Invitation

VIENNA – IMPERIAL CITY WHERE ANCIENT AND MODERN MEET

Vienna's role, for centuries, as the seat of the Habsburg Empire, is known for its unique Baroque architecture, artistic and musical heritage. Many of the world's most important composers, including Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn lived and performed in this city. This beautiful, romantic city is situated on the banks of the Danube. The outskirt of Vienna extends into the foothills of the “Vienna Woods”, where wine taverns and picturesque villages merge with vineyards and forests.

This escorted journey to Vienna, Austria will offer you the opportunity to participate in the International Aids Conference and to explore the culture, sites and flavors of Vienna. If you will not participate in the Aids Conference you may take excursions to other cities in Austria or to neighboring countries on your own.

Due to the Conference, flights to Vienna and rooms in hotels are in very high demand. Therefore, we urge you to sign up for the tour no later than November 1, 2009.

* Please note on the Registration Form an option to take only the flights and hotel in Vienna. The dates of this option are July 16 – 25 instead of July 16 – 26.
