Put it on your list and do it !

While we didn't have any "bad" gelato in Vienna, this was definitely our pick for the best ! Fresh, true flavors and decent prices...it was a real treat. Expect a bit of a line if you're there during any kind of "normal" ice cream hours. They don't have any inside seating but to their credit... read more

We arrived with high expectations and it was worth to wait the line! Natural true flavors, absolutely delicious! The pumpkin seed oil ice-cream and pistachio are amazing!

Eis Greissler is a great ice cream place! If you're in the city center and are looking for a great, refreshing snack, this is a good place. It is not my favorite ice cream in Vienna, but their locations are amazing (one is 5mins from Stephansplatz and the other in the always busy shopping street of Mariahilferstrasse). Their fruity flavors... More

Eis Greissler offers organic ice cream and has some rather unconventional flavours like poppyseed and almond. I would personally recommend the apricot ice cream, it's really delicious. Most of the time, there is quite a line in front of the shops, but it's absolutely worth the wait. Also, the ice cream is not exactly cheap, but again - organix. There... More

I've ate ice creams all around the wordl. Those one was the top of the top. Big portions (straight from the heart) and very rich in taste. Absolutely best sorbets I've ate so far.

Gelato, eis, ice cream - whatever you call it, it's a favorite anytime of year and in Vienna where there are many gelato and eissalons which rival Italy, you would think they'd all be the same. Eis Greissler rises above all the others, and if you have any doubts, just look at the line of people down the street on... More

One of the best ice cream shops in Vienna they use local organic ingredients and have a variety of flavors from mango to more local flavor tastes such as pumpkin seed oil and goat cheese. Goat cheese is sweet with a nice tang which I combined with the nutty pumpkin seed oil.

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
