a great park in the middle of the city which keeps on of the biggest secrets of Vienna, the Volksgarten club which has great parties, DJ's and offers indoor and outdoor space

The gardens are beautiful and the roses are stunning. The hidden gem in the garden is the little cafe - coffee and cake or a more substantial meal. We had the frittaten soup and the wrestle with bread and mustard - delicious. They don't serve...More

Across the street from the Parliament (Rathaus) is imperial park called the Volksgarten, with a fine public garden. If you are a fan of the Empress Sisi, you should not miss the Sisi Monument in the far corner of the park. The white monument is...More

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

Where did you get Palais Schwarzenberg from? It has been a hotel for some time and closed for several years.

3 days in Vienna as a wheelchair user (8 Replies)
Hello I'm visiting Vienna for 4 nights in a few weeks time. We'll have 3 full days to explore. I'm a wheelchair user so attractions and transportation to/from will have to be accessible. I'm struggling to come up with a good itinerary for our trip and wondered if you have any advice? We'll be staying at Hotel Schani (Karl-Popper-Straße 22 1100 Wien) for two nights and then Hotel Donauwalzer (Hernalser Gürtel 27, 1170 Wien) for the last two nights. What we've got so far: Day 1 ...More

Best place for a picnic (6 Replies)
Hi everyone! Can anyone share/recommend the best place for a picnic? More of a place where we can sit on the grass and spread out a bit. I know Volksgarten looks beautiful, but mostly benches and maybe not the most appropriate place to be on the lawn? Perhaps Augarten? And I think Vienna Woods might be a little to far... Thanks so much! Brooke
