Ulrich, Erich - Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna

What do you like about this area? Why are you in the 7th district?

The vitality and the drive. Everytime an old store or eatery shuts down, something new, innovative and cool takes its place. It is great to watch the area develop and improve.

Which products are you selling? What is the passion behind it?

Our passion is to create food and drinks with a wow factor. Our homemade flatbreads and the breakfast at ULRICH have made it into the New York Times! You certainly have to try them.

ERICH spoils you with seasonal tacos, vegetarian and vegan bowls and, of course, our selection of Gin Tonics.

Only in Vienna

The World cultural heritage: KÄSEKRAINER! – at your favourite Würstelstand.

Better somewhere else

To start a business as a young entrepreneur without going through the bureaucracy madness or jungle of municipal authorities.

Sweet Vienna

VEGANISTA EIS – the best ice cream in the northern hemisphere! My favourites: chocolate brownie/ strawberry-agave/ cookies / Eismarillenknödel

GUERILLA BAKERY: sugar orgasm caused by the „fake Sacher“ or Milchschnitte. So good, it will bring you to your knees.

Hearty Vienna

Sushi at MOCHI

Food at the counter (!) at MIZNON

DIE BURGERMACHER: the „Fleischeslust Burger“!

When it gets dark

TANZCAFE JENSEITS: whenever you feel like dancing!

Always a good vibe: LE TROQUET, run by two French originals

Life sessions at UNGARGRILL: CULT!!

Not in any tourist guide

BERLINER DÖNER at Westbahnstraße/Zieglergasse

For the city’s best Kebab, the bread is homemade on the premises!

Your favorite place

The Sankt Ulrichsplatz:

Sledding in winter

A water slide in summer

Eating a Veganista ice cream cone on the church steps


Beer & (tabletop-) soccer at MORGENSTERN

Chilling in the sun at ERICH & ULRICH


Inhale the spirit of Vienna during a walk from MuseumsQuartier to the St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

You can skip although in the guide book

Naschmarkt on a Saturday. It’s way too crowded.

What do you love about the city?

It’s the combination of the old and the new. On the one hand, an overwhelming history and tradition, on the other hand a young creative crowd and innovation. Both lead to a comfortable tension, that is great to live in.
