I can't believe I have discovered this place on my very last evening in Vienna :( Such an amazing gelato! Forget about Sachertorte (just had it today, the original one too, way too sweat and nothing special) - take the U4 metro to Schwedenplatz, it's right near the exit, treat yourself with at least 3 different flavours.

In my country you can find the best ice cream anywhere you go as iS an Island with hot weather.In Vienna the best ice cream you can find is at Eissalon am Schwedenplatz, that's why too many people are waiting in queue. This shop is tradition now as is since 1886. We have been there in July in a hot... More

This is the best ice cream in all Vienna, as I'm sure! Very creamy and tastefully. Many varieties and every day an extra of daily grades - exotic and extraordinary. There are only two negative sides, one that the business is only open from April until the end of September - very sad and the second negative side is that... More

For years my husband has been telling me how the best gelato in the world. We are finally in Vienna and it does not disappoint! There is a reason why the patio is always full and a long line at the counter. I highly recommend finding a table as their menu has some of the most interesting and delicious sundaes... More

Every night we saw a lot of people here in front of the salon and in the line. We had to taste their specialties as well. While most of reviews are very positive I wasn't impressed by their ice. First of all the ice was to soft, half melted. Also the taste wasn't that great. Their ice doesn't come close... More

We are from Finland and proud of the quality of Finnish icecream. Saw long lines of people to buy icecream here in the Scwedenplatz and decided that all those people can't be wrong. So we joined the crowd and bought two pieces two-icecreamball cones, one strawberry and vanilla and the other vanilla and cherry flavors. Good as expected, but not... More

Excellent Ice cream, we had also coffee (four different kinds) and we also saw many different ices being served to other people. IT was packed and many people waited outside. Worth it!

I used to wonder why there were queues outside this place whenever I went by. Then a friend suggested I try their gelato. Now I'm part of the queues. I've had an awful lot of gelato in different countries, but nothing comes close to what the Eissalon am Schwedenplatz serves up (at least for my favourites, pistachio and creme mango).... More

We went here in march not certainly ice crean weather but we gave it a go anyway and my god was it worth it. Coming from North America you get a treat although I must say it might not have been THE only place as I did have similar quality ice creams else where in wien. But I would say... More
