A french café with a really nice garden area to sit in during summer. Their brunch buffet on the weekend is a winner!
This is the place to be—not only during summer, because in the winter you can go and visit all the great exhibitions.
When you sit here in the summer, you feel as though you’re outside the city although you’re right in the centre of it, because it’s just that green.
This is where the cool kids shop their latest outfits.
They’ve got such a splendid outdoor area and a delicious menu. This is one of my favourite restaurants, to be for sure!
All vegan, all delicious. It’s a good thing the queue so long whenever I come here—gives me time to choose what flavour ice cream I’ll get.
This café is a real all-rounder: meet your tinder date, have coffee or drinks with friends or just sit down and work.
Before I go up to the rooftop bar Dachboden, I love to have on one of their damn fine pizzas. From the rooftop bar Dachboden you have have one of the best views over the city. The interior is also a highlight.
This is the best Heurigen in the city. Their food is very good and the staff is great with customers.
This cool underground club has been an institution in Vienna for more than 30 years now.
A kick-ass venue in summer!
This is the café society in Vienna: long queues and expensive. Still, from time to time they throw really good parties!
The entry fee is dirt cheap and the crowd’s always great, but the music might not always be to your liking, so check the event schedule beforehand.
This is Vienna’s techno and electro hot spot! Great location, right next to the canal, with a large outdoor area. They renovated recently, so it’s better than ever!
One of my favourite booths selling sausage and beer. It’s a little pricey, though.
A typical booth selling sausage and beer, it's ‘ur-wienerisch’ (very typical for Vienna). From the outside it looks rather modest, but it’s definitely a good choice for a midnight or early morning snack.
Many wonderful Heurigen are located here.
Also a few beautiful Heurigen around here. Furthermore, you’ve got a great view of Vienna up on the hill.
A club with a modern design: dark finishes accentuated with shining lustres and golden elements here and there. Chic but still very cool.
Das Werk is close to the club Grelle Forelle, and is a perfect afterhour location. Also a concert venue, movie theater, exhibition space and club rolled into one.
Not a brothel, even if the name would have you think otherwise. I like to come here for very-late-night-early-morning drinks.
My thoughts about Vienna
Even though Vienna is a big city, sometimes it still feels like a village. I love that you can go from one hot spot to the next in no time at all: within 30 minutes I can be at the riverside of the Danube, having a swim, or inside the wilderness of the forest Wienerwald, or having a cup of coffee in the city centre. In my opinion, this is quite unique!
Having a spritzer or beer at the Museumsquartier or next to the canal of the Danube during summertime. Also, look out for events like Spontan Techno—huge open air parties, organised and announced spontaneously (via Facebook). And it’s free!
Take a vacation into My life
I’m actually a real hillbilly. I’m from Upper Austria, more specifically the ‘Salzkammergut’, which is an area about 45 minutes away from Salzburg. For those who don’t know Salzburg: just watch ‘The Sound of Music’. 😉
I moved to Vienna to study, about five years ago. These days, Vienna is the centre of my life in regards to love, work and friends.
In the morning, when I’m sitting on the rooftop terrace of our office, having a ‘Wiener Melange’ (typical Viennese coffee), thinking about which hot spots of Vienna I’m going to present to our community today.
All the start-ups we share our office with. We’re all the same age and we all work in the field of media in one way or another. We motivate and inspire each other a lot!
Reliable and a doer who knows what he wants in life!
Creative, start-up, coffee, beer, late riser.
Since I studied journalism, I’ve been following the media very closely, online and off. It starts with newspapers on a daily basis and ends with specific marketing / social media blogs. On the weekends, reading ‘Die Zeit’ is a regular ritual, and I love turning those big pages. Because I tend to read newspapers and magazines, reading books unfortunately falls by the wayside; but if I do read a book, it’ll probably be a crime or fantasy novel.
Currently, it is the Danish series ‘Borgen’ and the German movie ‘Victoria’.
I’m so tall, I think it’s best if nobody sat next to me.
What a question. Take your backpack and let’s go!
Never hand me a bag of gummi bears, you won’t be able to talk to me for the next half hour. Because then it’ll be only the gummi bears and me! Yum!
the best thing to do in life!
worth living since 1992.
