The internationally renowned Grafenegg Festival is one of the most important orchestral festivals in Europe. More than 150,000 visitors from all over the world are delighted each year by the top-class classical concerts under the artistic direction of Rudolf Buchbinder.
The open-air stage “Wolkenturm”, the auditorium concert hall and the historic riding school, which is used for prelude concerts and introductory talks, provide a unique combination of “sound & atmosphere” at the Grafenegg cultural location.
Grafenegg offers many highlights in the course of the year: Every year in mid-June, the line-up begins with the star-studded Summer Night Gala.

With a total of eight locations and around four million objects, it is also the largest universal museum in Austria.

For example, we facilitate internships at the museum and support exclusive offers for students. The cooperation offers international guests, partners and employees of OMV the opportunity to experience the extraordinary art collections.
OMV is a partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus
Since its foundation in 1913, the Wiener Konzerthaus has combined tradition and modernity at the highest level. The diverse range of programs includes more than 700 events per season, from classical to jazz, pop and world music, as well as numerous events for children and young people. The four halls of the Wiener Konzerthaus can be used in parallel or together for one event. The magnificent Great Hall can accommodate approximately 2000 visitors.
OMV is a long-standing partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus and will support the cycles "Fridays@7" and "Im Klang" in the 2021/22 season.
With the "Fridays@7" series, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra invites listeners to immerse themselves musically in the weekend shortly after work at the end of the working week. The first part of the evening is spent enjoying a compact program of popular pieces in the Great Hall, followed by another encounter with the musicians in an upbeat concert finale in the Great Foyer.
The "Im Klang" series offers a special musical experience: the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and principal conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada leave their usual place on stage and find themselves spread out on the first floor of the Great Hall. The audience is invited to take a seat between the orchestra musicians.
OMV is a partner of Leopold Museum
With its unique collection of Viennese Modernism, Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism, the Leopold Museum is one of the most popular museums in Vienna. In addition to the most important and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world and masterpieces by Secession founder Gustav Klimt, the museum houses works by Richard Gerstl, Alfred Kubin, Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser and many other exceptional Austrian artists. In 2021, the Leopold Museum will celebrate its 20th anniversary.
In 2021, OMV supports the retrospective "Josef Pillhofer - In a dialogue with Cézanne, Giacometti, Picasso, Rodin ..." as an exclusive partner. In the comprehensive retrospective, the Leopold Museum pays tribute to the extraordinary and Austrian sculptor and draftsman, on the occasion of his 100th birthday. The impressive show will be on view at the Leopold Museum from June 18 to October 10, 2021.
OMV has been a proud partner of the Leopold Museum for many years and has already supported the museum in the past for various exhibitions. Through our cooperation and joint activities, OMV enables special art experiences and would like to promote enthusiasm among all people, but especially among the young target group.
OMV is a partner of Austrian National Library
The Austrian National Library emerged from the former court library, which was commissioned by Emperor Karl VI in the first half of the 18th century. Today, the Austrian National Library is not only the largest library of Austria. Additionally the library also offers permanent presentations and thematically changing exhibitions in the famous state hall and the various individual museums.
In the current season, OMV will be supporting the exhibition “The Emperor's Most Beautiful Animals. Pictures from the Habsburg collections”. In this exhibition, the importance of depictions of exotic animals, as an essential part of the imperial art collection, is examined for the first time. Under Crown Prince Ferdinand, more than 10,000 detailed and lifelike images of mammals and other animal species were created. The extraordinary exhibition can be visited in the State Hall of the Austrian National Library from March 2022.
OMV has been a proud partner of the Austrian National Library for many years and has supported this Austrian cultural institution in various exhibitions, as a book sponsor and in setting up the literature museum. For example in 2020 as sponsor of the exhibition “Beethoven. Menschenwelt und Götterfunken”, which was displayed on the occasion of the 250th birthday of the great composer and pianist.
Sport connects and inspires people! Therefore, we renewed our cooperation as a premium partner with the SK Rapid Wien at the beginning of 2019. In doing so, OMV puts a special focus on the support of young and talented upcoming players from SK Rapid Wien.
In addition, this creates extraordinary synergies that benefit our OMV employees. With games of the Rapids first team, as well as the junior teams against various teams from our association of oil and gas municipality of lower Austria, the sport gets support in the region.
Furthermore, the Special Needs Team is an essential part of support and encouragement of mentally disabled people. The "Special Needs Team" is an inherent part of the Rapid Wien family, which is connected with further social and charitable activities of OMV.
In order to achieve a sustainable effect, long-term partnerships are preferred as well as special projects that we are developing together with our cooperation partners.
