The Digital Humanism Summer School will be held at the TU Wien, Austria. For accomodations see further below.
Vienna is the capital of Austria and it is know for its cultural and historical background. Vienna is being regarded as the City of Music, because of its musical luminaries including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and many more. It played an essential role as a leading European music centre, from the great age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century. And Vienna has also a strong scientific tradition, just think of the famous “Wiener Kreis”.
The historic centre of Vienna is rich in architectural ensembles, including Baroque castles and gardens, and the late-19th-century Ringstrasse lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks. Some of the most famous sightseeing points in Vienna are:
- Burgtheater, is considered one of the best theatres in the German-speaking world
- Wiener Musikverein, home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra known across the world for the annual widely broadcast “New Year’s Day Concert”
- The imperial palaces of Hofburg and Schönbrunn
- Rathaus (Town Hall)
- Stephansdom & Stephansplatz (the city center)
