The Vienna Congress of 1814/15 was a major event, attended by monarchs, diplomats and lobbyists, but also by adventure seekers, dancers and actors to represent their interests, to do business or to enjoy themselves. It provided the opportunity to compose pieces of music and to create many works of fine art, so that it has remained alive in the collective memory until today. The reorganization of Europe agreed at the congress had lasted for half a century. The 34 authors from ten countries analyse the Vienna Congress and its consequences. Both the internationality and the interdisciplinary nature of the research offer new perspectives on the event that changed Europe and the world forever.
