Friendship City Introduction
Vienna, capital of the Republic of Austria, also known as the “City of Music”, where famous musicians such as Beethoven and Mozart wrote some of their best pieces. Even now, it is an internationally well-known rist destination.
Fuchu City tied-up with the Hernals district in Vienna in August 1992 to become friendship cities. Since then, a deep and meaningful relationship was nurtured, promoting various types of exchanges. The Hernals district is located to the west-north-west direction from central Vienna, and is the 17th district out of the 23 districts Vienna has. It has a population of around 56 thousand people. The eastern part is a bustling trade town while the central part is a residential district and the western part consists of vineyards stretching to Vienna’s forests. In front of the district office in the eastern part is a statute commemorating the birthplace of “Schrammel”, a type of Vienna music for the common people.
Furthermore, "Neuwaldegg", an 18th century castle with a fabulous English-style garden, still stands within the forest of Vienna, while theaters that are more than 100 years old are still bustling with audiences in the town area. A new breath fostered by nature and history can be felt all throughout the city.
Near to the central part of Vienna symbolized by St. Stephansdom, and with a forest and greenery area amounting to 40% of the district’s total area, the Hernals district is also a well-known attraction as a summer resort.
