exciting exhibitions that's currently on in town Van Gogh
at the Albertina, film art at the Kunsthalle or a miniature
gallery at the MuseumsQuartier, anyone?

History
Starting off as a tiny village along the Wien river, Vienna
is now the 10th largest city in the EU and home to many
major international organizations such as the United
Nations and OPEC.

ANTIQUITY
Founded around 500 BC, Vienna was originally a Celtic
settlement. By 15 BCE, the town had developed into a
Roman frontier city called Vindobona, protecting the
Roman Empire from Germanic tribes.

HABSBURGS
AND OTTOMANS
During the Middle Ages, Vienna became the residence
of the Habsburg dynasty in 1440 and eventually grew to
become the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. On their
march towards western Europe, the Ottoman armies
were twice stopped at Vienna in the 16th and 17th
centuries. During the 1529 Siege of Vienna, the city was
lucky to escape defeat and was saved by an early winter
and epidemics. A century later, the citys fortifications
had been greatly expanded and proved their worth
during the 1683 Battle of Vienna, when they helped
the city survive for two months, allowing the army led
by Polish King Jan Sobieski to assemble and defeat the
Ottomans for good.

18TH CENTURY
Baroque was the style of the century, and local nobility
started constructing palaces in the countryside immediately
outside the city, resulting in several magnificent summer
palaces.

19

TH

CENTURY

Vienna became the capital of the huge Austrian


Empire in 1804, and later of the Austro-Hungarian
Empire, playing an important role in European and
world politics. The arts blossomed, and classical music
witnessed golden years. The rule of Emperor Franz
Joseph I transformed the city; the city walls were
demolished to make way for the Ringstrae boulevard
lined lined with impressive buildings, the city expanded
to include, and the Danube river which caused serious
floods was canalised and tamed.

20TH CENTURY
Industrialisation of and immigration to Vienna lead to a
period of expansion. By 1910, Vienna was the sixth largest
city in the world, with large numbers of Czech and Jewish
residents. The city was a centre of the new Jugendstil style
from 1900. The Austro-Hungarian Empire fell apart at the
end of the First World War and in 1918 the Republic of
Deutsch-sterreich was created. Socialism quickly became
popular and Red Vienna saw many residential estates

FROM THE MAYOR


Vienna is a city of dreams.
A city full of life, economic vitality, efficient transportation,
numerous modern buildings
and architectural gems. A city
that offers people work and the
youth a wide range of opportunities. Vienna is also the city
of green parks, calm, dreamy
alleys, art and music. This city Stadt Wien/PID,
attracts people. Vienna is grow- Photo: Hubert Dimko
ing; life can be felt on every corner and in every street.
Vienna is rightly deemed a city worth living in, a model
of providing medical and social benefits.
As the headquarters of international agencies such
as OPEC, the UN and the International Atomic Energy
Agency, Vienna is also a cosmopolitan city of culture
and gastronomy. The rich spectrum of cultural offerings
makes Vienna a leading cultural metropolis; one often
hears the term international capital of music connected with it. The Viennese music institutions with their
grand tradition constantly keep this reputation fresh
and carry it forth into the world.
In the best tradition of the many Viennese markets,
I can only say: have a look around! Welcome to Vienna!

built, but also shelling of locals supporting the socialist
militia by the Austrian Army during the 1934 civil war.
Adolf Hitler himself an Austrian triumphantly
marched into town and spoke from the Hofburg balcony
during the Anschluss (joining) of Austria in 1938.
Viennas thousands of Jews suffered badly, harassed by
both the state and anti-Semitic citizens, and decimated
by the Holocaust.
Vienna was badly damaged in 1944 and 1945 during
the Soviet advance, but largely reconstructed in the
1950s-60s, with the city centre proclaimed a UNESCO
World Heritage Site in 2001. Post-war Vienna was divided
into sectors ruled by The USA, UK, France and the Soviet
Union just like Berlin. The occupation lasted 10 years, in
which time spies from east and west played their Cold
War games.
Austria regained full independence in 1955, and
from the 1970s Vienna became the host city of many
important international organisations, including various
UN agencies, OPEC, the International Atomic Energy
Agency and OSCE. The crumbling of the Iron Curtain in
1989 profoundly changed the citys outlook, and theres
good cooperation with nearby Bratislava in Slovakia
now.

DRIVING & PARKING


Parking in central Vienna is expensive; the 20 public
garages in the centre charge up to 5 per hour. Street
parking tickets (1 per 30 minutes) can be purchased from
news agents (Trafiken), the offices of Wiener Linien, many
petrol stations, major train stations and by SMS on the A1
mobile network. Day visitors to Vienna are better off using a
Park & Ride facility in the outskirts (3 per day) and taking
the tram or U-Bahn to the city centre.

youll need a vignette sticker on your windscreen costing
7.90 for 10 days, which can be purchased at petrol
stations.

