Austria’s capital, Vienna has attracted as many as 47,465 visitors from India in the first 10 months of 2016, registering a growth of 30.4% over the corresponding period last year. According to Vienna Tourist Board (VTB), Indian tourists accounted for 102,701 overnight stays between January and October 2016, with each visitor clocking an average of 2.16 nights.
“Vienna got an overwhelming response from travellers from India exceeding the target of 100,000 overnight stays for 2016 by Indian tourists in just 10 months,” says Isabella Rauter, Public Relations Manager, Vienna Tourist Board.
Air India’s Delhi-Vienna direct flight also contributed to more Indians flocking to the Austrian capital.
Correspondingly, global tourist flow into Vienna during the first 10 months of 2016 also grew by four percent in overnight stays to 12.45 million and four percent in arrivals to 5.69 million. These figures point to the growing popularity of Vienna, acclaimed as the world’s most liveable city, renowned for its beauty, quaint streets, confectionery, and charming boat rides.
“Indians love to stroll around the fabulously green city, with half its metro area dotted with 2,000 green spaces, 850 parks and 400 species of rose, perhaps unmatched by any other city in the world,” adds Rauter.
Vienna, which is located in the heart of Europe, has the right mix of culture, diversity, and modernity. It’s a multi-dimensional city that appeals to a diverse section of Indian tourists, from young travellers to honeymooners to families.
