Vienna In Your Pocket city guide


Summertime, baby! While we’re a little terrified that we’re halfway through 2019 already, we’re going to forget the speed of time by enjoying the Viennese sun, by which we mean hitting the museums, galleries and beer gardens of the city. Vienna is a special city all through the year, but there is something about the sun that brings the best out of it. What have we got on tap for July and August? Read on, young child, read on.

First things first, have you picked up your Vienna City Card yet? No?! What are you waiting for?! This little slice of heroic magic will save you money across the board, from museum entrances to restaurant bills via taxis, public transport and all the rest. The card saves money all over the joint and practically pays for itself, not to mention the absolute stress-free part of it all, so visit the online shop and buy the thing. Be sure to use the code POCKET1 when you do.

The MuseumsQuartier summer season is in full-flow, with many great exhibitions and performances taking place in July and August. The Leopold Museum and Mumok have some truly fascinating installations this summer, so head to our culture and events section to see what takes your fancy. Outside of MQ, the line-up at Secession over the summer is about as stellar as it gets. Culture vultures — you are in for a treat.

Add this to the general atmosphere of Vienna in the sunshine and you’ve got something very special on your plate. We’ll be back in the autumn with our 54th issue, so be sure to get back to us with any and all feedback, be that through email, social media, or via love-letters passed onto tourist info staff as you buy that Vienna City Card. Have a great time.
