More about Hotel Donauwalzer

Climb the Stephansdom...

by coccinella169

...or in case you aren`t sportive, there is also an elevator which takes you up the northern spire for a fee of EUR 4,50 per person. You pay directly in the elevator.

After you`ve reached the top of the northern spire, you can enjoy a beautiful view over Vienna. The church bell you`ll see there, is called "Pummerin". It is the biggest bell of Stephansdom and one of the biggest "active" church bells of the world. You can only hear it`s sound on important catholic festive days, like Christmas or Easter, and also on New Years Evening at midnight (this is also transmitted by Austrian radio every year, followed by our most famous waltz, the "Donauwalzer")

A word to Stephansdom itself: it is certainly one of Vienna`s landmarks and mainly built in gothic style. If you have a closer look, you will also discover some roman origins of the cathedral. It has a beautiful roof with the emblems of emperor Franz I., the city of Vienna and Austria upon it. Like in most of Austria´s churches, the entrance is free.

In the basement you can visit the catacombs. I saved this for my next visits :) - but as far as I know the internal organs of members of the Habsburg family are bedded there (!). Entrance fee is also EUR 4,50 and you visist the catacombs in a guided tour.

Vienna Accommodation

by Judiz

Hiya
I will be in Vienna for 3 nights in February and am looking for relatively cheap accommodation for 3 adults in a central location. Hostel is OK. We are finding it difficult to work out the best location to stay, as having never been there we dont have our bearings. Thanks in advance for your help. Judi...ps..if hostel accommodation we would prefer one with private rooms.

I've been in Vienna last year in June and we were also 3 adults. We've booked a triple room at Pension Suzanne (www.pension-suzanne.at), just across the opera, that's as much central as you can get in Vienna. You can walk to the major attractions.
The building is very uncharacteristic but the room was very good (3 individual beds) with a kitchen. Since Vienna is quit expensive this can be a very good option to save some money.

I stayed at the Happy Hostel in Vienna. My Mum came out to meet me and didn't really fancy a hostel so we went in the middle; a private twin room sharing a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
It had great facilities in the kitchen, we went to a near by supermarket and cooked, dining table and tv too.
It is very near the Westbahnhof and a short walk down Marishilfe Strasse to the main areas of attraction.

They do have private triple rooms with shared facilities.

I visited Vienna for the first time a few weeks ago ... and Neubau (Vienna's 7th district) is great if you are seeking a reasonably priced place to stay. Because of the terrific underground metro, it is quick and convenient to get into the city center. Personally, I stayed in a single room at the Hotel Pension Walzerstadt for 49 Euros per night -- and I loved it.

One warning ... I wouldn't venture past the Gürtel in search of a cheap place to stay. The Gürtel is a very busy road ... and the neighborhood around it is a bit seedy. As long as you stay inside of it, though, you should be okay.

Hope you enjoy your trip to Vienna!

I stayed at the Lucia once. I presently returned from at this hotel. I had been going around Vienna and had had fantastic resort incidents - until now.

Travel Tips for Vienna

Vienna Tip

by miaou

Enjoying the music festival at the town hall. The screen showed the perfomance and the music (opera or classic) filled the air. Delicious aroma permeated from nearby food stalls. It is a magnificent way to spend a summer evening in Vienna.

Grieichische Kirche (GreekChurch)

by Ekaterinburg

This church is also very different to the usual Viennese Baroque being neo-byzantine in design and really looking very unlike a church at all from the outside. It's in the old Fleischmarkt area, once frequented by many Greek merchants who eventually built their own church and had it re-designedn in mock- Byzantine style in 1861. This red brick edifice sticks out a mile in Vienna and the gilt in the castellations make it even more prominent. Inside though it is truly beautiful, small and mysterious. Two silver and glass chandeliers light up the darkness which comes from black marble-type walls and very dark paintings. As you become more accustomed to the dimly-lit interior you begin to pick out the icons and frescoes and appreciate the very rich decoration.On the gates into the inner sanctuary is a wonderful Annunciation, two seperate panels representing Mary and the Angel who is telling her she will become the Mother of God. The congregation here is obviously small with seating restricted to just one row, flush with the wall and a balcony upstairs. There was no entrance fee for visiting the church but you can pay a small fee to light some candles inside and presumably this helps with the upkeep.

If you wanna take a quick virtual tour around Vienna, take a look at my Travelogue 1, where I have uploaded things you can't miss anyway when visiting Vienna. Of course this is a personal choice. There are more, but these are my favourites.

And now looking the other way...

by steventilly

And now looking the other way towards the Rathaus. In case it looks familiar (epecially to my Belgian friends) it was modelled on the style of the Grand Place in Brussels (though it's obviously not an exact replica).
