Introduction

Allow us to introduce ourselves – the first Austrian Facebook Community City Guide!

We use Facebook to exchange views and discover new things, and the same applies to the city in which we live. We come together in Facebook groups to discuss our shared interests and hobbies. 

We’ve put together this Community City Guide with the help of those who use local Facebook groups relating to Vienna on a regular basis and who are always finding new places to explore. You will receive insights and insider tips on beautiful, exciting locations within the city and can rediscover Vienna from the perspective of the various Facebook groups, all in accordance with the motto: by the community, for the community.

And Vienna has plenty to offer; it was voted the most liveable city in the world in 2019 for the tenth year in a row! Austria’s capital enjoys a high quality of living and boasts many fantastic spots. The picturesque old town of Vienna with the imperial Hofburg and the magnificent Schönbrunn and Belvedere palaces is world famous. Stop for a delicious meal as you walk the city’s unique backdrop – call in at one of the traditional coffee houses for a Viennese melange and a warm apple strudel. Art fans and culture vultures are sure to find plenty to interest them at one of the over 100 museums here. Away from the hustle and bustle, you can relax in the many parks and gardens since Vienna is one of the greenest cities in the world.

Besides the geographical highlights, Vienna is also home to a high number of small and medium-sized companies. They all contribute to Vienna’s high quality of living, whether it’s thanks to their unique product range, their delicious treats or their fantastic atmospheres. We consider it crucial to support these companies so that they can continue in the long term. Part of this includes making it easier for them to go digital as well as providing support to each individual. We’ve put together some tips for companies and private individuals to utilise the range of functions on our platform for the benefit of the many small and medium-sized companies in Vienna.

Whether you’re well versed in Viennese life or you’re discovering Vienna as a tourist, our guide will take you through the lesser-known parts of the city.

We invite you to discover or even rediscover Vienna and walk with us as we find new ways through the city. 

Enjoy your journey of discovery!
