The innkeeper about the world's best water and the longing for a wilder nightlife
What do you like about the area? What is your relation to the 7th district?
I was virtually born in Mondscheingasse and so I spent my whole childhood and adolescence in the 7th district. Every corner tells bits of my story.
But my inn is in the 4th district, near Naschmarkt.
What can one buy in your store? What is your passion behind it?
I grew up in a family of chefs, so I am trying to preserve and pass on the flavors of my childhood. Besides a lot of classical Viennese recipes we offer different dumplings. I also hold cooking classes where one can learn the art of making dumplings.
Word Rap about Vienna
Only in Vienna:
It's grumpy and charming at the same time ;-)
In any case, we have the world's best drinking water.
Better somewhere else:
That's difficult, since I wouldn't want to live anywhere else but in Vienna. But there could be a wilder and more versatile nightlife.
The old pastry shop Sluka near the City Hall - as a child I used to be treated with an ice cream after visiting the dentist.
Not in any tourist guide:
The look-out on Wilhelminenberg with an outstanding view over Vienna and the Wienerwald. The hike up there really pays off.
Your most favorite place:
The Wiener Eislaufverein - the largest and oldest ice-skating rink in Vienna - on Sunday morning.
The Museum of Natural History.
You can skip, although in the guide?
The tourist bus-lines. It's much nicer to ride along the Ring on a tram.
What do you love about the city?
Vienna is a metropolis, but it seems like time is running with a lower pace. I am especially for of the "Wiener Gemütlichkeit".
