Sightseeing

Surrounded by numerous historic buildings, a stay at the hotel is a chance to experience some of Vienna’s history up close. World-famous works of art such as Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss are on display at the Belvedere gallery around the corner. It’s also where the treaty was signed that re-established Austria’s status as a sovereign state in 1955. Hidden next door is an oasis in the middle of the city, the Botanical Gardens, where you can spend a few quiet moments or go for a jog. For a bit of contrast to the classical art and culture that Vienna is so famous for, take a walk to the 21er Haus museum of contemporary art.

In the Center

Vienna’s historic old town is also just a few minutes away from the hotel. This, and on the Ringstrasse boulevard that encircles it, is where the major sights are to be found. Discover the city by strolling through the narrow streets and grand avenues. The excellent public transport network means that all the other famous sights are very easy to get to. Whether you want to take a trip to the Imperial Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna’s major shopping street Mariahilfer Strasse or enjoy a relaxing glass of wine against the backdrop of the gently rolling hills at the city limits, it’s all on your doorstep. 

 

The hotel has excellent transport links thanks to the nearby Hauptbahnhof main railway station. Major redevelopments are underway in the area of the city around the station. The Arsenal, a repurposed 19th-century military complex, and the new Sonnwendviertel quarter are novel additions to the cityscape that showcase the possibilities of modern approaches to space utilisation.
