In the centre of the city of arts and culture: Vienna

Only a 20 minute walk or three subway stops away from the city centre, the design hotel “Der Wilhelmshof” is centrally located.

St. Stephan’s Cathedral in the heart of Vienna

The St. Stephan’s Cathedral is right in the heart of Vienna. You will always find a bunch of Viennese citizens, tourists, street vendors and street artists around the cathedral. Most of Vienna’s city centre is pedestrianized which is perfect for shopping and strolling the streets. There is a multitude of shops offering luxurious items and fashion, finest cuisine, antiques, curiosities and much more. You reach the St. Stephan’s Cathedral quickly by taking subway line U1.

Vienna’s Ringstraße – Magnificent buildings and monuments

The buildings along the Ringstraße were built in the so called “Ringstraßenstil”, meaning this street characterized its own kind of Historicism style. Along the street, you will find the Votivkirche, the Vienna University, the Parliament, the Town Hall, the Popular Theatre, the Hofburg Castle and the Heldenplatz, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts (the Museum Quarter situated behind these museums) and the Vienna State Opera.

Shopping in the heart of Vienna

The Graben is of Vienna’s most popular and prestigious streets. No wonder, the Graben used to be one of Vienna’s most exclusive shopping streets already back in the days of monarchy, as it is located so close to the Hofburg. We recommend also a trip to the elegant Kärntner Straße.

Viennese Coffee Houses

If you want to try some of the delicate Viennese treats and need to gain new energy, you will find an ample choice of genuine, traditional coffee houses and pubs within the city centre.
The historic Hawelka Café is one of the last remaining places where writers and artists meet. It is popular among celebrities such as André Heller, Helmut Qualtinger, H. C. Artmann, Alfred Hrdlicka, Maximilian Schell and Ernst Fuchs and some of them still come to Hawalka. The Austrian musician Georg Danzer even dedicated a song to the Hawalka Café.
The traditional confectioner K.u.K Hofzuckerbächerei Demel has a proud, century-old history. Even Emperor Franz Josef and his spouse Empress Elisabeth (commonly known as Sissi), were among Demel’s customers and had the delicate Demel sweets delivered into the Hofburg Castle. You can enjoy the traditional, fancy cakes and other world-famous Viennese treats in the splendid rococo salon.

Wiener Hofburg- the Imperial Palace

Until 1918, the Habsburgs resided in the Imperial Palace, but since 1945, it houses the President of Austria. Vienna is world-famous and internationally renowned for the beautiful snow-white Lipizzan horses. The splendid Viennese Riding School in the Imperial Palace has been an institution for classic equestrianism for over 400 years.

The Viennese Ringstraße is now, where once the town wall used to be. Numerous public parks and gardens such as the Sigmund-Freud-Park, Rathauspark, Volksgarten, Burggarten and the Stadtpark are located around the Ringstraße. The ideal starting point for a tour is the Schottentor – just take the subway line U2 from the Viennese design hotel “Der Wilhelmshof”. If you want to get a general idea of the city, we recommend taking the tram at the Wiener Ring as this provides a unique opportunity to see the city centre with all its splendid buildings and monuments.
