It is summer again and we all want to escape the city’s heat. Here are some ideas of where to go to go swimming in Vienna.
Our front-desk team went to try out the restaurant next door; A high-class Croatian- Mediterranean restaurant, focusing on fish cuisine and exquisite food creations. The restaurant has got a cozy atmosphere and a small area to sit outside. The service was excellent. We felt well informed and advised by the friendly waiters. Their fish is always fresh and is delivered straight from Croatia 3x a week.
One of the best places to be in Vienna during summer is the film festival at Rathausplatz. Starting on July 2nd it will attract thousands of people over the following weeks, providing an “outdoor cinema” free of charge(!) with classical dance-and music films as well as operas on a large video wall just in front of the beautiful scenery of Rathaus. Several films are shown every evening, starting as soon as it gets dark enough and only if it does not rain.
The DiningCity restaurant week is on again. From June 27th to July 3rd 2011 you can dine exclusively and pay surprisingly little.

On the 18th of June 2011 the 16th rainbow parade will take place in Vienna. Since 1996 the parade has become one of the most important events for the lesbian gay bisexual and transgender movement. It’s a sign for tolerance, equality and solidarity. Every year the parade reminds of the resistance of lesbians and gays against the police’s systematic repression in June 1969 in New York’s Christopher Street.
