6st floor Vienna cityscapes

A voyage of discovery trough the centuries

From Jugendstil and Gründerzeit to striking contemporary buildings: Vienna is a city that has grown over the course of centuries, in which new has emerged from the old, where some things were planned and others developed organically.

Modern architecture

From the 1960s, Vienna’s postwar architecture began to set new accents in the city. The UNO City, the United Nations headquarters built in 1979, is one of the city’s most distinctive buildings. The glass Haas House opposite St. Stephen’s Cathedral provoked a huge controversy when it opened – in the meantime, the locals have got accustomed to it and like the way their beloved “Steffl” is reflected in the mirrored windows. The 2000s gave rise to new Viennese architectural landmarks like the MuseumsQuartier or the Donau City.
