Maria Theresia


The Rotary Club Vienna Maria Theresia has been established to provide a home for the globally minded Rotarians and their guests here in the city of Vienna with its strong international community. The language of the club is English. Many founding members were graduates of the Diplomatic Academy, and practically all members have very international careers in public service, international organisations, international business or any other global activity.

We have strong ties to the Diplomatic Academy Vienna and the international community.

We invite you to meet Rotary!

Rotary encourages
and fosters:

The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.

The application of the ideal of service in each rotarian’s personal, business, and community life.

High ethical standards in business and professions and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society.

The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
