HISTORY
With spring now fully and gloriously upon us, and
perhaps soon summer too, we can all kick off our
shoes and rediscover the lush feeling of grass tickling
our toes. Vienna's parks offer just this experience, but
there's more – what about looking up Vienna's coolest
summer park cafés; we've listed them for you on p.29.
The locals are delighted with the warmer weather, and
the so-called 'Schanigarten season'; the reopening of
the café terraces. When it comes to culture, Vienna's
wonderful Klimt Year just keeps on going, with several
exhibitions to choose from; see p.21. There's more to
Austria than Vienna, and it's easy to escape the city
for a day; to visit the unique Gugging Museum (p.44),
for example, for for a trip to the wonderful vineyards
in the picturesque Wachau valley (p.48). This edition
of Vienna In Your Pocket additionally has information
about the working-class 5th district of Margareten
and suggestions for where you could go to watch the
Euro 2012 football matches.
Whatever you do this spring and summer, let us
know about any tips or comments you may have,
via vienna@inyourpocket.com. Enjoy Vienna.

Vi enna i s a ci ty of dreams.
A ci t y ful l of l i fe, economi c
vitality, efficient transportation,
numerous modern buildings and
architectural gems. A city that
offers people work and the youth
a wide range of opportunities.
Vienna is also the city of green
parks, calm, dreamy alleys, art
and music. This ci ty attracts
people. Vienna is growing; li fe
can be felt on every corner and
in every street.
Vienna is rightly deemed a city
worth living in, a model of providing medical and social
benefits. Hardly any other city in the world is as closely tied
to both medical tradition and medical advances as Vienna.
As the headquarters of international agencies such
as OPEC, the UN and the International Atomic Energy
Agency, Vienna is also a cosmopolitan city of culture and
gastronomy - just as the “Vienna School of Medicine”
became an international term, so too has Viennese
cuisine gained an international reputation.
Simply put, Vienna is the perfect mix: street art and the
State Opera are just as much a Viennese pair as the
Heuriger and first class cuisine. Internationally acclaimed
exhibitions in the Albertina or the Museumsquartier are
just as much a part of us as an improvised stage in
the outer districts or the film festival at Rathausplatz,
Europe’s biggest open air cinema.
The rich spectrum of cultural offerings makes Vienna
a leading cultural metropolis; one often hears the term
“international capital of music” connected with it. On the
one hand, there are the many composers and musicians
who have lived and worked in Vienna over the past few
centuries. On the other, there are the Viennese music
institutions with their grand tradition, which constantly
keep this reputation fresh and carry it forth into the world.
In the best tradition of the many Viennese markets, I can
only say: have a look around!
Welcome to Vienna!

Starting off as a tiny village along the Wien river, Vienna is
now the 10th largest city in the EU and home to many major
international organizations such as the United Nations
and OPEC.
Antiquity
Founded around 500 BC, Vienna was originally a Celtic
settlement. By 15 BCE, the town had developed into a Roman
frontier city called Vindobona, protecting the Roman Empire
from Germanic tribes.
Medieval times
During the Middle Ages, Vienna became the residence of the
Habsburg dynasty in 1440 and eventually grew to become
the capital of the Holy Roman Empire.
Beleaguered by Ottomans
On their march towards western Europe, the Ottoman
armies were twice stopped at Vienna in the 16th and 17th
centuries. During the 1529 Siege of Vienna, the city was
lucky to escape defeat and was saved by an early winter
and epidemics. A century later, the city's fortifications had
been greatly expanded proved their worth during the 1683
Battle of Vienna, when they helped the city survive for two
months, allowing the army led by Polish King Jan Sobieski to
assemble and defeat the Ottomans for good.
18th century
Baroque was the style of the century and hundreds of
buil di ngs were constructed or remodell ed i n the curl y
Baroque look by architects like Johann Bernhard Fischer
von Erlach and Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. The local
nobility started constructing palaces in the – now safe –
countryside immediately outside the city, resulting in several
magnificent summer palaces, such as Palais Liechtenstein
and Schönbrunn.
19th century
Vienna became the capital of the huge Austrian Empire in
1804, and later of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, playing
an important role in European and world politics. The arts
blossomed, and classical music witnessed golden years.
The rule of Emperor Franz Joseph I transformed the city in
many ways: culture, arts and architecture blossomed, the city
walls were demolished in 1858 to make way for the grand
Ringstraße boulevard lined lined with impressive buildings,
the city expanded to include its suburbs, and the Danube
river which caused several serious floods was canalised
and tamed.
20th century
Industrialisation of and immigration to Vienna lead to a
period of expansion. By 1910, Vienna was the sixth largest
city in the world, with large numbers of Czech and Jewish
residents. The city was a centre of the new Jugendstil style
from 1900, locally represented by Otto Wagner and the
Vienna Secession association.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire fell apart at the end of the First
World War and in 1918 the Republic of Deutsch-Österreich
(German-Austria) was created. Socialism quickly became
popular and "Red Vienna" saw many residential estates built,
but also shelling of locals supporting the socialist militia by
the Austrian Army during the 1934 civil war.
Adolf Hitler – himself an Austrian – triumphantly marched
into town and spoke from the Hofburg bal cony during
the Anschluss ('joining up') of Austria in 1938. Vienna's
thousands of Jews suffered badly, harassed by both the state
and anti-Semitic citizens, and decimated by the Holocaust.
Vienna was badly damaged in 1944 and 1945 during the
Soviet advance, but largely reconstructed in the 1950s-60s,
with the city centre proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site
in 2001. Post-war Vienna was divided into sectors ruled by
The USA, UK, France and the Soviet Union just like Berlin,
though the city centre was an international zone where
control was handed over to another power every month. The
occupation lasted 10 years, in which time spies from east
and west played their Cold War games.
Austria regained full independence in 1955, and from the
1970s Vienna became the host city of many imporetant
international organisations, including various UN agencies,
OPEC, the International Atomic Energy Agency and OSCE.
The crumbling of the Iron Curtain in 1989 profoundly changed
the city's outlook. Many companies took advantage of the
prime location and nearby Bratislava in Slovakia now forms
an economical unit of 3 million people with Vienna.

ARRIVING IN VIENNA
Vienna In Your Pocket vienna.inyourpocket.com

May - June 2012 vienna.inyourpocket.com
By plane
Vienna’s international airport is located in Schwechat, 18km
southeast of the city centre. After passing customs (for ar-
rivals from outside the Schengen zone) and collecting your
baggage, ATMs, banks and tourist information can be found
in the arrivals hall.
To get to town, there’s a choice of rail or road. The City
Airport Train (CAT, +43 1 252 50, www.cityairporttrain.
com) departs every hal f hour between 06:05 and 23:35,
arriving at S-Bahn station Wien Mitte. The ride takes 16
minutes and costs €11 for a single trip (€10 with the Vienna
Card), €17/16 for a return trip. It’s cheaper to take a regular
S-Bahn train, departing from the airport to Wien Mitte sta-
tion approximately every 30 minutes between 04:34 and
00:18; tickets cost €4 and the ride takes about 25 minutes.
Vienna Airport Lines buses (tel. +43 1 700 73 23 00, www.
viennaairportlines.at) depart every 30 minutes between
05:00 to 23:00, stopping off at U-Bahn Schwedenplatz, the
train stations Wien Meidling and Wien Westbahnhof and the
Vienna International Center (VIC), taking about 30 minutes.
A single ride costs €7, a return trip €12, and tickets can be
bought from the driver.
Taking a taxi to the centre takes about 15 minutes. If you just
hop into a waiting taxi outside, the ride will cost about €45,
including the fee for returning to the airport empty; it costs
€33 if you mention to the driver or dispatcher that you’d like
the set price (Pauschaltariff ).
By train
The new Wien-Hauptbahnhof (central station) is currently
under construction, so in the meantime trains from Prague,
Warsaw, Venice, Rome, Ljubljana, Zagreb and Graz arrive
at Wien-Meidling station, above the Philadelphiabrücke U-
Bahn station. Trains from Salzburg, Munich, Zurich, Berlin,
Frankfurt and Budapest arrive at Wien Westbahnhof, which
is conveniently built on top of the Westbahnhof U-Bahn
station. Trains from Bratislava and Burgenland arrive at the
temporary Ostbahnterminal near the new central station,
which is reached on tram D from the Ringstrasse. All these
stations have luggage lockers and ATMs, and a tourist
information desk office.
By bus
All international buses arrive at the Vienna International
Busterminal (VIB), which has ATMs and luggage lockers.
Right across the street is the Erdberg U-Bahn station, from
where it’s a 10 minute ride to the city centre.
By car
Major highways lead from Vienna west to Munich, south
to Venice, east to Budapest and north to Brno. Driving the
350km from Munich will take approximately four hours,
the 250km from Budapest are covered in three hours.
When parking in Vienna, pay attention to the short-term
parking zones in the inner districts of the city; using the
well-signposted Park & Ride facilities (€3 per day) in the
outer districts and taking an U-Bahn or tram into town is
a good idea.
By ferry
The Danube river is increasingly used for ferry routes to
Hungary, Slovakia and Germany. Ferries arrive at Anlegestelle
Reichsbrücke near U-Bahn station Vorgartenstrasse. Twin
City Liner boats dock at Marienbrücke bridge near the
Schwedenplatz U-Bahn station.
The City Airport Train departs every half hour from the city
center (U-Bahn Landstrasse/S-Bahn Wien Mitte) to Vienna
International Airport. The ride takes 16 minutes and costs
€11 for a single trip (€10 with the Vienna Card) and €17/16
for a return trip. The City Air Terminal in the city centre
offers travellers the services of an international airport
terminal. Check in your baggage up to 75 minutes before
departure, get your boarding pass and enjoy the rest of
your journey to the airport comfortably and stress-free.
The City Check-In can only be used with a valid CAT ticket.
The building complex above the train station includes
130,000m² of offices, shops and catering areas as well
as the CAT terminal, and is currently Vienna’s largest in-
ner city project development. Construction was started
in 2007 and is projected to be completed in 2012, with
CAT operating normally the entire time.

