Allocate plenty of time for shopping in Vienna. Shop for Austrian delights and regional specialties in Judengasse. Make sure you pick up some Austrian-made souvenirs – you’ll find jams, chutneys, wine and more. Absorb the atmosphere and diversity of Brunnenmarkt, the largest street market in Vienna or pick up beautifully packaged chocolates and brightly coloured macaroons at Oberlass.
From spectacular palaces to fascinating museums and ancient churches. Head to the MuseumsQuartier, a remarkable collection of museums, cafes, restaurants and bars. Set inside former imperial stables – it is now the heart of Viennese culture. The world-famous opera house is a ‘must see’, whether you participate in a guided tour or attend one of the breathtaking performances.
Sample delicious Austrian fare in Amerlingbeisl. Set amongst cobblestone streets and quirky shops this charming restaurant is great in summer – when the roof slides back to create a lovely outdoor feel. The diversity of Vienna eateries will satisfy every taste and budget – from New York style brunch at the Breakfast Club to authentically rural cuisine at Stomach and the simplicity of Chang Asian Noodles in Waaggasse.
From pulsating nightclubs to sophisticated wine bars and cafes that transform when the sun goes down – you’ll be spoilt for choice in Vienna. Watch the expert bartenders ‘shake it up’ at stylish Eberts Cocktail Bar – a modern setting with funky jazz music. Arena, a former slaughter house turned music venue is one of the quirkier places to see live acts, while Artis International has six small cinemas in the heart of the Inner Stadt.
