Schloss Belvedere

Sightseeing

Surrounded by some of Vienna’s best-known sights, you can explore the nearby Belvedere Palace and its Botanical Garden with banana palms and lemon trees growing in the picturesque pavilion guarding its entrance. You will feel yourself start to blossom as you enjoy a leisurely stroll among countless varieties of exotic flora in the heart of Vienna. In fact, it will seem for all the world like a holiday within a holiday. Admission to the Botanical Garden is completely free of charge.

Like the Belvedere, the famous 21er Haus planned by the visionary architect Karl Schwanzer is just a stone’s throw away from the hotel. Built in 1958 as the Austrian pavilion for Expo 58 in Brussels, it was reconstructed in Vienna in 1962 and has provided a space for contemporary art to thrive ever since.

Nightlife

Vienna’s new main station, the Hauptbahnhof is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel. If you want to unwind after a busy day or experience the capital’s nightlife,  two urban hotspots – Karlsplatz and the MuseumsQuartier are right around the corner from the hotel. Contemporary outdoor spaces set the scene for some serious people watching. There are always new galleries, bars and clubs to discover in this part of town.