Driving & Parking
Parking in central Vienna is expensive; the 20 public garages
in the centre charge up to €5 per hour. Street parking tickets
(€1 per 30 minutes) can be purchased from news agents
(Trafiken), the offices of Wiener Linien, many petrol stations,
major train stations and by SMS on the A1 mobile network.
Day visitors to Vienna are better off using a Park & Ride
facility in the outskirts (€3 per day) and taking the tram or
U-Bahn to the city centre.
I f you plan to dri ve on Austria’s hi ghways (all A and S
roads) you’ll need a vignette sticker on your windscreen
costing €7.90 for 10 days, which can be purchased at
petrol stations.
Public transport
Vienna’s extensive public transportation system, run by
Wiener Linien (Vienna Transport Authority), is an easy
and inexpensive way to get around town. The U- Bahn
(metro) runs daily from 05:00 to 00:30, and non-stop on
Fridays and Saturdays and before public holidays. Subur-
ban S-Bahn trains radiate outwards from the city to the
surrounding districts and towns. Trams are the best way
to get around the inner city sights, running every 5-15
minutes between 05:00 and 00:30. Buses mostly serve
Vienna’s suburbs and most visitors won’t need them though
the handy night buses replace the U-Bahn from 00:45 to
05:00 on weekdays.
Tickets cost €2 for a single ride, though it’s well worth getting
a day ticket if you’re planning on using public transport more
than a few times. A 24-hour ticket costs €6,70, a 48-hour
ticket €11,70 and a 72-hour ticket €14,50; a two-stop ticket
(Kurzstrecke) costs €1. Tickets must be validated before
getting on board. Tickets can be purchased from multilingual
machines at every U-Bahn station and on buses and trams,
though single tickets bought on board cost €2,20 and only
coins are accepted. You can also visit the ticket sales of-
fices of Wiener Linien at the Stephansplatz, Karlsplatz,
Westbahnhof and Wien Mitte U-Bahn stations. The 72 hour
ticket can also be purchased at the Tourist Information Of-
fice. Children up to six years old always travel free; children
up to 15 ride free on Sundays, holidays and during Vienna’s
school holidays (photo ID required). The Vienna Card costs
€19,90 and offers 72 hours of travel on public transport plus
more than 200 discounts to museums, concerts, cafés, and
more. It can be bought at the Tourist Information Offices or
from the Wiener Linien offices.

VIENNA DISTRICTS 5
TH
DISTRICT: MARGARETEN
Vienna is truly the most international city in Austria, if not in
all of Central Europe, hosting the regional headquarters of
many international enterprises, the UN, OSCE and OPEC. In
the central districts you will have no problem communicating
in English. Vienna has 23 districts, with the 1st being the
city centre, N°2-9 wrapped around it and surrounded by
the Gürtel highway. Districts 10-23 are mainly residential
areas. Every district is attractive in its own way and equally
important, generally safe for tourists.
1. City centre
The city centre literally refers to the very heart of Vienna.
In the mid-19th century Vienna’s old city wall was replaced
by the boulevard which in conjunction with the Franz-Josefs-
Kai now forms a ring around the city centre. Magni ficent
buildings such as the state opera house, the Hofburg, the
parliament building, the Vienna city hall, the Burgtheater, the
university, the Vienna stock exchange and numerous pres-
tigious buildings line this splendid boulevard. Most 5-star
hotels as well as major sights are located here. Tourists
will spend most of their time in this area, with everything
more or less within walking distance. While Kärnterstrasse
and Graben are the two major shopping streets in the city
centre, Stephansplatz with St. Stephens cathedral is the
very centre of Vienna.
2. Prater
The ci ty’s largest park stretches from the Praterstern
metro and train station towards the Ernst Happel sta-
dium. Next to Praterstern is the Wurstelprater amuse-
ment park. Some say i t’s better to avoi d this area after
dark. Leopol dstadt in Vi enna’s 2nd distri ct used to be
the Jewish part of town. Today the j ewish communi ty is
again growing and you will find kosher bakeri es and a
number of synagogues.
3. Belvedere & Hundertwasserhaus
The third district is one of Vienna’s most desirable ad-
dresses. Several buil dings desi gned by Vienna’s most
unusual architect Friedenreich Hundertwasser, as well as
Belvedere Palace, the luxurious residence of Prince Eugene
of Savoy, are all located here. In addition, the district houses
numerous embassies and foreign missions, hence its name
– the Embassy Quarter.
4, 5, 6. Naschmarkt
This is currently Vienna’s most vibrant area with chic cafes
and people strolling past trendy stores and art galleries.
You would not want to miss out on a visit to Vienna’s central
Naschmarkt, selling all sorts of food and with amazing
restaurants and cosy cafés where many tourists and locals
enjoy a break. The Freihausviertel south of Naschmarkt in
the 4th district is the upcoming chic shopping mile. The 6th
district, north of Naschmarkt, is known for its many gay bars.
6, 7. Mariahilferstrasse area
Mariahilferstrasse is known as Central and Eastern Europe’s
most important shopping street. Since the fall of the Iron
Curtain, hundreds of buses bring shoppers from Hungary,
Czech Republic and Slovakia to Vienna’s top shopping street
to get their Christmas presents. A lot of interesting stores,
nice restaurants and relaxed bars are found strolling around
the side streets.
7, 8, 9. Gürtel area
Gürtel is the name of the highway ring that encircles Vienna’s
central districts 1-9. In the zone between Westbahnhof
station and the Danube canal, the red-light district has
developed into Vienna’s hottest nightlife spot with dozens
of clubs and bars, one after the other. Go and find a bar
that fits your taste!

wide to its varied restau-
rant scene and endless
nightli fe options, helped
by the excellent transport
l i nks. Located between
the new Vienna Central
Station and the city's largest urban market, the popular
Naschmarkt, Margareten is truly in the heart of Vienna.
Yet the former industrial and working-class district still
has affordable rents, attracting both residents and
companies, many in the service sector. You're welcome
to discover Margareten.
Kurt Wimmer, District 5 Mayor
From the District 5 Mayor
For a slice of real Vienna, forget
al l about Sacher tor te Si ssi ,
Strauss and Mozart and stroll
through vibrant, working-class
Margareten, Vienna`s 5th district.
Sandwiched between the Wien
river and the Gürtel belt road,
Margareten was split off from
Wieden district in 1861. Then still
mainly rural, it quickly changed
into a densely populated urban
area with many workers and eventually large residential
homes. In 1869 about 54,000 people lived in the district;
the population doubled to almost 108,000 in 1900, and
after the First World War many large communal housing
projects were initiated in Margareten, leading to the Gürtel
ring road being nicknamed the 'Proletariat Ring'; nowadays
an 18-metre high glass wall with solar panels protects the
inhabitants from traffic noise.
Although the district has no sights apart from the flea market,
it has some very chic corners close to Naschmarkt, impressive
historical residential buildings such as Margarethenhof and
impressive examples of 1920s 'red Vienna' architecture,
for example the residential building at Gaudenzdorfergürtel.
The part of Margareten closest to Naschmarkt is changing
fast, with new cafés and stores opening up young and
international people moving in. Students love the area for
its trendy bars, and the Wienzeile flea market every Saturday
attracts thousands of visitors; best arrive early as vendors
start packing up by noon.

Urs Fischer – Skinny Sunrise
Urs Fischer’s multimedia art, which is deeply rooted in
sculpture despite the artist’s training as a photographer,
unfolds grand gestures with a pop attitude. Born in Switzerland
in 1973 but living and working in New York, the artist grapples
with scale in a sculptural balancing act. Whether playing with
light and shadow, gravity, or materiality, Fischer’s subtle and
striking artworks engage in radical spatial interventions that
situate his work in the aesthetic tradition of artists like Francis
Picabia, Dieter Roth, and Gordon Matta-Clark.

BASICS
Crime & Safety
Vienna is a safe city to visit, and there's little to fear except
perhaps for spending too much on food and souvenirs. As
elsewhere, avoid dark alleys at night and clutch your wallet
or purse when using public transport or in busy places.
Disabled travellers
Most hotels, restaurants and sights in Vienna are well-
equipped for people in wheelchairs or otherwise requiring
assistance, and public transport is easy to use with its many
escalators, li fts and low-floor trams. The symbols below
our hotel reviews which hotels are suitable. The city has an
informative site for disabled travellers at www.wien.info/en/
travel-info/accessible-vienna.
Electricity
Austrian electrical current is 220v AC, and the country uses
the standard European round, two-pin sockets.
Money & Costs
Austria uses the euro (€) with banknotes in denominations
of €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500. Coins, whose
design depends on in which country they were minted,
come in denominations of €0.01, €0.02, €0.05, €0.10,
€0.20, €0.50, €1 and €2. ATMs can be found everywhere in
Vienna and are the best way to get cash. Vienna is not an
overly expensive city by Western European standards – and
competition from nearby cheap countries keeps the price
of for instance cigarettes at bay. Vienna´s status of a social
democratic stronghold means that public services such as
public transport are relatively cheap.
Politics
The current mayor of Vienna is Michael Häupl. Since 1917,
Vienna has been (co-)governed by the Social Democratic Party
with an absolute majority in the city parliament (except from
1934 to 1945 when the party was banned and mayors were
appointed by the Austro-fascist and later by Nazi authorities).
The Social Democrats currently rule in coalition with the Green
Party. Many political experts believe that the rival Austrian
People's Party would completely dominate Austrian politics if it
weren't for the Social Democrats' unbreakable hold on Vienna.
An example of the city’s many social democratic policies is
the low-cost Gemeindebauten residential estates which house
about 25% of the Viennese population.
Smoking
Officially all restaurants, cafés and other such venues have
to provide a non-smoking section. While recently many
restaurants turned into smoke-free zones, don’t be surprised
how smoky many bars and clubs can get. Most traditional
coffee houses will have a smoking area.
Tipping
If the service merits it, waiters appreciate a tip of about 10%;
at the bar or at the Würstelstand it's common to round up
the sum a little.
Population
Austria (2009 estimate): 8,356,707
Vienna: 1,705,080
21,1% of people living in Vienna are foreign nationals,
121,000 of them originating from former Yugoslavia,
41,000 Turks and 28,000 Germans.

