Great Wining & Dining in Vienna

Whether chefs from Vienna or from around the world, luxury restaurants, trendy bars, traditional wine taverns, sausage stands or cozy coffee houses:

In Vienna, you will find everything your heart could possibly desire!

The famous Viennese Melange of the coffee house is an expression of the laid-back take on life here in Vienna.  The popular coffee house tradition is one still nurtured by locals and visitors alike.

Viennese Beisln, as well as newer restaurants and pubs, serve up a wonderful combination of traditional and modern.

During the summer months, we highly recommend the numerous restaurants with outdoor seating, a true delight for all your senses! We even have a so-called "Bathing Ship" (with a swimming pool) close by: Enjoy a cool, refreshing dip ... and the Hermann Beach Bar is right there, too, if you ever get hungry or thirsty.

We have done our taste-testing on your behalf and here are our recommendations:
