Vienna, one of Europe’s most magnificent capitals, is our home base. We hike the Austrian Alps and explore the Danube River and Austria’s stunningly beautiful winegrowing region. Gateway to Eastern Europe, Vienna saw epic battles between Christians and Muslims as Ottoman Turks advanced west. Mozart and Beethoven composed in Vienna, a musical capital home to more classical composers than any other city. Sigmund Freud and Gustav Klimt made Vienna the birthplace of “modernity” around 1900. For centuries a center of Jewish culture, Vienna saw the destruction of its flourishing Jewish community after Nazi annexation in 1938. We visit Austria’s most notorious concentration camp, Mauthausen. In the Cold War, Vienna, officially “neutral,” became a United Nations headquarter—and a hotbed of international espionage. With the fall of the iron curtain, it is again a meeting point between East and West.