The spring exhibition at the Imperial Furniture Collection
revisits the 1960s. Showcasing a selection of designer
objects, it explores the radical social, cultural, political
and aesthetic upheavals that took place from the end
of the 1950s to the oil crisis of 1973, painting a picture
of an era that put an end to the drabness of the post-
war years. ‘Anything goes’ was the motto of the design
world during that era. Utopian, alternative lifestyles were
accompanied by a fundamental change in values.
The youth-led ‘consumer revolution’ in the early 1960s
saw the rise of the teenager as consumer, synthetic
materials for low-priced mass market products and the
emergence of 'space age' design. The new fixed stars
of the design world were Italy and Britain. From the mid-
1960s the protest generation made itself heard, and
the various protests all left their mark on design - there
was a return to styles such as art nouveau, as well as
new psychedelic art and design from West Coast USA.
The exhibition presents furniture in ten sections, with
pieces by Arne Jacobsen, Eero Saarinen, Verner Panton,
Helmut Bätzner, Archizoom, Gruppo Strum and more.
Besides furniture design, there are fashion items, TV and
radio sets together with other everyday objects to convey
the typical flavour of life during those years.

Owing to a vibrant artistic community of British, Aus-
tralian and American expats, Vienna boasts a small
but active English language theatrical scene. Many of
the plays produced in these houses are also targeted
at schools, so classes of Austrian students practising
their English are relatively common. Seasons are fairly
restricted to Shakespeare and the well-trod modern
canon (think Tennessee Williams, Oscar Wilde and Neil
Simon), but enthusiastically produced.

Freihausviertel
Few of Vienna's residential neighborhoods have changed so
much in recent decades as Freihausviertel, a small pocket
of the city's fourth district bordering the historic Wiedner
Hauptstrasse and the bustling Naschmarkt, and located
just a few minute walk from the Opera House. Formerly a
neglected area with broken windows and closed businesses,
Freihausviertel has metamorphosed into one of the city's
most desirable addresses where people would be delighted
to settle down if only there were free apartments available.
Along the area's main thoroughfare -- Schlei fmühlgasse
-- posh boutiques and unique vintage stores blend with hip
restaurants and cafes; specialty shops and galleries mingle
with booksellers and champagne bars; young people enjoy
their meals and cocktails, and street festivals are held to
make this area even more appealing. A scaled-down version
of New York's Meatpacking District or London's Hoxton,
Freihausviertel today lures some of the city's most creative
businesses and boasts great plans for the future.
The Freihausviertel is just a five-to-ten-minute walk from
the city centre.
Schleifmühlgasse is the main boulevard artery of this
district. The closest major metro stop is Karlsplatz
(lines U1, U2 and U4). Trams 1 and 62 will also take you
to Karlsplatz.

classical performance venues in Vienna, the Konzerthaus also
offers a comprehensive programme of jazz, rock, contemporary
and world music, as well as lectures and discussions. Built in
1913, the building itself is relatively new by Austrian standards,
and contains four acoustically separated performance spaces,
allowing multiple simultaneous events for up to 4,000 audience
members. And, though most of its pipes are hidden from view,
the Großer Saal (or Great Hall) boasts the largest pipe organ in
Austria. Q Performances daily, times vary. Tickets €18-79, €12
for students 30 minutes prior to performances.
Musikverein B-3, Bösendorferstr. 12, MKarlsplatz,
tel. +43 1 505 81 90, www.musikverein.at. Home of the
famous Vienna Philharmonic orchestra, this concert venue
ranks among the world’s superior performance spaces.

structure’s seven venues, and hosts the traditional Vienna
New Year’s Concert, televised to an estimated audience of 50
million people worldwide. You’ll only experience the cream of
the crop here - the Vienna Boys’ Choir appears frequently in
choral works, and the stars of the classical music firmament
aspire to shine on this stage. Q Performances daily except
in mid-July, times vary. Tickets €5-79, standing room €4-6.

capital, Vienna’s Staatsoper is not to be missed. Productions
here are compellingly modern and surprisingly accessible, so

be purchased up to an hour before the performance. Bring a
scarf to mark your spot on the railing, and read along in English
on your own subtitle screen. As for the dress code, it depends
on where you’re sitting: sneakers are an absolute no-go, but
nicer jeans are passable in the upper balconies. If you spring

by more formal attire. Q Performances daily except in July and

CITY OF CLASSICAL MUSIC
Vienna has always been synonymous with music for centuries.
Some of the greatest musical figures in history lived and
worked in Vienna: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van
Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert, Johann Strauss,
Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg to name a few
of them. Writing to his father in 1781, Mozart said: “Vienna
is the best place in the world for my profession.” Because of
the importance of these musicians the tradition is maintained
in Vienna by regular concert events and festivals. Attractive
concerts are held every day of the year. But Vienna is also the
capital of the waltz. The Vienna Philharmonic's New Year's
Concert is the most famous classical concert in the world. It
takes place every year on 1 January at the Musikverein and
always ends with the Blue Danube waltz by Johann Strauss
Junior. Another fixed attraction in Austrian musical life is the
Vienna Boys Choir, one of the oldest boys' choirs in the world.
For nearly five hundred years they have been a symbol of
Austria. And, as ever, every Sunday the Vienna Boys' Choir
sing solemn mass in Vienna's Hofburg chapel, continuing a
tradition unbroken since 1498.

Klimt. The Wien Museum Collection
The Wien Museum's Klimt collection is the biggest and
most varied of its kind in the world. Incorporating all the
periods of his work, the collection spans from his days as
a student and his first major commissions in the 1880s
right up to one year before his death in 1918, including
two of his absolute masterpieces, the painting Pallas
Athene and the portrait of Emilie Flöge.

I n commemorati on of the 150th anni versar y of the
renowned artist’s birth, Vi enna is turning 2012 into a
grand, citywide spectacle dedicated to the li fe and works of
Gustav Klimt. His unmistakable style – strongly symbolist
and dari ngl y eroti c – i nspi red an expl osi ve departure
from the traditionalism of the late 19th and early 20th
century. Rejecting the aesthetic principles of the Austrian
Artists’ Society, Klimt led the establishment of Vienna’s
Secession. This museum, once ridi cul ed as a “gol den
cabbage head” and “temple of tree frogs” now graces the
back of every fi fty-cent euro coin minted in Austria, and has
remained dedicated to the exhibition of the works of young
iconoclasts for more than 100 years. Meanwhile, Vienna
has become the epicenter of a global artistic movement
known as Jugendstil, a modernist aesthetic synonymous
with Art Nouveau, and still visible in facades and fixtures
throughout Vienna.

Together wi th I n Your
Pocket, Vienna's hotel con-
cierges and receptionists
are important sources of
information for travellers.
They will also be able to
give you restaurant and
sightseeing tips, and may
book event tickets for you.
In this issue we speak with Lucas Galanulis, receptionist at
the Pentahotel Vienna (www.pentahotels.com). Mr. Galanu-
lis has always been interested in dealing with international
guests, and liked the international career perspectives
that the hotel industry offers; he worked at the Pentahotel
Braunschweig and Wiesbaden before coming to Vienna.
This makes our hotel special... The relaxed atmo-
sphere – there's no rigid reception situation; guests
are checked in right at the bar, the staff is young and
professional, so staying at our stylish hotel becomes
an experience to remember.
Strange guests’ requests... One guest unblinkingly
booked a room for himself plus his 21 cats.
Special restaurants I recommend... There's the fancy
sushi restaurant Dots, the Motto am Fluss at Schweden-
platz, and the Zum Schwarzen Kameel, one of the oldest
restaurants in Vienna which is known for its cold dishes.
Special sights I recommend... I woul d suggest
the Spanish Riding School, the Third Man tour of the
underground and sewer system, and "Am Himmel" at
the Kahlenberg; a tree circle with great view of Vienna.
Vienna In Your Pocket... Helps me with clear advice;
it's especially useful for me to recommend traditional
and classical events to guests.

Gräfin vom Naschmarkt G-3, Linke Wienzeile 14,
MKarlsplatz, tel. +43 1 586 33 89. The ‘Countess of
Naschmarkt’ is meant for those who have been partying
wild all night and who can’t wait to grab a bite. For many
years, the sketchy grub served here has nourished escapees
from Vienna’s darker side. Night-owls from police on duty to
drunk clubbers all congregate here for a greasy after-hours
schnitzel and a beer. Lately, however, the place has gone so
sour and expensive that it has a haters’ group on Facebook.

for a range of traditional Viennese food. Forgoing current
culinary trends, the chefs here focus on the simple, custom-
ary dishes of this former imperial capital - particularly their
famous Tafelspitz (boiled high-quality beef). While the food
is deliciously simple, the prices are on the expensive side.

