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.
It is an impressive architecture and paintings. All the Jesuits churches are so. You enter and you will be impressed by the atmosphere, in fact that's what all the architects are looking for, because that's how you somehow forget who they really are.

This monument stands in tribute to Johannes Gutenberg, the man credited with inventing the printing press. The monument is a bronze sculpture of Gutenberg wearing a gown and depicted with a huge beard. To his right is a printing press, which he is leaning on with his right hand.
Not an amazing sculpture, but worth a look at a monument...
We caught the first team of the day at 10:00 a.m. There were only two other people onboard. This wasn’t our first day in Vienna, so we had already been around the area on foot. The only thing that I liked was the fact that this is an old tram, with lots of history. It stands out from the other...
I used google maps to find this place. It's stunning. Ludwig Van Beethoven used to perform concerts there during his life in Vienna. There is a beautiful hall inside with amazing colours. Unfortunately I was unable to see inside.
We love to have a small talk with the friend making the coffee here and anytime we are around, we never miss a chance of getting an excelent coffee from such a unique cafe. I highly recomend it to anyone who is a coffee lover!!
Our first night in Vienna coincided with a birthday so we decided to celebrate it at ef16. Celebrating a birthday dinner at ef16 was an excellent choice.
All of the food was superb, with much of it local and seasonal. Particularly noteworthy were the Vienerschnietzel, very good summer salads, and delicious bread. The wine was surprisingly good as was the...

"A gastronomy jewel in Vienna"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by GFK88
During our visit at lunch, the restaurant was fairly quiet. Service was very friendly and informative, food was very good. Restaurant is beautiful and once the outside is open, we will be back to enjoy the magnificent setting in the heart of Vienna
Just outside the pedestrian area of Old Town with easy access to U1 Line only a block away (takes you to main train station within 10 min.) This hotel is tricky to find as it is on the second floor inside a business building but once found what a pleasure! Check in was quick and efficient with helpful friendly staff....
This hotel was so lovely. Very old fashioned looking but very clean. The bathroom and toilet are separate on either side of the entrance hallway to the room which was large enough to store cases and had hooks to hang up jackets.
The room had a wardrobe desk and table chair and double bed with the added touch of a...
Perfect hotel for us. Friendly, helpful, quiet and peaceful. Great location to walk round the old city. Delicious & plentiful breakfast with a variety of very fresh bread. Nice decor, clean with nice soap in bathrooms, good wi-fi for our teenager. Staff were very helpful with advice & printing off tickets we needed.
Pleasant enough hotel with basic facilities . Close to the metro and some very reasonable eateries as you walk towards the cathedral . . I would say it was more 3* than 4* . Nice touches were the free to borrow umbrellas and also the availability of coffee and tea throughout the day and evening . Very relaxed atmosphere ....
"Perfect place to stay if you want to see the inner heart of Vienna."

I recently stayed at the Hotel Post Wien and overall it was almost perfect. The hotel is nestled in the Inner Stadt district, within walking distance of the city center. A metro is conveniently located a minutes walk from the front door and it takes you all around Vienna at an extremely low cost. The area itself has a medley...
