Vienna’s tourism industry has just experienced its best ever year, recoding 13.5 million visitor overnights. This is some 6.3 per cent higher than in 2013, and represents a new all-time high. A total of 6,211,000 arrivals were recorded, an increase of 6.4 per cent.
The Kunstkammer Wien at the Kunsthistorisches Museum is due to reopen to the public on March 1, 2013. The collection – one of the world’s most important surviving “cabinets of curiosities” – will soon be on show in superbly renovated surroundings.
Vienna’s excellent public transportation network is just one of the environmentally friendly ways to explore the capital. There are other options besides the bus, tram and subway – the city’s Green Taxis, Citybikes and Faxis are all great ways to get around with a clear conscience!