LONG-DISTANCE BUSES

and most visitors wont need them though the handy
night buses replace the U-Bahn from 00:45 to 05:00 on
weekdays.
Tickets cost 2,20 for a single ride, though its well
worth getting a day ticket if youre planning on using
public transport more than a few times. A 24-hour
ticket costs 7,60, a 48-hour ticket 13,30 and a 72-hour
ticket 16,50. Tickets must be validated before getting

inexpensive way to get around town. The U-Bahn (metro)
runs daily from 05:00 to 00:30, and non-stop on Fridays and

November - December 2016

Vienna Districts
4, 5, 6. NASCHMARKT
This is currently Viennas most vibrant area with chic cafes
and people strolling past trendy stores and art galleries. You
would not want to miss out on a visit to Viennas central
Naschmarkt, selling all sorts of food and with amazing
restaurants and cosy cafs where many tourists and locals
enjoy a break. The Freihausviertel south of Naschmarkt in
the 4th district is the upcoming chic shopping mile. The
6th district, north of Naschmarkt, is known for its many gay
bars.

Vienna is truly the most international city in Austria, if not


in all of Central Europe, hosting the regional headquarters
of many international enterprises, the UN, OSCE and
OPEC. In the central districts you will have no problem
communicating in English. Vienna has 23 districts, with
the 1st being the city centre, N2-9 wrapped around it
and surrounded by the Grtel highway. Districts 10-23 are
mainly residential areas. Every district is attractive in its own
way and equally important, generally safe for tourists.

1. CITY CENTRE
The city centre literally refers to the very heart of Vienna. In the
mid-19th century Viennas old city wall was replaced by the
boulevard which in conjunction with the Franz-Josefs-Kai now
forms a ring around the city centre. Magnificent buildings such
as the state opera house, the Hofburg, the parliament building,
the Vienna city hall, the Burgtheater, the university, the Vienna
stock exchange and numerous prestigious buildings line this
splendid boulevard. Most 5-star hotels as well as major sights
are located here. Tourists will spend most of their time in this
area, with everything more or less within walking distance.
While Krnterstrasse and Graben are the two major shopping
streets in the city centre, Stephansplatz with St. Stephens
cathedral is the very centre of Vienna.

2. PRATER
The citys largest park stretches from the Praterstern metro
and train station towards the Ernst Happel stadium. Next
to Praterstern is the Wurstelprater amusement park. Some
say its better to avoid this area after dark. Leopoldstadt in
Viennas 2nd district used to be the Jewish part of town.
Today the jewish community is again growing and you will
find kosher bakeries and a number of synagogues.

3. BELVEDERE
& HUNDERTWASSERHAUS
The third district is one of Viennas most desirable addresses.
Several buildings designed by Viennas most unusual architect
Friedenreich Hundertwasser, as well as Belvedere Palace, the
luxurious residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy, are all located
here. In addition, the district houses numerous embassies and
foreign missions, hence its name the Embassy Quarter.
10 Vienna In Your Pocket

6, 7. MARIAHILFERSTRASSE
AREA
Mariahilferstrasse is known as Central and Eastern Europes
most important shopping street. Since the fall of the Iron
Curtain, hundreds of buses bring shoppers from Hungary,
Czech Republic and Slovakia to Viennas top shopping
street to get their Christmas presents. A lot of interesting
stores, nice restaurants and relaxed bars are found strolling
around the side streets.

7, 8, 9. GRTEL AREA
Grtel is the name of the highway ring that encircles
Viennas central districts 1-9. In the zone between
Westbahnhof station and the Danube canal, the red-light
district has developed into Viennas hottest nightlife spot
with dozens of clubs and bars, one after the other. Go and
find a bar that fits your taste!

CRIME & SAFETY


Vienna is a safe city to visit, and theres little to fear except
perhaps for spending too much on food and souvenirs. As
elsewhere, avoid dark alleys at night and clutch your wallet
or purse when using public transport or in busy places.

DISABLED TRAVELLERS
Most hotels, restaurants and sights in Vienna are wellequipped for people in wheelchairs or otherwise requiring
assistance, and public transport is easy to use with its many
escalators, lifts and low-floor trams. The symbols below
our hotel reviews which hotels are suitable. The city has an
informative site for disabled travellers at www.wien.info/
en/travel-info/accessible-vienna.

