Vienna In Your Pocket city guide


Another summer came, another summer went, and what a summer it was. The sun did a number on Vienna and then some, but the good people of the city found more than enough refuge in the parks and beer gardens of the city, with an emphasis on the latter. It is time for autumn, our favourite time of year, so what is on the menu?

The last vestiges of summer weather will stick around for a little longer in the city, meaning there will be plenty of afternoon sun for a few weeks, but the evening temperatures will soon begin to dip. What better time to head into the theatres to see why Vienna is considered the home of classical music? No city in the world does high culture like the Austrian capital.

Few cities do coffee and beer like Vienna too. The coming months will see the locals make the move from summer terraces indoors, to warm up via excited conversation and some of the best coffee on the continent in Europe’s most graceful cafes and bars. The restaurant scene comes alive in autumn too — this is a city that does homely better than most, after all. 

We’ve got all that covered in this, the 54th issue of Vienna In Your Pocket, but we’re not afraid to turn our eyes to magic outside of the city. Bratislava is too close to Vienna not to visit, and the Slovakian capital might just be the most underrated city in the region. We’ve given it a little bit of coverage in this guide, so give it a look. And that’ll do for now, so enjoy your autumn. We welcome any and all feedback of course, whether via social media, email, or slipped in during a solid gossip session at Hawelka. We’ll see you there.
