The 5 best LGBT locations

Café Savoy

The Savoy is one of Vienna's oldest and most beautiful LGBT locations and is not one to be missed. The Savoy has been around since 1897. How it looks inside: Opulant interiors, golden chandeliers, detailed ornementation and huge mirrors are reminiscent of imperial splendour. You'll be in good hands here no matter the time of day. And the best thing: The Savoy is directly next to the Naschmarkt. It is therefore perfect for a quick pitstop or as a place to watch the world go by. The best place to observe the lively hustle and bustle is from the cafe's outdoor dining area.

Kaiserbründl Men's Sauna

If you fancy a hot sauna infusion after a night of partying in Vienna, the Kaiserbründl Men's Sauna is the place to be. The imperial ambience is particularly worth experiencing. Even one of the Habsburgs used to be a regular here: Archduke Ludwig Viktor (called "Luziwuzi"), the youngest brother of Emperor Franz Josephs, enjoyed himself in the Kaiserbündl. But he once overdid it a bit, receiving a slap in the face for being a bit too "affectionate".
