Kegelgasse 36-38, 1030 Wien, Austria
Friedensreich Hundertwasser's design is quite the departure from the refined elegance of the city's most notable attractions. That's not to say, however, that it's not a masterpiece. This 1985 apartment block with a colorfully eclectic mix of...
Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien, Austria
With the MuseumsQuartier, local architecture firm Ortner & Ortner has helped create a living room for Vienna, complete with coffee-table art books in the form of two museums that complement each other. The white Leopold Museum is home to the world...
Gumpendorfer Str. 11, 1060 Wien, Austria
Viennese coffee culture is world-famous. Try your hand at ordering a coffee in the historic Café Sperl (founded in 1880). Sugar junkies will enjoy an "intermezzo" a concoction combining coffee, chocolate and whipped cream, while traditionalists...
Singerstraße 1, 1010 Wien, Austria
In 1913 Rosa and Josef Prousek opened AIDA in Vienna's 9th district and today there are dozens of them throughout the city. While a franchise doesn't typically seem so appealing, AIDA is an exception. The AIDA at Stephansplatz, right beside the...
Philharmoniker Str. 4, 1010 Wien, Austria
Café Sacher is an obvious highlight on anyone’s travel itinerary in Vienna. But don’t be fooled, despite its international fame and success, your experience at Sacher will be one-of-a-kind. The Café and Hotel were founded over a century ago and...
Nussdorf, Vienna, Austria
When Beethoven lived in Heiligenstadt––a former town since swallowed up by Vienna––he often took walks along what's now known as Beethovengang. Those interested in a respite from the crowded city centre can hop aboard the D tram (a veritable tour...
Bellariastraße, 1010 Wien, Austria
A delight for music lovers, with live opera singing every Monday evening, this well-established Viennese cafe is very popular with music lovers from around the world. Bellaria Café is the place to be on a Monday night. Professional opera singers...
Herrengasse 14, 1010 Wien, Austria
The identity of a Viennese intellectual was ultimately defined by the coffeehouse they would frequent. Sigmund Freud, Arthur Schnitzler and Hugo von Hoffmannsthal would all brood over their work and agitatedly exchange ideas with fellow thinkers...
Wollzeile 10, 1010 Wien, Austria
The food and coffee are great but, …wait till you venture in to use the toilet. The door is clear glass until you close it and then it turns cloudy and a sign says “no entry” on the door. They are located near the Stephansdom at Wollzeile 10, 1010...
Kohlmarkt 14, 1010 Wien, Austria
Austria is known for its coffee, pastries, cakes, and tortes—and Demel is a lovely place to take it all in. It's a two-story cafe and confectionary, decorated with pastel colors on the walls, crystal chandeliers, and little marble-topped tables....
Prinz Eugen-Straße vor, 1040 Wien, Austria
Between the upper and lower Belvedere palaces sits this immense garden. Filled with greenery, statues, and fountains, it seems like too much to really enjoy. Perhaps my taste in cozy Mediterranean gardens that are more or less places to "hide"...
Philharmoniker Str. 2, 1010 Wien, Austria
This beautiful Neo-Renaissance building was opened in 1869 to a mixed public review, but today it's well-loved by the Viennese and tourists alike. I did not get a chance to go inside, but caught a photo as we walked by. I can only imagine what it...
Schönbrunner Schloßstraße 47, 1130 Wien, Austria
Took a walk over the summer palace grounds in the heart of the Habsburg empire. Schonbrunn Palace is beautiful, and on a nice day you can take a free city bike and bike twenty minutes out there like we did. Read more:...
Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien, Austria
It might seem strange at first that Viennese locals would go to the MuseumsQuartier without any intention of setting foot in one of the nine museums. While culture buffs are regulars at the galleries and exhibition spaces, they also might come...
Simmeringer Hauptstraße 234, 1110 Wien, Austria
Vienna’s Central Cemetery is a storied place where great names like Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss can be found on the headstones. Over 3 Million people lie interred here, making it the cemetery with most interred world-wide. The many small...
