and modernity is reflected not only in architecture and culture, but also in the way of life of the Viennese. The city has many places of interest to visit and discover.

Especially worth seeing is Schönbrunn Palace with its palace park, which is one of the most important and most visited cultural assets of Austria and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From art to fashion and new media, the Museumsquartier offers a wide range of different themes, offering something for every taste.
