Millennium City in Vienna is one of the most modern shopping centers in the city, located next to the Danube river…with Millennium Tower skyscraper as one of the highlights.
The shopping center has been among the city’s most popular malls (for locals and tourists alike) ever since it was opened to customers back in 1999.
In addition to being a shopping center, the place includes an entertainment center, offices, and residential sections…
…especially within the Millennium Tower.

All in all, the shopping center, at 50,000 square meters (538,000 sq.ft) in size, and with over 100 stores to choose from, is enjoyed annually by about 13 million visitors.
The center is a “city within a city“, meaning, that you can find all the vital services and products for everyday living here.
Part of the shopping center is also its 202 meter (663 ft) tall ‘Millennium Tower‘ — the tallest office tower in Austria.
