48h in Vienna - explore AUSTRIA

Hi Pearls,

 

Some weeks ago I spent a beautiful weekend in Vienna. It's only a 4h drive from Munich and so it's very attractive for a weekend trip by car or by train.  Vienna is the capital of Austria and the largest city of Austria. More than 1.8 millon people live in this beautiful city. Vienna belongs to the best ranked cities known for their quality of live & I really can image why, because this city combines a lot.

 

On one hand you have a beautiful city center, which looks like a very old city and makes one to dream of a time where the "kings & queens" were still alive. And on the other hand Vienna offers a high quality and wide range of cultural activities like museums, art, music and really great cafés and restaurants.

 

Where to stay?

 

First you have to decide where you want to stay and how much you want to spent. Vienna is composed in 23 districts and offers many options. The heart of the city is around the "Stephansplatz". I can recommend the Melía Vienna Hotel, which is located in the Donaucity about 7 Minutes away with the train from the city center. The Hotel is within the DC Center, the highest building in Austria and the view from the hotel room is amazing. On the 57th floor you have a great restaurant and lounge, which serves delicous cocktails and food.

The first 24h


Breakfast: Haas & Haas  is located very close to the Stephansdom. Different options and an amazing tea selection.
Sighseeing: Stephansdom with a tour through the catacombs. The old "Naturhistorisches Museum".
Lunch: Cafe Demel. You have try the "Kaiserschmarrn".
Shopping: In the City Center you can find all common shops and also some cute small ones.
Dinner: If you are not a vegetarian you have to visit one of the most famous Restaurants in Vienna -> Figlmüller. Please don't forget to reserve a table in advance if you don't want to wait in the long queue before the entry.
Cocktail: On the top of the Sofitel Hotel is the Restaurant and Bar "Le Loft". The view and the interieur is breathtaking.

The second 24h


Breakfast: The Guesthouse Vienna is close to the Albertina Museum and offers a perfect and delicious breakfast. Egg Amelie is great :).
Sighseeing: Albertina Art Museum with famous drawings in a beautiful building. Atm I can recommend the Edvard Munch Exhibition.
Lunch: Visit the Naschmarkt.Vienna’s best-known market has around 120 market stands and restaurants for a colorful culinary offering.
Something Special: A tour with a horse drawn carriage through the city. It's very romantic and if you listen carefully you learn a lot from the coachman.
Sightseeing: You love Sissi? Visit the Sissi Museum and the imperiator grave. If the weather is great and you prefer fresh air activities, you can also visit the Prater. The Wiener Prater is a large public park in Vienna's 2nd district (Leopoldstadt) and it is the oldest amusement park in the world.
Dinner:The Mini Restaurant and Wine Bar is a perfect combination from Restaurant, Wine Bar, Cocktail Bar,and Smooth Jazz Lounge.

What is your favourite place in Vienna? And now let's get inspiried by some of my fav photos.
All the best,

Amelie
