Vienna center

Vienna center

Vienna is not a city of skyscrapers. Currently (early 2006) around 100 buildings top the 40 m mark. The number of high-rise buildings is kept low by building legislation to preserve areas of unspoiled nature and to preserve city districts declared as world cultural heritage. Therefore strong rules apply to planning, authorization and construction of high-rise buildings, and as a consequence, some parts of Vienna, in particular the inner districts, are declared as highrise free zones.
