A perfect autumn day in Vienna

Anyone who thinks the Viennese soul is black is wrong. It is much more like autumn: colorful, but also a little bit gray. Charming but somehow coarse. Wonderful and yet willful. Vienna is therefore most particularly worth a visit in the third season. Our bucket list therefore contains the best to-dos for a perfect autumn day in Vienna.

Every beginning is pleasurable

A sumptuous breakfast belongs to a perfect autumn day like grumpy charm to the Viennese. As varied as the pallet of autumnal colors is the culinary offering at the Waldemar Tagesbar in Hietzing. Foodies will find themselves in a gourmet paradise here with internationally inspired breakfast variations and a traditional Viennese breakfast with rolls, butter, soft-boiled egg and jam.

Lainz Game Reserve

Having silenced the early morning hunger with a big breakfast, we continue over the colorful carpet of autumn leaves in the Lainz Game Reserve. With its extensive parkland and ancient forests, the reserve is a popular recreational area for long walks. Surrounded by the picturesque natural landscape, even the Viennese forget their institutionalized grumpiness. And when they come across wild boar, stags and deer, then they are finally happy.

Autumn in Vienna

Dining on game in a natural idyll

After the walk, stomachs start rumbling. The hunger can be satisfied in the idyllic Hermes Villa in the middle of the Lainz Game Reserve. In the unique setting of the historic building, excellent game dishes and exquisite treats are served in the Café Restaurant Hermes in the autumn in Vienna.

Hare on paper

If you haven't had enough game, you'll have to head back to the city center. Because hare on canvas can still be seen at the Albertina until January 6, 2020. Of course, this isn't a real hare but the masterpiece of Albrecht Dürer, which is on display in the Albertina together with many other his works. If the crowds get too much for you in the Albertina, then you can also experience sacred and contemporary 'wow' moments in the Dom Museum (cathedral museum) at St. Stephen's Cathedral.

Hipsters, artists and designers

Next, the 1st district is an inviting place to stroll and shop. The route of our autumn day in Vienna leads through the Burggarten past the MuseumsQuartier towards Neubau. In Vienna's 7th district, Café Jonas Reindl serves up the perfect atmosphere for whiling away the time over delicious barista coffee and Viennese pastries – and invites you to watch the busy happenings in Vienna's hipster district.

Top Kino

If you walk down Mariahilfer Strasse, you'll come to the Top Kino movie theater, where selected film highlights are screened. You'll also be well looked after here if you fancy a snack, because the Top Kino also has a good kitchen and bar.