Vienna’s cosmopolitan character is reflected by a great
range of fine international restaurants. No matter if you
are looking for an exclusive restaurant in the first district
or you want to stop by at one of the authentic Asian eater-
ies - Vienna offers something for every taste. And the good
news: compared to other European cities typical tourist
traps are relatively rare.
Austrian
Viennese cuisine stands out for its superb cakes and pas-
tries, but a wide range of other unique dishes, like Wiener
Schnitzel and Tafelspitz are also steeped in local history.
The cooking tradition here has been inspired by many cul-
tures throughout the centuries. During the 17th and 18th
centuries, Italian and French cuisine made their way into the
Viennese palate, followed by strong Bohemian and Hungarian
influences in the 19th century, creating a local cuisine both
unique and delicious.
Beim Czaak H-2, Postgasse 15, MSchwedenplatz,
tel. +43 1 513 72 15. A place that knows its Austrian
dishes, Beim Czaak has been a family business since 1928
and the attention to detail and tradition is evident from the
moment you walk in. If you are planning on dining in this
authentically rustic and relaxed restaurant, make a reserva-
tion before you go. QOpen 11:00 - 24:00. Closed Sun. G

excellent food and cosy surroundings. The lunch menu changes
every day, which lets the gastronomic geniuses in the kitchen
show off their talents. Bettelstudent is also known for its beer,
which it brews on site. Between the food and the beer, this may
very well become a staple during your stay here. QOpen 10:00

‘The cuckoo’ is a classic restaurant housed in a building
dating back to medieval times; it has a beautiful 17th-century

century vaulted ceilings. The dishes are all prepared with local
seasonal products, and the drinks list is heavy in Austrian,
Hungarian and Slovenian wines - we highly recommend trying
a bottle or two. QOpen 17:00 - 24:00. PA6G
Figlmüller B-2, Wollzeile 5, MStephansplatz, tel. +43
1 512 61 77, www.figlmueller.at. The history of Vienna’s
most famous schnitzel began in 1905, when Johannes Fi-
glmüller founded a small tavern behind the cathedral. Right
from the start, the schnitzel was what it still is today: a bit
bigger, a bit thinner and a bit crisper than the others, and
served with the classic potato salad side dish. Figlmüller is
still a lovingly run family business. Also just around the corner
at Bäckerstrasse 6. Schnitzel paradise. Q TG
Franz G-4, Preßgasse 29, MKettenbrückengasse, tel.
+43 1 585 25 57, www.franzwien.at. With red brick walls
and a wooden interior, this quaint beer pub is a favourite
among many locals, so in the evenings it may be hard to
find a seat. Franz serves a decent breakfast until 17:00 on
Saturdays and Sundays, and the best part is that all the cof-
fee (or tea) you can drink is included. QOpen 16:30 - 02:00,

Dots F-3, Mariahilferstrasse 103, MZieglergasse, tel.
+43 1 920 99 80, www.dots-lounge.com. This experi-
mental sushi restaurant is a great place to grab a bite after a

satisfying taste in your mouth, as does the fresh fish. We
recommend moving over to the similarly decorated bar after

Winter F-1, Alser Strasse 30, tel. +43 1 405 02 01.
It hardly gets more Austrian than this: old paintings, crisp
tableclothes and even fake flowers make this place feel like
a real local tavern. The food, be it schnitzel or beef goulash, is
just excellent. Anton Winter, now in his 80s, inherited the res-
taurant from his mother and has since expanded it to include
a small garden. Friendly talkative waiters still know about
old-world hospitality. Tram N°43 or 44 from Schottentor to

renowned restaurants in town, the ‘white chimney-sweep’
was founded in 1848 as one of the guild pubs of the old
Vienna chimneysweeps. The typical atmosphere originates
from the 1920s when actors, singers, painter and sculptors
discovered it. The restaurant serves classic Viennese kitch-
en, with Tafelspitz, Szegediner Gulasch, paprika chicken
and Kalbsvogerln. Ironically, nowadays it’s a non-smoking

teeth in takes hold, and you just have to abandon the fork

the orange and white clad staff will serve a steaming heap of
ribs. The restaurant´s speciality is a metre of ribs, but they
also have excellent salads. QOpen 17:00 - 24:00. PG

their steaks - enter Steakpoint. Filet, rib eye, T-bone, prime rib:
you name it, they’ve got it, and will make your steak exactly how

cuisine in this hidden courtyard restaurant just off Mariahilfer-
strasse can be best described as Asian fusion. In addition to
sushi platters, bento boxes and noodle soups, some Chinese
and Thai dishes are also served, and the reasonable prices,
including occasional half-price sushi sets, explain why it’s
hard to find a seat here at lunchtime. A cosy garden nicely
complements the small premises. QOpen 10:30 - 22:00.

city of schnitzel, Schnitzelwirt is king. Why, you ask? For all
the essential reasons: the schnitzel is to die for, the sheer
size of the thing may kill you (or at least put you into a food
coma), and the price will barely put a scratch in your wallet.

lasting tradition is a must. The Tresniewski buffet offers little
sandwiches with various toppings and egg-based spreads.

vegetarian, spicy or mild, there is an open-faced sandwich
for every taste, all priced at €1 each. 18 of these spreads
have been on their menu since 1902, and several have
been added more recently. The most popular is supposedly
bacon with egg. QOpen 08:30 - 19:00, Sat 09:00 - 17:00.

themes of the typical inn Wiener Wirtschaft. At this tavern
a wide range of rustic Viennese dishes awaits your taste
buds. Besides classics like Wiener Schnitzel or goulash,
creative seasonal interpretations of the local cuisine can
also be found on the menu. QOpen 11:00 - 23:00. T6G
Many tourists and expats, especially those from coun-
tries where it is assumed that customer is king, are
perplexed by the oddities of service in Vienna. Attitudes
here may range from extremely polite and friendly, to
professional but non-committal, to outright arrogant and
disrespectful. Locals claim that bad service has always
been common, and justify it with cultural differences and
low salary levels. Perhaps Viennese waiters simply need
to be grumpy. Whatever the reason, it's perfectly normal
to make clear if you are not pleased with the service
level. The Viennese revere their Stammkunden (repeat
customers), and even reserve tables for them without
being sure they will show up – so if you're turned away
from a restaurant or café with several empty tables
marked 'Reserviert', just demand that a table be made
available for you.
Note that the more upmarket restaurants in Vienna often
charge a 'Gedeck' service fee of about €3 per person,
which goes some way to compensate for the silverware,
bread and butter.
Tipping about 10% at restaurants and cafés is expected;
not tipping anything is regarded as unacceptable. Round-
ing up to the next euro is advised for services like taxis.

pavillion is a perfect place to stop for a coffee in the
shade on a sunny afternoon. In the evenings when
some of Vienna’s best DJs take over the decks, the

but the Bitzinger Würstelstand stands out because of its
modern design: it looks more like a fine dining establish-
ment than a simple street vendor. Unlike others, Bitzinger
also has beer on tap and a small daily menu. It’s only a
short walk away from the Burggarten, so you can down
your cold beer and sausage while enjoying the park.

maschu.at. On several occasions we have traipsed
through Vienna searching for the best place to eat falafel
and time and again, Maschu Maschu has proven to be it.
However, the pita mix, a combination of falafel and kebab
served in sandwich form, even better than the falafel. The
assortment of sauces is also stellar. Seating is limited,
but you can get everything to go. QOpen 09:30 - 24:00.
Suppenbar.at F-1, Alser Strasse 21, info@suppen-
bar.at, www.suppenbar.at. This tiny eatery run by a

and professors from the nearby university campus. The
basic menu of soups, curries and salads changes every
week, and there’s always a choice of vegetarian dishes.
The place is quite popular and often gets crowded at
lunchtime, so take-away might be a better, if not the
only option. Get there on trams N°5, 33, 43, 44. QOpen

Türkis instead. Kebab stands that sell lamb rather

Turkish specialities. Try the spicy sauce, too. QOpen

has become a neighbourhood. Particularly popular is the
weekend brunch (from 10:00-15:00) that includes a variety
of pastry, cold cuts, salads, authentic French cheeses, cere-
als and quiches. Coffee in large cups is just like in Paris, but
the jovial multilingual staff is exceptionally friendly and even

brunch. QOpen 10:00 - 23:00.

trattoria in the middle of Vienna’s posh 8th district offers
authenti c thin-crusted brick-oven pizzas, yummy fresh
salads and excellent pasta dishes. The place seems to be
immensely popular among local families, no less so thanks
to friendly staff (and we do mean it!). Be sure to make a res-

fetuccine gamberetti con zucchini. QOpen 11:30 - 23:30.
Pizza Mari H-1, Leopoldsgasse 23A, MTaborstrasse,

a block from the vibrant Karmelitenmarkt, this modern piz-
zeria spoils guests with authentic pizzas whose ingredients
are flown in from Naples. Especially the traditional marinara
and marguerita are out of this world. The waiters are at
times a bit pretentious, but for most clients what they eat
seems to matter more than who serves them. Reservations

Ristorante Diverso H-4, Mommsengasse 2, MSüdti-
roler Platz, tel. +43 1 945 10 16, www.diverso.at. The
modern look and feel of the Diverso is just the atmosphere
you need to relax with friends and family. Even more important
than the design is the food served, and in this regard the
restaurant is flying high: the mouth-watering dishes cooked
by the Sardinian chef include many great fish dishes, and
are accompanied by aromatic wines. QOpen 11:30 - 15:00,

noodles, fish and meat dishes, and a variety of bento boxes.

Tenmaya B-3, Krugerstrasse 3, MKarlsplatz, tel.
+43 1 512 73 97, www.tenmaya.at. If the traditional
entrance hasn’t convinced you that you are about to step
into an authentic Japanese establishment, the kimono-clad
waiting staff and a room with the tatami mattresses on the
floor certainly will. Delectable sushi and sashimi combina-
tions, teppan boxes, noodle dishes and other treats are sure
to satisfy your palate, but will no doubt set you back quite a
few euros. Have your corporate credit card cover this one.

wish. The mango lassi is worth trying, but unlike the buf-
fet, drinks have fixed prices. As it´s near the university,
Deewan is a favourite among students. After your meal,

Bangkok Vienna G-3, Joanelligasse 8, MKetten-

the real Thai food we crave for can probably not be found
anywhere in Vienna. Yet we applaud the ef fort of this
restaurant near Naschmarkt. The service is extremel y
friendly, and the omnipresent images of Buddha combined
with soothing Thai music create the right setting. The pad
thai was delicious and good value. Sadly, smoke pervades
even in the non-smoking section. QOpen 12:30 - 15:00,

Wrenkh and his two sons, this upmarket culinary paradise
is ample proof that vegetarian cuisine can be anything but
boring. Their vision and inventiveness never cease to amaze.
Virtually anything on the menu - soups, salads, mains, des-
serts - will be perfectly made to order and delivered with a
smile. Truth is, at least one of their dishes does contain meat
- a superb organic filet steak. But don’t we all show carnivore

