Experience the city in the "Rhythm of Vienna"
The exciting camera rides in this six-minute film offer a high-speed pan through the variety of all that Vienna has to offer. And does so from totally unusual perspectives. An all-round view is possible at any point during the clip by using the mouse or keyboard, regardless of whether you're “riding along" on the Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater or in a horse-drawn carriage through the Imperial Palace. By the way, it's helpful if you don't suffer from vertigo for the moments captured on the Giant Ferris Wheel by the 360° camera ...
Bars, cafés and restaurants enliven hip locations – and the full-on life in the giant courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier streaks past in time lapse as does life on the urban beach at the Danube Canal. The courtyard dining area is there, as is the heuriger in the vineyards and the obligatory Wienerlied ensemble which has knitted a true-to-style modern song out of an old one.
There's also a kaleidoscope of insights and views - such as a view from the roof of the Burgtheater, from the tower of St. Stephen's Cathedral as well as behind the scenes at the Spanish Riding School with its stables and tack room. Well-known large public squares, such as Karlsplatz and Michaelerplatz, and small squares tucked away in the Old City heave into view. Detours into the nightlife and concert life of the city are also included, as is a visit to the golden monument of Waltz King Johann "Schani" Strauss and a flying visit to the Baroque ceremonial room of the National Library.
The soundtrack of the clip is worthing listening to on its own - with its sound mix of pulsating beats and the legendary Viennese waltz. The film was produced exclusively for the Vienna Tourist Board by DEEP Inc. in cooperation with ORF.
The mouse or keyboard controls the all-round view on the computer. On a smartphone, the video has to be loaded via the YouTube app for optimal presentation – because the integrated sensors then gage the position of the device and the viewing direction is determined by rotating and turning it.
