Living in Vienna
Vienna is consistently rated as one of the top cities in Europe for quality of life. It is a fun, young city embedded in beautiful old buildings. Vienna is one of the cultural capitals of Europe and has one of the highest standards of living in the world. The Vienna of today is a modern, international metropolis in the heart of Central Europe, a city with a quality lifestyle and an embraceable joy for living.
Vienna is a very lively cultural city, famous for classical as well as modern music, exhibitions, theatre, opera, and café life, to mention but a few. Since Vienna is home to many international organizations, the cultural life is also very enjoyable for non-German speaking people (e.g. English cinemas, theatre, international festivals). The geographical location of Vienna makes it ideal for many kinds of outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking, climbing, cycling and water sports. In addition, the proximity of several other European countries allows weekend escapes abroad. As far as quality of life is concerned, Vienna is one of the safest capitals in the world. Public transport is extremely efficient, but for those that prefer, it is also possible to get everywhere by bike.
With its low rate of crime, superb public transport, and access to beautiful surrounding regions it is easy to see why Vienna is regularly ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. http://www.mercer.com/qualityofliving
