House of the Sea
It's hard to believe there's a colorful world of animals hiding behind the gray walls of the former anti-aircraft tower. Nowadays, a thirst for knowledge and thirst-quenchers come together in the House of the Sea. A refreshing drink in the 360° Ocean Sky bar is – in the truest sense of the word – the absolute highlight of a visit to the House of the Sea. Awaiting us in the Aqua-Terra-Zoo are colorful and exotic fish, sharks, reptiles, fear-inducing spiders, and cheeky little monkeys. A cozy drink combined with the impressive view over Vienna creates the prefect end to a visit there.
In the heart of Vienna, we enjoy a very special view up on the roof of the Hotel Lamée. From this roof terrace, St. Stephen's Cathedral seems close enough to touch. It's the ideal place to look back over a long day of sightseeing in downtown Vienna, accompanied by refreshing drinks and the finest cocktails. High-class drinks and a view of the roofs of Vienna: What more could the heart desire?
57 Restaurant & Lounge
A visit to 57 Restaurant & Lounge is all about superlatives. The fastest elevator in Austria whisks you up the tallest building in the country. Having arrived on the 57th floor of the DC Tower, on the north bank of the Danube, the hosts of Austria's highest restaurant will serve your guests food and drinks of the highest level. Only the amazing view over Vienna, the Danube and the surrounding countryside can top all that.
If you have a weakness for simple names and an interesting view over Vienna, this is the perfect place to visit. In the Oben Kitchen and Bar, guests sit above one of the busiest roads in the city, directly over the Main Library. It's the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle for a while. If you make it to the top of the impressive stairs, you'll be rewarded with delicious menus and fresh drinks. Only regional and seasonal ingredients are used in the kitchen. That's a big bonus in terms of sustainability and makes the Oben a popular meeting place for a long breakfast or convivial lunch.
Attic bar in the 25hours hotel
"We are all mad here": the sign above the entrance, in the finest Alice in Wonderland manner, suggests that we are walking into a very unusual hotel. An important element of the specific style and design is the bar on the roof of the 25hours hotel. Located right next to Vienna's MuseumsQuartier, this rooftop bar is an ideal place from which to head off into the city's summertime nightlife. On the roof terrace, the guests enjoy excellent cocktails and an amazing view over the roofs of Vienna. Younger guests in particular love this bar for its stylish furnishings and pleasant atmosphere.
Refreshing drinks and good food with a spectacular view over Vienna: a fantastic combination. This is exactly what you can experience at many places in Vienna. These bars and restaurants with a view are the ideal setting to round off a long day of shopping or sightseeing in Vienna or as the start to a long evening enjoying Vienna's nightlife.
