Austria, at the geographical heart of Europe, is

renowned for its ski resorts set on spectacular

mountains, overlooking crystal-clear lakes and

voluptuously green valleys. Throughout the country are

glorious architectural reminders of the once-powerful

Habsburg, who dominated central Europe for seven

centuries. Nowhere is the legacy more evident than in

the capital, Vienna, with its ornate Opera House and the

former imperial spa residence of the Hofburg. Austria’s

other cities are similarly infused with a historical magic,

notably Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart, with

stunning Baroque churches set before a backdrop of

snow-covered peaks, and Innsbruck, in the center of the

Austrian Alps. But Austria is also a hothouse of striking

contemporary architecture, reflecting a modern country

at the forefront of engineering, invention and design,

and whose modern, efficient social system ensures a

high quality of living for most of its residents. Austria

has a justifiable reputation for music, literature and the

arts, but also boasts a gourmet culture. The legendary

Gemütlichkeit – a relaxed enjoyment of life – is in

evidence in the cafes, where the art of coffee-drinking

has been raised to a fine art, and the many Heurigen,

where the latest vintages are accompanied by vast

quantities of food. Nightlife is versatile, offering

laid-back taverns, beer gardens and excellent

après-ski, as well as trendy clubs and dance venues

packed to the small hours.

of the city. Airport buses run between the airport and

the South Train and West Train Station (travel time

30 minutes). Rail service is available at frequent

intervals. Local rail (S-Bahn) services run to the city

center (travel time 25 minutes). The City Airport Train

travels express from the City Airport Terminal located

at Vienna Mitte (travel time 16 minutes). Taxis are

available to the city and can be found north of the

Arrivals Hall. A chauffeur-driven car service is also

available from the Arrivals Hall.

Innsbruck (Kranebitten) (INN)

Social & Business Customs

Food: Austrian cuisine is strongly influenced by

southeast European cuisine notably that of Hungary,

Serbia, Romania and Dalmatia. Many of the simpler

meals are often made with rice, potatoes and dumplings

with liquid sauces. Open all day, the Austrian coffee

shop is little short of an institution.

Drink: Whisky, gin and imported beers are on the

expensive side but local wines are excellent and cheap.

Most of the wines are white but there are also good

reds. Registration laws mean that the quality of the wine

will be fully reflected in its price.

Nightlife: The Austrians believe in "early to bed and

early to rise" so nightlife in Vienna is relatively quiet.

One of the best ways to spend an evening is in one of

the wine gardens found outside the towns.

Shopping: High-quality goods, handbags, glassware,

chinaware and winter sports equipment represent the

cream of specialist items. A 20% to 32% value-added

tax (called MWST) is included in the list price of items

sold and tourists can claim a partial refund on this tax

on unused goods, which are taken with them when they

leave Austria.

Shopping Hours: Shops and stores are generally open

Mon to Fri 8AM-6PM. Big shops and stores in tourist

resorts now open until 9PM. Saturday opening hours

are 12-5PM.

Social: Austrians tend to be quite formal in both their

social and business dealings. They do not use first

names when being introduced but after the initial

meeting first names are often used. Handshaking is

normal when saying hello and good-bye. It is considered

impolite to enter a restaurant or shop without saying

Guten Tag or more usually Grüss Gott; similarly, to leave

without saying Auf Wiedersehen can cause offense. If

invited out to dinner, flowers should be brought for

the hostess. The Church enjoys a high and respected

position in Austrian society, which should be kept in

mind by the visitor.

Tipping: Is widespread but large amounts are not

expected. On restaurant bills a service charge of

10-15% is included, but it is usual to leave a further 5%.

Attendants at theaters, cloakrooms, petrol pumps, etc

expect to be tipped 50 cents. Railway and airports have

fixed charges for portage. Taxi drivers expect EUR 2 for

a short trip and 10% for a longer one.

Business: Austrians are quite formal in their business

dealings. A working knowledge of German will be very

advantageous. Office hours: Mon-Fri 8:00AM-12:30PM

and 1:30-5:30PM.


Austria enjoys a moderate continental climate.

Summers are warm and pleasant with cool nights, and

winters are sunny with snow levels high enough for

winter sports.

Public Transportation

General Information

Wherever you go, the Austrian public transportation is

pleased to help you find your way. Most large cities and

towns feature several forms of public transportation,

including underground systems, buses, tram lines and

suburban railways which means getting around without

a car is generally not a problem. Austria's rail network

is comfortable, reliable and fast. The main rail website

(www.oebb.at) offers excellent information on timetables,

services and discounts.

