5 Highlights in the autumn

1. Darling - I'm in the coffee house!

Autumn is coffee house time. The sidewalk café season is slowly coming to an end and we'll be enjoying sitting inside a cozy coffee house. If you don't yet know Café Liebling in the Volkstheater, you should definitely give it a try! The colorful interior creates a good mood on rainy autumn days. Café Liebling (German for darling) isn't just about coffee and home-made pastries, but also about recommendable small dishes. And afterwards, you could even go straight to a performance in the Volkstheater, perhaps?

2. Art superstar at the Albertina

Jean-Michel Basquiat was considered to be a superstar of the New York art scene in the 1980s. In its major autumn exhibition, the Albertina shows a retrospective of the artist, who died much too young. His intensely colorful and large-scale works are dedicated to socio-political issues. Even 34 years after his death, Basquiat's emotional works still retain the same impact. Highly recommended!

3. Enjoy the long-distance view from the Cobenzl

The Cobenzl is one of Vienna's home mountains and a popular excursion destination. From Grinzing, the terminus of tram line 38, it's a pleasant walk along Reisenbergweg to the Cobenzl, passing idyllic vineyards along the way. Or you can take bus 38A in comfort straight to the top. Once there, a new gastronomic highlight awaits. The Weitsicht Cobenzl offers not only a fantastic view of Vienna, but also a pretty café-restaurant with good cuisine. Based on its earlier history, the circular café was tastefully designed in the style of the 1950s.

4. Marvel at the reopened Josephinum

The renovation took ages, but the time has finally come. The Josephinum can be visited again from September 29, 2022. The Josephinum houses a world-famous collection on medical history. Above all, the anatomical wax models are in a class of their own. The collection goes back to Emperor Joseph II. The historic medical instruments are also exciting.

5. End the day in a cocktail bar

We round off a perfect autumn day in Vienna in a cocktail bar. Vienna has a bunch of cocktail bars worth recommending. A newcomer to the lively bar scene from September 29 is the high-end cocktail bar Treehaus. It gets its name from a spectacular walnut tree that grows right out of the counter in the middle of the bar. Not only the tree, but also the stylish interior is impressive. Guests can look forward to high-quality bar food and great cocktails at the Treehaus.
