Art & Culture

Art & culture are what defines Vienna, both coming to life at almost every corner. Enjoy some of the highlights.

2 days in Vienna

Spend two days in Vienna. Be inspired by the charm of the capital of music. You can visit quite a lot of interesting sights in two days but most importantly you should take in the unique atmosphere and feel relaxed when you go back home – As the Viennese saying goes „immer schön gemütlich“ (never stress yourself, take it easy!).

Neighborhood

Spend a holiday in the Serviten Quarter -The heart of Alsergrund in Vienna

The Serviten Quarter around The Harmonie Vienna is only a few minutes away from the Ringstraße. Despite its closeness to the city center the area seems like a different world far off the beaten tourist track. There is no other district where one can meet so many students and academics and so many retirees at the same time. This makes for a very interesting mixture of bourgeois and trendy lifestyle.

Shopping

A shopping tour in Vienna is pure joy. According to taste and budget there are shopping possibilities for everyone.

  • We recommend the shopping streets Kohlmarkt, Graben and Kärntner Straße for those who prefer rather exclusive shopping pleasures and design products. Take the D tram from Harmonie Vienna or walk about 15-20 minutes to get there.
  • Mariahilferstraße in the 7th district is the longest shopping street in Vienna. Take the U and get off at the station “Museumsquartier”. In the side streets of Mariahilferstraße you will find small designer shops with interesting, creative and handmade products. Those shops unified and founded the Initiative 7tm.
  • The former red light district Spittelberg is also located within walking distance of Mariahilferstraße. There you will find small galleries and one of the most charming Christmas Markets in the winter.
  • The Naschmarkt near the U4 station „Kettenbrückengasse“ is ideal to shop for food. There is also a flea market every weekend in this area for hunters of rare Viennese treasures. The Naschmarkt is a must see even if you are not looking to buy anything. The excellent selection of exotic products, top quality restaurants and bars and general flair is something which must be experienced.
