Reopening on 8 February


From 8 February 2021, the VWI's archive and library are accessible again. Registration via telephone or e-mail is required since the reading room allows only one person at the same time.

The museum can be accessed by a maximum of two people at the same time. In all cases a FFP2-mask is mandatory and also the minimum distance of two metres has to be guaranteed.

The institute can be reached by telephone from Monday to Friday 10:00-16:00: +43-1-890-15-14

Book Presentations


The VWI provides the opportunity to present various new publications (ranging from relevant professional literature to popular works of scholarship to literature) in a special context. These presentations usually combine a special location chosen for this event with appropriate musical accompaniment, selected to reflect each given publication.


Additionally, the VWI repeatedly presents scholarly projects that are either based directly at the institute itself or are being conducted in co-operation with other institutions. External projects that suit the institute's profile are also presented to the broader public here.
