Whilst you’re here…
We have picked out 5 of the top tourist destinations and sights below as suggestions for you to visit whilst you’re in town for Risk & Compliance 2019!
- Wiener Riesenrad
Standing proudly at the entrance to Prater park, the Riesenrad Ferris wheel is to Vienna what the London Eye is to London. Built in 1897, the landmark starred in the 1940s thriller The Third Man, and a ride in one of its 15 stately gondolas really feels like stepping back in time. At more than 200ft tall, there’s no better way to see Vienna than from the top of this grand old lady – although, if you’re not keen on heights, you’re probably better off sticking to the trams.
Built in the 16th-century, this open-air market feels like a cross between the old Covent Garden and Dinerama. Taste your way around Vienna’s diverse culinary history as you work through everything from barrels of sauerkraut to shawarma and sabich Tel Aviv-style at Neni Am Naschmarkt. And trust us: go hungry! Whatever your tastebuds are calling for, you’ll find it here. Plus it’s a great place to stock up on edible souvenirs like cheese, wine and sausages. Just remember to get cash out before you head in.
- The Hofburg Palace
Back when Austria had an empire, the ornate Hofburg Palace was its beating heart. Today it’s the official residence of the country’s president, as well as being home to many of Vienna’s top museums and galleries.
- The Palmenhaus
Taking up most of one side of the pretty Burggarten park, this might just be the world’s grandest greenhouse. Home to towering trees and plants from around the world, the Palmenhaus doubles up as a restaurant and bar, serving Austrian specialities like schnitzel as well as lighter Mediterranean bites and cocktails.
- >Café Central
Vienna’s most venerable cafe commands a queue to rival any London hotspot. Opened in 1876, it’s always been a favourite with brainy locals (Trotsky used to read the papers here, don't cha know), and its cathedral-like domed ceilings and accomplished patisserie selection are just as much of a draw now as they were then.
