From surfing and climbing to bouldering, ice skating and volleyball, our charming host Karl knows where to enjoy sports the most in Vienna. And where to unwind afterwards.
In summer, dinner in the courtyard of the Hotel Brilliantengrund with the best Filipino specialities. Restaurant Bruder always surprises with new and unique creations. The best Falafel in town you get at the Naschmarkt. Miznon is a cosy, good and unusual restaurant in the first district. Disco Volante offers the best pizza in Vienna.
When it gets dark
Stroll through the empty city and enjoy the special flair of the inner city. Even more special at Christmas time with the Christmas lights & punch.
Not mentioned in any tourist guide
Piarist Church - Vienna's most beautiful church in the 7th district
Your favourite place
Schönbrunn Palace and the palace gardens - a must-see at any time of year to escape the big city.
Weingärten - take the D trolley to the Beethovengang stop and start walking (but best not at weekends). The small alleys & passages directly behind St. Stephen's Cathedral let you immerse yourself in old Vienna (Blutgasse, Grünangergasse, Ballgasse).
All of Vienna is so photogenic - every corner offers new perspectives. Just take a stroll and discover. The best view of St. Stephen's Cathedral is from the Lamee Rooftop Terrace.
You can skip it, even though it's in the guide.

Finally: What do you love about the city?
The long and old canyons of houses. That you can reach "almost" everything on foot and always discover new corners, squares and alleyways.
