Vienna, located on the Danube, is the largest and at the same time the oldest university city in the German-speaking and cultural area with around 1.8 million inhabitants and can therefore look back on a long tradition. The capital's universities and colleges offer a wide range of courses and are best known for their medical and artistic studies.

But it's not just the university landscape that makes the city a popular place to study for around 200,000 students, around a quarter of whom come from abroad. In view of the extensive leisure and cultural offerings, the attractive nightlife with countless student bars, the culinary specialties, the Viennese coffee house culture and over 2,000 green spaces, it is not surprising that Vienna has already been named the most livable city nine times in the Mercer study. Vienna has many sights to offer, including the Vienna State Opera, Schönbrunn Palace and St. Stephen's Cathedral on Vienna's Stephansplatz, the Austrian landmark. Austria's largest disco, the Praterdome, is located in the famous Wiener Prater, a city park with a Ferris wheel.