ELECTRICITY
Austrian electrical current is 220v AC, and the country uses
the standard European round, two-pin sockets.

MONEY & COSTS


Austria uses the euro () with banknotes in denominations of
5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500. Coins, whose design
depends on in which country they were minted, come in
denominations of 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1
and 2. ATMs can be found everywhere in Vienna and are the
best way to get cash. Vienna is not an overly expensive city by
Western European standards and competition from nearby
cheap countries keeps the price of for instance cigarettes at bay.
Viennas status of a social democratic stronghold means that
public services such as public transport are relatively cheap.
facebook.com/ViennaInYourPocket

POLITICS
The current mayor of Vienna is Michael Hupl. Since 1917,
Vienna has been (co-)governed by the Social Democratic
Party with an absolute majority in the city parliament
(except from 1934 to 1945 when the party was banned
and mayors were appointed by the Austro-fascist and
later by Nazi authorities). The Social Democrats currently
rule in coalition with the Green Party. Many political
experts believe that the rival Austrian Peoples Party would
completely dominate Austrian politics if it werent for the
Social Democrats unbreakable hold on Vienna. An example
of the citys many social democratic policies is the low-cost
Gemeindebauten residential estates which house about
25% of the Viennese population.

SMOKING
Officially all restaurants, cafs and other such venues
have to provide a non-smoking section. While recently
many restaurants turned into smoke-free zones, dont be
surprised how smoky many bars and clubs can get. Most
traditional coffee houses will have a smoking area.

TIPPING
If the service merits it, waiters appreciate a tip of about
10%; at the bar or at the Wrstelstand its common to round
up the sum a little.

Daytime fun
The central Riesenradplatz square takes you back
to the charming Vienna of 1900; experience the
traditions and original rides from that era. For
young children, the Prater is a world of experience
where they can play and be entertained to their
hearts content.
As a special treat, Santa will arrive in the famous
Coca-Cola Christmas Truck, dazzlingly lit with
379 metres of light chains, on 3, 4, 17 and 18
December from 18:00.
Older children can scream their way through the
haunted house on the ghost train ride, surf the crest
of the wave on a roller coaster. Children and adults
alike will love the worlds tallest carousel, where
you can endlessly spin and swing round and round
in the seats hanging from chains. Or what about
gaping at the wax celebrities at Madame Tussauds
or seeing the Great Wall of China in 5D? There are
plenty of hot drinks and bites at the winter market
to keep you in a warm winter mood.
For older children and adults, the ghoulish Ybbstaler
canyon demons visit the market during the traditional
Perchten Parade on 27 November at 17:00; dressed in
devilishly good outfits with scary masks.

Weihnachts und Kuzlturmarkt Schnbrunn

Foto gerhard Fally / MTS

Like elsewhere in Central Europe, the tradition of the


Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt) dates back to a
distant past and recreates this warm nostalgic feeling
of the times gone by. Historians believe that the first
Christmas markets appeared in Vienna as early as in the
13th century, when Bishop Albrecht I granted the city
the right to hold a December Advent market, then called
Krippenmarkt. Since those days, the tradition of Christmas
markets has been maintained and cherished although
the new age of commercialisation has undoubtedly left
its traces. Vienna boasts about 20 Christmas markets,
starting as early as mid-November and staying open until
Christmas; the markets at the Prater and Schnbrunn
remain open until early January. Numerous stalls featuring
a vast array of decorations, toys, glassware, artwork, crystal,
handicraft goods, smiley gingerbread cookies, roasted
chestnuts (Maroni), sausages, honey, candles and of
course effervescent mulled wine with spices (Glhwein)
and invigorating fruit Punsch with rum. The markets also
offer exciting entertainment for families with children; they
can bake their own gingerbread cookies, paint Christmas
decorations or recite poems for Santa.
ART ADVENT ON KARLSPLATZ
The market on the square in front of the impressive
Karlskirche is quite different from the others; all goods
sold here are hand-made by local artists and craftsmen,
with live demonstrations and raised stages for small
children to see better. Most food and drink is regional and
organic, including the amazing oven-baked flatbread and

NEW YEARS EVE IN VIENNA


Up to 250,000 visitors are expected to celebrate

centre present DJ music and performances - from
waltzes and operettas to rock and pop, the wide range
of music means everyone has something to dance to.
But it isnt really 2017 until the Pummerin, Austrias
largest bell in the north tower of the Stephansdom,
has rung in the new year. At midnight, theres a large
fireworks show at Heldenplatz. If youre celebrating
New Year at the Prater, theres a series of concerts and
musical fireworks below the Ferris Wheel from 20:00.