Yamm! A-1, Dr. Karl-Lueger-Ring 10, MSchotten-

yamm.at. Unveiled with much fanfare in early 2011, this
psychedelic lounge near the university’s main building has
turned out to be quite a disappointment. Yes, it does offer
cool interior and some funky cocktails, but the tiny salad
bar isn’t much to write home about, and at €2.40 per 100
grams it sure doesn’t sound like a place where a penniless
student would drop by for lunch. QOpen 07:00 - 24:00, Sat,
Sun 09:00 - 24:00.
A sunny day in the city without a tasty ice cream is un-
thinkable! Another legacy of the Habsburg monarchy is
the probably highest density of Italian ice cream parlours
outside Italy. While there are a lot of places where you
can get ice cream there are especially good places you
will never forget. These are our top recommendations.
Eissalon am Schwedenplatz C-1, Franz-Josefs-
Kai 17, MSchwedenplatz, tel. +43 1 533 19 96,

Eissalon Tuchlauben B-2, Tuchlauben 15,
MHerrengasse, tel. +43 1 533 25 52, www.
eissalon-tuchlauben.at. Many Viennese say that
Tuchlauben, j ust minutes from Graben, serves the
creamiest, the freshest, and in a word, the finest ice-
cream in town. You be the judge, but we happen to agree
that most of the flavours here, particularly straciatella
(chocolate chips) and topfen-feige (cream cheese with
figs), are simply to die for, and the speciality nougat is
so sinful it should be made illegal. Expect long lines
on a sunny day.
Paolo Bortolotti E- 4, Mariahilferstrasse 22,

Vi enna is one of those ci ti es where cof fee is much more
than j ust a drink. Many cof fee houses in Vi enna date
back to the 19th century, when there was li ttl e pri vate
heating, and people used the coffee houses as a second
li ving room, because they coul d not af ford to heat their
homes.Unl i ke some other café tradi ti ons around the
worl d, i t is compl etel y normal for a customer to linger
al one for hours and study the omnipresent newspapers.
Al ong wi th cof fee, the wai ter wi l l serve an obl i gatory
glass of col d tap water and during a l ong stay will often
bring addi tional water unrequested, wi th the i dea being
that you are a guest who shoul d feel wel come and not
pressured to leave. Many cafés provide small food dishes
like sausages as well as desserts, cakes and tarts, like
Apfelstrudel and Linzer Torte. In many classi c cafés
piano musi c is played in the evenings and social events
like li terary readings are hel d.

MSchottentor, tel. +43 1 24 10 01 10, www.landt-

a definite advantage over the other coffeehouses in the
winter: despite the cold, you can still sit “outside” on the
heated glass veranda, which looks out to the Burgtheater
and the neo-classical Rathaus (town hall), seat of the city’s
government. The café specializes in seasonal and Austrian
deserts, and the excellent brews will remind you why Vienna

Simple interior of wooden furniture and a few old post-

in Southern France, but the excellent organic Galette
buckwheat pancakes, sweet and savoury crêpes and
waffles served here for breakfast are decidedly French-
inspired and will get you quite happily through the day.

HEURIGEN & WINE BARS
About 2% of Vi enna’s sur face is used for vineyards
and you can try many of these wines at Heurigen.

Tradi tionall y these places woul d onl y of fer col d cuts

plus many thirsty cli ents can be found nearby too.
Note that beer and cof fee are not usuall y served at

In the histori cal vineyards around Vi enna, wil d vines
were already growing in primeval times, and there is

looking for.
Bars
Bettel-Alm B-3, Johannesgasse 12, MStadtpark,
tel. +43 513 20 44, of fice@bettel - alm.at, www.
bettel-alm.at. Though Vienna boasts several interesting
places to spend the night carousing with friends, they all
have something in common: they are distinctly Viennese. In
contrast, the Bettelalm has a distinctly Salzburger feel to it.
From the décor to the music and the drinks, the Bettelalm
is reminiscent of après-ski and summer mountain locales
in Salzburg. QOpen Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat 21:00 - 04:00.

Vienna. Really, it’s much more than a bar. Artists have

atmosphere. The ceilings are high, which helps make this
a cosy, inviting environment. When the weather is nice,
the garden is an excellent place to enjoy the company of
friends. QOpen Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Sun 10:00 - 02:00,

worse times since it appeared on the social radar in the 1980s.
If you enjoy minimal techno and chill-out beats as background
music, Donau is your place. It’s in a location close to the Mu-
seumsquartier, which makes it a favourite among students
and young creative professionals. The prices are reasonable

in accordance with one of Loos’ driving principles: cosiness.
A tiny space, made to look larger than it is by the mirrors
mounted along the walls above the wooden panelling, has
only a handful of tables so be prepared to share with strang-
ers. The beer selection is weak and overpriced, but the
cocktails are top-notch. Quentin Tarantino apparently had a
blast here. QOpen 12:00 - 04:00, Thu, Fri, Sat 12:00 - 05:00.

QOpen 22: 00 - 05: 00.
Calling Vienna the San Francisco of Central Europe
would be somewhat of an exaggeration. Neither would
a comparison to Amsterdam, Barcelona or Berlin hold
up, for that matter. Yet, although gay life in Vienna is
quite low-key, things do happen, and for the most part,
a “live and let live” attitude seems to prevail among the
locals. The city hosts an annual GLBT Pride Parade on
the Ringstrasse, as well as a high-profile international
HIV/AIDS charity event known as the Life Ball. As for the
gay venues, most are clustered around Naschmarkt in
the 4th, 5th and 6th districts, but there are a few others
scattered around the city. Austrians aren’t usually keen
on starting conversation with strangers, so don’t be
shy unless you want to spend the evening by yourself.
Café Berg A-1, Berggasse 8, MSchottentor, tel.
+43 1 319 57 20, www.cafe-berg.at. Café Berg
has been catering to the gay, lesbian and transgender
community for the past 17 years in the same street that
Sigmund Freud once lived and worked. The café offers
breakfast well into the afternoon, and the menu changes
from week to week. Several events are held here, from
fashion shows to lively parties, and i f you want, you
can rent out the space to have your own bash. QOpen
10:00 - 01:00.
Café Savoy G-3, Linke Wienzeile 36, MKetten-
brückengasse, tel. +43 01 586 73 48, www.savoy.
at. Even in the most classical setting with huge mirrors,
an impressive antique chandelier and the soaring fresco
ceiling, there’s some truth to the saying Wien ist anders
- Vienna is different. What was once a traditional coffee
house is now a popular hangout for local gay and lesbian
community. Café Savoy is mostly frequented by mature
thirty-something men, but their female friends love to join
them here as well. QOpen 08:00 - 02:00.
Felixx A-3, Gumpendorfer Str. 5, MMuseumsquart-
ier, tel. +43 65 03 90 03 00, www.why-not.at. An
institution in Vienna’s gay scene since it was renovated
in 2004, Felixx attracts a young and hip crowd with its
funky cocktails, fresh beats and occasional events like
karaoke and drag shows. The huge crystal chandelier
in the middle of the bar reminds of the old Viennese
glass-making tradition, but otherwise the interior is quite
modern. QOpen 08:00 - 03:00.
Village Bar G-3, Stiegengasse 8, MKettenbrück-
engasse, tel. +43 1 67 63 84 89 77, www.village-
bar.at. Village Bar is mostly frequented by gay men,
although the occasional female can be seen amongst the
crowd. The clientele tends to be more on the trendy side,
which is in keeping with the design of the bar. However,
it is a nice mix of younger and older guys, so no matter
what your taste, you will find Village Bar to your liking.
QOpen 20:00 - 03:00.

this is the main place to be for young gay men in Vienna.
The two floors at Why Not? are full of beautful men,
with pop dance music and techno beats on the dance
floor. Prepare to dance all night or have a drink with a
stranger at one of the tables upstairs. QOpen 21:00 -

of its staples is a weekly pub quiz that draws a fun-loving c
rowd intent on winning the huge jackpot, which is currently
close to €3,000. If you are in the mood to sing, consider the
Rock ‘n Roll Karaoke nights, where DJ Pot, will take your song
requests so you can rock the venue like a rock star. The staff

expects in an Irish pub. Sports fans will be pleased to know

lished Irish pub in Vienna, Shebeen offers typical Irish and
British food and the usual weekly pub quiz. What sets it
apart is its live music every Friday and its popular open mic
every Sunday, where you can belt out a song. While you can
expect most big international football games to be beamed

ervation. Do not forget to order their crispy homemade fries

Europe comes to a near standstill between 8 June and
1 July as 16 countries battle it out on football fields in
Poland and Ukraine during the 2012 European Football

