Location

Vienna, considered by many to be the cultural capital of Europe, is a city with unique flair,  liveliness and charm. Generations of artists, students and connoisseurs of life have sought out Vienna for its inspirational art and architecture, parks and palaces, music and opera, and of course, the famous Viennese coffee houses. Vienna was selected “World’s best place to live” in Mercer‘s annual Quality of Living Survey for five years in a row! (2009-2014). Like Geneva, Vienna is the home of many multinational headquarters for the CEE region and international organizations such as the United Nations, OSCE, OPEC, just to name a few. Vienna is located in the heart of Europe with easy access to many major European cities and historical sites.
