Sarah's Insider Tips

Night owl Sarah about Vienna's curious museums and green hills in the big city.

Only in Vienna ...
Vienna and its fascination of death: To get a better impression visit the Capuchin Crypt, the Torture Museum, the Funeral Museum and Central Cemetery, the Pathology Museum and the Crime Museum!

Better elsewhere
The Ocean is missing ...

Your Vice

Sweet Vienna
Coffee and cake, preferable the vegan cakes at Konditorei Bienchen or Café Siebenstern. Mannerschnitten or gingerbread from Pirker - both shops are located directly next to St. Stephans Cathedral.

Savory Vienna
Breakfast at Propeller, Café Espresso or Cafe Ulrich. At lunchtime or in the evening preferably at Café Harvest, Tata, Maschu Maschu or Santos.


Chic Vienna
A visit to the theater or the opera. Or a walk through the first district of Vienna with a glass of wine.


When its getting dark
In summer to one of the countless open-air concerts, cinemas or just a drink at the Danube Canal. In the winter for the best punch (ginger-apricot) at Amerlinghaus.


Not in any tourist guide
The Vienna city hiking trails (“Stadtwanderwege”): Perfect for getting to know the outer districts and often with great photo spots. City tour with former homeless people and refugees, e.g. with shades tours. Breitenseer Lichtspiele – Vienna's oldest cinema.


Your favourite spot
Schafbergwiese – especially during the warmer months with a great view of Vienna. “Rad- und Wandertreff” on the Danube Island (best reached by bike)

Not to be missed
Vienna has some great and unusual museums - the Esperanto Museum, the Globe Museum, the Chimney Sweeper Museum, the Clown and Circus Museum, the Coffee Museum, the Condom Museum, the Toilet Museum, the Shoe Museum and many many more!

Selfie Spot
At Kahlenberg or Hermannskogel (best view of Vienna).

Can be missed, despite being found in tourists guides
The Zoo and rides with the Fiaker carriages.

Finally: What do you love about Vienna?
The diversity, different cultures, tradition next to modernity. The (Blue) Danube with Donauinsel and green hills as part of the city.
