Vienna one of the safest travel destinations in Europe
Europe is gradually opening its borders. Hotels and flights are also starting up again. All travelers who want to play it safe this year – especially with regard to the cities/countries least affected by COVID-19 – will be in good hands in Vienna. A list has just been published of the 20 safest destinations in Europe that are least affected by COVID-19, have taken sufficient safety precautions, and have appropriate healthcare infrastructure. Vienna is one of few cities to have made it onto this list.
According to the justification of European Best Destinations, Vienna will be visited all year round by travelers "who are looking for a safe and peaceful travel destination. Vienna is often chosen for this reason, which isn't just a feeling but a reality: the crime rate is three times lower than in all other European capitals. With its many parks and environmentally friendly transport, Vienna is one of the cities with the best quality of life in Europe. It is a good compromise for city travelers and nature lovers."
The business magazine "Forbes" has also published a list of the world's 100 safest countries in terms of Covid-19. Austria ranks sixth among the top 10.
Vienna is therefore not only the world's greenest city but also one of the safest cities in Europe.
