What are the Vienna spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Old Town of Vienna, MuseumsQuartier, a typical Viennese coffeehouse and the Donaukanal.

Do’s and don’ts in Vienna: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):

Viennese people often seem grumpy, and yes, they really can be grumpy - but never mind, just go on, do your thing. Vienna is a really safe city, you don't have to be afraid any time of the day.

Your all-time favorite musicians:

Beyoncé and Jay Z! ... and I will always love The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie

Which neighborhood is it best to experience during the day / night?


Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

Motto am Fluss.

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Vienna?

Any Würstelstand for a Käsekrainer.

It's freeeeezing out - what should a visitor do?

Get some coffee at a typical Viennese Coffeehouse, eat some Cake, visit one of the many Museums or go shopping at Mariahilfer Straße or Kärntner Straße ... it's never too cold to go shopping!

Where do you take your guest when you want to impress?

The Wiener Riesenrad - of course ... and the old town of Vienna. In the Summertime I would definitely take my guest to the Old Danube for a little Boat trip.

Your go-to brunch spots:

Joseph Brot, Ramasuri and R&Bar.

Best place for a cheap bite on-the-go:

Pita Box at Taborstraße.
