Hearty Vienna

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.

Chic Vienna

Typical Viennese dinner at the restaurant Skopik & Lohn  with a good glass of Austrian wine. A concert in the large Musikverein hall in the Musikvereinshaus.

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.

Schloss Schönbrunn by Daniel Heinrich

Must see
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).


Selfie Spot
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.
Viennese hustle and bustle on Mariahilferstraße


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.