MuseumsQuartier Wien

IMPERIAL STABLES
TO CULTURAL HOTSPOT
In the heart of the city, the 300-year history of the
MuseumsQuartier Wien, Vienna's top museum complex,
starts in the early 18th century when it was commissioned
as a grand imperial stable building with a 400-metre wide
Baroque facade. After being used as a fair and exhibitions
venue, it was finally renovated and turned into a new
centre for modern art in 2001. At 90,000 square metres and
housing 60 cultural institutions the MuseumsQuartier Wien
is one of the largest such cultural hotspots in the world
yet is also an oasis of calm in the busy city. Here, art meets
space and creates a unique atmosphere that makes the
large courtyard such an excellent spot for events.

WINTER IM MQ
The winter season at the MuseumsQuartier runs until Friday
23 December. The whole complex is lit up beautifully, with
light carpets, artistic image projections and a very special

lighting method for the trees inside the courtyard. There's


the MQ Point (10:00 - 19:00) with unusual Christmas
decorations, humorous gift ideas, art, fashion etc. and in
the courtyard the six beautiful Ice Pavillions designed by
Austrian artist Gerry Ammann sell a variety of punch and
mulled wine drinks and snacks. Events like the Winter Race
minature car race (Sat & Sun, 14:00 - 18:00) and the Winter
Sounds (Thu, Fri 16:00 - 22:00; Sat & Sun 14:00 - 22:00)
brighten up the busy weekends. Until 20 November, the
spectacular rooftop hosts the (free) 'The Invisible Show'
every day from 17:00 - 19:00; seven artists have recreated
the MQ complex in minature, which can be explored with
an audiotour by Austrofred. The winter season is officially
opened with a festival on Thursday 3 November; from 17:00
there's plenty of music, cultural events and warm punch is
sold for charity. Keep an eye on the website www.mqw.at/

This winter at the Kunsthalle Wien enjoy new solo


exhibitions by Sarah Morris and Babette Mangolte. In
Falls Never Breaks, Sarah Morris screens her film Strange
Magic, an image-based fantasy of a luxurious life which
receives visual feedback on a real assembly line, that is
not necessarily glamorous in itself. That makes Morris a
subtle critic of the system in the classic sense.
In the other exhibition hall at the Kunsthalle, I = Eye
presents a diverse array of Babette Mangoltes films
and photographic works, including recent projects
revisiting the transcription of performance and its
historicisation. They connect influences from silent
cinema, American experimental films, and feminist film
theory in an absolutely unique form to generate her
very special style.

Vienna has always been synonymous with music for
centuries. Some of the greatest musical figures in history
lived and worked in Vienna: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,
Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert,
Johann Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schnberg, Alban
Berg to name a few of them. Writing to his father in 1781,
Mozart said: Vienna is the best place in the world for my
profession. Because of the importance of these musicians
the tradition is maintained in Vienna by regular concert
events and festivals. Attractive concerts are held every
day of the year. But Vienna is also the capital of the waltz.
The Vienna Philharmonics New Years Concert is the most
famous classical concert in the world. It takes place every
year on 1 January at the Musikverein and always ends with
the Blue Danube waltz by Johann Strauss Junior. Another
fixed attraction in Austrian musical life is the Vienna Boys
Choir, one of the oldest boys choirs in the world. For nearly
five hundred years they have been a symbol of Austria.
And, as ever, every Sunday the Vienna Boys Choir sing
solemn mass in Viennas Hofburg chapel, continuing a
tradition unbroken since 1498.

Viennas cosmopolitan character is reflected by a great


range of fine international restaurants. No matter if you are
looking for an exclusive restaurant in the first district or

news: compared to other European cities typical tourist

AUSTRIAN
Viennese cuisine stands out for its superb cakes and
pastries, but a wide range of other unique dishes, like
Wiener Schnitzel and Tafelspitz are also steeped in local
history. The cooking tradition here has been inspired by
many cultures throughout the centuries. During the 17th
and 18th centuries, Italian and French cuisine made their
way into the Viennese palate, followed by strong Bohemian
and Hungarian influences in the 19th century, creating a
local cuisine both unique and delicious.

Coffeehouses
Vienna is one of those cities where coffee is much more
than just a drink. Many coffee houses in Vienna date back
to the 19th century, when there was little private heating,
and people used the coffee houses as a second living
room, because they could not afford to heat their homes.
Unlike some other caf traditions around the world, it is
completely normal for a customer to linger alone for hours
and study the omnipresent newspapers. Along with coffee,
the waiter will serve an obligatory glass of cold tap water
and during a long stay will often bring additional water
unrequested, with the idea being that you are a guest who
should feel welcome and not pressured to leave. Many
cafs provide small food dishes like sausages as well as
desserts, cakes and tarts, like Apfelstrudel and Linzer Torte.
In many classic cafs piano music is played in the evenings
and social events like literary readings are held.

