What to do in Vienna

Explore the Golden Quarter

The Golden Quarter is an ambitious urban regeneration project that has transformed parts of the Unesco-listed Innere Stadt into a dynamic, cosmopolitan city centre. The area boasts restaurants, lounges, hotels, luxury boutiques (including a fantastic Peter Marino-designed Louis Vuitton store), as well as some of the most desirable properties in the city, if not the world.

Visit the Third Man Museum

This museum pays homage to the famous film The Third Man, which is set in Vienna, and stars Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles. Even if you haven’t seen the film, the museum is still worth visiting for the insights it offers into post-war Vienna – the spy capital of the world.