General Information


Throughout the world, Austria is famed for the hospitality

and sociableness of its people. Whether at a typical

Heurigen wine tavern in Vienna, a Carinthian skiing lodge

or a gourmet restaurant in Vorarlberg - whoever comes

here in the company of friends or business partners will

stay on for hours on end, not least because there is

so much to enjoy. The tasty Austrian cuisine has won

acclaim far beyond the country’s borders, serving

traditional dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel

(Viennese-style escallops) or the legendary

Kaiserschmarren (torn, sugared pancakes with raisins)

alongside creative re-interpretations of traditional fare.

Because of that fabulous gastronomic wealth, separate

culinary regions have been designated, each with their

own specialties – from freshly caught Saibling trout in the

Ausseerland to spicy Pinzgau alp cheese, bean salad with

pumpkin seed oil in southern Styria, or tender venison

roast of Hochschwab deer. Austrian wines are

appreciated throughout the country and way beyond: In

addition to premier white wines, a growing number of

red wine varieties are garnering international awards.

Apart from the long-standing vintners, a new generation

of fledgling wine makers has been stepping into the

limelight recently.


Austria’s climate is moderate and agreeable. While

temperatures are higher in the eastern regions (hot

summers, moderately cold winters) they are cooler in the

mountain areas (shorter summers, longer winters). May,

September and October tend to be the driest months,

April and November are the wettest periods.

Customs Regulations

For European Union (EU) citizens, the regulations

applicable within the European Union apply. Travelers

from non-European countries require a valid passport that

entitles them to a three-month stay in Austria. Visitors

from these countries may only import "personal travel

goods" customs-free, i.e. such goods as they need on a

temporary basis for their personal use or consumption or

to exercise their profession.


The currency unit used in Austria is the EURO. 1 Euro =

100 cent Bank notes of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500

Euros and coins of 1 and 2 Euros as well as of 1, 2, 5,

10, 20 and 50 cents are in circulation. Foreign currency is

exchanged at all banks at the official exchange rate.

VAT Refund

For purchases exceeding EUR 75, travelers residing

outside the European Union may apply for a

reimbursement of value-added tax (VAT), provided these

goods are exported and the required export customs

formalities are completed. The required forms are

available in shops and stores displaying the "tax-free"

sticker. www.globalrefund.com

Venues For Group Events

Winners of international awards Isn’t it fascinating how different meeting venues can be? From a rustic hunting lodge

with a private fishery to an ultra-chic luxury locality downtown, or a spacious, hyper modern conference center able to

cater to some 10,000 delegates. What they all have in common is state-of-the art facilities and the fact that they have

been thoroughly vetted by ABCN and the convention bureaus and can therefore be wholeheartedly recommended. Our

choices have been endorsed by independent, international bodies. In 2004, the Bregenz festival and congress center on

Lake Constance received the APEX Award as one of the top three congress centers world-wide.

The major industry trends at a glance ABCN is one of five co-organizers of the annual access trade fair: This Austrian

specialized fair provides a unique platform for over 200 exhibitors from all fields of the conventions, meeting and incentive

industry. A great number of national and international trade visitors attend access to find out more about what is new in

the industry.

ABCN partners Who would be more familiar with what a region has to offer than the people who live there? For this

reason, we at ABCN work closely together with our partners, the Convention Bureaus in Austria’s provinces. They assist

us in choosing a destination and come up with proposals for the right location for your event. Our local counterparts are

always abreast of the latest developments and can recommend the best conference hotels, convention centers, venues

and accompanying programs.

Places Of Interest

Regions of interest Visitors who get to know Austria on business often develop a fondness for this country. No wonder:

the sheer beauty and diversity of its natural scenery is overwhelming. Think of sun-kissed Burgenland with its wide

stretches of steppe landscape and hundreds of birds species, think of the gently rolling hills of the Wachau valley and

its idyllic, terraced vineyards along the banks of the river Danube, or of Austria’s alpine west with its imposing mountain

ranges and extensive alpine pastures. Think of lakes and rivers so clean you can drink their water, think of crisp mountain

air that reinvigorates with every breath you take, ideal to draw energy and inspiration for novel plans and ideas. And

not to forget a myriad of opportunities for hiking and mountain biking, cannoning and rafting, but also skiing, snow-shoe

rambling or cross-country skiing – a perfect counterpoise to intellectual flights of fancy.

