City Guide

Step-by-Step Walks

With the help of a number of walks - all of which start here at our hotel - we would like to show you just how centrally you will be staying and which highlights are within walking distance.

Just a few steps from the hotel, where Vienna nurtures its love for its historical past, you discover the full glory of this former centre of imperial majesty.

The world-famous beauty of ornate architecture has lost none of its effect even today. With every step you take, you encounter testimony to a glorious era interspersed with cultural hot spots of the present.

Vienna for Beginners

We begin our walking tour at the hotel and head for our first destination – St. Stephen’s Cathedral. On the way there, we will pass the Kirche Am Hof and Goldenes Quartier. Continuing along the Graben we reach St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the emblem of Vienna. Now we stroll along the Kärtnerstraße past the numerous exclusive shops in the pedestrian zone, which eventually brings us to the State Opera. Passing the Albertina, famous for its world-famous collection of graphic art, we are greeted by Hofburg Palace, including the Spanish Riding School, the Redouten Halls where congresses, political summit meetings and, in winter, many traditional balls are held, as well as St. Michael’s Church. Walking beneath the Michaelerkuppel dome, we come to the treasury, the Sisi Museum and eventually Heldenplatz square.

Standing directly opposite on the far side of the Ring are the Art- and Natural-History Museums. Continuing along the Ringstraße, we walk in front of parliament, the city hall and come to the Burgtheater. Here, we turn back to the Freyung once again, passing the Schottenstift and Schottenkirche, one of the most popular churches in Vienna to get married. Just a few more steps further down the Tiefer Graben, and we find ourselves back at the hotel.

Schönbrunn and Belvedere Palaces are easy to reach using public transportation or tour buses. A visit to the Naschmarkt marketplace complements this tour marvelously.

3-Minute Tour – Highlights close to the hotel

The first thing you see on your right-hand side, as soon as you step out onto the street, is the “Hohe Brücke”, a beautiful Jugendstil bridge designed by Otto Wagner, though its foundations are actually chronicled all the way back to the 13th century.

The Kunstforum, which is just a few steps to your left, continuously presents exhibitions focused on paintings of classical modernism and the post-war avant-garde. The Freyung and the Platz Am Hof are the site of weekly markets with products from regional farms. Palais Ferstel on the Freyung is also well worth a visit, the site of a culinary district that is also home to fine delicatessens.

Other sights just 3 minutes from the hotel include Judenplatz square with the Shoah Memorial and the Gothic church of Maria am Gestade. From Maria am Gestade, you are just a stone’s throw from the stock exchange.

Walk in the Palais Quarter

The starting point for this tour is, as always, the hotel. We will head in the direction of the Platz am Hof. You are now on the Kohlmarkt, the famous shopping street. One end of this meets up with the Graben and the Tuchlauben, while the other brings us to Michaelerplatz square. Here, a quarter filled with many cosmopolitan and chic eateries has developed. Fans of shopping aren’t “short-changed” here either. All the most famous designers are represented in the “Goldenes Quartier”.

Further to the north, we will come to the Hoher Markt, one of the oldest squares in Vienna, built upon the ruins of a former encampment for Roman legionaries. The magnificent Jugendstil anchor clock, which spans the north-eastern arm of the Hoher Markt leading to the Bauernmarkt, is a famous attraction. For refreshments, stop by the newly opened Hard Rock Cafe Wien, located just around the corner.

Tip for Sports-Loving Guests

From here at the hotel, you are just a short walk from the Donaukanal. This is an ideal route for a run or bike ride.

From the Schwedenplatz boat dock on the Donaukanal, you can ride the Twin City Liner hydrofoil down the traditional waterway, reaching Bratislava, Slovakia, in barely 80 minutes.

3 minutes’ walk from the hotel is Health & Fitness Club Holmes Place. Our guests can take advantage of the fitness and wellness facilities there for a special price of just EUR 15 (tanning studio, massages and all special treatments are not included)

 We would certainly choose the BW Das Tigra hotel in our next visit in Vienna
