Vienna
Tourism:
Fiaker
Because of Vienna’s historic and cultural prominence (political and economic centre of the Danube Monarchy) and due to its wealth of landmarks, Vienna’s tourism is particularly important. Already in 1883, 200,000 visitors were counted. After the Second World War, Vienna expanded into the centre of Austria’s tourism with its unique cultural features. In 1995, 6064 businesses were active in the catering industry. In 1995, 340 accommodation establishments (thereof 13 5-star-hotels) provided 20,796 rooms with 41,144 guest beds. The number of foreigners staying overnight amounted to 6,111,568 and of natives 938,142 in 1995. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, there was a sudden rise in tourism from the eastern neighbouring states. The number of these primarily day trippers is not reflected in the figures of overnight stays. Typical for city tourism is the short average duration of stay of 2.5 days; in the summer season the bed capacity is working to 52.2%.

Konzerthaus
There are many popular sites associated with composers who lived in Vienna including Beethoven's various residences and grave at Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery) which is the largest cemetery in Vienna and the burial site of many famous people. Mozart has a memorial grave at the Hapsburg gardens and at St. Marx cemetery (where his grave was lost). Vienna's many churches also draw large crowds, the most famous of which are St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Deutschordenskirche, the Jesuitenkirche, the Karlskirche, the Peterskirche, Maria am Gestade, the Minoritenkirche, the Ruprechtskirche, the Schottenkirche and the Votivkirche.

Modern attractions include the Hundertwasserhaus, the United Nations headquarters and the view from the Donauturm.
