Best hostels in Vienna/Austria
Do you plan to go to Vienna – the capital city of Austria? If so, and if you are looking for the best youth hostel, you are in the right place! We are here to introduce the best hostels Vienna offers!
Viena is a city definitely worth to visit – not only due to its historical meaning, Prater – very famous amusement park, or Hundertwasser buildings that takes breath, but also due to its great gastronomy – especially for the cake called Sacher, and of course Wiener Schnitzel (the original one is made from veal, be aware of that).
So, if you plan to go to Vienna, we recommend spending some time there to have enough time to visit and discover also e.g. Belvedere or Schönnbrunn (the best buildings are mostly in the city center of just a few stops by public transport away) and enjoy the atmosphere of city center full of stylish cafés, restaurants and in the evening we recommend to visit Prater – the center of fun and joy (especially if you travel with little kids).
Vienna is quite close to the Czech Republic and Prague, where I live, still, I was there just twice, the last visit was 2 years ago – what I really liked was the Hundertwasserhaus (st. Kegelgasse 36-38) – also very close to city center and you won‘t regret spending your time getting there, because this place is really magical!
Don‘t forget to visit the little shops nearby, decorated in the Hundertwasser style – therefore so stylish and cute – you will feel like in another world, I assure you that! The best thing is that it is not all that you can see in relation to Hundertwasser architecture…
…because from the Hundertwasserhouse, you could move to another Hundertwasser building named Kunst Haus (st. Untere Weißgerberstraße 13) with Green Museum and a very pleasant café (I ordered Sacher there and it was like in heaven!).
So, you can see there are places you cannot miss during Vienna visit and also there are places you cannot see anywhere else than in Vienna, therefore is this city full of tourists from Spring to Autumn and we cannot blame them!
