The most important contact point for first-hand information is the Instagram account of the City of Vienna. With the motto and the hashtag #wienliebe (literally, #lovevienna), the page focuses on the most beautiful locations in the Danube metropolis. Almost every day, a photo of Vienna from one of the city’s 23 districts is presented. In addition, there are also Instagram stories from Vienna and videos are posted on a regular basis on Instagram TV (IGTV).

Every city has its museums and Vienna is no exception. The Wien Museum at Karlsplatz will provide you with all you need to know about the city of Vienna, from both a historical and contemporary perspective. And of course, you can also find the Museum on Instagram. A wide variety of topics and subjects are presented to the almost 16,000 followers: postings on the architecture of the city as well as historical shots and photos documenting the current development of the city. Because the Wien Museum is currently being renovated and is, therefore, closed, its Instagram page offers a great opportunity to keep up to date.

Schönbrunn Palace is one of the greatest tourist attractions in Austria. Hardly surprising when any visitor to Vienna has the chance to marvel at the Habsburg Palace, the world-famous Zoo, as well as the impressive Palace Park – and of course, also on Instagram. Schönbrunn Palace has its own official page where you are given the opportunity to view the interior of the Palace, for example, the paintings which hang in the Palace and the living quarters of Austrian emperors and empresses. But outside views are also shown: wonderful views of the Palace Park, the Gloriette, and the Palace itself are presented.
