Vienna is the first destination in Austria to make it onto TIME Magazine’s list of “World’s Greatest Places.”
Since 2018, TIME Magazine has been selecting a list of the “World’s Greatest Places.” This year, Vienna also made it to the top 50 destinations.
What makes Vienna a top travel destination for TIME Magazine?
In its citation, TIME Magazine praises Vienna as a “classical city, modernized” and highlights those developments that have made the federal capital the world’s most livable city in various rankings. These include, for example, bicycle and pedestrian friendliness, the well-developed public transportation system and the numerous green spaces in Vienna. The Urban Lakeside Aspern is also positively highlighted by TIME Magazine as Europe’s largest urban development project.
Tourism Director Norbert Kettner is delighted with TIME Magazine’s choice: “The fact that Vienna has now also been honored by the renowned U.S. magazine ‘TIME’ for its practiced sustainability is grist to our mill. Sustainable management in ecological, economic and social dimensions is an essential basis for decision-making and a guiding principle for leading Vienna and thus also its Visitor Economy into a successful future that functions in harmony with the environment – and not at its expense. Once again, the international view of Vienna demonstrates the city’s true achievements in sustainability issues particularly well.”
