Drinking in style in Vienna


Even though summer has come to an end, it doesn't mean goodbye to that vacation feeling. Vienna, the metropolis on the Danube, offers its guests numerous rooftop bars and craft beer places that make us dream of foreign destinations. While the pop-up bars from the summer peak are closing again, in autumn we can enjoy great locations with a magnificent view of Vienna or a tasty trip around the world at the gin bars of the city.

Last year the viewing platform MQ Libelle with its own café opened on the roof of the Leopold Museum and has been attracting visitors with free admission and space for culture. What the Viennese coffeehouses and salons were 100 years ago - an exchange between art lovers - the MQ Libelle is intended to be a "modern salon under the open sky”.
