Tips for families in Vienna

You have already been to the Prater, Stephan’s cathedral and the thermal baths? Then have a look here and find some inspiration for your next trip!


  1. 1

    Technisches Museum

    Children and museums? They don‘t always go together well and often it takes a lot of persuading to get the little ones to enter a museum! But that should not be such a challenge for you in Vienna’s Technical Museum. Lots of interactive stations and impressive exhibition pieces will definitely appeal to the discoverer in every child.

    Haus des Meeres

    The children can go on a safari in the Haus des Meeres. Special guided tours will take the little ones through the big world of animals. But there are also plenty of unusual things to experience in addition to this tour of discovery – for example touching a real shark skin or seeing what a tortoise’s shell looks like from inside!

    Danube Island cycle paths

    The Danube Island is sacred to the Viennese! Once the area was "only" the floodplain, but since the Danube has been regulated, the island is much more than just the excavation material from the bypass channel. It is a recreational paradise for the whole family – including four-legged friends - where you can not only swim, run and relax, but enjoy especially good cycling. It is over 40 kilometres long and also part of the popular Danube Cycle Route from Passau to Bratislava.

    Dschungel Wien Café Bar

    The number one child-friendly place. The accompanying children's theatre Dschungel is itself worth a visit in any case. The café is designed for its small clientèle.  The seating is great for little ones and there is everything from curry to veggie burger. Breakfast until 2:00 pm!

  5. 5

    Das Chadim

    Directly beside the Wienerberg lake, the Chadim family provides hungry people in search of relaxation with good classical Viennese food. The listed building is a place to feel good and some say that probably the best beef roulade in Vienna is served here.

Not just for youngsters

Musicals for children are often particularly interactive and tell stories from which even adults can learn something. I'll try to make the choice easier for you and have collected a few highlights:
