With around 120 booths the "Naschmarkt" is the most famous market street of Vienna. Offering a colourful culinary choice of fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, cheese and other food from almost all around the world. You can not only smell, look at and buy all those things, but also eat them right there, as many of the former market stalls have been turned into small restaurants.
The Naschmarkt has become a place to meet for young and old. The flea market every Saturday morning has attained cult status.

Getting there:
Underground Line 1, 2 or 4, Station Karlsplatz and then 5-7min. walking

Mariahilfer Strasse , Rooftop Café and Japanese Restaurant
Mariahilfer Strasse might be just the right place for those of you wanting to go shopping. The long street itself as well as many of its side streets are densely packed with shops of all kinds. And if before, during or after shopping you feel like broadening your horizon, we suggest you take the elevator up to the last floor of the big department store Gerngross (Mariahilfer Strasse 42-48).There, you'll find a Japanese (Akakiko) restaurant as well as a Café, which also have a terrace on the rooftop - great view over the whole city!

Getting there:
Underground Line 2, Station Mariahilfer Strasse
Underground Line 3, Station Westbahnhof, Zieglergasse or Neubaugasse
Mariahilfer Strasse
Vienna's second-largest pedestrian area with preserved historic buildings and idyllic squares. Only a few minutes by foot away from the city centre and next to the shopping boulevard Mariahilferstrasse. No loud street noises, just romantic lanes, a fascinating atmosphere and a multitude of cosy and authentic restaurants with nice out-door areas.

Getting there:
Underground Line 2 Station Museumsquartier and then 7 min. by foot
Underground Line 2 Station Volkstheater and then 3 min. by foot
This Café-Bar-Restaurant is situated in a large glasshouse dating back from the early 19th century, when it was used as a greenhouse for palmtrees (hence the name) and other plants. It has a beautiful huge terrace facing a park, the "Burggarten" (at the back of the museum Albertina). Especially beautiful around sunset.

Getting there:
Underground Line 1, Station Alte Donau
5 min. walking from NH Hotel Danube City
Alte Donau
St Stephan's Cathedral (Stephansdom)
The big cathedral in the very City Center, one of Vienna's best known landmarks. Mozart was married and had two of his children baptised here. The best view of the beautiful tiled roof is the reward for climbing up the 343 winding stairs in its southern tower...
Right off the Stephan's Square (Stephansplatz) Kärntnerstrasse and Graben are one of the most traditional, inner city shopping avenues of Vienna. Located at the end of the Graben - its hard to miss - you will find: Julius Meinl am Graben.
Julius Meinl's gourmet paradise is as good as they get anywhere. A smaller and Austrian Version of Herod's in London, it is a must if you are delicacy-shopping in Vienna. At the end of Kärntnerstrasse, right behind the famous State Opera House (Staatsoper) you will find Hotel Sacher.
The Hotel Sacher is not only a world famous residence and coffee house,  but also especially well known for the Sachertorte, a chocolate cake with a thin apricot filling.

Getting there:
Underground Line1 and 3, Station Stephansplatz
Hofburg Palace
Former home of the Habsburg dynasty, rulers of the Austro-Hungarian empire. It currently serves as the official residence of the Austrian President, but its halls also include the treasury (Schatzkammer), the National library, a "Sissy Museum" and the Spanish Horse Riding School.
Spanish Riding School (Spanische Hofreitschule) The Lipizzan breed, the majestic white horses, and the Hofburg go together like music and sound. An unforgettable experience not only for horse lovers.

Getting there:
Underground Line 2 Station Volksgarten or Museumsquartier
Underground Line 3 Herrengasse and then 5-7 min. walking
Schönbrunn Palace
The former imperial 1441-room Rococo summer residence and one of the most important cultural monuments in the country. The gardens are very nice to walk around and the hike up to the Gloriette is worth it just for the view down at the palace below. Also the museum and especially the adjacent zoo are worth a visit. UNESCO-World Heritage Site since 1996.

Getting there:
Underground Line 4, Station Schönbrunn or Hietzing-Zoo
Schloss Schönbrunn
Riesenrad - The Big Wheel
A ride on the Viennese Ferris wheel, the Vienna landmark which is visible from afar, should be part of every Vienna tour. Especially beautiful during evening hours! In about 20 minutes you can go all the way round in one of its cabins - with a spectacular view over the entire city and beyond.

Getting there:
Underground Line 1, Station Praterstern
Riesenrad (Prater)
Restaurant "Wiener"
Beautiful restaurant with very decent Viennese Kitchen. It used to be the meeting point for Austrian Popsingers. Those times are over (as there's not much left of Austrian pop), but what remained is the extraordinarily pleasant atmosphere, the friendly personnel, and, of course, the very good food - plus you can eat there until late.
