THE SOUND OF an inspiration

The first thing you see on the right-hand side as soon as you step out onto the street is the "Hohe Brücke", a beautiful art nouveau bridge designed by Otto Wagner, who established and characterized art nouveau in Vienna. If you continue, you will come to the Gothic church Maria am Gestade.

Just a few steps the the left outside of our hotel is the Kunstforum with impressive exhibits ranging from classical modernism to the avant-garde of the post-war era. During various seasons, the Freyung offers markets with original foods from all over Austria. Speaking of food: Palais Ferstel offers a vast array of richly flavorful delicacies.

Right behind the hotel is the Judenplatz square with the Holocaust Memorial.

THE SOUND OF the imperial Vienna

Vienna is a city with a history revolving around more than just the Habsburgs. As the center of Europe's largest multi-ethnic state, this metropolis of the monarchy was also the seat of the aristocracy for the most part. Thus arose a variety of grand inner city palaces, which in terms of magnificence and gracious accoutrements were in no way inferior to the larger palaces outside the city. The so-called Palaisviertel includes precious gems worth of seeing right by your hotel: Das Tigra. The square on Am Hof with the Kohlmarkt is one of the finest shopping streets in the city. Even during the time of Vindobona, a Roman military camp, trade and commerce were conducted here. Only the name remained from the former main product of trade: the Kohlenmarkt ("coal market") that was once a site of trade for charcoal merchants has now become the Kohlmarkt with all kinds of luxurious commodities. Another gem is the Tuchlauben, where you will find chic and sophisticated shops. The new Goldenes Quartier (Golden Quarter) will also encourage you to keep your credit card handy. This is where the pioneers of design have their shops. On the Hoher Markt is the Ankeruhr, an art nouveau jewel. Via the farmer's market, you will reach a bar and pub district, which includes the Bermudadreieck or Bermuda Triangle… it got its name, because people tend to mysteriously go missing late at night here, but have no fear! These supposed missing people do not get abducted by aliens, they simply forget the time and get caught up in the atmosphere of live music and good drinks. Or it could be that people merely linger in Vienna's oldest church, St. Rupert's Church, and simply get lost in its fascinating history.

THE SOUND OF your fitness

If you are someone who has to walk a lot, there is no better way to prepare than running. The Danube Canal, only a few meters from the hotel, is excellently suited for jogging. This area is also ideal for biking or simply taking a walk. In summer, the canal is a popular promenade and offers something to suit every taste. From the port near the Schwedenplatz, you can reach the Slovakian capital of Bratislava in ca. 80 min. with a ride on the hydrofoil, the Twin-City-Liner: the traditional water route that traders and travelers used centuries ago.

Do you take fitness seriously? Good, then the Holmes Place Fitness Club, only 3 min. from the hotel, is the perfect place for you. Our guests can take advantage of the various fitness and wellness offers for a special price of EUR 15.00 (not including massages, tanning booth, etc.).

How to get to Hotel Tigra

THE SOUND OF a great history

From our hotel, you can reach the Hofburg quicker than you can eat a piece of Sachertorte! We promise!

Would you like to stay 5 min. from St. Stephen's Cathedral? Then come stay in our hotel located in the middle of the cultural highlights of Vienna. We are the perfect starting point for your exploration of the city.

Walks to Vienna's attractions

  1. To St. Stephen's Cathedral: On your way to Vienna's famous landmark, you will pass the church in the Am Hof square and the Goldenes Quartier. Via the famous Graben with the impressive Pestsäule (plague column), you will come to "Stephansplatz" square and then the cathedral, which not only boasts a variety of multifaceted anecdotes but also includes Europe's most striking architectural styles all the way to the Baroque.

  2. To the opera: Since you are already here, you might as well take time to stroll along the Kärntner Straße. Not only will you find top addresses for souvenirs from Vienna, but the side streets are home to many legendary cafes and charming bars later in the day. At the end of the Kärtner Straße, you can hear angels sing … or at least Anna Netrebko, Elina Garanča, or another phenomenal opera singer of our time who will enchant ears and eyes in the Vienna State Opera. 

  3. To the Hofburg: You are in luck if you are at the opera. Right next door is the Albertina with the world-famous graphic arts collection and exquisite exhibits. Treat yourself to a coffee in the Palm House in the Burggarten. After enjoying refreshments, you can continue to the Spanish Riding School, to the Redouten Halls, which are famous for congresses and balls, and to the picturesque St. Michael's Church. When you pass through St. Michael's Gate, you will come to the Imperial Treasury and Sisi Museum.

  4. To the Museumsquartier (MQ): Are you tired yet? That's understandable. Then we suggest you head to a secluded little square in the middle of the city. Take a few minutes to rest in the Volksgarten, for ex. by the Theseus Temple. Refreshed and re-energized, you can head to the Neue Burg and Austrian National Library or the Museum of Ethnology or via the Ringstraße to the Art History Museum or Natural History Museum. Do you want even more? No problem, because the Museumsquartier with the Leopold Museum and MUMOK is the center of many types of art, and it combines the old with the new.

  5. To the hotel: All roads in Vienna's inner city lead … conveniently and quickly back to the hotel. The Ringstraße is a street that represents all essential epochs of architectural history and features magnificent buildings such as Parliament, city hall, Burgtheater, and the university. When you head to the Freyung, you are only 3 min. from the hotel. But wait, there's more! There is also the Schottenkirche with the monastery along the way. You can then return via the Tiefer Graben to your hotel: Das Tigra.

  6. To the palaces: Vienna's two most famous palace complexes, Schönbrunn Palace and Belvedere Palace, are easily reachable by public transportation or tour buses. While the fascinating and detailed Baroque palace complexes were still located outside the city in the 18th century, they are surrounded by today's bigger and more spread-out Vienna. Of course, here outside the city center, you will find many other attractions, districts filled with a lively atmosphere, as well as art and cultural offers that will make your visit to Vienna an unforgettable experience.
