What our students said about Vienna

1.0

Rating: 1/5

I think is a city where there is always something to do. Many museums and galleries. And the people are nicer than Germans :). However, I feel the city doesn't have a personality, like it has an artificial aspect of beauty where every neighbourhood feels the same, even the people who live there seems to be the same, no matter the district you are.

FAQ about schools in Vienna

  • Group courses run Monday to Friday, so start day must be a Monday. If this is not possible with your schedule, we can check availability for private lessons with a more flexible time schedule.
    Louise Granath, Area Manager from LanguageCourse.Net - Sep 16, 2022
  • Vienna's transport network is very efficient. There is an underground (U-Bahn), trams, buses and a suburban rail network (Schnellbahn). Tickets are available at ticket offices in the underground stations as well as the Wien Mobil App. There are weekly tickets, monthly tickets, 24 h tickets, and single tickets. We suggest to download the Wien Mobil App as you can purchase your tickets directly in the app but also look up routes from one location to your destination and check for timetables.
