Simply wonderful. The Palm House is without doubt one of the most beautiful steel and glass constructions of its time and was once used by the emperor as a place for relaxation and entertainment. It has since become an institution for locals as well as visitors to the Vienna. The Palm House snuggles up against a side-wing of the Imperial Palace and offers a direct view of the Burggarten from the wonderful terrace. In good weather, places on the sun terrace are hotly sought after. Inside the former greenhouse, visitors enjoy coffee and home-made pastries between the exotic plants; the menu and wine list are also worth a look. Cocktails are served in the evening and the DJ line-up on Friday is predominantly electronic with "relaxed grooves".
