This interactive seminar will present the highlights of Vienna, the former capital of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Vienna, Austria offers travelers an incredible array of world-class museums and beautiful architecture  – and has played host to scores of musical legends in its storied past. Masterful composers such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Johann Strauss, and many others have called Vienna home at one point or another. 

The city’s historical center presents an astonishing concentration of baroque palaces – alternating with hidden courtyards, charming gardens, and beautiful boulevards to promenade. Our discussion will contextualize the major periods of its history, from the Habsburg dynasty through to the 20th century. 

We’ll discover the lasting impact of the Vienna Secession art movement – as well as the Jewish community’s influence on Viennese cuisine, music, literature, and sciences, not to mention their tremendous support of the city’s cultural arts and philanthropic institutions. Vienna’s unique café culture is one of its biggest charms – with a mix of  Hungarian, bohemian and Austrian gastronomies. We’ll learn that in the summertime Vienna’s residents transform the city into one beautiful terrace, with picnic tables and lounges scattered along every block. 

Led by an expert in Music History and Architecture, this seminar will inspire future travel to Vienna and prepare travelers for appreciating the city in Context.