WHAT TO SEE
May - June 2012 vienna.inyourpocket.com
The first district, surrounded by the majestic imperial build-
ings along the Ringstrasse, is Vienna’s historical centre.
Many of the important sights, such as the impressive St.
Stephen’s Cathedral, the gigantic Hofburg, Vienna’s town
hall, and many of the main museums are located here, all
within walking distance. But a lot of essential Vienna lies
beyond it. Outlying sights, such as Schloß Schönbrunn, or
the funfair and parks of the Prater are musts for every visi-
tor. Using public transport to get to these places is easy.
Main sights
Belvedere C-4, Prinz-Eugen-Str. 27, tel. +43 1 79 55
70, www.belvedere.at. Named for the Italian phrase for
“beautiful view”, the Belvedere palace complex was originally
conceived as a summer country estate for Prince Eugene
of Savoy, one of the most celebrated military heroes in
European history. His impressive collection of artwork is dis-
played here, along with more recent additions from the royal
Habsburg holdings. The Upper Belvedere’s major attraction is
undoubtedly Gustav Klimt’s famous painting The Kiss, which
can also be seen on countless scarves, mugs, posters and
other trinkets sold by surrounding shops and street vendors.
While most visitors skip the Lower Belvedere, its collection
of curiously troubling Messerschmidt heads make the extra
few euros for a combination ticket well worthwhile. To get
here, take tram D to the Schloss Belvedere stop. QOpen
10:00 - 18:00, Wed 10:00 - 21:00. Admission €3.50-13.50.
Guides/audioguides €4/3.
Hofburg A-2, Heldenplatz, MVolkstheater, tel. +43
1 587 36 66, www.hofburg.wien.info. Home to the
Habsburg monarchy for more than six centuries, the ten
major buildings comprising the Hofburg complex represent
the splendour and influence of what was once the mightiest
empire in Europe. While this has been the site of countless
decisive historical events, the sweeping arcaded façade of
the Neue Burg earned worldwide notoriety in April of 1938,
when Adol f Hitler spoke to a crowd of 200,000 people from
its central balcony. Nearly every Austrian monarch has left
his (or her) fingerprint on the layout of this palace, result-
ing in a stylistic mishmash and a wide array of museums.
Maps in several languages are posted in the courtyards
throughout the complex, but here are the highlights: the
Schatzkammer (Imperial Treasury) houses the crown jew-
els, as well as the nail supposed to have pierced Christ’s
right hand and the so-called Spear of Destiny. I f you’re
into impressive baroque interiors, the reading room of the
Nationalbibliothek (National Library) is a highlight. For those
with a fascination for sordid dynastic family histories, a
ticket to the Kaiserappartements (Emperor’s Apartments)
includes the Silberkammer (Silver Vault) and Sisimuseum
(Sisi Museum), lending an intimate insight into the private
lives of Emperor Franz Joseph and his wi fe, Elizabeth of
Bavaria (better known locally as Sisi). The dancing white
Lippizaner horses of the Spanische Hofreitschule (Spanish
Riding School) perform here, as well as the boy sopranos
and altos of the Wiener Sängerknaben (Vienna Boys’ Choir).
But even i f you don’t have time for a museum trip, a stroll
through the Hofburg complex is a definite must. QOpen
09:00 - 18:00. Admission packages €2,50-22,50.
Hundertwasser-Krawinahaus I-2, Kegelgasse 37-
39, M1 tram Hetzgasse, tel. +43 1 710 41 16, www.
hundertwasserhaus.info. This vibrant and fanciful public
housing complex, now an iconic landmark of the work of
Austria’s own architectural iconoclast, Friedensreich Hun-
dertwasser, regularly tops lists of visitors’ favourite sights in
Vienna. As you can probably tell by the Gaudi-esque shapes
and colourful palate, Hundertwasser embraced a playful,
environmentally-focused artistic philosophy. He proclaimed
that straight lines were “godless and immoral,” that every
building should have as many trees as tenants, that rolling,
uneven floors were “a divine melody to the feet,” and that
access to a window was a basic human right. While entering
the building is not permitted (it is a private residence for 52
families and 250 trees and shrubs), the Kunsthaus Wien,
located just down Untere Weißgerberstraße, features a small
museum and café dedicated to this controversial figure. Hofburg
The Belvedere is one of the most striking and significant
museums in the world and an absolute must-see for
the visitor to Vienna. When the Imperial Collection was
opened in the year 1781, the Upper Belvedere became
one of the first museums in the world to be accessible to
the public. The Upper Belvedere – constructed between
1717 and 1723 – is positioned on a hill and affords
a captivating view of Vienna. The name Belvedere –
‘beautiful view’ – goes back to the times of Empress
Maria Theresia in whose possession the ensemble of
palace and grounds fell shortly after the death of Prince
Eugene. Since the wellknown urban landscape painter
or vedutista Bernardo Bellotto immortalised the view
in his 18th century panorama,it became known as the
famous ‘Belvedere view’.
The Belvedere owns the world’s largest collection of
paintings by Gustav Klimt, including the famed Art Nou-
veau icons, The Kiss and Judith I.
Special exhibition:
Gustav Klimt / Josef Hoffmann

Riesenrad Ferris wheel. Erected in 1897 to celebrate

reaching a height of 65 meters. It gained international
fame through the classic 1949 classic film The Third
Man when one of the cabins was the scene of a pivotal
argument between Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. A
visit to Vienna can hardly be complete without a ride on
this historic giant and the breathtaking views from the
top. Q Open Jan-Feb 10:00-19:45, Mar-Apr & Oct-Dec

DAYTRIPS DAYTRIPS
Just an hour’s drive from Vienna, the maj estic Wa-
chau Vall ey of fers an unlikel y bl end of nature and
culture, and is certainly one of Austria’s highlights.
Between quaint old towns and historic castle ruins
al ong this stretch of the Danube Ri ver, the steep,
terraced vineyards – a Unesco World Heritage Site
since 2000 - produce a distinctly Austrian variety of
white wine, known by sommeliers around the world for
its taste and aroma thanks to the local geology and
microclimate. Wine has been produced in the Wachau
for centuries, and along with large cooperatives and
more prestigious wineries, there are also a number of
smaller, old-fashioned vintners here, producing wine
like in the old days.
One of those smaller vintners is Martin Jamek. His
small cellar is carved into the hills near the village of
Joching. He learned the hard and laborious process of
winemaking from childhood and cares for just 4 hect-
ares of land, producing around 8,000 litres per year.
Even the grape pressing is done the old-fashioned way,
with a big wooden winepress, whose age is estimated
to be about 450 years old: “No one knows the exact
age, the important thing is that it still works.” Jamek
mainly produces two types of wine using Grüner Velt-
liner and Riesling grapes; the light house wine, and
the Smaragd, the finest of the Wachau wines, named
after the Emerald lizards that li ve on the terraces.
In the Jamek family's B&B, be tempted to taste his
apricot brandy.
Wachau Wine Tour
Vienna Explorer’s new Premium Wachau Wine Tour
allows visitors taste the labours of prestigious coopera-
tives and smaller family farmers as well as the varieties
of chocolate, jam, chutney and schnapps made from
another local favourite: the Wachau apricot. Tours are
conducted between 09:00 and 18:00 with a comfortable
van seating up to 8 people; participants are picked up
from their hotels.
Vienna Explorer’s Premium Wachau Wine
Tour, tel. +43 1 890 96 82, www.viennaexplorer.
com. Tickets €115.
Wachau Valley
When you've seen enough of Vienna and have an extra day
or two to spare, hop on a train or a bus and head out to the
pristine countryside of Lower Austria where you will enjoy
beautiful scenery, marvel at amazing baroque architecture,
splurge in well-equipped spas and thermal baths, unwind
in cosy cafés and restaurants on cobble-stone streets,
and taste the wine from famous century-old wineries of the
Wachau Valley. Considering Austria's reliable infrastructure
and affordability of bus and train service, you'd have no
trouble reaching any of the destinations we recommend
here. Schedules can be obtained at the website of Austrian
Railways (ÖBB), www.oebb.at. Tickets can be purchased at
the railway stations, online, or from the bus driver.
Krems
Just a one-hour ride from Vienna by train, Krems is a delight-
ful, remarkably well-preserved medieval town in the Danube
Valley. Its success as the centre of the Danube trading
route peaked in the 13th-16th centuries, but the town was
plundered during the 30 Year War in the 17th century and
never regained its commercial status. Unlike in many other
Austrian towns, the 17th-18th century baroque architecture
hasn’t really taken root in Krems, which explains why the town
still charms visitors with its unique medieval character. Start
exploring Krems at Landstraße, the city’s main pedestrian
promenade filled with cafés, restaurants and souvenir shops,
then stop by at the Town Hall (Rathaus) and wander around
the town’s numerous small squares, cobbled streets and nar-
row alleys. Visit the magnificent Parish Church, one of only a
few churches in town with the baroque interior, then continue
on to the Dominican Monastery with its museum dedicated
to the area’s long-standing tradition of winemaking. Krems
also has a more modern part, just beyond the Steiner Gate,
where the relatively new Danube University adds a younger
fresher touch to this otherwise very historic town.
Getting there: Hourly trains to Krems/Donau leave from
Vienna’s Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof (Tram D from the Opera
House). One-way fare is €13.90.
Melk and the Abbey
If there was such thing as a “national abbey”, the Melk Ab-
bey (Stift Melk) would be the one for Austria. Perched atop
the hill overlooking the Danube, this imposing Benedictine
building is so enormous it almost dwarfs the surrounding
area with its overwhelming presence. It is this magnificent
monastery that attracts thousands of tourists to the quiet
town of Melk every year. Although monks have lived here for
over 900 years, the abbey was completely rebuilt in 1732
and has since undergone several further renovations, the
most recent one was completed in 2000. Today the Abbey
belongs to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Don’t miss
the stunning Marble Hall and the Abbey Library, as well as
the strikingly beautiful Abbey Church with ceiling frescos by
Johann Michael Rottmayr. Admire fantastic views of the town
and the Danube valley from the terrace and walk around the
beautiful park with an excellent restaurant just outside the
monastery. To sweeten your perfect day, walk to the Eissalon
Ebner (Linzer Strasse 1) and enjoy a delicious ice-cream with
a postcard-pretty view of the Abbey.
Open: May-September 09.00-17.30. April and October
09.00-16.30. Entry: Adults €7.70. Guided tours in English

