Prosperity and safety, a large international community, first-rate infrastructure and an abundance of green spaces make Vienna the world’s ‘Most Liveable City’.
As a business environment, Vienna enjoys many advantages, from its progressive attitude towards commerce to the vibrant international community.
Its geographical location is great for those looking to access or expand into both the western and eastern European markets. Excellent transport links and extensive rail and road connections to numerous key cities such as Munich, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava mean international travel is a breeze. Plus, every European capital but Bratislava and Ljubljana (both easily reachable via road or rail) is a plane journey of under 3 hours away from the international airport. Aside from the obvious benefits to commerce and trade, this is invaluable to expats with family and friends abroad.
