  • Rathausplatz – Wr Festwochen
    on the square in front of the City Hall you currently will find food stands from 23 different countries as part of the Theatre festival. On a big screen you will be able to watch operas, concerts etc and eat and drink at the huts. The food is of good quality and famous restaurants pay a lot of money to get a stand there in the summer.
  • Sacher – world famous Hotel that also has a world famous coffee place. They have the world famous Sacher Torte (chocolate cake). it is worth going to the coffee house inside the hotel and have a coffee just to see the interior design

    Demel – they compete with Sacher – for centuries there is a fight between the 2 of them who invented the so called sac her Torte – I say try them both – they are both amazing and both coffee houses are a must – see also in terms of interior design. At demel you will also have a chance to watch them making the cakes through a window in the staircase.

  • Aida – it is a famous code franchise – not so cool to sit but they have the best Creme Schitten and “Punschkrapfen” – a punsh cake with a pink sugar coating. Also – to my opinion they have the best “Topfengulatschen” – a sweet cheese pastry.
