Filming in Filming on location in Vienna

The Austrian capital city is home to nearly two million people and the wider Vienna Region is among the wealthiest parts of Europe. It’s an international city that hosts one of Europe’s two UN headquarters.

On offer for filmmakers is a blend of impressive architecture dating from the Middle Ages all the way through to the present day. Through a thousand years of modern history the city has gained imperial palaces, magnificent squares and a classical music legacy that reflects the beauty of these buildings.

Vienna’s inherent romance and history have been huge draws for film productions over the years, with high-profile visitors including Fernando Meirelles, Richard Linklater and David Cronenberg for A Dangerous Method.

There are numerous filming incentive schemes, including the Vienna Film Fund and separate programmes available for TV productions as well, while practical support is on hand through the Vienna Film Commission.
