Wiener Zeitung is an Austrian newspaper. It is one of the oldest, still published newspapers in the world. It is the official publication used by the Government of the Republic of Austria for legally-required announcements, such as company registrations, and was also the official publishing body for laws and executive orders until 2004.
The newspaper, founded in 1703 under the name Wiennerisches Diarium, was considered the official mouthpiece of the Imperial Court due to its being supplied information directly and exclusively by the Court. The paper was published bi-weekly, usually running around eight pages in length. Supplements and other extensive reports were published during war time, mainly about Austria, the Franco-Austrian Alliance, and their mutual enemy Prussia.
Like many papers at the time, Wiennerisches Diarium started out by reporting regional and international news. In addition, it published birth and wedding announcements as well as obituaries of the aristocracy and provided coverage of the imperial court.
As of 2002, Wiener Zeitung was among the four Austrian newspapers of record beside the right-liberal Die Presse, the left-liberal Der Standard and the catholic Salzburger Nachrichten.
