Vienna is one of the four headquarters of the United Nations worldwide. Several UN units have their seats and offices at Vienna International Centre (VIC) or, as locals say, UNO City.
Vienna International Centre is a huge complex of buildings designed specifically for the United Nations offices and built in 1979. It is located in the north-eastern part of Vienna on the left bank of the Danube in the 22th district, Donaustadt (Danube City).
From the centre and most other places in Vienna, it is best to get to the United Nations offices by taking the metro line U1 to the station Kaisermühlen / Vienna International Centre (when going from the city centre, it is the station following after Donauinsel and the bridge over the Danube).
If you are travelling from Schwechat Airport and you don’t want to take a taxi, you can either take the City Airport Train shuttle service to Landstrasse/Wien-Mitte and then the metro line U3 to Stephansplatz, and finally the U1 to Kaisermühlen/VIC. Alternatively, you can take an ordinary S-Bahn train from the airport to Praterstern Train Station, where you transfer to the U1.
If you are driving to Vienna, you will need to get to the left bank of the Danube to highway number A22 (called Donauuferautobahn). When arriving from most directions (including Italy, Graz, Hungary, Bratislava, and Vienna Airport), you can follow the signs to Prague (Praha). Vienna International Centre is very well signed and you should not miss the exit.
Parking is possible in a public garage next to VIC Gate 2.
