Flights to Vienna

With your comfortable Austrian flight to Vienna you will land at the airport Vienna-Schwechat, the home and hub of Austrian Airlines. The City Airport train, a regional train or a bus will bring you to downtown Vienna in a very short time. To see the most important sights use the well-maintained public transport system or try the Viennese way and get around by “Fiaker“, black open horse carriages that you will find in abundance all throughout the city. Once the Habsburgs, the extended dynasty that ruled not only Austria, but also Spain, the Netherlands and much more territory in Europe and South America, made their mark on their hometown. The Hofburg Palace in the city and Schönbrunn Palace outside the city were their centres of power, from here Emperors and Empresses ruled over a large part of Europe. In the Treasury of the Hofburg you will encounter treasures from the Habsburgs, like the imperial crown of the Holy Roman Empire from 962 or the Holy Lance.

From their times as rulers of Spain you can still experience the famous equestrian performances in the Spanish Riding School, also located in the Hofburg. If the names Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Schubert and Johann Strauß ring some bells, you know why Vienna is also called the “City of Music”. You can visit the graves of nearly all of the superstars of classical music in Vienna’s Central Cemetery. You can also find out that their music is very much alive with a concert of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra or a performance at the Wiener Staatsoper. Visit the grand coffee houses and indulge in the Viennese cuisine, a unique style influenced by the several areas of the vast Austrian Empire. Have fun in Vienna!

Bar Puff
Matthias Euler-Rolle was the youngest radio host in Austria and grew to fame through the channel Ö3. Today he is programme director of the soul radio station And owner of a bar. At the end of November 2012 he opened his own bar called Puff in the Girardigasse in the sixth Viennese district. Everything happened quietly, almost secretly. It's a cool joint, used to be known under the name Girardi Club where easy girls welcomed their guests. Today this is different. The bar was designed by the Viennese Walking-Chair design studio and you sit under light objects made of PET bottles and sip cocktails that do not know frippery and affectations. The bar has the first Gimlet machine in the city which stands directly on the counter.

If you haven't been to the theatre in Vienna you've missed something. The most elegant is located at the ring road, directly opposite to the City Hall. The Burgtheater has a long tradition, yet it is known as one of the most modern stages in the German-speaking world. The repertoire includes international classics and contemporary works, much of it from the rich tradition of Austrian plays. On the small stage, the Kasino, it even gets a bit more zeitgeisty and progressive: Young, courageous directors and playwrights have a platform that is no less professional than Mother Burg. Although some in the theatre city like to pretend that theatre is a pleasure for high society only, it's not at all the case: The audience is a colourful mix, and an unofficial dress code is at place - if at all - in the boxes. Tip: Going to the cinema is probably more expensive than a visit to the Burgtheater, since one hour before the start the remaining tickets are sold for half the price. Works most of the time.

Shanti Yoga Store
Of course, this is not all about yoga mats, yoga bags and cushions. It's interesting for all who look for relaxation everywhere, enjoying cool and comfortable fashion. This doesn't have to be hidden in your gym bag, but can be worn on the streets, too. The manager Birgit Kohl sells beautiful pieces by labels from the American scene, for example colourful shirts with brilliantly coloured Buddha and Chakra appliqués by Lily Lotus. Her advice is great, and you can touch, try and compare everything.

Hotel Sacher
Sharon Stone, John Malkovich and similar bigwigs have spent the night here. No wonder: The Sacher continues to be one of the most elegant hotels in Vienna. Its namesake is the dark-black, world famous Sacher tort. Lady Anna Sacher, who took over the traditional house in 1880, is just as legendary as the cake. She knew how to enjoy herself, loved thick cigars, indulgent luxury and small dogs. The suites aren`t exactly cheap, yet the hotel offers the best service, a lot of style and much space. The rooms are named after operas, singers or famous hotel guests.
