The Vienna Starter Guide
May 15, 2014
About the Guidebook
Vienna has been at a crossroads for some time, lingering somewhere between the imperial grandeur of the Habsburg-era and a modern European city finding its way in the new millennium. However, in the last several years there is a new energy flowing through city.
Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
Vienna is alive in the new and renovated museums. It’s thriving in the refreshed menus of the reinvigorated gasthäuser — a tavern with accommodations for rent. And it’s buzzing in the nightlife, which can be found in an array of eclectic spots around the city, from decommissioned subways, boats on the Danube and rooftop terraces with million dollar views.
Think of this guide as a starter kit for Vienna. We lay out our favorite places--cafes, restaurants, bars, sights and accommodations--so you can spend more time doing and less time planning.
