Why Vienna is the best city in the world | City Walk


Ranked as the most liveable city in the world almost every year since 2010, Vienna is the fastest-growing capital city in the EU. How has the administration managed to reconcile these aspects, and how is the city creatively responding to the challenges of modern life?

Explore the concept of smart city, and discover beloved local features, such as free swimming in the Danube, 1 euro public transport, and social housing. A deep dive into all the things that make Vienna truly special.

This walk's route will kick off in the city centre and hit attractions such as the Secession building, Libelle in the Museum Square, and the Haus des Meeres, among others.

Meeting point
: The ViennaUP Homebase at Karlsplatz.
Please strive to arrive 15 minutes before the walk starts in order to make sure the group is ready to go by 10:00.

No-one to walk with and worried about it? Fear not, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to join, especially if you find yourself alone, with two hours to spare. The tour is set up to be lively and interactive, and participants usually end up engaging - with each other, and with friendly Viennese strangers.
