5 Highlights in the spring
1. Open-air art at the Belvedere
Art can be a public matter. Including in the Belvedere palace park, for example. A public sculpture park can be viewed here starting May 13, 2023. Contemporary works by national and international artists will be exhibited in the gardens of the museum and of Belvedere 21. Spectacular works by artists such as Franz West, Valie Export, Alfred Hrdlicka, Brigitte Kowanz, and Lois Weinberger can be seen under the motto "Public Matters". Ideal for a spring walk.
2. Crystalline artworks at Lobmeyr
Crystal glass maker Lobmeyr is one of the best-known participants in the 1873 Vienna World's Fair and is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year. The store on Kärntner Strasse is absolutely worth a visit. It sparkles and glitters all over the place here. Magnificent crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling, sumptuous glasses shine in competition with each other in the display cases. An anniversary exhibition can also be seen on the second floor. The special exhibition Glitz and Glamour at the MAK can be seen until September 2023.
3. Looking down at Vienna in the MQ
If you'd like to enjoy Vienna from on high, then you'd best head to the MuseumsQuartier (MQ). The MQ Libelle, the roof terrace on the Leopold Museum, offers a grand view of downtown Vienna. The roof terrace is accessible to the public via two elevators. There are lots of seating areas, and a small kiosk called "Zur Libelle" serves champagne meatloaf and drinks. From April, the MQ Libelle is open daily (except Tuesdays) from 10.00 am to 10.00 pm.
4. Dining without chichi at the C.O.P. restaurant
C.O.P. stands for "Collection of Produce" and is a joint project of multi-gastronomer Haya Molcho and chef Elihay Berliner. The C.O.P. restaurant is all about farm-to-table. Regional products without long transport distances are key. And thus also the stories of the producers, which they'd like to tell at C.O.P. Stunningly good cuisine is served here without the frills.
5. On a street food tour with star chef Lukas Mraz

If you prefer street food, you should walk through Vienna in the footsteps of star chef Lukas Mraz. The street food tour leads from the oldest to the spiciest sausage stand in Vienna, where the courageous can dare to attempt a chili challenge. With Lukas Mraz (Restaurant Mraz & Sohn), we encounter local personalities and discover hidden gems of the Viennese street food scene. Fancy some horse meatloaf? That's what street food is like Viennese style.
