missionMETROPOLE is a young, independent media company founded in October 2015, determined to serve the best of Vienna and Austria to English-speaking expats and internationals. We want our readers to draw on everything Vienna has to offer – in their career, as well as their free time.

Every issue turns the spotlight to one main subject, examining it from different angles to give the full picture. Learn about what moved Austria in the past, and what moves it today. Get acquainted with local culture and people. Equipped with our event and location tips, boredom and loneliness don’t stand a chance. Move about the city as if you grew up here with our column My Home is My Grätzl. Meet other readers, entrepreneurs and international influencers at one of our events to connect and exchange ideas.

We aim for young Austrians to improve their spoken and written English skills, to prepare them for life in the growing international community. With our Education Subscription, teachers get the METROPOLE issue and a lesson plan for English class delivered to the classroom every month.

METROPOLE appears monthly, with double issues for December and January and July and August. We offer print, as well as digital subscriptions. For ideal accessibility, choose our combined print and digital subscription. That way, if you can’t finish an article at breakfast, continue reading on your smartphone or tablet on the way to work.
