A quiet spot please!

Lie back and relax

After all your hard work – sightseeing and co – it really is time to find a quiet place to relax. Why not grab a book and make yourself comfortable?




  1. 1


    Here you will find the uncovered remains of the former Stubentor, a gateway to the city. In addition to impressive buildings such as the Dominican monastery or the former Post and Telegraph Office, there is also a large plane tree, which has been a declared Viennese natural monument since 1994. By the way, last farewells were bidden here  to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on his way to St. Marx Cemetery in 1791.

  2. 2


    Two magnificent pavilions are situated opposite each other on the promenade in the City Park. They are among the attractions of the park and were - together with the river portal and riverbank steps - planned by the architects Friedrich Ohmann and Josef Hackhofer. The pavilions are not only beautiful to look at but also provide protection from the summer sun and unexpected rain.

  3. 3


    Formerly a greenhouse, today the Palmenhaus in Vienna's Burggarten is a popular café. Here, around the corner of the State Opera and the Albertina, you can recharge your batteries (with a Viennese melange of course) while looking into the green Burggarten. Those who like it colorful after their coffee break should visit the Butterfly House with its 500 free-flying butterflies right next door.

    Arkadenhof of Vienna University

    The Arkadenhof is reason enough to take a look into the University of Vienna. This courtyard invites you to relax and get to know people - and not just students: here you will find more than 154 busts and monuments. For 650 years only male scholars were found here. Since June 2016 women scientists like Charlotte Bühler and Lise Meitner have joined the male busts.

On a monument tour

Around the Ringstrasse and in the Burg- and Volksgarten there are lots of statues or artists and other famous personalities. The imperial couple is a very hot tip. You are only allowed to walk past quickly if you are hungry. ;) Otherwise you should take your time and become an art connoisseur.
