THIS SITE covers a short walking tour of Vienna which is the capital of the Republic of Austria and also one of the nine states of Austria. It is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.7 million (2.3 million within the metropolitan area), and is its cultural, economic, and political centre.

Vienna is host to many major international organizations such as the United Nations and OPEC. Vienna lies in the east of Austria and is close to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, in 2005, an Economist Intelligence Unit study of 127 world cities ranked it first equal with Vancouver for quality of life.

The tour group, centred in Weyrigg, travelled to Vienna as part of a 'Travelsphere (UK)' ten day programme in June 2009. The group dispersed on its arrival in Vienna in order for individual members to pursue his or her own particular interests. This is a photographic record compiled by one of the members !