Historic Sites Whatever location you have in mind for your event in Austria, the next town or city with a panoply of cultural

attractions is only a stone’s throw away. Often, historic old city centers can be found side by side with futurist architecture

that has caused a buzz internationally, such as the Kunsthaus art gallery in the old town of Graz whose facade shimmers

in all shades of blue, or the soberly elegant Lentos Museum in Linz on the river Danube. It is always worthwhile to stroll

aimlessly through the medieval streets of Vienna, Graz or Salzburg, to soak up the atmosphere, and to stop by at one of

the venerable coffee houses for a bracing Melange (cappuccino style coffee with milk) and a home-made apple strudel.

national conventions and meetings choose

Eto locate in Vienna, making the city one

of the leading convention destinations in the

world. Situated on the Danube River and

known for its music, art and cuisine, Austria’s

capital is also a popular incentive destination,

notes Gertraud Fischer, Marketing Assistant at

the InterContinental Vienna.

“Vienna combines a famous imperial

heritage with a modern lifestyle,” adds

Christian Mutschlechner of the Vienna

Convention Bureau. “However, what our visitors

say [is that] Vienna is less stressful and also

For environmentally-conscious groups,

Vienna is an ideal destination for planning and

implementing sustainable meetings. Known as

an extremely safe and clean city, Vienna has a

long tradition in environmental initiatives, such

as professional waste management, as well as

an extensive public transportation system and a

reputation as a green city with many parks.

Meeting Facilities

Whatever the size of your group, Vienna has

the infrastructure in place to meet your needs.

“Our large conference centers – the Austria

Center Vienna and the Reed Messe Wien – can

accommodate events up to 30,000 delegates,”

Mutschlechner says.

The city also offers a wide range of

meeting space located in hotels. Some of the

most popular meeting properties

include the Hilton Vienna,

InterContinental Wien, Austria

Trend Hotel Savoyen Vienna, NH

Vienna Airport, Vienna Marriott,

Radisson SAS Palais Hotel and the

Imperial Riding School Vienna, a

Renaissance Hotel, most of which

are situated around the city park.

Recently, Palais Events,

Radisson SAS Style Hotel, Palais

Niederösterreich and the Steigenberger

they are working together in

offering a new MICE venture – the

“Palaisviertel” in Vienna’s famous

Herrengasse. Combined, the three

historic meeting venues – Palais Ferstel, Palais

Daun-Kinsky and Palais Niederösterreich – and

the hotels offer 31 meeting rooms with more than

3,000 sqm/32,395 sqft of meeting space right

in the heart of Vienna. The hotels contribute 274

guest rooms to the mix.

Attractions Abound

After hours, Vienna offers a wide range of

options for entertainment and recreation. The

top draw for side programs is Schönbrunn

Palace, the Summer Residence of the

Habsburgs, which offers “a fantastic Palace

with a huge garden,” Mutschlechner says. In

addition to Schonbrunn Palace, Vienna has

a wide variety of former palaces that are

• Climate: Vienna has a humid continental

now open to the public and can be rented

for groups for evening events, such as Palais

Ferstel or the Palais Pallavicinie.

Most of the city’s museums are also

available for evening functions. For instance,

at the Museum of Fine Arts a group may

combine a dinner function with a private

tour to see the most famous paintings of the

museum, which include the largest Breughel

collection in the world.

For a more contemporary feel, planners

can book one of the modern venues at the

Danube, overlooking the whole city with a

view to the Vienna woods.

Architecture buffs won’t want to miss

St. Stephen’s Cathedral, which is Vienna’s

most famous landmark and Austria’s most

eminent Gothic edifice. And the Ringstrasse,

or Ring Boulevard, one of the city’s main

thoroughfares, is flanked by museums,

parliament, city hall and numerous city

mansions, representing a variety of

architectural styles.

While in Vienna, groups will want to

sample the city’s eponymous cuisine; Viennese

cuisine is the only cuisine in the world to

be named after a city. “Its dishes have their

origins in countries all over Europe,” Fischer

says. “Yet the culinary tradition owes its

unmistakable touch to the creativity of the city’s

chefs.” Most popular Viennese dishes include

the evergreens: wienerschnitzel and sachertorte.

And speaking of food, it’s important to

note that Vienna is the capital city with the

greatest number of vineyards located inside

its limits. As a result, groups often enjoy

spending an evening in one of the local wine


Just outside Vienna, groups can tour the

famous Danube Valley Wachau, a region of

beautiful old villages, steep vineyards and

medieval castles. On a boat trip through this

astounding landscape, visitors can discover

the old wine-merchants town of Krems, visit

the magnificent Benedictine Abbey of Melk, a

masterpiece of Austrian Baroque architecture,

and see the castle of Dürnstein where King

Richard Lionheart once was imprisoned while

waiting for his ransom to arrive from England.

