United Nations Office at Vienna

Since 1979 Vienna is one of the "United Nations capitals" with about 4000 people from all over the world working for the Vienna based International Organizations such as IAEA, UNIDO or UNODC. In addition, Vienna serves as headquarter also for OSCE or OPEC. As VIMUN 2014 entirely took place at the United Nations Office at Viennna, VIMUN again was perhaps the most authetical MUN world-wide. The UNYSA-AUSTRIA-AFA therefore, thanks the UN Conference Service and especially Ms. Maxine JACOBS for the support. 2014 was not only the year of the 20th VIMUN conference but also the 35th anniversary of the UN seat in Vienna.

Social Programme

Sunday: Welcome Dinner

On Sunday evening participants had the opportunity to visit the traditional Viennese "Heuriger Feuerwehr Wagner". "Heuriger" is the Viennese term for the wine of the last grape harvest. And it is also the name of the places where this wine is served. "Let's go to heuriger" is an invitation that marks the beginning of a sociable evening full of fun. At the Dinner participants enjoyed Viennese cuisine.


Monday: Gala Reception

Monday evening, after the first day of negotiations in the committees, participants were hosted by the Mayor and the City of Vienna in the impressive Vienna City Hall. An official representative of the Viennese Government welcomed the partcipnats. They the possibility to shake a leg and they were invited to Viennese food and beverages.


Tuesday: Intercultural Night

On Tuesday evening, participants experience one of the highlights of VIMUN: The Intercultural Night. In the spirit of VIMUN's internationality, this event provided all particpants with the chance to present their countries to others from their own point of view. The audience learned about various cultures and witness colorful performances including dance, song, and poetry from all parts of the world. Prior to that, participants had a small snack reception. Venue of the evening was "Urania", an observatory as well as an educational institute in the centre of Vienna. It was named after the Muse Urania (who represents astronomy) and fascinates through its glamorous Art Nouveau style of architecture. Events such as screenings of the annual Viennale movie festival and a classical puppet theatre take place at this beautiful sight next to the Wien River.


Wednesday: Clubbing

On last day of the MUN, there was a big party. The "ALLiNCLUB", exclusively reserverd for VIMUN, was a new, very popular and trendy event hotspot. The club is located under two arches, part of the urban rail network, designed by famous architekt Otto WAGNER at the end of the 19th century. An exceptional atmosphere was offered due to the successful fusion of modernity and tradition. It was a great evening!