VIENNESE COFFEEHOUSES
CAF CENTRAL
Originally opened in 1860, Caf Central boasts a number
of famous regulars over the years, including Leo Trotsky,
Adolf Loos, Vladimir Lenin and Sigmund Freud. The caf,
restored in 1986, is reminiscent of both the intellectuals
who frequented the caf and the imperial grandeur of
Austria. Caf Central is perfectly situated behind the
Hofburg, making it an ideal place to stop for a delicious
piece of Apfelstrudel and rich hot chocolate after youve
spent hours wandering through the nearby twin museums

CAF LANDTMANN
Located in the heart of Vienna, this caf has a definite

government. The caf specializes in seasonal and Austrian
deserts, and the excellent brews will remind you why
Vienna is so well known for its coffee. The waiting staff has
retained many typical aspects of Viennas coffee culture, so
beware the Wiener Schmh, it just might put a big smile
on your face.QA1, Universittsring 4, MSchottentor,

ball-shaped lamps bring a cosy contemporary feel, and the

prepared to share with strangers. The beer selection is weak

1010-Vienna Schwarzenbergstrae 2/Krugerstrae 18

Sightseeing
The first district, surrounded by the majestic imperial
buildings along the Ringstrasse, is Viennas historical centre.
Many of the important sights, such as the impressive St.
Stephens Cathedral, the gigantic Hofburg, Viennas town
hall, and many of the main museums are located here, all
within walking distance. But a lot of essential Vienna lies
beyond it. Outlying sights, such as Schlo Schnbrunn, or
the funfair and parks of the Prater are musts for every visitor.
Using public transport to get to these places is easy.

MAIN SIGHTS
BELVEDERE
Named for the Italian phrase for beautiful view, the
Belvedere palace complex was originally conceived as a
summer country estate for Prince Eugene of Savoy, one of
the most celebrated military heroes in European history. His
impressive collection of artwork is displayed here, along with
more recent additions from the royal Habsburg holdings.
The Upper Belvederes major attraction is undoubtedly
Gustav Klimts famous painting The Kiss, which can also be
seen on countless scarves, mugs, posters and other trinkets
sold by surrounding shops and street vendors. While most
visitors skip the Lower Belvedere, its collection of curiously
troubling Messerschmidt heads make the extra few euros
for a combination ticket well worthwhile. To get here, take
tram D to the Schloss Belvedere stop.QC4, Prinz-EugenStr. 27, tel. +43 1 79 55 70, www.belvedere.at. Open
10:00 - 18:00, Wed 10:00 - 21:00. Admission 3.50-13.50.

DANUBE TOWER VIENNA
Architect Hannes Lintl designed the Vienna Donauturm
in 1964 for the Viennese International Horticultural Show.
Since then it has become a part of the Viennese skyline, a
popular lookout point and a tourist attraction. The Vienna
Donauturm located near the northern bank of the Danube
in the middle of the Donaupark, which was built to host the
horticultural fair in Viennas 22nd District, Donaustadt. It is
one of Viennas tallest building with a height of 252 meters.
776 steps lead to its viewing platform, which is at a height
of 150 meters, but there are two elevators taking visitors
on a 35 second ride to the top. On the platform are two
revolving restaurants offering a magnificent panoramic
view, and during the summer there is also a bungee site.

HOFBURG
Home to the Habsburg monarchy for more than six
centuries, the ten major buildings comprising the
Hofburg complex represent the splendour and influence
of what was once the mightiest empire in Europe. While
this has been the site of countless decisive historical
events, the sweeping arcaded faade of the Neue Burg
earned worldwide notoriety in April of 1938, when Adolf
Hitler spoke to a crowd of 200,000 people from its central
balcony. Nearly every Austrian monarch has left his (or
her) fingerprint on the layout of this palace, resulting
42 Vienna In Your Pocket

in a stylistic mishmash and a wide array of museums.


