“The Hall of the Sciences”
Congress Location: Aula der Wissenschaften
Wollzeile 27a, 1010 Vienna, Austria
The Aula der Wissenschaften is in the center of Vienna, only a few minutes’ walk away from St. Stephen’s Cathedral. It is close to a great variety of hotels, restaurants, bars, underground carparks, cultural institutions and shopping areas. In addition, the “Stadtpark”invites visitors to spend some time just relaxing outdoors.
The Aula der Wissenschaften is centrally located and easy to reach for guests to Vienna who are arriving by train, car or plane. Several underground (U1, U3, U4), bus (1A, 74A) and tram (line number 2) lines converge nearby.
Vienna – Tradition meets lifestyle
With its successful blend of imperial tradition and contemporary creativity, the Austrian capital has established itself as one of the most interesting cities in Europe.
Vienna is not only the capital of Austria, but also one of its nine federal states. The city covers 415 square kilometers, with woods, grassland, parks and gardens accounting for approximately half of its total area. Vienna is the city in Europe with the highest ratio of green space. “Urban green” such as the Stadtpark (with the most frequently photographed motif in the city, the golden Johann Strauss monument) is joined by the woods and grassland of the Prater, Vienna’s own amusement park. The extensive Schönbrunn Palace Gardens, the Vienna Woods, numerous vineyards and farmland along with the wetlands of the legendary Danube River provide visitors with many ‘green’ activities close to the center. During the summer, temperatures rarely rise above 30º C and during the winter hardly ever fall below – 5º C.
Imperial Romance and Architecture
Vienna owes its universal appeal to the exciting combination of imperial nostalgia with a highly creative cultural scene. This energy has created a precious heritage of charming traditions while at the same time, adopting the most modern trends. Architecture dating to imperial times has left an indelible mark on the city. Magnificent edifices, predominantly in baroque, historicism (“Ringstrasse”) and art nouveau styles, and the city’s grand scale cause you to forget that this is the capital of the small Republic of Austria. In Vienna, you will re-live the romance of a long-lost empire.
Museums of your Choice
It is not only the city’s imperial architecture that renders it a city of beauty. Vienna also boasts world- renowned museums, art collections and the finest works of art. The Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Art) houses the world’s largest collection of paintings by Bruegel, while numerous works by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele are exhibited at the Belvedere and the Leopold Museum in the Museums Quartier.
The City of Music – Traditional & Modern
Vienna has traditionally accorded the arts great respect, and over the centuries has never ceased to foster creative people from all over the world. Vienna boasts 50 theaters, including four opera houses, several stage musical theaters, 150 museums, numerous galleries, and many renowned drama, music and dance festivals. All this ensures an extraordinarily rich cultural program throughout the year, making the city one of Europe’s leading cultural centers.
Something for everyone
The juxtaposition of what is traditional – coffeehouses and wine taverns with typical Viennese congeniality –and what is modern – events such as the Life Ball and the Festival of Electronic Music – conveys a lifestyle that appeals to the modern tourist. A choice between relaxation and serenity, or action and stimulation, can be made depending on your mood.
In many ways, Vienna is a welcoming city offering a great variety of cultural and lifestyle opportunities.
