Flights Altenrhein Vienna

Vienna

Vienna is the capital of Austria. Situated on the Danube River, it is one of the most important and fascinating European cities historically, culturally, economically and politically. When you fly with Austrian Airlines to Vienna, you'll visit one of Europe's UNESCO World Heritage Sites with many sites to see such as the Stephansdom, the Hofburg and Schönbrunn Palaces and the Prater amusement park. Check out the Hundertwasserhaus for some truly abstract architecture or go for a walk in one of the city's numerous parks. Whilst in Vienna, don't forget to enjoy a Wiener Schnitzel, an 'Apfelstrudel' with hot chocolate, A 'Mannerschnitte' or a slice of the famous 'Sachertorte'. Vienna has been Europe's centre for music, theatre and arts for centuries: a trip to see the Vienna Philharmonic works by Mozart or Strauss or an evening of opera will make your trip to Vienna quite memorable.

red|guide Tipps: Vienna


EAT in Vienna: Marktachterl
The Karmelitermarkt is becoming increasingly more chic, and the pick of eateries, where one can sit down after the stroll through the market, is becoming more difficult. To the Schöne Perle, with the nicest waiters and the most modern home-style cooking? Or for Georgian flatbread to the Madiani? Far from it: The real connoisseurs drink their Marktachtel in the Marktachterl. The eatery was recently made over from a greasy stall into a cosy market restaurant, and with a keen sense and taste. Now the kitchen is managed by Josef Hohensinn, the former associate of Reinhard Gerer. The restaurant serves top class Vienna specialties. Tip: Try the white house wine, it's phenomenal.

SHOP in Vienna: Park
This shop could have been flown in from New York or Paris, in its entirety. The fashion victim will find two purist white floors in which she or he finds a lot that has to come home at any cost. Cool street wear, stylish fashion and funky accessories are designed by international newcomers as well as established designers such as Raf Simons, Ann Demeulemeester, Haltbar and Hussein Chalayan. What has become commonplace in Barcelona, continues to stand out in Vienna: Next to the gear, that all cries out go home with you, the most beloved books and magazines of each designer are on sale.

STAY in Vienna: Le Mridien
The Méridien is the youngest of the extravagant houses at the ring road. The lack of tradition is balanced with super modern design and fancy styling. The furnishing in the rooms is minimalist but tasteful, and at night the hotel bar Shambala turns into a happening club scene: DJs such as Rodney Hunter and Erdem Tunakan make you dance with an international crowd. If you are mildly hung over the next day you might want to visit the fitness area: One round in the pool or a relaxing steam bath will refresh tired spirits. A night in a double starts at about 180,- euros.

SEE in Vienna: Freihausviertel
The Freihausviertel is not a sight that you'd find on page one of your guide. It's more a highlight for the advanced visitor to Vienna, who has ticked off Hofburg and Co. and now has time to enjoy. The programme: A stroll through what is probably most creative and hip neighbourhood of Vienna. Near the Naschmarkt you will find small shops, beautiful cafés and good restaurants, in the Schleifmühlgasse reigns contemporary art. A mild summer night visiting vernissages, sauntering from gallery to gallery with a glass of wine in your hand - it sure won't get any better than that.