Maps in several languages are posted in the courtyards
throughout the complex, but here are the highlights:
the Schatzkammer (Imperial Treasury) houses the crown
jewels, as well as the nail supposed to have pierced
Christs right hand and the so-called Spear of Destiny.
If youre into impressive baroque interiors, the reading
room of the Nationalbibliothek (National Library) is a
highlight. For those with a fascination for sordid dynastic
family histories, a ticket to the Kaiserappartements
(Emperors Apartments) includes the Silberkammer
(Silver Vault) and Sisimuseum (Sisi Museum), lending an
intimate insight into the private lives of Emperor Franz
Joseph and his wife, Elizabeth of Bavaria (better known
locally as Sisi). The dancing white Lippizaner horses of
the Spanische Hofreitschule (Spanish Riding School)
perform here, as well as the boy sopranos and altos of

HUNDERTWASSER-KRAWINAHAUS
This vibrant and fanciful public housing complex,
now an iconic landmark of the work of Austrias own
architectural iconoclast, Friedensreich Hundertwasser,
regularly tops lists of visitors favourite sights in Vienna.
As you can probably tell by the Gaudi-esque shapes
and colourful palate, Hundertwasser embraced a
playful, environmentally-focused artistic philosophy. He
proclaimed that straight lines were godless and immoral,
that every building should have as many trees as tenants,
that rolling, uneven floors were a divine melody to the
feet, and that access to a window was a basic human
right. While entering the building is not permitted (it
is a private residence for 52 families and 250 trees and
shrubs), the Kunsthaus Wien, located just down Untere
Weigerberstrae, features a small museum and caf
dedicated to this controversial figure.QI2, Kegelgasse

MUSEUMSQUARTIER WIEN
Formerly the imperial court stables, the MuseumQuarter
Wien complex now functions as a lively meeting point for
young artists, musicians and students. The ten museums
and venues housed here focus on fostering the creation of
art as well as its appreciation, so exhibitions, performances
and workshops in a range of disciplines (as well as free
wireless internet) are offered to the public year-round. In
warm weather, the central courtyard features a ptanque
field, mini-racecar track, outdoor bars and restaurants, and
distinctive brightly coloured outdoor couch-like Enzis, so
you can grab a cold beer and get to know the locals. Keep
an eye on the schedule for their indoor and outdoor events
in both summer and winter.QG3, Museumsplatz 1,

SCHLOSS SCHNBRUNN (SCHNBRUNN PALACE)


This magnificent summer palace of the Habsburg royalty truly
embodies the opulence of the Baroque era, from its topiary
maze and minutely manicured gardens to the ornately detailed
interiors. Several tour packages offer access to the highlights
of its 1,441 rooms, which have witnessed imperial births and
deaths, the signings of treaties, legendary performances, and a
veritable whos who of European history. A visit to Schnbrunn
isnt complete without a walk around the park grounds; the
Tiergarten is the oldest continuously running zoo in the
world, and while modest in scale, it boasts a comprehensive
feeding schedule and well-designed enclosures. If youre the
more intrepid sort, definitely opt for a hike up the hill to the
ornamental Gloriette, where you can refuel with Kaffee and a
Kipferl, just like Empress Maria Theresa did more than 250 years
ago.QD4, Schnbrunner Schlossstr. 47, MSchnbrunn,

SCHATZKAMMER (IMPERIAL TREASURY)


In the Hofburgs oldest inner courtyard, the Habsburg
Imperial Treasury contains a fascinating array of many of the
empires most valuable artefacts. Gape at the crown jewels,
ornate reliquaries, monstrances, embroidered vestments,
a splinter of the true cross (plus one of the nails). Theres
also the enigmatic Spear of Destiny, long believed to have
been the one thrust into Christs side, and credited with

SECESSION
This remarkable building was conceived as a deliberate
opposition to the predominant artistic nostalgia of
the early 20th century, and most of Vienna ridiculed
its crowning gold sphere as a goldenes Krauthappel
or golden cabbage when it was unveiled in 1898.
Today, the vegetable-ism has become something of
an endearment with the building featured on the back
of Austrian-minted 0,50 coins, and the building has
functioned as a forum for modern Austrian artists for
more than 100 years. The main attraction is undoubtedly
Gustav Klimts Beethoven Frieze, but the higher ticket
price will also snag you entry to the other exhibitions.

Jewish Vienna
There are few cities in Europe where the Jewish
population has been so deeply ingrained, and yet, has
experienced such devastation during the persistent waves
of anti-Semitism and in the World War II, as Vienna. The
historical, political and economic contribution of the Jewish
community into this citys past and present can hardly be
underestimated. It would suffice to say that three of four
Nobel Prize Winners from Austria were Jewish. Luminaries
such as the father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, writers
Arthur Schnitzler and Stefan Zweig, composers Gustav
Mahler and Emmerich Kalman, and the founder of modern
Zionist movement Theodore Herzl, all lived and worked
here and were all of Jewish origin.

