One of the goals of UTB’s Study Abroad in Vienna program is to introduce the student to another culture in the hopes that the student will become familiar with and comfortable experiencing another way of life. To that end, there is plenty of free time built into the students’ schedules, so that they may experience the city on their own terms. No classes are held on the weekends or evenings, and so students are encouraged to take advantage of some of Vienna’s many non-musical attractions, such as the best zoo in Europe, many different art museums, excursions outside the city, and one of the oldest amusement parks in Europe.
