The city was nearly completely destroyed in World War II, therefore there are not many historic buildings left. Traditionally Wiener Neustadt is an industrial suburban town. It's also a commercial center for the surrounding area. There are many schools, among them the primary military academy of Austria. For travellers the city might be a starting point to explore the southern parts of Greater Vienna: to the west there are the foothills of the alps, to the east Neusiedler See and Hungary are not far away, and to the north central Vienna.
By rail: Frequent suburban trains run from Wien Mitte station in central Vienna on the S6 (via Ebenfurth) and S9 (via Baden) routes, reaching Wiener Neustadt in 75-80 min.
By car: Südautobahn, within 40 minutes from Vienna or 2 hrs from Graz. From Hungary 30 minutes.
Friday or Saturday night go to Herrengasse close to the city centre. There are many bars and sometimes fun nightlife.
Go swimming at Aqua Nova and or play Paintball on the outskirts of the city. The paintball field is one of the most modern in all Austria. Contact: www.paintball.at
