In the heart of Europe
The federal capital Vienna is the economic and political center of Austria. In Vienna, tradition, culture and quality of life combine in a unique way with the factors of a top economic center.
Around 200 international companies take advantage of the central position of the city in the middle of Europe and the resulting proximity to the growing markets in Middle and Eastern Europe. For example, Boehringer Ingelheim Austria, Siemens and Eli Lilly use Vienna as the location for their CEE headquarters. The excellent flight connections also support the companies with their CEE activities. Vienna Airport offers more nonstop flights to CEE destinations than any other airport.
In addition to the excellent location, Vienna also offers the benefit of highly qualified workers, high productivity levels, a research and technology-friendly environment and the best quality of life in the world. In combination with stable political and economic framework conditions, Vienna shows its quality as a top economic center.
