  • OUR VISION

    Cultural Centre Währing

    The Villa

    Our house is also known as the "Kálmán-Villa". The operetta composer Emmerich Kálmán (1882-1953) lived here during his years in Vienna, curating his own musical salon. 

    The beauty and rich heritage of this building inform every aspect of life at Währing: fire-side chats, cultural events, concerts and much more.

    Most events are open to the public. Any proceeds go towards maintaining the building. You can find the program of the cultural centre under ‘Aktuelles’. 
     

  • OUR VISION

    WÄHRING AND OPUS DEI

    Währing is shaped by the spirit of Opus Dei (www.opusdei.at), a prelature of the Roman Catholic Church, which promotes living out Christianity in everyday life. 

    The message of St. Josemaria, our founder, and Opus Dei is to discover a new dimension to our work and everyday life through the Christian faith, living out our duties and activities as a service to God and other people. This also motivates us to strive towards excellence in our chosen fields.

      Student Conference: "Rebuilding together: the strengh of human relationships"

      In the last two years we saw the world pass from full classrooms, concert halls and sports stadiums to the complete isolation of every household on earth. We distanced ourselves from each other in order to protect our health and save lives. Time went by and little by little this separation led us to observe that not everything was well, that we wanted to be with our loved ones, spend time with friends, go for walks or travel to Rome for UNIV. We began to feel the need for the relationships that we had before. Noting their absence led us to ask ourselves profound questions: Why do I need relationships? How do relationships influence our happiness? How do they contribute to our health?
      Join us for the Student Conference 2022 to discuss “Rebuilding Together: the Strength of Human Relations.”
