Vienna Tips from
Kristin Schmoll

The tough bartender on Vienna's most beautiful contrasts.

Only in Vienna ...

Grumpy Viennese who surprisingly turn out to be friendly.

Better elsewhere

Winter and the mountains (I ❤️ Tyrolean mountains).

Your Vice
Espresso. At any little spot that catches my eye.

Sweet Vienna
The traditional Viennese café Sperl in the 6th district, and the French Café Parémi in the 1st district.

Savory Vienna

Vegan-Vietnamese at Vevi around the corner from the hotel, and traditional Austrian at Brandauer in the 13th district.

Chic Vienna
Steaks at Door No. 8, fine dining at Mraz and Sohn, and Japanese at Shiki.


When it's getting dark...

...marvel at the many colorful lights while strolling through the Prater.

Not in any tourist guide...

...how wonderfully quiet it is in Vienna's small parks.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum.

Selfie Spot

The entire park at Schönbrunn, especially the Gloriette and the Palm House.

Can skip, even if it's in the guide

A horse-drawn carriage ride. With public transport or on foot, you can get anywhere in Vienna without a horse.
