The Japanese restaurant Dots is located at Mariahilferstraße. It looks rather unspectacular from the outside, but you are convinced otherwise once you enter the restaurant. A modern and elegant atmosphere as well as the white furniture create a special flair.
Ordering a coffee in Vienna requires a bit of expertise, because of the numerous types of coffee. Try a “Melange” (espresso with milk and milk froth), a “Verlängerter” (espresso with hot water, milk separately), a “kleiner Brauner” (espresso with milk) or a “Einspänner” (small mocca served in a glass with whipped cream) … coffee in Vienna is definitely an experience.
One of the most beautiful cafés in Vienna is Café Central in Herrengasse. You can enjoy your coffee and one of the delicious pastries while listening to piano music. Typical Viennese café tradition!
One of the oldest Cafés is Café Hawelka. It is situated in the centre of Vienna in Dorotheergasse. This Café is pure history. Since its opening in 1939 nothing has changed. Try out the “Buchteln” a typical Viennese dessert!
We can also highly recommend Café Jelinek. The Café is located in the vicinity of Mariahilferstraße and has a particular flair. The furniture is all vintage and it is full of paintings! The homemade cakes are excellent.
Café Phil is one of the “in“ places to visit, it is located in Gumpendorferstraße, as well as the Café Europe in Zollertstraße. Both Cafés are individually designed and furbished and have a great choice of food on their menu.
On the 24th of November 2011 a cocktail tour around the city will take place in Vienna. Starting at 7pm you can visit several bars in the 4th, 5th and 6th district and consume one free cocktail in each of them, all with only one ticket. The cocktails are high quality drinks; most bars also offer non-alcoholic cocktails.
The time has come! Days are getting shorter, it is definitely much colder now and slowly the smell of Christmas cookies and mulled wine is filling the atmosphere.
Advent will be here soon and with it, all the many beautiful Christmas markets in Vienna! While the little ones can enjoy warm chestnuts, the older ones can warm up with a glass of Punsch or mulled wine.
– a kiss changes the world
2012 will be dedicated to Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt was a painting genius and pioneer of the Modern era around 1900. Most of his life he lived in Vienna. Klimt revolutionized the art of painting and his works continue to fascinate to this day. His best known painting “The kiss” can now be seen at the Vienna Belvedere. In 2012 he would have celebrated his 150th birthday. Many museums in Vienna use this as an occasion and present special exhibitions.
Our special suggestion is the Klimt Villa in the 13th district of Vienna. Until his death he had his studio there.
Here is a list of all the exhibitions of next year!