The Sigmund Freud Museum


Berggasse 19 in Viennas ninth district has become one
of the worlds most famous addresses: Here is where
Sigmund Freud lived and worked for 47 years until he
was driven into exile in 1938. Pioneering works such as
The Interpretation of Dreams were written in the study.
In these rooms, the Sigmund Freud Museum presents an
exhibition documenting the life and work of the founder
of psychoanalysis with unique film material depicting the
Freud family and original objects and furniture from Freuds
belongings.

48 Vienna In Your Pocket

EARLY HISTORY
The first mention of Jews in Vienna is from the 12th
century. By 1420 the Jews had comprised about 5% of
the citys population, but soon they were expelled from
the city, their property was confiscated, and many were
brutally murdered in nearby Erdberg. Later in the 15th
century they were allowed to return and establish their
own colony in Leopoldstadt. Under the reign of Empress
Maria Theresa laws were introduced that substantially
worsened the condition of the Jews; these were later
repealed, and Vienna became the center of Jewish culture
in Central Europe.

JEWISH RENAISSANCE AND


THE RISE OF ANTI-SEMITISM
The years following the Revolution of 1848 were quite stable
and prosperous for the Jewish community. The presence of
the Jews became obvious in the citys social, economic and
political life. Anti-Semitic feelings were formented by many
of Viennas public officials and politicians, one of the most
radical of them being Dr. Karl Lueger, the Mayor of Vienna
from 1897 to 1910. Early in the 20th century, twenty-one
members of the extreme anti-Semitic All-Deutsche Partei
were elected into parliament.

WORLD WAR II
AND THE HOLOCAUST
On March 12, 1938, Hitler marched into Vienna and made
a speech at the balcony of the Hofburg Palace. Almost
immediately, Aryan-only laws were enacted, and Jews were
deprived of civil rights, were not permitted to own land or
hold public office. On November 9, 1938, the notorious
Kristallnacht occurred, when angry residents, driven by
the Nazi party, torched Jewish businesses and synagogues.
About 6,000 Jews were apprehended and sent to Dachau
camp that day. Following the Wannsee Conference of
1942, Jews were stripped of their citizenship and mass
deportations to concentration camps ensued. The Jewish
community, that had counted over 200 thousand people
in 1938, was all but decimated. More than 130,000 were
forced to leave the country, about 65,000 were murdered.
Less than 1,000 managed to survive the catastrophe.

Jewish Vienna

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY


TODAY
It took Austria almost fifty years to come to terms and accept
its role in the holocaust. Traces of anti-Semitism continued
through the 1980s and can still be felt to this day. Not until 1991
did the government finally issue a statement acknowledging
their role in the Third Reich. The Jewish population has been
growing since the 1950s, primarily due to immigration from
Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Iran; today it
stands at about 14,000 and there are fifteen synagogues.

FREUD IN VIENNA
Sigmund Freud, one of Viennas most prominent Jewish
intellectuals, lived and worked at Berggasse 19 between
1859 and 1938. Hes now recognized as the founder
of modern psychology, but when he was in Vienna,
Freuds career as a researcher and theorist was heavily
marked by confrontation and opposition due to the
strong anti-Semitic attitude in Viennese politics and
society. Consequently, Freud did not enjoy much local
recognition for his work on psychoanalysis, which was
held in low regard and labelled as a Jewish science, and
his career at the University of Vienna stagnated crumbled.
After the annexation of Austria in 1938 he fled to London,
but despite the constant ostracism he experienced in
Vienna, he always longed for his former home.