May - June 2012 vienna.inyourpocket.com
There are few cities in Europe where the Jewish population
has been so deeply ingrained, yet has experienced such
devastation during the persistent waves of anti-semitism and
in World War II, as Vienna. The historical, political and economic
contribution of the Jewish community into this city's past and
present can hardly be underestimated. It would suffice to say
that three of four Nobel Prize Winners from Austria were Jewish,
as were luminaries such as the father of psychoanalysis
Sigmund Freud, writers Arthur Schnitzler and Stefan Zweig,
composers Gustav Mahler and Emmerich Kalman, and the
founder of modern Zionist movement Theodore Herzl.
Jewish immigration and
Renaissance
The first mention of Jews settling in Vienna is from the 12th
century. By 1420 Jews comprised about 5% of the city's
population, but under Duke Albrecht V they were expelled
from the city, their property confiscated, and many were
brutally murdered in Erdberg outside Vienna. Later in the 15th
century they were allowed to return and establish their own
colony in Leopoldstadt, today the city's second district. The
community thrived and lived in relative peace and prosperity
until the reign of Empress Maria Theresa, who in early 18th
century introduced some laws that substantially worsened
the situation of the Jews. The laws were later repealed by
her son, Emperor Joseph II. Jewish religious life was centered
around two main synagogues. Leading politicians in Vienna,
particularly of the Social Democratic Party, were Jewish,
and they did all they could to alleviate the growing right-wing
sentiments among the city's population at the turn of the
century. Schools and theaters opened, and the first Jewish
Museum in the world was founded in Vienna in 1895.
Anti-semitism, World War II
and the Holocaust
As the Jews progressed in Viennese economic, social
and political li fe, anti-semitic feelings were formented by
many of Vienna's public officials and politicians, one of the
most radical of them being Dr. Karl Lueger, Vienna's mayor
from 1897 to 1910. Early in the 20th century, twenty-one
members of the extremely anti-semitic All-Deutsche Partei
were elected into the Austrian parliament; one of the early
supporters of this party was Adolf Hitler, who later wrote
that people like Karl Lueger had greatly influenced his views.
On 12 March 1938 Hitler marched into Vienna and held a
speech from the balcony of the Hofburg Palace, kicking off
the most tragic period for the Jewish community. Aryan laws
were soon enacted; Jews were deprived of their civil rights,
were not permitted to own land or hold public office. On
Kristallnacht, 9 November 1938, angry residents driven by
the Nazi party torched Jewish businesses and synagogues.
About 6,000 Jews were apprehended and sent to the camp
at Dachau that day. Following the Wannsee Conference of
1942, Jews were stripped of their citizenship and mass
deportations to concentration camps ensued. The Jewish
community in Austria which had counted over 200,000 in
1938, was all but decimated. More than 130,000 Jews
were forced to leave the country and about 65,000 were
murdered. Less than 1,000 Jews survived the catastrophe.
The Jewish community today
It took Austrian society almost fifty years to come to terms
with their less than glamorous role in the Holocaust. Traces of
anti-semitism continued to be popular until the 1980s, and can
still be felt to this day. Not until 1991 did the government finally
JEWISH VIENNA JEWISH VIENNA
issue an official statement acknowledging their role in the Third
Reich. Meanwhile, the Jewish population of Vienna has been
growing since 1950s, primarily due to immigration from Eastern
Europe, the former Soviet Union and Iran. Today it stands at
about 14,000 people, with nearly 8,000 of them members of
the Jewish religious community. Vienna has fifteen synagogues,
a few Jewish schools, several kosher stores and restaurants
and a number of Jewish newspapers and magazines.
Jewish sights
The recently renovated Jewish Museum of Vienna is one
of the largest in Europe and has two locations in the city
centre; at Dorotheergasse and Judenplatz. The Stadttempel
at Seitenstettengasse is the only synagogue to survive
the war and is open to visitors on guided tours only. Other
Jewish sights include the Theodore Herzl Stiege – the
stairs named after the father of Zionism – as well as the
monument to the victims of Gestapo at Morzinplatz. The
Errinern für die Zukunft project ('Remember for the Future')
exhibits numerous smaller memorial signs and sidewalk
plaques commemorating the Jewish residents of these
neighbourhoods who were deported and murdered in the
concentration camps. The Simon Wiesenthal Documentation
Center has information on the Austrian role in the Holocaust
and the anti-Nazi resistance movement. The city's Jewish

The Sigmund Freud Museum
Berggasse 19 in Vienna’s ninth district has become one
of the world’s most famous addresses: Here is where
Sigmund Freud lived and worked for 47 years until he
was driven into exile in 1938. Pioneering works such as
“The Interpretation of Dreams” were written in the study.
In these rooms, the Sigmund Freud Museum presents an
exhibition documenting the life and work of the founder
of psychoanalysis with unique film material depicting the
Freud family and original objects and furniture from Freud’s
belongings.

Sigmund Freud, one of Vienna’s most prominent Jewish
intellectuals, lived and worked at Berggasse 19 between
1859 and 1938. He's now recognized as the founder of
modern psychology, but when he was in Vienna, Freud's
career as a researcher and theorist was heavily marked
by confrontation and opposi tion due to the strong
anti-Semitic attitude in Viennese politics and society.
Consequently, Freud did not enjoy much local recogni-
tion for his work on psychoanalysis, which was held in
low regard and labelled as a 'Jewish science', and his
career at the University of Vienna stagnated crumbled.
After the annexation of Austria in 1938 he fled to London,
but despite the constant ostracism he experienced in
Vienna, he always longed for his former home.

What to see
Brandenburger Tor Pariser Platz, Mitte, MS/U
Brandenburger Tor. Berlin’s landmark monument is one
of 14 city gates completed in 1792 by Carl Langhans. Nike,
the goddess of victory, drives the four-horsepower chariot
atop the gate. German armies used to begin their parades
here, the fascists spoiled the gate by staging their torch-lit
parades through it, the war badly damaged it, and then the
Wall essentially bricked the patched-up gate in for decades.
Berliners celebrated the Wall’s fall in 1989 by standing on
it in front of the gate, and after renovations the gate is the
proud focus point of the renewed square again.
Gendarmenmarkt Markgrafenstraße, Mitte, MU
Französische Straße. Twin cathedrals-turned-museums
(dating to the early 1700s), the Konzerthaus (from 1818,
by Carl Langhans) and a row of luxury hotels make up this
classic square. The name stems from the mid-1700s when
military regiments were stationed here. The Deutscher Dom
is home to a museum on the development of the German
Parliamentary system, not dull at all if you’re a politics buff.
You’ll have to read German or French to enjoy the exhibit in the
Französischer Dom on the contributions of French Huguenots
to Berlin’s development, beginning in the late 1600s.

VAT on these items refunded, minus a commission. For

Fashion
While Vienna definitely has no shortage of major brand
names featuring both extravagant luxury collections and
informal street-style fashion, we thought that rather than
listing the ever-present Benettons, H&Ms and Zaras of the
world, we would direct you to some of Vienna’s numerous
hidden treasures that sell unique items not to be found on
every street corner in every other city. Most of the shops
mentioned here are located in the city’s up-and-coming
districts where trendy style-conscious people live and work
- Freihausviertel, Naschmarkt and Neubau.

American shoe brand Red Wing Shoes, colourful jackets
by Carhartt, sunglass collection by Sheri ff & Cherry, un-
conventional Swedish designer socks named Happysocks,

Forever 21 B-2, Kärntnerstrasse 9, MStephans-

is hopping across the Atlantic and landing in Vienna with a
huge splash. Two giant new stores full of gorgeous cloth-

for young women, but some items for men will also be
available. Austria will be only the third European country
after the UK and Ireland where this cool and trendy fashion
brand will set up shops.
When it comes to shopping, the Vienna scene really runs
the gamut from large fashion chains to small boutiques,
from designer labels to offbeat artisans. The sheer variety
of retailers merits an extended shopping tour, but for
those with something more specific in mind, we’ve got a
few recommendations on where to start.

devotees go as much to see as to be seen.
Mariahilferstrasse F-3, MZieglergasse. The
long street running between Vienna’s sixth and seventh
districts is home to major international chains offering
clothing, music, house wares, and practically everything
else. Tucked into the side streets you’ll find smaller bou-
tiques and unique local labels, especially in the narrow
cobbled streets of the Spittelberg, just up Stiftgasse,
behind the Museum Quarter.
Naschmarkt G-3. Derived from the German verb
naschen, meaning “to nibble”, Vienna’s largest open-air
market truly earns its moniker. The colourful fruit and
vegetable stalls are interspersed with gourmet cheese,
meat and ethnic food vendors, all offering up samples
of their products to passers-by. If you’re looking for a
shopping experience for all five senses, this one is a
must. At the market’s southwest end, Austria’s largest
Flohmarkt (Flea Market) sets up shops every Saturday
morning, offering second-hand clothing, an array of
unusual items, and antique treasures for expert bargain
hunters who show up early.

Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, the second
oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe, was founded in
1718. Te “white gold” from Vienna has been lovingly
moulded and shaped, glazed and painted by hand ever

just unique now as it was then.
Design and artistic value reflect collaboration with
generations of well-known artists. Augarten upholds

respected designers of our day.

ORBIT Design Marco Dessi 2010
Orbit (lat. orbita “tracks”) is in the aerospace the sphere of an object over a
celestial body. Eight planets are circling around the sun – Mercury, Venus, Earth,
Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Te service Orbit consists of eight peaces and is a commissionable work for the
Viennese porcelain manufactory Augarten. It is not a classic service as such; every
part of this system is like the planets in its own dimension. Te user can utilize
every part of the service very functional. Te combined and creative elements
of this porcelain series is the unglazed, silky smooth polished boarder, which
every part of this service has. Tis board will be polished after the glaze firing by
1380°C with corundum bricks and rubber. Due to this polishing this service is
very smooth and less sensitive to dirt; in addition it has a semi matt surface and is
therefore a contrast to the elegant glazed porcelain.
Marco Dessi about Orbit:
Te phase of development during the production sequence was intensively studied, in
order to experiment on the different design options. Te rough copy
should trash out the different technical possibilities of a manufactory
as well as of the porcelain technicians.
Te target was to develop a service, which is suitable for every day,
versatile and contemporary, but on the other hand it should reflect the
charm and the intelligence of a traditional company. Te polishing of
the plates and of the boards of cubs is a normal productions stage. At
Orbit this step was particularly captured. Te board will develop to a
fine semi matt polished band, which will be a contrast to the glazed
surface. Terefore this pattern is fully embedded in the production
flow. Playing with the materials of porcelain draws through to the
whole service and therefore gives it a unique touch.

A new Flagship store in the heart of Vienna – Spiegelgasse 3 –
close to “Graben” – one of Vienna’s most luxury shopping areas – has
been opened in 2011.
Philipp Bruni – the designer – who created the Pinocchio tumbler vase
for Augarten – designed this new store as a Design Hot Spot.
A perfect combination of materials like fine wood, leather, glass and a
floor made of steel - makes this shop extraordinary. Te Manufactory
goes straight ahead into the Design Future of handmade Porcelain…
Pinocchio
Pinocchio has a long nose. He is an adventurer. If he
falls down, he immediately gets up. He is a tumbler. He
is definitely cheeky: if he gets nudged he nudges as well.
But he is always cheerful, unpretentious and likeable:
Pinocchio with the long nose. His daddy is Philipp Bruni,
not Gepetto, and he is a designer. Pinocchio is not carved
of wood but of porcelain - the most precious, handmade
Viennese porcelain from Augarten. Now Pinocchio goes
Billard – the team leader in pure white and his 15 friends
are ready to play with colours and numbers.

