A Wedding in Vienna has an old world charm that is unmatched: this beautiful city remains exquisite and colonial with its artistic history. Although known around the world for that rich history and its imperial palaces, a primary factor that makes Vienna a very interesting destination for international weddings, are the amazing hotels and the great flight connectivity to the world.

Organize a wedding here is quite easy: Vienna is centrally located in Europe and easily accessible. This capital has the right mix of culture, diversity, and modernity. Guests will find excellent infrastructure and suppliers and it is a safe haven for travelers.

Vienna was named the world’s most livable city for the seventh consecutive year by global consulting firm Mercer in 2016. Thanks to its compact structure, Vienna is particularly pedestrian friendly and you can walk to the major sights. It’s beautiful parks, such as those lining the Ringstrasse Boulevard, are ideal for whiling away the hours surrounded by greenery. The city is very easy to get around, arcade lined especially with public transportation.
Vienna is enchantingly romantic-the narrow cobbles to arcade lined courtyards and time-honoured palaces enable a brush with the past, like Palais Ferstel, location of this amazing wedding. Unlike many other palaces in the Austrian capital Palais Ferstel is not named after its owner, with that honour going instead to its architect. Otherwise it would have ended up being known as the national bank or the stock exchange building, in recognition of the roles originally intended for this opulent structure built by Heinrich von Ferstel.

Be that as it may, Palais Ferstel continues to cast its magic on guests at meetings and parties alike, with its fantastic Venetian-cum-Florentine-cum-Trecento architecture, something you won’t find anywhere else in the capital. With stunning rooms, dazzling chandeliers and an impressive colonnaded courtyard. An Italian Palazzo – in the heart of Vienna’s historic first district, on Freyung.

Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a
sunless garden when
the flowers are dead.

Oscar Wilde
