Wien erleben im Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna

Only in Vienna
If you wish, you can already make your way up to the "Himmel" - a touch of heaven indeed:
wonderful views out across Vienna along with a magical atmosphere.

Better elsewhere
365 days of sunshine and swimming in the sea in the morning.

Vegan chocolate ice cream at Vidoni on the Landstrasse.

Sweet Vienna
The best croissant in the city at the Kaffeeküche at the Schottentor, delicious ice cream at the Eisliebe in the greenery of the Wiener Prater, and for a sweet treat in winter, there is nothing better than Eibensteiner's chocolate chestnuts (based on Währingerstrasse, but also at various patisseries city-wide).

Hearty Vienna
You should absolutely go to Tian, home to the finest vegan-vegetarian cuisine, or for a quick snack to the Wiener Deewan - Pakistani pay-as-you-wish. The Salonplafond at MAK with its great Josef Frank interior and courtyard garden in summer is a great place for dinner.

Chic Vienna
"If dogs run free" for a drink, WeBandits for shopping, or simply browse one of the many art shows at a fancy gallery.

After Dark
Take in a live concert! Music fresh off the stage at the Porgy & Bess, WUK, the Arena, the LoopB72... And in summer, open-air concerts at Swell Time in the Volksgarten Pavilion with dancing!

Not in any tourist guides
The authentic Viennese lifestyle in the city's outlying districts and in community housing.

My Favorite Spot
The Donaukanal: Urban Art Gallery, eatery district and outdoor recreation area in one - for walking, play, biking or simply relaxing.

The Leopold Museum, which tells so much about Vienna and Austria, and of course the Art History Museum, for the building alone as well as, of course, the Old Masters within.

Selfie Spot
On the Donaukanal, in front of the most colorful graffiti in the entire city.

Something to skip, even if it's in the guide

The "Original Sachertorte" – there are cakes that are more chocolaty, fluffier, tastier.

In conclusion: What do I love about the city?
The public spaces! Simply set out, keep your eyes peeled, and discover.