Expat Vienna
So youve decided to settle down in Vienna; perhaps youve
met your sweetheart here, or have been dispatched to work
here by your boss. Whatever brings you to this city, do keep
in mind that just as anywhere else, youll be confronted
by both pros and cons of living in a foreign country and
in a different cultural environment. While Vienna has long
been a cosmopolitan city with headquarters of major
international organizations, such as the UN, OPEC or OSCE,
and it does have a sizeable expat population, you will still
be facing certain dilemmas ranging from how to find an
apartment, where to send your children to school, and
not least important, how to make yourself comfortable
and find a circle of friends here. We have assembled some
useful information for you, and while it is by no means allinclusive, we believe that it will help you make a good start.
To the benefit of Vienna, it is one of the easier cities to
live in for several reasons:
It has one of the highest standards of living in the world
and has continuously been rated the best place to live by
Mercer and other rating agencies;
It boasts excellent infrastructure. Public transport is quite
affordable and runs on time, and the city streets, for the
most part, tend to be kept clean and safe;
Vienna has good healthcare system although you should
expect somewhat longer waiting times to see a specialist
than, for instance, in the US. Family physicians are usually
quite accessible and you dont normally have to wait
long. For EU citizens, healthcare is available via panEuropean e-card;
It has countless opportunities for cultural and intellectual
fulfilment and features a number of world-class
museums, theatres and opera houses;
Viennas greenery and recreational areas are meticulously
maintained and the city has vast opportunities for
exercising and sports;
Although Vienna is quintessentially a German-speaking
city, language shouldnt be a serious problem. Many
locals, particularly of the younger generation, have a
superb command of English and are willing to use it.
That said, dont expect every corner baker, hairstylist or
plumber to understand you, try to pick up some useful
phrases in German before you arrive or sign up for a
language course when you are here.
Yet, despite those numerous advantages, its not that
everything is hunky-dory in this city, and there are
certain bumpy areas you should beware of:
Vienna is a costly city to live in. Food, especially that of
high quality, tends to be on the pricey side, as are most
services and utilities. Although not quite as outrageous as
in London or Paris, living in Vienna is substantially more
expensive than in cities like Berlin or Prague;
Finding a suitable place to live in might be your biggest
challenge. Due to extreme shortage of prime real estate,
many apartments in Vienna tend to be old, unfurnished
and seriously overpriced. Furthermore, 95% of property
is rental, so buying an apartment, should you wish to do
this, may prove nearly impossible, especially for non-EU
50 Vienna In Your Pocket

residents (unless, of course, you are an oil tycoon or a


famous opera star);
Although they are used to foreigners (and perhaps
exactly for that reason), the Viennese dont usually accept
outsiders with open arms, which explains why making
friends in this city may turn into an uphill battle. It certainly
helps to have a sizeable expat and immigrant community,
but the truth is that no matter how long you have stayed
in Vienna and how well youve mastered German, you will
be reminded time and again that you are a foreigner here.
For many expats, especially those coming from Englishspeaking countries, impersonal and often sloppy
customer service in Vienna can be a bitter pill to swallow
(see our Snooty Service box). Since there isnt much we
can do to change it, just take it in stride and get used to it.
After a while, it simply becomes another routine.

FLOWERS

While Vienna definitely has no shortage of major brand


names featuring both extravagant luxury collections and
informal street-style fashion, we thought that rather than
listing the ever-present Benettons, H&Ms and Zaras of the
world, we would direct you to some of Viennas numerous
hidden treasures that sell unique items not to be found on
every street corner in every other city. Most of the shops
mentioned here are located in the citys up-and-coming
districts where trendy style-conscious people live and work
- Freihausviertel, Naschmarkt and Neubau.

Probably the most exclusive florist in Vienna, Sdtler has
supplied beautiful bouquets, wreaths and other floral
arrangements for all occasions since the 19th century.

MEET THE CONCIERGE


Together with In Your
Pocket, the citys hotel
concierges are important
sources of information
for travellers. Recognised
by the golden crossed
keys on the lapels of
their
jackets,
good
concierges will be able
to give you restaurant
and sightseeing tips, and
can book event tickets
for you. In this issue,
we speak to Marion Trathnigg, concierge at the
Park Hyatt Vienna. Miss Trathnigg rolled into the
concierge trade at the Hotel Sans Souci and soon
decided to focus on this profession, later working
at Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom, and Hotel Knigshof
in Munich before joining the Park Hyatt. "I love
the combination of organisation, doing the nearimpossible and intensive contact with the hotel
guests and after two years in Munich I'm delighted
to be back in Vienna again."
This makes our hotel special... The Hyatt combines
its core values of respect, creativity, empathy and
integrity with the wish to give the guests the best
possible service. This spirit can be felt throughout
the hotel and makes working here very rewarding.
Unusual guest requests... One guest from the
Middle East requested a hammer once for making
a hole in the bathroom wall in order to attach a hose
for a bidet. In the end our technical service delighted
the lady without any drastic remodelling, by laying a
hose through her room.
Special restaurants I recommend... I love Oswald
& Kalb for an Austrian night out as they have an
excellent kitchen and a nice, rustic atmosphere. A
great modern alternative is the Do & Co Albertina
which offers a mix of upmarket cuisine and elegant
design.
Special sights I recommend... The Minoritenkirche,
an old Italian church in Gothic style right in the
centre of town, behind Herrengasse. It houses
an exact mosaic copy of Leonardo da Vinci's 'Last
Supper'.
In Your Pocket... helps many of our Englishlanguage guests who arrive with no plans for Vienna
find their way around; Vienna In Your Pocket is
wonderfully suitable for this, with its short reviews of
all interesting spots complete with opening hours.
