May I be so bold as to say that Vienna has been my favorite European city so far?

Going in, I knew nothing about Vienna. But the breathtaking train ride from Munich to Vienna set the stage for the perfect visit to the most amazing city.

Vienna is full of so much culture, art & tradition. I love how beautiful and posh every experience feels. From the coffee to the cake to the ornate decor, visiting Vienna is a rich and unforgettable experience.


Where to eat & drink

Cafe Central

Herrengasse 14, 1010 Wien, Austria

Go here for an amazing breakfast or afternoon coffee & cake break. You’ll feel like you’re on Gossip Girl the whole time you’re there.


Lerchenfelder Straße 1-3, 1070 Wien, Austria

Go here for a quirky rooftop bar with a view of the city. It’s a dream for all my champagne cocktail lovers.

Boa Bar

Zollergasse 2, 1070 Wien, Austria
Go here when you’re exploring the 7th district. Boa buns, sweet potato fries & siracha ketchup – need I say more?

Onyx Bar

Stephansplatz 12, 1010 Wien, Austria

Go here when you want a swanky drink and the best view in the city of St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Creme de la Creme

76, Lange G., 1080 Wien, Austria

Go here for a beautiful & modern take on Vienna’s traditional cake culture.

Cafe Hawelka

Dorotheergasse 6, 1010 Wien, Austria

Go here when you’re in the city center and need to rest your feet. It’s a traditional Viennese coffeehouse and you won’t be disappointed. Fair warning – there are no menus & they only take cash.



What to see & do

St. Stephen’s Cathedral – Climb the South Tower

Yes, this is a very touristy thing to do. But it’s also a must. This is the most beautiful cathedral I’ve ever seen and the view from the top is breathtaking.

Museum Quarter

An area of Vienna where many museums are housed. But don’t go here for the museums. Go here for the many outdoor festivals, music performances & food truck gatherings just outside the Quarter walls.

The largest outdoor market I’ve seen yet! So many colorful foods to see & try. You’ll find local artisans, produce, LOTS of baklava & a nice selection of restaurants.

Drink Coffee

Ok, I know this sounds lame. But it’s the perfect way to experience the heart of Vienna. Vienna has such a traditional coffee culture and it’s so fun to just park yourself at a cafe, have a cappuccino or two and enjoy some people watching and good conversation.


Happy exploring!
