Casino Wien is located at Palais Esterházy, the oldest building on the famous Kärntner Strasse right in the heart of Vienna, just a few steps away from St. Stephen's Cathedral. Our casino boasts a perfect combination of historical elegance and contemporary design. The Jackpot Cafe on the ground floor creates a relaxed, casual atmosphere. On the upper floors, our guests will find an elegant world of salons with an exceptionally stylish interior: the casino on the first floor radiates an elegant British club atmosphere, with Roulette, Black Jack and other games creating extreme excitement. At the Cercle Bar, we serve freshly mixed cocktails and more. On the second floor, the Ovale & Chinese Salons boast a variety of gaming machines. Moments of pleasure and culinary delights at the highest level can be experienced in the Red & Grey Salons of the Casino Restaurant Vienna.

As far as European casinos go, this is one of the best I've been to. We went directly up to the second and third floors, so didn't experience the "not fancy" section downstairs. Entrance is 30 euros, which you get back in chips. You also get a glass of sparkling wine. The slots took our money pretty quickly, and we... More

Dear erazsicxela, thank you so much for this lovely feedback! We are so happy that you enjoyed your evening at Casino Wien and that you liked our interior which we redesigned last year. Concerning the dresscode you were absolutely right, the motto is "smart casual" because also a Casino has to keep up with time and modern fashion :-) But... More

Nice modern casino that is small downstairs. You need photo ID and if wanting to spend big on the tables upstairs you need a dinner jacket. Our group purchased 30EUR chips for 27EUR. It's easy to spend it quickly so be careful with your money. Undoubtedly, the house always wins. A bit of fun nonetheless.

Dear tobyfield, thank you so much for your review. Good to read that you had an entertaining evening at Casino Wien although you hadn't big winnings. Hope to see you again soon, by the way: We have a lovely restaurant at the 2nd floor, there "culinary winnings" are guaranteed :-) Best regards, Julia Steiner More

Except for USA, generally speaking casinos have also evolved in most places and are non-smoking. We had to each open an account for 30 € which wasn't bad. The first floor has only a few slot machines, a roulette table and one blackjack table. By North American standards, this is a countryside casino. Second and third floors can only be... More

Dear fstrdr, thank you very much for your review.

I was confused by the reviews if going there would be a good idea. But when we arrived the lady at the reception desk told us that there were two different choices: since we were better dressed, we should go to the second floor. The first floor is for smokers and gamblers. The second floor is for people looking for... More

If you're from North America and you're looking for entertainment, this is not the place. If you're a degenerate gambler and you are happy to see a table or slot then go for it.

We went there twice. The first time we were dressed appropriately for the first floor and everybody was polite. The second time we went casually dressed and the man in the reception was rude and demand to take off my jacket before entering the casino for "security" reasons as he said. It was really offensive and I will never visit... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
