As the birthplace of influential names such as Sigmund Freud, Mozart and Beethoven, Vienna is a cultural hotspot that’s been a popular tourist destination for decades. The historic imperial palaces and classic Austrian theatres embody what’s left of the once-powerful Austrian empire.

Despite being home to almost 1.9 million residents, Vienna has maintained much of its original charm. Today, the city is the perfect place to lose yourself in heritage, ancient architecture and unusual traditions. Tourists flock to visit the many museums, art galleries, historical highlights and authentic Austrian eateries.

The city is visually breathtaking and there are numerous activities on offer to make your team-building retreat unforgettable, many of which are easy to access and close to the city centre. Take the treetop course in Gänsehäufelbad or the state-of-the-art indoor skydiving tunnel, for example.
