Here we present our top 4 Grätzl moments for early summer in Vienna to make the most of the first rays of sunshine!

There are few places where early summer is as magnificent in its full bloom as in Vienna. The blossoms of the chestnut trees not only transform the famous Ringstrasse into a colorful oasis, but also make the faces of the admirers shine.

In this article, we present our top 4 Grätzl moments for early summer in Vienna to make the most of the first rays of sunshine! 

The Botanical Garden

Behind the Belvedere in the heart of the city is a beautiful green oasis that often goes unnoticed, even though it is home to unique plant collections. Endangered species, exotic plants and representatives of the local flora are at home in the botanical garden, transforming it into a valuable habitat for wildlife. A stroll through the plant paradise guarantees moments of relaxation, recreation and amazement.

  • Free admission

  • 15 minutes' walk from the Street Junior Suite / Street Suite grätzlhotel BELVEDERE.

Donaukanal and the Augarten park

The Danube Canal promenade is known for its diverse program. You will come across wonderful architectural buildings, pass the largest graffiti zone in Vienna (where graffiti can be sprayed legally) and be surprised by all kinds of beach bars and eateries.

Tip: A walk through the Servitenviertel district across the Danube Canal to the Augarten is perfect on a mild early summer evening. The evening atmosphere by the water and the feeling of freedom that will overcome you in the Augarten will prove to you that the city is home to an infinite number of hidden feel-good moments.

So they do still exist: coffee houses and delicatessens in one!

Anna Putz runs the "delicatessen" at stand 25/27 and ensures authenticity at the Meidlinger Markt with regional products and organic quality. In addition to home-roasted coffee, the delicatessen also offers high-quality foods such as bread, handmade rolls and cheese specialties from fine and organic dairies.