EXPAT VIENNA EXPAT VIENNA
So you' ve deci ded to settl e down i n Vi enna; perhaps
you've met your sweetheart here, or have been dispatched
to work here by your boss. Whatever bri ngs you to
this ci ty, do keep in mind that j ust as anywhere else,
you'll be confronted by both pros and cons of living in a
foreign country and in a di fferent cultural environment.
Whil e Vi enna has l ong been a cosmopoli tan ci ty wi th
headquarters of major international organizations, such
as the UN, OPEC or OSCE, and it does have a sizeable
expat population, you will still be facing certain dilemmas
ranging from how to find an apartment, where to send your
children to school, and not least important, how to make
yoursel f comfortable and find a circle of friends here. We
have assembled some useful information for you, and
while it is by no means all-inclusive, we believe that it will
help you make a good start.
To the benefit of Vienna, it is one of the easier cities to live
in for several reasons:
• It has one of the highest standards of living in the world
and has continuously been rated the best place to live by
Mercer and other rating agencies;
• It boasts excellent infrastructure. Public transport is quite
affordable and runs on time, and the city streets, for the
most part, tend to be kept clean and safe;
• Vienna has good healthcare system although you should
expect somewhat longer waiting times to see a specialist
than, for instance, in the US. Family physicians are usually
quite accessible and you don't normally have to wait long.
For EU citizens, healthcare is available via pan-European
e-card;
• It has countless opportunities for cultural and intellectual
fulfilment and features a number of world-class museums,
theatres and opera houses;
• Vienna's greenery and recreational areas are meticulously
mai ntai ned and the ci ty has vast opportuni ti es for
exercising and sports;
• Although Vienna is quintessentially a German-speaking
city, language shouldn't be a serious problem. Many locals,
particularly of the younger generation, have a superb
command of English and are willing to use it. That said,
don't expect every corner baker, hairstylist or plumber
to understand you, try to pick up some useful phrases in
German before you arrive or sign up for a language course
when you are here.
Yet, despite those numerous advantages, it's not that
everything is hunky-dory in this city, and there are certain
bumpy areas you should beware of:
• Vienna is a costly city to live in. Food, especially that of
high quality, tends to be on the pricey side, as are most
services and utilities. Although not quite as outrageous as
in London or Paris, living in Vienna is substantially more
expensive than in cities like Berlin or Prague;
• Finding a suitable place to live in might be your biggest
challenge. Due to extreme shortage of prime real estate,
many apartments in Vienna tend to be old, unfurnished
and seriously overpriced. Furthermore, 95% of property
is rental, so buying an apartment, should you wish to do
this, may prove nearly impossible, especially for non-EU
residents (unless, of course, you are an oil tycoon or a
famous opera star);
• Al though they are used to forei gners (and perhaps
exactl y for that reason), the Vi ennese don' t usuall y
accept outsiders with open arms, which explains why
making friends in this city may turn into an uphill battle.
It certainly helps to have a sizeable expat and immigrant
community, but the truth is that no matter how long you
have stayed in Vienna and how well you've mastered
German, you will be reminded time and again that you
are a foreigner here.
• For many expats, especially those coming from English-
speaking countries, impersonal and often sloppy customer
service in Vienna can be a bitter pill to swallow (see our
Snooty Service box). Since there isn't much we can do to
change it, just take it in stride and get used to it. After a
while, it simply becomes another routine.

Living and working abroad has become an issue for an
increasing number of people. In today’s world, mobility
is indispensable for both companies and employees.

into Vienna has increased steadily. At present, around
20,000 highly-quali fied international employees are
working in the Austrian capital. In order for expatriates
and their families to get off to a good start, the Expat
Center Vienna was brought into being by the City of Vi-
enna and the Vienna Business Agency. Whether it's your
first time in Vienna, if you have experience living abroad
or if you only just preparing for your great adventure, the
Expat Center Vienna is your central point of contact. It
offers free counseling and support with all of the issues
related to your professional and private start in Vienna.

FOREWORD
With spring now fully and gloriously upon us, and perhaps soon summer too, we can all kick off our shoes and rediscover the lush feeling of grass tickling our toes. Vienna's parks offer just this experience, but there's more – what about looking up Vienna's coolest summer park cafés; we've listed them for you on p.29. The locals are delighted with the warmer weather, and the so-called 'Schanigarten season'; the reopening of the café terraces. When it comes to culture, Vienna's wonderful Klimt Year just keeps on going, with several exhibitions to choose from; see p.21. There's more to Austria than Vienna, and it's easy to escape the city for a day; to visit the unique Gugging Museum (p.44), for example, for for a trip to the wonderful vineyards in the picturesque Wachau valley (p.48). This edition of Vienna In Your Pocket additionally has information about the working-class 5th district of Margareten and suggestions for where you could go to watch the Euro 2012 football matches. Whatever you do this spring and summer, let us know about any tips or comments you may have, via vienna@inyourpocket.com. Enjoy Vienna.

HISTORY
Greeting from the mayor
Vienna is a city of dreams. A city full of li fe, economic vitality, efficient transportation, numerous modern buildings and architectural gems. A city that offers people work and the youth a wide range of opportunities. Vienna is also the city of green parks, calm, dreamy alleys, art and music. This city attracts people. Vienna is growing; life © Stadt Wien/PID, can be felt on every corner and Photo: Hubert Dimko in every street. Vienna is rightly deemed a city worth living in, a model of providing medical and social benefits. Hardly any other city in the world is as closely tied to both medical tradition and medical advances as Vienna. As the headquarters of international agencies such as OPEC, the UN and the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna is also a cosmopolitan city of culture and gastronomy - just as the “Vienna School of Medicine” became an international term, so too has Viennese cuisine gained an international reputation. Simply put, Vienna is the perfect mix: street art and the State Opera are just as much a Viennese pair as the Heuriger and first class cuisine. Internationally acclaimed exhibitions in the Albertina or the Museumsquartier are just as much a part of us as an improvised stage in the outer districts or the film festival at Rathausplatz, Europe’s biggest open air cinema. The rich spectrum of cultural offerings makes Vienna a leading cultural metropolis; one often hears the term “international capital of music” connected with it. On the one hand, there are the many composers and musicians who have lived and worked in Vienna over the past few centuries. On the other, there are the Viennese music institutions with their grand tradition, which constantly keep this reputation fresh and carry it forth into the world. In the best tradition of the many Viennese markets, I can only say: have a look around! Welcome to Vienna!

Antiquity
Founded around 500 BC, Vienna was originally a Celtic settlement. By 15 BCE, the town had developed into a Roman frontier city called Vindobona, protecting the Roman Empire from Germanic tribes.

Medieval times
During the Middle Ages, Vienna became the residence of the Habsburg dynasty in 1440 and eventually grew to become the capital of the Holy Roman Empire.

Beleaguered by Ottomans
On their march towards western Europe, the Ottoman armies were twice stopped at Vienna in the 16th and 17th centuries. During the 1529 Siege of Vienna, the city was lucky to escape defeat and was saved by an early winter and epidemics. A century later, the city's fortifications had been greatly expanded proved their worth during the 1683 Battle of Vienna, when they helped the city survive for two months, allowing the army led by Polish King Jan Sobieski to assemble and defeat the Ottomans for good.

Cover story
The 1950s Volksgarten Pavillon near Heldenplatz is one of several excellent leaf-shaded places to go and watch spring slowly turn into summer, with a coffee or beer in hand. See our listings of summertime hotspots on p.29.

18th century
Baroque was the style of the century and hundreds of buildings were constructed or remodelled in the curly Baroque look by architects like Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. The local nobility started constructing palaces in the – now safe – countryside immediately outside the city, resulting in several magnificent summer palaces, such as Palais Liechtenstein and Schönbrunn.

Editorial

19th century
Vienna became the capital of the huge Austrian Empire in 1804, and later of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, playing an important role in European and world politics. The arts blossomed, and classical music witnessed golden years. The rule of Emperor Franz Joseph I transformed the city in many ways: culture, arts and architecture blossomed, the city walls were demolished in 1858 to make way for the grand Ringstraße boulevard lined lined with impressive buildings, the city expanded to include its suburbs, and the Danube river which caused several serious floods was canalised and tamed.

Adolf Hitler – himself an Austrian – triumphantly marched into town and spoke from the Hofburg balcony during the Anschluss ('joining up') of Austria in 1938. Vienna's thousands of Jews suffered badly, harassed by both the state and anti-Semitic citizens, and decimated by the Holocaust. Vienna was badly damaged in 1944 and 1945 during the Soviet advance, but largely reconstructed in the 1950s-60s, with the city centre proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. Post-war Vienna was divided into sectors ruled by The USA, UK, France and the Soviet Union just like Berlin, though the city centre was an international zone where control was handed over to another power every month. The occupation lasted 10 years, in which time spies from east and west played their Cold War games. Austria regained full independence in 1955, and from the 1970s Vienna became the host city of many imporetant international organisations, including various UN agencies, OPEC, the International Atomic Energy Agency and OSCE. The crumbling of the Iron Curtain in 1989 profoundly changed the city's outlook. Many companies took advantage of the prime location and nearby Bratislava in Slovakia now forms an economical unit of 3 million people with Vienna.

20th century
Industrialisation of and immigration to Vienna lead to a period of expansion. By 1910, Vienna was the sixth largest city in the world, with large numbers of Czech and Jewish residents. The city was a centre of the new Jugendstil style from 1900, locally represented by Otto Wagner and the Vienna Secession association. The Austro-Hungarian Empire fell apart at the end of the First World War and in 1918 the Republic of Deutsch-Österreich (German-Austria) was created. Socialism quickly became popular and "Red Vienna" saw many residential estates built, but also shelling of locals supporting the socialist militia by the Austrian Army during the 1934 civil war.
