Worst icecream ever! I went there because I saw a long queue outside, and thought the "italian icream" they mention was good. Awful. TERRIBLE. I threw it in the bin. Italian icecream is totally another thing, our "gelato" is something you can taste every flavor...More

Large selection of daily special flavours. Great flavour and quality, with generally less sugar than alternative places. The forest strawberry icecream is legend, and worth the extra price.

The selection of flavours here was amazing, and the gelato was creamy. They have quick service, so even when the line is out the door it's worth waiting the five minutes to get in and try some of the best gelato in Vienna.

For a long time we wisit this establishment, as this is where you get the best ice-cream in Vienna. Sometimes it is very difficult to get a place there.

Family-run place, always very busy as it is next to tube and tram stations. A huge selection of organic and vegan ice-creams available. Can be highly recommended!

Stopped here before catching boat trip. Huge selection of ice creams and sundaes. Good photographs of each product with descriptions in German and English. Almost too hard to choose! Service fast and products delicious. Not cheap but worth every penny!

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
