The site houses three Vienna institutions: the world-renowned Vienna Concert Hall, the Hotel InterContinental and the Vienna Skating Club’s skating rink. The competition site covers approx. 15,400 sq m and is situated at a central location between the Stadtpark (City Park) and Karlsplatz at the margin of the core area listed as the World Heritage site of “Vienna’s Inner City”.
