We were there early, but the food, drinks etc. were all good, not cheap, but classy. But seemed a bit dead, maybe were too early. Smoking section had more life - and a lot more smoke! Good views, good for a quiet sedate dinner, even a romantic one.

Very poor value. The views are not great. 2 beers in the mid afternoon were €17 which is the most expensive encountered in Europe this trip. You get a much better view from the bell tower of St Stephens just up the road. We asked for lunch menus they didn't arrive thankfully!

This bar is on 7th floor of a building full of retail shops. You fly up on a lift outside the building and climb the last level. Great views in a really friendly bar with friendly staff. Two pints and two g and t's 50 euro. That took the fun out of it. Not worth the effort at those prices.

This bar has an unrivalled view of the cathedral through massive glass windows. You can also see down to the street if you sit close to the windows. The bar has a three page cocktail list (recommend BBC - rum, baileys, banana, etc.), most cocktails are about 13€. The bar plays pretty funky music too, maybe just a little bit... More

We stopped for a drink expecting the kind of welcoming service we had gotten all along on our trip. That part, not so much. The views are amazing and well worth it, but the drinks (and food) are expensive and overrated.

Beautiful location with a view from the restaurant accross at the cathedral. They took money to hang our coats up which was something I have not seen for a while. The wine, bottle of red. it was ok but around 70 Euro a bottle for a name I did not know, would have expected a bit more. Portions were ok,... More

We have been waiting for almost 1 hour. They forgot to make our dish. Totally unprofessional staff. We can't even sit where we want and they have empty tables. They charge for cloakroom 2€ even if you spend here money. The view is very bad, you can't see anything and air condition is broken. Don't come in!

We went there for a cocktail after dinner. We were surprised when it was asked a charge of 2€ to leave the coat in the cloakroom (really weird to have to pay for that in a place where you are gonna spend money afterwards, anyway...) Then it was not advertised everywhere that is SMOKING AREA all the area around, so... More

Nice ambient and view. You should visit it once, but that's it. It is overly expensive, the service is terribly slow and the desserts are bland. As mentioned earlier, the location is its saving grace.

After walking for a long distance exploring the city we stumbled across this bar as we'd built up quite a thirst! Lovely traditional staircase leading to the bar. We had a Raspberry Bellini and a beer which was average on price. Staff were polite and professional when taking our order. Relaxing music in the background which created a lovely atmosphere.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
