Environmental Science & Technology 2018 Meeting & Hospitality
Neubaugurtel 26-28, 1070
Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and one of Europe's most visited cities. Vienna owes much of its charm and rich history to its splendid location on the banks of the beautiful Danube River. For centuries the gateway between West and East Europe, it was the natural nucleus of the once sprawling Habsburg Empire, and to this day remains Austria's most important commercial and cultural hub. Vienna continues to attract visitors with its many great historic sights, as well as for its busy program of events and entertainment. With an unmistakably cosmopolitan atmosphere, it retains a distinctive charm and flair, an effect accentuated by its fine old architecture, its famous horse-cabs as well as its splendid street-side cafés with their Viennese coffees and treats.
