In my early twenties, I used to study in Austria’s beautiful capital city. Everytime I come back now, I love to visit my old favorite spots but also like to see what has changed since then.
I started my day with breakfast at the Guesthouse Vienna. A very charming, modern boutique hotel, located in the central with a breakfast menu to die for.
Next I went to the Augarten, for a walk at the beautiful park and stopped at TBA21. Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary is a very interesting foundation, that mainly commissions experimental, and unconventional projects.
Back in the central I met a good friend for lunch at the Palmenhaus. This is one of my absolute favourite spots in Vienna. The restaurant is located in an old orangery with an amazing view over the Burggarten. After an hour of catching up we decided to take a fiaker tour through the first district. There is no better, comfortable way to enjoy that old town, plus we got funny insider stories by the driver, who seems to know everything that ever happened in those historical buildings.
After the tour and a little shopping we stopped at the famous “zum schwarzen Kameel”, a nice also quite historical place to have a bite and a drink and especially a place to see and be seen.
As it was still very warm outside we were in the mood for a nice outside dinner location. We went to the Volksgarten Pavillon, a bungalow built in the 50s with a cute little garden for their delicious barbecue. A very nice spot to end the day!
