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.

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.
