Why go?

This is where sumptuous Habsburg history meets the bright invention of Klimt, Kokoschka and the Secession.

Local hotspot

Cool independent shops stand shoulder to shoulder with bohemian bars in Neubau, district 7.

You probably didn’t know

Like Berlin, Vienna was divided into four Allied zones after World War II, and remained so for ten years until 1955.

Things to do in Vienna

Charlie P’s and Brickmakers Ale & Cider House

The latest trend is for quality food and craft beers in an authentic, pub-like atmosphere. It’s spearheaded by the likes of Charlie P’s in the student quarter and the Brickmakers Ale & Cider House in district 7. Running the kitchen for each is renowned chef Peter Zinter.

Burger de Ville

Pop-up venues and burger vans are also in vogue, such as Burger de Ville, serving high-end grilled meats from a cultish American Airstream by the terrace of the 25hours hotel between the Museumsquartier and district 7.

Prost Mahlzeit

Pool-side dining is the main attraction of Prost Mahlzeit on the Badeschiff boat moored on the Danube Canal, beside the bar vortex of Schweden Platz. The pool opens for 12 hours from 8am. Fish of the day, mussels and roast octopus feature on the menu.

Live music

For live music with an underground vibe, a hub of venues below Josefstädter Straße U-Bahn station provides indie, punk, rap and reggae sounds every night of the week. With no neighbours, and the rattle of the U-Bahn above, bands can crank it up to the max. The first club to open was Chelsea, with B72 and Rhiz now firmly established on the circuit.

Strandbar Herrmann

In summer there’s a lido feel to the bars, clubs and nightspots along the Danube Canal. The Strandbar Herrmann involves cocktails and dancing on the sand, while the sleek Motto Am Fluß, designed like a boat, comprises a café, restaurant and bar/nightspot open until 4am.

Roberto American Bar

Vienna has long excelled in cocktail mixing. Barman Roberto Pavlovic – once of the legendary Loos Bar – has opened his own chic spot in the city centre. Roberto American Bar provides all the classic mixed drinks in intimate, velvet surroundings to a discerning clientele.

Fly to Vienna, catch a concert at Chelsea.

Naschmarkt and Rochusgasse

Tourists flock to the Saturday flea market and snack on foreign food at the Naschmarkt, but locals frequent the regional farmers’ market on Rochusgasse every Friday and Saturday. Stalls of fresh cheeses, meats and vegetables line this pretty square in district 3, where flowers have been sold since the 1700s.

Independent boutiques in district 7

The hub for independent boutiques is district 7. Designer clothes, artisanal jewellery and funky accessories give the shop windows of Neubau a different feel to the rest of Vienna. Local designers have formed an association that provides customised shopping tours on the 7th of each month. They leave from Siebensterngasse 7 at 11am.

Neubaugasse

For a flea market with a local feel, a bazaar of vintage clothes, vinyl records and retro curios go to Neubaugasse in district 7 at the start of the month – though not in summer.

The Viennastore

Souvenir stores are ten-a-penny around the city centre but you’ll find no Chinese-made fridge magnets at The Viennastore. Local artisans have created the wine glasses, coffee cups and iconic knick-knacks that line its shelves, also home to the most imaginative range of books about the Austrian capital.

Prater Amusement Park

Vienna’s most family-friendly destination, the Prater amusement park, has recently installed some modern attractions. So now the mock Mayan flumes of Aqua Gaudi and laser games add to the charming carousels of yesteryear. Near the entrance, the retro ferris wheel now runs until nearly midnight through spring and summer.

The Butterfly House

Hidden among the heavyweight Habsburg sights of the Hofburg, the Butterfly House provides an unusual and affordable diversion. Here you walk from palatial Vienna into the tropical heat of the Amazon, brightly coloured butterflies flying around your head and landing on your sleeves.

The Vienna Technological Museum

Almost every aspect of scientific and industrial development is revealed in an entertaining and often interactive fashion at the vast Vienna Technological Museum near Schönbrunn. Discover where television came from, sit in an Alpine rescue helicopter and hear an early synthesiser. Free for under-19s.
