Culinary enjoyment

Imperial enjoyment with all our senses


  1. 1

    Café Dommayer

    If you still fancy a small, savoury snack after your many different experiences in the palace and the surrounding park, then you can visit the nearby Café Dommayer. A typical old Viennese café! In summer it is particularly popular because of the sun terrace and the shady outdoor garden. I think the Styrian fried chicken is the best in the city, followed by a large portion of homemade ice cream to finish.

    Breakfast in Parkhotel Schönbrunn

    There, where once the many guests of Emperor Franz Joseph I stayed, you can enjoy today an imperial culinary breakfast. The hotel attaches great importance to Austrian, organic certified products such as the delicious home-made muesli, although I rather prefer one of the freshly prepared egg dishes. Incidentally, breakfast tastes especially good on the beautiful, imperial terrace!

    Landtmann's Jausenstation

    An absolute insider tip from my point of view: the snack bar hidden behind the high hedges directly in the Privy Garden in the ground of Schönbrunn Palace. The all-white pavilion stands out in particular through its large garden with many colourful tables and chairs. The best "Kaiserschmarren" (pancake dish) in the city is said to be served here!

    Riding Dinner

    A truly unforgettable experience! Here you can experience a culinary highlight with all 5 senses during an approx. 90 minute ride in a classic horse-drawn carriage to the most beautiful sights of Vienna. While the drvier leads you through the history of the city, a personal butler - in cooperation with top restaurants in the city - takes care of your physical well-being.

    Café Gloriette

    Café Gloriette is certainly one of the most attractive coffee houses in Vienna, but also the one with the most beautiful view! The Gloriette was already used as a breakfast room or dining room in imperial times. Although there is a special “Sisi breakfast”, I prefer to visit the café during the day as there is a huge cake buffet. This includes my favourite cake – the “Sisi Guglhupf” (a kind of ring cake) with candied violets!
