Vienna in 2 days

Vienna Day 1

Start the day with a good breakfast at the rooftop of Haus des Meeres. This is where these photos were taken.

Then go to the city centre and allow yourself to get beautifully lost in the backstreets and little alleyways of Vienna’s beautiful first district.

If you wish to visit the most crowded streets, these are Graben, Kohlmarkt and Kärntnerstrasse.

Afterwards, check the view of the city from the top of Stephansdom.

Visit the French bistro Beaulieu for a little snack. Order a rose lemonade!

The 25hours Hotel has a really nice rooftop bar. End the day here!

How do you define entertainment? What entertains you most? I was telling Tony that most people enjoy going out at night, smoking and drinking until late in the morning. But in my opinion, Vienna is a place that has more to offer during the day than in the night. For me entertainment is for example meeting a friend in a park, sitting on a bench, having a nice conversation and taking some pictures like I did with Tony in our visit at Belvedere gardens.

Have you ever been to Belvedere? The museum is one of the most significant museums in the world, where you can find Gustav Klimt collection and his most famous painting “The Kiss”. Don’t forget to take a picture in the specially designed mirror like in the photo below. By doing so, you take part in the one-year project “The Perfect Tourist” and you might win one of five extraordinary Belvedere packages. Good luck!

If I want to be honest to you, I would say that the 10th district is the only district in Vienna that I don’t like to visit. But when the discussion comes to “where do we find the best Eismarillen knödel in the city” we take the metro and we get off at the last station “Reumanplatz” in the 10th district. There you will find Tichy.

The ice cream shop is “hilarious”. A little bit old, the waitresses wear pink uniforms and they run here and there to serve the customers. It is crowded especially when the weather is sunny, and the Eismarillen Knödel works its way into my heart!

The waitress asks me in German: How many of them would you like to have?
The answer is three. Three Eismarillen Knödel a day, keep the doctor away!

Schoenbrunn gardens

Whenever I go for a stroll in a Viennese garden and, to be more specific, to Schoenbrunn gardens, I have a neighbor who keeps telling me, “stop doing all the touristic things, you have been living in Vienna for three years and there are many other things to discover and places to go.” So, according to my friend, visitors of Schoenbrunn are mostly tourists and I guess locals who live close by. Schoenbrunn palace to Vienna is like Versailles to Paris: the most popular sight in Vienna. It’s huge, magical, and ideal for taking some pictures with my friend Elena.

If you are curious to see how does this place look like in the winter, have a look here!

As you know, the Viennese girl goes everywhere and spies on everything. I have visited this bar many times, during the day but in the night as well and I think that this blog should include a post about this unique place.

Some impressions:

The lift that brings you to the 18th floor is like a dark and black box with a white ceiling, some people are scared, and some are impressed.

I guess the highlight of the roof bar is the colorful ceiling. You have to see it from outside in the night. It something that catches your eyes and makes you wonder: “what is that?”

Βe careful on Saturdays night, because you will probably need a reservation. They will not let you enter in, if the place is full.

One thing that is very disappointing is that they only allow you to sit next to the window only if you go there to eat. Dear Le Loft manager, can you do something to change this? Thank you in advance.
