Vienna is beautiful all year round, but during fall and spring I always feel like it got some extra bit of sparks. Since spring is long past and the next one not really around the corner, I am focusing all my vienna-love on fall. It’s only the end of september but when strolling around town you can already see the leaves turn and slowly but steady the whole city is going to turn golden. For me, fall is always a time of new beginnings. It’s the start of the new semester at uni and I usually return to vienna from my summer in Upperaustria or abroad. This time of the year I always feel like I’m full of energy ,zest for action and ready to conquer the world.
So far I loved every single fall in vienna, there is so many things to do and after the hot summer days where you basically spend all your time either inside (where there is air conditioning) or at some kind of beach or swimming pool, the temperature is perfect again to stroll around town all day and actually DO things. 🙂
So, today (and since it’s sooo much, probably in my next post 😉 ) I’m going to let you know what kind of things I love to do on a saturday in Vienna.
First thing I’m thinking about on a saturday morning is „Where do I want to go for Breakfast?“ Viennas breakfast and brunch scene is booming in the last few years. I usually check blogs like Die Frühstückerinnen or various Instagram accounts (Breakfastinvienna, Viennaeats) to get inspired. Since I’m vegetarian I don’t really go to traditional Cafés, but instead love to go to modern, mostly young ones. They always have something for me on their menue! 😉
Some of my absolute favorites are:
Ulrich Cafe (they even give you blankets, so you can still sit outside and enjoy the unique charm of the Ulrichsplatz.)
Das Augustin ( they have a house cat that , when you’r lucky, comes up to you so snuggle a bit while you are there.)
Neni am Naschmarkt (Naschmarkt is always a good idea! 🙂 )
Motto am Fluss (great location, but make sure to make reservations)
Next stop usually includes a park stroll, my absolute favorite is the Augarten, I love walking around those gorgeous alleys, looking at the Flaktürme.
Since it’s saturday and the shops are open, I always take some time for (window)shopping. The main shopping streets in vienna are usually crazy packed on saturday, so I avoid those and instead explore smaller streets. There are so many unique and awesome little shops all over vienna. Some of my favorite discoveries lately are the neighborhood around the westlicht museum. I totally fell for all the vintage camera shops around this area , especially the Leicashop I also love browsing through book shops like the Walther König.
For my daily afternoon coffee ( I’m Viennese, I can’t go without a coffeebreak at least once every afternoon) I have a few places I absolutely love. On top of my list is the Pure Living Bakery ( Best cappuccino ever, and they even make the foam look like a teddy bear!) and the coffee pirates ( their coffee is absolutely amazing and they have a huge coffee mill in the middle of the room).
After my (by then badly needed) caffeine dose, I’m ready for some culture, history or art. Thankfully vienna has plenty of those to offer! 🙂 There are so many museums and art galleries in vienna, that I haven’t had time to visit them all yet, but my latest favorites are the Westlicht and the 21erHaus.
More in my next post! 🙂 For more vienna pictures:
