Arts and Culture
Vienna is the home to many magnificent buildings, such as the Hofburg, Schönbrunn Castle and Belvedere Castle. The revered Spanish Riding School in Vienna, with its famous Lipizzaner horses, was marked as a UN World Cultural Heritage site in 2010.
Music was and is in fact still a focal point in Vienna’s culture. Great composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss, Mahler and Schönberg are a testament to Vienna’s significant role in musical history. The Vienna Waltz, of course, has its origins here and is celebrated by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic Orcestra , Vienna State Opera ensemble and the Concentus Musicus Vienna. Playing host to a number of museums, concert halls, stages, festivals and diverse eateries, the MuseumQuartier offers a rich program all year round.
