Fancy a meeting with a historical figure? Have backstage meetings with professionals in museums, venues or at shows? Dine in the most interesting places? Have fun exploring our fantastic cities? Having a friend here, who will tell you about all that, means: working with an Imperial Connection Team Member!
Imperial Connection was founded in 2002 by Johanna Schmikal and Uli Beck. Uli and Johanna started working in DMC business many, many years ago and got together a team of professional MICE experts with the same attitude: The most important facts for a MICE Agent is to LISTEN, THINK and SERVE – on a personal basis.
The company name was created with a special intention:
Imperial stands for the Imperial Cities of Austria we operate in and Connection stands for the partnership we want to offer: Let us be your direct link to the beautiful and now modern cities of the former “Imperial Empire” of the Habsburgs.
Imperial Connection is a fully licensed DMC, a bit old-fashioned maybe, because we understand that, being a Destination Management Company, you have to MANAGE all touristic services within a DESTINATION. So MICE Business is our main focus, but we also are specialized in group and FIT travel.
With its flag being one of the eldest in existence as well as having a quarter of the population nestled in the capital, Austria is a magical space between mountain and city. The beautiful Alps are picturesque in both summer and winter, providing Christmas wonder as well as scenically beautiful hiking adventures.
Being the buzz of the country, Vienna is the capital to be seen. As Thomas Bernhard once said, Vienna is a little bit too big for Austria… or Austria is a little bit too small for Vienna. The city has cultural events, imperial sights, coffee houses, cosy wine taverns and Viennese charm on the menu – she’s big and she’s beautiful and will entice every fantasy; no wonder Vienna has been named the ‘city with the best quality of life’ 9 times in a row.

Vienna not only has beautiful architectural wonders; in fact, the city centre has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site and has over 100 museums. Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven and Strauss plus many more of the classical musical magicians, were either from Vienna or lived there at some point in their lives making Vienna the capital of classical music. It is still the home of arguably the best Philharmonic orchestra in the world and this coupled with the most beautiful and celebrated concert halls in the world, making it a classical music lover’s dream city.
Austria is the self-proclaimed capital of cake with virtually every street having a bakery; try Apfelstrudel as well as their world famous Sachertorte – a mouthful of rich chocolate. Pairing off these rich indulgences is Wiener Melange, or simply – Viennese coffee, on the savoury front the Wiener schnitzel, which will leave you wanting more.
After a day of exploring the city or countryside alike, to add romance to this experience, one can enjoy a boat ride to Melk on the Danube River. For nocturnal beings, feel free to explore the Vienna Naschmarkt or enjoy exquisite dinners, concerts and dancing till the sunrise.
Austrians are proud of their Schmäh (sense of humour). The people are friendly and naughty, so just roll with the punches and enjoy the harmless banter.
