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.
Karlsplatz is an amazing square garden much like many other iconic junctions in Vienna.
There are shops, iconic structures, good bargain souvenir deals, a business school, etc. and many photo ops waiting for the ideal traveler to explore.
Do not forget to cross over to the Opera side of the road, and hunt for Lindt Boutique.

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...

"A taste of Italia in beautiful Vienna"
reviewed 3 days ago by Millivist
I visited Via Toledo two days ago and I simply have to immediately praise it here. I am a great fan of Italian dishes, I've thoroughly travelled Italy in search of great food and I have to admit that I was a bit sceptical about finding it in Austria. But my experience with Via Toledo was amazing. The food is...

"The small place you want near you"
reviewed 6 days ago by pyskhonaut
The number of reviews that are positive for this place seemed too good to be true, but the hype isn't for nothing. We biked 30 minutes to get here and it was worth it. The prices are cheap, the food is unbelievably layered with flavor, and the owners remind you of a time when service was at the peak of...

"Delicious Pizza, fantastic service and lovely surroundings "
reviewed 1 week ago by Barb577
Fabulous and inexpensive dinner out (90 euros for 4 people, entrees and mains and drinks). The owner is so incredibly friendly and the food is authentic and delicious. People were lined up outside waiting for a table on a Tuesday night! Highly recommend booking.
Also wonderful options for gluten free (same pizzas just with a different base) and vegan.

"Wholesome breakfast and divine pastry choices"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by Fabiola M
Recommended by our local cabbie, enroute to the airport we stopped for much needed big breakfast, fresh orange juice, choice of eggs, great sausages and toast
The added selection of pastry and macaroons were delightful
Also packed a box of their own made chocolates
Mid price range
Very good service despite quite a crowd

Visited with friends and was not disappointed. The service and food was first class. Between four of us we had beer tartare, chilli prawns, turkey strips with salad, schnitzel and feta and spinach strudel. Everything was made to order and was delicious.
Friends who lived in Vienna had never heard or visited this retaurant and as I booked based on...
This was recommended by my travel agent. Hotel is small and friendly. Staff is very helpful. The manager particularly went out of her way to make our stay pleasant and to correct a booking error on OUR part. Room is clean, bed is very good size for 2 people, excellent pillows. Air-conditioning works well. Flat screen TV, a few English...
Stayed here for one night and was very pleased. Nice room, good location, easy walking distance to opera house (25 minutes). Very good breakfest and nice staff. Yes, i would return to this lovely spot.
Everything was good, nothing to complain about. One think we were not happy was that we expected the room to be bigger but the space was limited due to roof windows. Otherwise were we satisfied and check in earlier which we really appreciated.
This is conveniently located close to many of the major attractions. Generally very good but not exceptional. Excellent wines by the glass in the bar. The one downside was the rather strange idea of having the glass shower cubicle next to the bed with the washbasin next to that within the room. I suppose we should be grateful that the...
"Great location to sites, restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores!"

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and we enjoyed our stay. You can walk in any direction from the hotel and within 10 minutes you will find something to eat or tour. The breakfast area is nice and there is a variety of meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, fruit, as well as eggs and sausages. We liked the...
