3rd floor Liveable Vienna

Vienna’s quality of life

A city of green oases

Vienna regularly tops the list of the world’s most liveable cities – a good reason to devote our 3rd floor to the quality of life in the city. Every room reveals something about what Vienna offers its residents and visitors in the way of leisure and recreation.
