Even if their ice cream is organic and has fancy tastes, it is never worn it to stand in a line of approximately 20 people blocking the sidewalk just for a scoop of ice cream

You stand in line.... the line is shorter on rainy days and in winter. But it's always worth the wait. The tiny walk in walk out store has amazing ice cream made with organic milk and natural fresh ingredients. I particularly like the pear ice cream and an ice cream named "horse apples"- the Austrian term for... well, you know.... More

The Eis Greissler seems to be very popular since it opened a couple of years ago, but to be honest I can't see what the fuss is all about. I tried since it was popular, I had to stand in a Queue for quite a while (15 min for sure) but, honestly, the ice cream is nothing Special. Yes, it... More

Icecream that tastes like the name suggests. Pear tastes like a pear, chocolate like chocolate and so on. Dare to try the more 'adventurous' ones like pumpkin seed oil or 'horse droppings. Don't let the sometimes long queues dissuade you, it moves quickly.

Really excellent ice cream flavours! But the usual long waiting times can be annoying, especially with kids. Either visit during unpopular hours or after a meal for a dessert. There's practically no place to sit so plan to grab the ice cream on the go.

Expect to wait a bit, however definitely worth it. Was recommended by locals to us. They have sorbet as well as milk based ice cream. You can't sit inside (too small). Interior is creative. I enjoyed the local 'Marille' (Apricot) ice cream sorbet.

Unfortunately, they were out of pumpkin. However, the butterscotch was really nice. My daughter asked for lemon, but ended up with black currant instead. Overall, we enjoyed their ice cream.

Eating this ice cream doesnt feel like a guilty pleasure but like a pure pleasure, good for both body and soul because ingredients are great, flavors are natural, there are some vegan options.. I suggest bitter chocolate, it is not bitter at all, but it is the best chocolate flavor you can imagine, something like great chocolate pudding... One ball=1€50,... More

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.
