Our 24 Hours in Vienna

Brunch is a big issue – because of course, life begins after coffee!
That’s why a lavish breakfast with friends is a must on the weekends and our favourite spot to hang out for hours on end is The Guesthouse Vienna. It is located right at the heart of Vienna’s first district and is the perfect spot to start a beautiful day in the city. We highly recommend trying the Eggs Benedict – they are absolutely delicious, as is their homemade Bircher Müsli.

Take a walk in the Burggarten afterwards and enjoy the scenery or have a drink at Palmenhaus. It’s only a short walk from The Guesthouse and enjoying summer in one of Vienna’s pretty parks is simply the best.

Head back into the inner city, take a stroll along Kärntner Straße, Graben and the surrounding little streets. If you are a fan of high fashion, have a look into the so called “Goldenes Quartier” where all of the best luxury designers and labels are situated. There you can also find Lederleitner Home, an amazing interior shop with a curated selection of the most beautiful home décor. But keep in mind that it is no easy task to leave the store without bringing along a little souvenir.

Head straight on through the first district and walk down to Donaukanal, where everyone loves to hang out during summer. Bars and pop-up restaurants line the canal. It is a great place to spend some time outside or watch live bands occasionally. Our go-to spot is Tel Aviv Beach, a place with real sand, beach vibes and delicious Israeli and Mediterranean food that instantly makes you feel like you are on vacation.

If you’re partial to cakes and sweets, try the Oreo cake at Motto am Fluss, right on the opposite side of Tel Aviv Beach, located on a stationary ship on the river (another favourite breakfast destination as well).

For lunch on the go, we can recommend stopping by Omk on Praterstraße for the legendary spicy salmon roll and baby spinach salad!

End your day with drinks at Sofitel’s Loft, a restaurant and bar overlooking all of Vienna, or at the Dachboden, the rooftop bar of the 25hours Hotel (yes, 25!), for a more casual atmosphere – check out these spots at night, when the city’s lights are up and both locations dazzle with an incredible view!

Our thoughts about Vienna

What do you love about your destination?

Vienna is perfect for everyone – literally. It has so much to offer for young people, without neglecting its cultural and historic background. Are you a foodie? The restaurant scene is great. Do you love music? Try a concert at the opera. Are you into history? Visit one of the many museums. Are you just looking for a good time? Take a stroll through the city and let yourself be enticed by all the beauty around you.

What‘s a "must do" in your destination?

Go through the city with open eyes and always look up! The most beautiful buildings are lined up along the Ring, which is a street enclosing the first district. If you take a walk around, you’ll basically cross all of the most important sights like the imperial theatre, city hall, old university and many more!

Ever since then, we’ve been writing and creating together and sharing our passion with young women across all German speaking countries of Europe on a daily basis, as well as assisting companies who are looking for a bit of help when it comes to their social media presence.

What is the best moment of the day?

When we have our first coffee – preferably together at the office!
