Vienna, the world's most liveable city in 2018

Vienna has crowned as the most liveable city 2018 on Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2018 ranking of the world’s most liveable cities.

Vienna, ‘City of Music’ is Austria’s capital and by far its biggest city. Today, Vienna is host to many major international organisations including the United Nations and OPEC, and is a key destination for businesses, as well as expat diplomatic communities.

Not only is it an inspiring place to do business and a sumptuous city in which to live; families of all ages love to live here. With plenty of activities for kids, whether you take them to the tropical Butterfly House, inside one of the world’s most magnificent "Jugendstil" (Art Deco) greenhouses, or for a day of thrills at the Wiener Prater fairground, you’ll never be at a loss for things to do.

Vienna has much to offer, providing extraordinary live music experiences. But also offers marvellous cuisine experiences.
