Word Rap about Vienna


Only in Vienna

A city with wine valleys.

Better elsewhere

Ocen views and the smell of sunscreen at the beach.

Your Vice

The theatre, I can never get enough of it.


Sweet Vienna

To Go: Sweets from the Zuckerlwerkstatt Wien where you can also peak into the production of sweets. Or also a Kardinalschnitte at Konditorei Oberlaa. In summer try the experimental goat cheese ice cream at Eisgreissler - sounds weird but it's great.

Savory Vienna

Breakfast at Clementine im Glashaus, lunch at Mochi and dinner at the boat restaurant Motto am Fluss.

Chic Vienna

Dinner at restaurant Collio with wine pairing from their "small" wine cellar ;-)

When it's getting dark

Cocktails high up in the air at das Loft, then continue the party at U4 Club.


Not in any tourist guide

The graffiti gallery along the danube channel - highly recommended.

Your favourite spot

The "Schanigarten" - Austrian word for pop up terraces of restaurants in summer - at Café Bol with a huuuuuuge cup of Caffe au Lait.


Not to be missed:

The hustle and bustle at the Viennese Naschmarkt and Vienna by night.

Selfie Spot

In front of the graffiti art of the Donaukanal or from up the St. Stephan's cathedral with a stunning view. By night definitely in front of the illuminated Riesenrad - the oldest ferry's wheel of Europe.

Can be missed, despite being found in tourists guides

Guided tour through the Spanish Riding School.

Finally: What do you love about Vienna?

Its diverse people - no culture is being excluded. I am also in love with all the small hidden squares, that make Vienna unique.
