Vienna not only boasts a number of historical personalities (also known persons) and rulers, but is also the place of birth and residence of many famous people today. As the capital, it still attracts actors, musicians and other artists. But even politicians live and work thanks to the political center in Vienna.
Empress Elisabeth lived together with Franz Josef in Vienna and so it is no wonder that Romy Schneider, who made the Empress world famous again with the “Sissi” films, was also a Viennese. Just as internationally known is Christoph Waltz, who became famous through American productions and was twice awarded the Oscar for his roles.
Even musicians like Falco and Senta Berger are citizens of the city. The list can be extended arbitrarily and if you believe the trend, some celebrities will come in the next few years. On these pages some well-known persons and their life’s work are presented.
