  • 4.6 Park Hyatt Vienna

    Park Hyatt Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “The Park Hyatt Vienna has landed with a splash in a grand former bank just off the tony Kohlmarkt shopping street. It has 143 rooms (of which 35 are suites) that feature a slick but cozy mix of warm wood accents and shimmery fabrics and leather upholstery.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.7 Guesthouse Vienna

    The Guesthouse, Vienna

    Fodors

    “Smack behind the Albertina and the Staatoper, this authentically Austrian boutique hotel is an absolutely delightful addition to the Vienna lodging scene, with fabulous views of the heart of the Innere Stadt.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.5 Hotel Lamee Vienna

    Hotel Lamée, Vienna

    Fodors

    “This lodging is a nod to 1940’s Hollywood. Its muse was the late Austrian film maven and inventor Hedy Lamarr. At the crossroads of kitsch and cool, there is that glossy sheen to nearly every surface, accented by pink crushed velvet chairs and ottomans.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.7 Palais Hansen Kempinski

    Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna

    Frommers

    “Inside a building designed by Theophil Edvard von Hansen for the 1873 World Expo, the lobby appears as a bright atrium, with skylights beaming onto the tasteful lounge area and reflecting off intricate chandeliers. This place is luxurious, but without the Old-World pomp of some of its Ringstrasse peers.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.5 25Hours Hotel Vienna

    25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier, Vienna

    Fodors

    “Artsy, eclectic, and deliriously Bohemian, the clever circus-themed walls by Olaf Hajek are sure to charm. Each room contains extraordinary and exceptionally-illustrated wallpaper of old-time, big top themes by the German artist and deliciously quirky vintage furnishings.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.6 Do&Co Hotel Vienna

    DO&CO Hotel, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “Up-close views of Stephansdom extend from higher-priced rooms at this swanky hotel, and all 43 rooms come with state-of-the-art entertainment systems and multicountry power sockets. Some have in-room Jacuzzis.”

  • 4.2 Hotel am Brillantengrund Vienna

    Hotel am Brillantengrund, Vienna

    New York Times

  • 4.2 Grand Ferdinand Vienna

    Grand Ferdinand Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “Grand Ferdinand, abundant in burgundy leather, parquet flooring and offbeat details like a taxidermy horse, offers gorgeous rooftop vistas. Its 188 rooms range between a grand suite of rich tapestries and a Lobmeyr chandelier to what might be the city’s — if not Europe’s — swankiest dorm rooms with mahogany bunk beds and housekeeping services.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.5 Graetzlhotel Vienna

    Graetzlhotel Karmelitermarkt, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “Where electricians, lamp makers and bakers once plied a trade, the Grätzlhotel has injected new life into Leopoldstadt with ultra-cool interiors courtesy of some of Vienna’s top architects. Just around the corner from Karmelitermarkt, the suites are minimalist and streamlined.”

  • 4.5 Hotel Motto Vienna

    Hotel Motto, Vienna

    CN Traveler

    “This is a lovingly designed, fully homegrown, and very reasonably priced (from $245 per night) hotel that gives guests a vivid insight into contemporary Viennese life while being swooningly infatuated with 1920s Paris. Oh, and the hotel’s ensuite bakery does the softest, flakiest sourdough croissants in town.”

    Featured in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Hotlist.

  • 4.5 Motel One Vienna

    Motel One Staatsoper, Vienna

    New York Times

    Ruby Lissi Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “With a vintage-inspired bar in lieu of reception or concierge, the funky boutique hotel Ruby Lissi lives up to its “lean luxury” motto, offering uncluttered rooms in the heart of the city, just around the corner from Otto Wagner’s striking Postal Savings Bank.”

  • 4.3 Magdas Hotel Vienna

    Magdas Hotel, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “How clever: the Magdas is a hotel making a social difference as here the staff who welcome guests are refugees. The former retirement home turned boutique hotel opened its doors in 2016 and hit the ground running. The rooms are retro cool.”

About Vienna

From its historic coffeehouses, to royal palaces, grand cathedrals, and cobblestoned streets; the city of Vienna has an abundance of things to see and do. The city is home to an endless number of museums, galleries, landmarks and parks that are bound to impress visitors. Its imperial palaces and stately homes are a testament to its rich history, as well as a glimpse into the lives of its former inhabitants. From visiting hidden gardens to taking in a panoramic view from the tower of St. Michael’s Church – here are 10 things you need to see, do and eat when traveling to Vienna.

A traditional coffeehouse visit
From the moment you step into one of the city’s many coffeehouses, you will see where the term “Vienna’s coffee house culture” comes from. While some of them are more modern and offer a wide selection of Austrian food and beverages, others have kept their traditional look, serving only coffee and Viennese sweets. The Sacher Cafe, Café Central, and Café Hawelka are a few of the historic coffeehouses that are worth visiting and are still in operation today. Make sure to try a coffee with whipped cream called a “Kapuziner” and a slice of Sachertorte, a famous Viennese chocolate cake.

Schönbrunn Palace
Vienna is home to many beautiful palaces, including Schönbrunn, the former imperial summer residence of the Habsburg family. The palace is situated in a lush green park, and it is possible to take a walk through its many gardens and admire the view from the Gloriette, a small rotunda. You can also try the Schönbrunn Sound of Music Tour to get a glimpse into the life of the family depicted in the film. The tour includes a visit to the State Apartments, a guided tour of the gardens, and a ride on one of the oldest wooden carousels in the world. You can also visit the Imperial Treasury, a collection of valuable artwork that belonged to the Habsburg family.

Ride the Vienna Ring Tram
For an enjoyable and relaxing view of the city, hop on the Ring Tram, a historic streetcar that takes you around the Ringstrasse boulevard. The boulevard, which is one of Vienna’s most famous landmarks and was built around the turn of the 19th century, is a wide, tree-lined avenue with many important buildings and sites along its path. You can hop off at any point and walk to one of the attractions and then board the tram again to continue your tour. The best part about riding the tram is that it is free, but you can also buy a ticket for a small fee.

You can also take the tram back to the starting point and hop on again to continue your tour.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral
St. Stephen’s Cathedral, also known as the Vienna Cathedral, is one of the city’s most historic landmarks.

The tour takes about 45 minutes and ends with a climb up to the roof of the building, where you can admire the city’s skyline.
