Only in Vienna
...we have the best functioning public transport network that I know of. At peak times with 2,5 minute intervals which is very unique.
The temperatures in summer. In Vienna, summer days are almost unbearable with degrees beyond 35°C in the shade.
Sushi and Asian cuisine.
The world famous Sachertorte. But you can skip the one at Hotel Sacher and better enjoy the replica in many of the countless cafés Vienna has to offer.
...the culinary variety. From classic Viennese cuisine to award-winning vegan restaurants.
The city center, illuminated in Christmas time, it's beautiful and chic. But also the hidden alleys of the 1st district are perfect for a stroll off the beaten path.
When it's getting dark
Not to be found in any tourist guide
Room 55 at the Altstadt Vienna. My absolute favorite room. With its 16m2 and bunk bed, it may not be obvious at first glance, but the unique Orient Express design makes the room one of a kind and special for me. Try it!
Your favourite place
Vienna at night. The city is transformed into a completely different, special and magical place.
I am not a selfie person, for me the moment counts much more than the photo. Enjoying the moment is everything!
Can be left out
The hop on / hop off tour to Kahlenberg or Donaucity. Instead go for the red tour, ring tram and a Danube boat trip - maybe even to Bratislava?
Finally: What do you love about the city?
In the run-up to Christmas, the many wonderful Christmas markets. In summer the gorgeous sunsets on mild and long evenings.
