Your all-time favorite musicians:

There are so many - I don't have a favourite musician, but maybe someone like Max Richter, Nils Frahms

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

The 2.,4.,6., or 8. district are best for this.

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

That depends on what the person likes. In winter, it's nice to go to ShanghaiTan which looks like an opium den!

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Vienna?

If you are drunk and hungry it depends on where you are, and how drunk you are - The "Heisse am Gürtel" would be a good place - Café Europa would be another good place, cause they have good opening hours - or if you make it through the night, take a breakfast in "Orient Occident" - nevertheless, the best idea would be to go home.

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

Go and get inside and have a cup of tea - there are enough nice Cafés around. If you see homeless or sleeping people, contact +43 1 480 45 53, which is a service that will take care of them.

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

I go to the "Wellen-tower" or up the "Höhenstraße" if I want to impress people with a great view of the city. But it's to say that it really depends on the person and his/her interests.

Your go-to brunch spots:

Orient Occident - Goldegg

Your perfect night out in Vienna includes:

Starting with good food to get a base for the night, at least a short walk through one of the terrific gardens in Vienna and a great portion of love...

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

Der Wiener Deewan near the University - you pay what you want!!! They're often a bit angry if someone gives too little, even though they say you can pay as much as you like.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Vienna. How do you spend it?

Try to have you stuff packed the day before. Wake up with no hurry and have a good breakfast. Go on with some cultural program in one of the museums, galleries, watch the nice Jugendstil-architecture - take a picnic or a snack in one of the beautiful parks so that you're not too distracted by food to go on. Have a walk through the city and have drinks and fun in the small streets and bizarre tiny lovely shops and visit a traditional Café or "Beisl". After a good meal in the late evening you should be prepared for more partying before you leave...
