The best open air bars
Rooftop bars are the hippest locations in summer. What could be better than to enjoy the view of Vienna over a good cocktail. Perfect for a sundowner is the Atmosphere Rooftop Bar on the roof of the Ritz-Carlton Vienna on Vienna's Ringstrasse. This year, celebrate the relaxed Californian lifestyle here with modern tiki cocktails, unusual sunshine food, and the right groove by the DJs from Radio Superfly – that's a summer evening straight out of a picture book.

Another very different view of the city can be had from the Aurora Rooftop Bar at the Hotel Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere. Indeed, even the Belvedere can be seen from the cocktail bar on the 16th floor. Nordic design, Nordic bar food and unusual drinks surprise visitors here. New here for this year is a Veuve Clicquot Chandelier outdoor bar, which also serves inventive champagne creations.
The Lamée Rooftop bar also exudes a pure summer mood. Guests here enjoy excellent cocktails, spritzer variations, and home-made lemonades with a fabulous view of St. Stephen's Cathedral. The colorful furniture also exudes a good mood.

Vienna's most musical rooftop bar can be found on the roof of the Jaz in the City hotel in Mariafhilf, the 6th district. The entire hotel is dedicated to laid-back musical sounds – including the rooftop bar mariatrink, which has a 360-degree view of Vienna.

Back at street level is the HeldenBar. Surrounded by palms and orange trees, you can drink the cocktails here in front of the Weltmuseum Wien (World Museum Vienna), directly on Heldenplatz. A wide range of themed evenings provide variety throughout the summer.
The Kleinod cocktail bars also operate a summer outlet in Vienna's Stadtpark. Wonderful cocktails and French cuisine create the perfect Mediterranean flair at the Kleinod Stadtgarten. Trees give shade against the summer heat, a relaxing and yet trendy green oasis in the middle of the city.

The Tintenbar is a surprising summer bar – it has a very urban situation, off the beaten track, diagonally behind the Urania and nestled between ministries. There are cocktails, highballs, grilled food, fish skewers, and music.
