Here’s all you need for a laid-back yet whirlwind stay in Vienna this summer!
Lazy summer afternoon drinks
Why go to the coast when you can let the beach come to you! Haya Molcho and her four sons have brought Tel Aviv Beach to the banks of the Danube canal. Spend your summer afternoon lazing at this hotspot and nestle your feet in the sand while munching on oriental delights from the Levant, and sipping homemade lemonades to a backdrop of live music and DJs. When the sun sets the fun doesn’t end, as the summer vibes go on long into the night.
Come 29th June 1st September, the Rathausplatz Film Festival will once again descend upon the Viennese capital. Now in its 29th year and reaching audiences of around 980,000, this isn’t your average film festival. Every evening as night falls, grab a spot in front of the huge open-air cinema and enjoy recordings of concert performances and opera productions from all across the musical spectrum. Not only is it completely free and there’s a whole host of food trucks on site, but it’s a wonderful way to soak up the Rathaus city hall in all its gothic beauty!
Ideally located in the Museumsquartier, 25hours hotel is a hipster haven decorated with vibrant colours, vintage finds and quirky prints. Thanks to its wonderful location, the rooftop bar has some of the best views in the city – making it a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. The variety of rooms available are spacious, filled with natural light and come with said views on top. Make the most of the free bike rental, chill out in the Mermaid’s Cave (the in-house spa area) or dine on cosmopolitan, Italian-inspired dinners at the 1500 Foodmakers restaurant. With so much on offer, you might not set foot outside!