The largest lake in Austria, Lake Neusiedl, is a

60-minute drive from Vienna. I&MI

Construction is underway on ME Vienna, a new hotel by Sol

Melia to be located on the banks of the Danube River. The hotel will

A Tough Ticket, But Worth It

The Spanish Riding School is the oldest and last Riding School in the world where classic

dressage is still practiced in its purest form. Founded in 1572, its name was derived

from the fact that the famed Lipizzaner horses were of Spanish origin. The Riders of

the Spanish Riding School train the horses and perform in the Winter Riding School in

the Vienna Hofburg (Imperial Palace) in a splendid Baroque hall built by Josef Emanuel

Fischer von Erlach between 1729 and 1735. The magnificent rooms are adorned with

chandeliers and set off the performance to best effects. Tickets are expensive, but the

elegant and complicated performance is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Beware: The shows

are often booked for months in advance, and in July and August the horses enjoy a welldeserved

summer break.

Pondering the Past

History buff alert! In a simple glass case in Vienna’s Naturhistorisches

Museum you’ll find one of the earliest images of the body made by

humankind – carved some 25,000 years ago. The famous Venus of

Willendorf was sculpted from limestone and is one of three such figurines

recovered from Paleolithic archeological sites at Willendorf in 1908

by Austrian archeologist Josef Szombathy. Even though the Venus of

Willendorf is one of the oldest and most famous ladies in all of art history,

she’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Her 10-cm/4-inch

high frame isn’t the most realistic of figures, but it’s surmised that her

exaggerated female attributes have something to do with ancient culture’s

great reverence for woman’s ability to bear children. Event planner alert!

The Domed Hall of the Natural History Museum is available for corporate

and special events.

The Only One of Its Era

One of Vienna’s most recognizable attractions,

the Giant Wheel is located in a large

wooded park and playground known as the

Prater. It was built in 1897 by an English

engineering firm and is the only one of its era

still standing (the ferris wheels in Chicago,

London, Blackpool and Paris have long since

been destroyed). The wheel, with its 15

gondolas, takes 20 minutes to revolve and

offers magnificent panoramic views of the city.

If you’re looking for something special, you

can book a romantic dinner for two, a cocktail

reception, café, party, or other event for up to

12 people in a specially designed “cabine.”

Café Culture

Café Central is probably one of the most famous cafes in the world due

to its high profile clientele, which included famous artists, writers and

intellectuals such as Lenin and Trotsky. The grand, cathedral-like setting,

with its marble pillared hall and soaring ceiling, is a fine setting for the

excellent coffee and Apfelstrudel that they serve, along with an assortment

of other desserts and pastries for tea. Light lunches are also served, and

the menu includes a variety of provincial dishes and Viennese specialties.

Piano music plays daily from 5pm.

A Viennese Institution

There are quite a number of markets where

you can buy fresh vegetables and assorted

tidbits, but Naschmarkt is more than that – it’s

a Viennese institution dating back to the 16th

century. The location itself is spectacular:

Wienfluss, Vienna’s second river, was roofed

over during the 19th century. Some dealers

put up their stalls on top of this roof and today

Naschmarkt is a unique architectural landmark

with a mixture of Austrian traditions and oriental

influences. It’s a great place to shop for goodies

or have lunch at one of the many stalls, coffee

shops and restaurants. And on Saturdays,

Vienna’s major flea market sells everything from

junk to fine antiques – just get there early!

Web: www.wien-vienna.com/naschmarkt.php

Home of the Hapsburgs

The magnificent Schönbrunn Palace was used

as the summer residence of the Hapsburgs

from the 18th century onwards. Set among

beautiful gardens, this vast, symmetrical

structure is everything you would imagine an

imperial palace to be. A tour offers visitors

the chance to view the superb assortment of

Baroque and Rococo State Rooms and admire

the famous ceiling frescoes of the Great Gallery

and the Hall of Mirrors, where Mozart once

played. The vast gardens are popular with

locals and tourists alike, and include a zoo, a

maze and labyrinth. Also within the grounds,

the Orangery plays host to classical concerts

during the summer season.

History of the Landtagssaal:

This room was erected in the 16th century in Renaissance style and decorated with valuable frescos by Antonio Beduzzi

in 1710. The Landtagssaal offers 346 sqm/3,725 sqft, steeped in the magic of centuries. For meetings, festive occasions,

concerts, and fashion shows for up to 340 guests.

