Word Rap about Vienna


Only in Vienna

Viennese wine.

Better elsewhere

The opening hours of shops

Your Vice

Fruit jellies, especially the sour strawberries.


Sweet Vienna

"Buchteln" - oven baked yeast dumplings at Café Hawelka.

Savory Vienna

"Stelze" - pork knuckle at Heuriger Leitner.

Chic Vienna

Turn into the little, fancy Ferstelpassage. My favorite spot there: BEAULIEU Épicerie fine & Bistrot

When it's getting dark

A glass of wine at the Vinothek W-Einkehr.


Not in any tourist guide

That the Viennese are actually not grumpy but really nice people.

Your favourite spot


Everything around the "Alte Donau" - a lake-like arm of the danube.

Not to be missed

The national library.

Selfie Spot

Wilhelminenberg - a little mountain in Vienna with wonderful views.

Can be missed, despite being found in tourists guides

Sacher cake at hotel Sacher.

Finally: What do you love about Vienna?

Everything! Wine, culture and simply strolling through this beautiful city.
