Vienna Insider Tips from
Lea Handschuh

The gleaming receptionist with the city''s most contagious laugh reveals her insider tips for Vienna.

Wien erleben im Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna

Only in Vienna
A city with wine valleys.

Better elsewhere
Ocen views and the smell of sunscreen at the beach.

Your Vice
The theatre, I can never get enough of it.

Sweet Vienna
To Go: Sweets from the Zuckerlwerkstatt Wien where you can also peak into the production of sweets. Or also a Kardinalschnitte at Konditorei Oberlaa. In summer try the experimental goat cheese ice cream at Eisgreissler - sounds weird but it's great.

Savory Vienna
Breakfast at Clementine im Glashaus, lunch at Mochi and dinner at the boat restaurant Motto am Fluss

Chic Vienna
Dinner at bistro Porto with wine pairing from their "small" wine cellar ;-).

When it's getting dark
Cocktails high up in the air at das Loft, then continue the party at U4 Club.

Not in any tourist guide
The graffiti gallery along the danube channel - highly recommended.

Your favourite spot
The "Schanigarten" - Austrian word for pop up terraces of restaurants in summer - at Café Bol with a huuuuuuge cup of Caffe au Lait.

Not to be missed
The hustle and bustle at the Viennese Naschmarkt and Vienna by night.

Selfie Spot
In front of the graffiti art of the Donaukanal or from up the St. Stephan's cathedral with a stunning view. By night definitely in front of the illuminated Riesenrad - the oldest ferry's wheel of Europe.

Can be missed, despite being found in tourists guides
Guided tour through the Spanish Riding School.

Finally: What do you love about Vienna?
Its diverse people - no culture is being excluded. I am also in love with all the small hidden squares, that make Vienna unique.