History of the Rittersaal:

A place of decisions for centuries. On the justice throne, richly decorated with gold, the federal marshals passed sentence

in the 17th century. Today the historical throne ensemble still dominates the room, which is entered through three large

double doors, created by Thomas Abdank.

History of the Herrensaal:

Walking up to one of the large windows in the Herrensaal, one looks today still right at the Minoritenkirche (Church of the

Minor Friars), just as centuries ago, when the members of the upper classes met in this hall, which has room for up to

120 guests. 120 sqm/1,292 sqft of history for lectures, seminars and small functions.

History of the Prälatensaal:

After a varied history, the Prelates Hall today radiates new splendor once more with its valuable silk wallpaper in warm

golden hues. 81 sqm/872 sqft for up to 70 persons, for lectures, seminars and meetings.

Life’s Festive Occasions:

The later Gothic Landhauskapelle has room for up to 50 people and is, combined with celebrations afterwards in the state

rooms, for life’s greatest festive occasions.

Event Facilities

Meeting Rooms

LandhausKapelle/Gotisches Zimmer - Originally the home

of the so-called Staende, the political representatives of

upper classes, knights, prelates and towns. The Staende

were the precursors of the Lower Austrian Parliament.

The Staende acquired the Landhaus in 1513 in order to

be near the reigning prince and to hold assemblies in

Vienna. Precious interiors such as the Landhauskapelle

and the Gotisches Zimmer have remained from this late

Gothic building.


Grosser Saal - With its vault erected in the middle of

the 16th century, this conference hall was built in

renaissance style and decorated in the baroque period

with precious frescos that symbolize glory and honor. In

the 18th and 19th centuries the large Landhaussaal was

a very popular ballroom and concert hall, where many

important first performances took place.

Some historic details about the rooms:


Empress Maria Theresia had it built in 1753. Theater ensembles from Austria, France and Italy presented their newest

plays here. And today the Theatersaal experiences a Renaissance because more and more cultural events and

professional meetings take place in the splendid surrounding.

Ovaler Saal

This baroque room was the former dining room of the Empress. The wall paintings and the old wood floors were

completely restored. In summer the room can be opened up and joins the marble terrace and the palace park, creating a

one-of-a-kind ambiance and atmosphere. The room can be used for exhibitions, meetings and grand dinners.

Kaminzimmer fire place room)

In the old times this room was called the Chinese Room. It was quite fashionable in the 18th century to have "themed"

rooms like this in palaces and to fill them with art and curiosities from the chosen country. The room was renovated up

to today's standards and received a wood floor. The decorative, historic tile stove completes the elegant setting.

The Conference Center Laxenburg (located in

Vienna-Laxenburg) combines imperial elegance with

a comfortable atmosphere and a modern touch.

Extraordinary conferences can be organized in an

exclusive atmosphere, where once Empress Maria

Theresia and her court enjoyed theater performances

and culinary delights and where the Habsburgs

celebrated their numerous occasions. Even the

generals held their conferences in today's state and

function rooms. Important decisions regarding

Europe's history have been pronounced here. The

Palace Theater and the dining wing were built in

1753, following designs by Nicolo Pacassi. The dining

wing is located where the former Sinzendorf house

stood and belonged to the Imperial family from

around 1756 onwards. Inside, the "Ovaler Saal" (Oval

Hall) has an impressive ceiling fresco by Vinzenz

Fischer showing "putti hunting with falcons" and the

walls have architectural paintings. With the

renovation of the derelict palace in 1980 by the

Republic of Austria and the provinces of Vienna and

Lower Austria, the theater was turned into a unique

conference center. The facade facing the park

entrance has a high portico with curved gable and its

walls are partially decorated with sunk panels as well

as raised panels. Inside, some paintings of illusionist

architecture in the auditorium remain from the late

Baroque period. In Maria Theresia’s time many

people from Emperors to simple folk, came to

Laxenburg Palace in order to meet or take part in

events. For centuries, along with Schönbrunn and the

Hofburg, Laxenburg was the most important domicile

of the Habsburgs. The Conference Center Laxenburg

has been fully renovated and appears in a new light

since 2008.

Services Available to Planners

A flexible and dynamic team can support you in the

organisation of the event. State-of-the-art technology

upon request. We co-operate with different high-quality

catering companies in order to make your event a

tremendous culinary success.

and her court enjoyed theater performances, was turned
