The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicentre. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighbourhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
It's no more than an ok museum, quite expensive for its size. The lady at the front desk was not very helpful and the only way to follow the exhibition in English was through a separate booklet of which there is only one copy that every non-German-speaking person in the room must share or wait for. Ethnographic museums have lots...
We recently visited Vienna during a Danube river cruise. It was our first time in this magnificent city. We decided to attend a classical music concert since that seemed to be a "must do" event because the city is the home of so much classical music history. We purchased tickets to the Weiner Hofburg Orchestra performance at the recommendation of...
We found this at the side of our hotel! Now we are theatre buffs and could not resist popping in for a showing of Shirley Valentine and we were not disappointed!
Gorgeous little place, very friendly and for a Brit abroad, a fantastic concept! We will be back!
One bad point the beer choices were Becks or Guinness! 🤔 With...
This is a grand theater located in the wonderful Josefstadt neighborhood just a few blocks from the Parliament and the Rathaus (City Hall) and offers plays of many types and genres of theater in the German language, from musicals to romantic comedies to significant, serious drama. It's an important component of the culturally rich city of Vienna. Tickets are mid-priced....

"Small and quiet in mid-town restaurant and off beaten path but worth the effort to find it."
reviewed 2 weeks ago by John D
I'm staying a few block away from Rosnovskyundco and was looking for a local restaurant that had Viennese food for our last evening. I always check Tripadvisor before choosing and I would say the reviews are accurate and appropriate. The food was good and they also have an interesting and enjoyable selection of local wines.
Well worth recommending to those...

"Old Vienna at its best "
reviewed 4 days ago by Ira L
This is the real deal. An old (a to be honest a little worn around the edges) Viennese cafe. Small tables with efficient but friendly (usually) staff. Authentic cafe offerings including great coffee and pastries. Often packed in the summer but worth the wait.

"Good for Local Ambience"
reviewed 1 week ago by Michelle G
We visited Fromme Helene on our last night of an 8 day business stay in Vienna on a tip of a fellow traveler. We weren't especially looking for another night of local food, but it was a pleasant way to have one last " local" dining experience. The atmosphere is less about tourists and more about dining with locals and...

"Best gf pizza ever"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by greigab
I’m so glad we got to eat here as their gf pizza and gf bread they serve with starters are the best I’ve ever had. Sadly I was so stuffed after these two dishes I didn’t have enough room for their famous gf tiramisu... so will need to visit again.
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a romantic city break for 4 days. The hotel is a great location 5 mins to the underground tram and bus stop as well as the Christmas markets. To walk into the centre takes 10-15 mins. We had a deluxe double room which was a good size and very comfortable.
This was a...
Don’t expect a 4 or 5 star luxury hotel, but expect a really nice hotel with pretty decent service. The location is excellent to anywhere you want to go, either walking, by bus (including hop-on-hop-off buses), or by underground. The hotel has a great little lobby for just having a beer and sitting with friends at a very fair price....
I was stay there for 2 nights for a business trip ,
room are nice, confortable,
very good room service
the only point, that the corridors are very poor and sad, maybe the management can add some nice black and white pictures of Vienna ?
otherwise, nice team
We were there 3 nights. Staff was extremely friendly , polite and helpful. Room was spacious, amazing rainshower, shampoo, shower gel and body lotion was included. We also had morning coats and slippers in the room + capsule coffee machine. Only thing that we didn’t like was too soft bed, it was even hard to fall in sleep first night....
We booked at this hotel at the last minute and it was a very good choice.
Very kind owners, the staff are very friendly and they offer very fast service.
As for the room it was spacious and confortable.
The hotel is situated in a 4 min walk from the U2 and the Rathaus.
