A heart for Vienna
Vienna the fairytale city
The most liveable city in the world
In 1922, Hermann Leopoldi composed the waltz "Vienna, dying fairytale city". Vienna, the fairytale city, today as then, is more lively than anywhere else. We would like to invite you to experience the magic of Vienna directly from our hotel.
Just a few minutes away from the Hollmann Beletage is St Stephen's Square with St Stephen's Cathedral. Consecrated in 1147 AD, the cathedral has characterised the cityscape of Vienna for over 800 years. You can admire the cathedral from the outside and inside. Guided tours of the cathedral and the catacombs are also available. For a fabulous view over Vienna's city centre, you can climb the stairs of the north or south tower for €2 to €6 (cash only).
It is not far from St Stephen's Cathedral to Vienna's Ringstrasse. Emperor Franz Joseph had the Ringstrasse built in 1857 with the words "It is my will ...". Today you can marvel at the great wonders of Viennese architecture along the street. You will find the State Opera, City Hall, Parliament, the Burgtheater, the University of Vienna, the Votive Church and the Vienna Stock Exchange. Nearby you can visit the Museum of Art History and the Natural History Museum. The museums house the "realms of nature" and "unique art treasures" from all over the world. For a short break, you can take a seat in one of the many traditional coffee houses with Viennese flair.
Also worth seeing is the Hofburg with its public garden and castle garden. The Hofburg was the main residence of the Habsburgs for several centuries. Today, the 24-hectare building complex is home to the official residence of the President of Austria, the National Library and event and congress rooms. You can also discover the Spanish Riding School, the Albertina, the Sisi Museum, the Imperial Treasury and Heldenplatz.
Time travel fairytale castle
A must-see in Vienna is the famous "Sissi Palace", Schönbrunn Palace. Originally used as a summer residence and later inhabited by Emperor Franz Joseph, the palace is a highlight for all Sissi fans. You can book various tours to see the palace's state rooms and private apartments or take a free stroll through the palace gardens. Always worth a visit - not only for families - is the zoo in Schöbrunn.
The Belvedere Palace is located in the 3rd district. An attraction for all art and architecture lovers. A place of contemporary art as one of the oldest museums in the world, you can admire world-famous collections or baroque jewels here in the Belvedere World Heritage Site.You can also admire Gustav Klimt's kiss there.
You can reach Vienna's Central Cemetery within 43 minutes on the U3 underground line and the tram number 71. Franz Schubert, Ludwig van Beethoven, Karl Renner, Arthur Schnitzler, Udo Jürgens and Falco were laid to rest here in their graves of honour. For many Viennese, the cemetery is a place of relaxation. Between the trees and graves, you can always spot animals such as deer, squirrels and ravens.
Far beyond Austria's borders, the Prater is one of Vienna's most famous sights. From the Hollmann Beletage you can reach the Prater in 10 minutes on the U1 underground line. The amusement park is open every year and offers various attractions for young and old. For example, the Viennese Ferris wheel, all kinds of carousels, trampolines, the Prater tower and the wild mouse (you can watch the Viennese crime comedy "die wilde Maus" in our hotel cinema). For a long walk and nature in the centre of Vienna, you can explore the Praterwiese outside the park.
