They had no children. The InterCityExpress or ICE is a type of high-speed train operated by Deutsche Bahn in Germany and large cities in neighbouring countries, such as Zurich, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. The rail network throughout Germany is extensive and provides excellent services in most areas. On regular lines, at least one train every two hours will call even in the smallest of villages.

Rigas Feraios, the first revolutionary to envision an independent Greek state, published a series of documents relating to Greek independence, including but not limited to a national anthem and the first detailed map of Greece, in Vienna. He was later assassinated by the Ottoman authorities in 1798. Other influential figures include Adamantios Korais and Anthimos Gazis. Both countries have had diplomatic relation since the 19th century, after Greece's independence. Greece has an embassy in Vienna and an honorary consulate in Salzburg. Austria has an embassy in Athens and six honorary consulates (in Heraklion, Hermoupolis, Korfu, Patras, Rhodos and Thessaloniki). Both countries are full members of the European Union. There is also a Greek community living in Austria. * List of bilateral treaties between both countries: Austria Ministry of Foreign Affairs (in German only) On 6 October 1868 he entered into partnership with Théophile Seyrig, like Eiffel a graduate of the Ecole Centrale, forming the company Eiffel et Cie. In 1875 Eiffel et Cie were given two important contracts, one for a new terminus (Train station#terminus) for the line from Vienna at Budapest and the other for a bridge over the river Douro in Portugal. Loyrette 1985, p.57 The station in Budapest was an innovative design. The usual pattern for building a railway terminus was to conceal the metal structure behind an elaborate facade: Eiffel's design for Budapest used the metal structure as the centrepiece of the building, flanked on either side by conventional stone and brick-clad structures housing administrative offices. thumb left The Maria Pia Bridge (File:Ponte Maria Pia - Porto.JPG) In 1711, while traveling in northern Europe, the Russian Tsar Peter the Great (Peter I of Russia) stopped in Hanover and met Leibniz, who then took some interest in Russian matters for the rest of his life. In 1712, Leibniz began a two-year residence in Vienna, where he was appointed Imperial Court Councillor to the Habsburgs. On the death of Queen Anne in 1714, Elector George Louis became King George I of Great Britain, under the terms of the 1701 Act of Settlement. Even though Leibniz had done much to bring about this happy event, it was not to be his hour of glory. Despite the intercession of the Princess of Wales, Caroline of Ansbach, George I forbade Leibniz to join him in London until he completed at least one volume of the history of the Brunswick family his father had commissioned nearly 30 years earlier. Moreover, for George I to include Leibniz in his London court would have been deemed insulting to Newton, who was seen as having won the calculus priority dispute and whose standing in British official circles could not have been higher. Finally, his dear friend and defender, the Dowager Electress Sophia, died in 1714. As polymath While making his grand tour of European archives to research the Brunswick family history that he never completed, Leibniz stopped in Vienna between May 1688 and February 1689, where he did much legal and diplomatic work for the Brunswicks. He visited mines, talked with mine engineers, and tried to negotiate export contracts for lead from the ducal mines in the Harz mountains. His proposal that the streets of Vienna be lit with lamps burning rapeseed oil was implemented. During a formal audience with the Austrian Emperor (Holy Roman Emperor) and in subsequent memoranda, he advocated reorganizing the Austrian economy, reforming the coinage of much of central Europe, negotiating a Concordat between the Habsburgs and the Vatican (Holy See), and creating an imperial research library, official archive, and public insurance fund. He wrote and published an important paper on mechanics. In 1822, four years after the production of this work, Rossini married the renowned opera singer Isabella Colbran. In the same year, he moved from Italy to Vienna where his operas were the rage of the audiences. He directed his ''Cenerentola'' in Vienna, where ''Zelmira'' was also performed. After this he returned to Bologna, but an invitation from Prince Metternich to come to Verona and "assist in the general re-establishment of harmony" was too tempting to refuse, and he arrived at the Congress in time for its opening on October 20, 1822. Here he made friends with Chateaubriand (François-René de Chateaubriand) and Dorothea Lieven. death_date Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna

The pilots obeyed the perpetrator's demands to return to Berlin, so that he could negotiate with the local authorities over the renewal of his visa. Back at Berlin Tegel Airport, the McDonnell Douglas MD-87 (McDonnell Douglas MD-80) was stormed by special police forces, and the hijacker was overpowered.

Mlynář wrote the noteworthy political manifesto “Towards a Democratic Political Organization of Society” which was released on 5 May 1968, at the height of the Prague Spring. He also wrote, while in exile in Vienna, an autobiographical account of the Prague Spring and the Warsaw Pact invasion that put an end to it in August, 1968. It was published in an English translation called ''Nightfrost in Prague: The End of Humane Socialism.'' birth_date Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
