Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria with a population of about 1.8 million. The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. Vienna is host to many major international organizations, including the United Nations and OPEC.
According to a survey by Mercer, Vienna has been the leading city concerning quality of living for several years in a row, one important aspect was Vienna's status as one of the safest metropolitan areas worldwide. Vienna is also LGTB friendly and proud of it - not only during the yearly Life Ball or recently as the host of the Eurovision Song Contest. Public transport in Vienna as well the conference venue stand out due to high accessibility standards.
Austria’s currency is the Euro (EUR, €). Please consider that changing money at Euro change offices is usually rather expensive compared to withdrawal at a cash machine. Currency exchange offices are to be found at Vienna Airport and at tourist hotspots throughout Vienna.
Credit cards and bank cards are accepted in larger chains and at some smaller shops, we highly recommend to carry some money in cash though.
