Day trip to Kahlenberg

One of the most visited day trip locations near Vienna is Kahlenberg. It has a vast view of the city and lots of easy hiking trails for the whole family.


The drive to the top is also easy or you can choose to hike.

Recommended Peruvian food in the First

Who would imagine finding Peruvian cuisine in Austria? Well, we did, and it’s near home for us, and well worth the trip if you are outside the Ring. It’s informal, but service and food makes it worth the trip.  http://www.qero-viena.at/


In response to the question:  “how kid-friendly it seemed?” I recently asked, and they place families in the lower level. They have one highchair, but no booster seats. It would be best to call ahead.

Stroll through the Naschmarkt

Simply on the must see list, this place has everything you could imagine. Things like a huge flea market, farmers market, dried fruit and nuts, and restaurants. See this for a link to an Austrian website: Flohmarkt am Wiener Naschmarkt jeden Samstag ganzjährig

The market can be reached at the Karlsplatz and Kettenbruckengasse stops on the U4 line.


Good Sushi

Q. Where can I find good sushi in Vienna? (Compiled from various posts)

A. There is a very good sushi place called Toko Ri on Gonzagagasse in the 1st. We tried it because I found a website recommending it as one of the best sushi places in the city, and it is indeed very good. There are fishtanks in the restaurant, so good for an early dinner with kids, and they will also do takeaway.

A. The sushi at both Asia Vienna and Manga was pretty good. Nothing fancy like some of the rolls you see in the States, but not bad. The running sushi place at Millenium City is decent, too.

A. Dots, which has locations in both the 19th and on Mariahilferstrasse. (Read TriVienna’s review of Dots here.)

A. Yohm down in the 1st district is really good! A little more expensive but nice for special celebrations…one of my favorites!

Reservations at Demel

Q. Do we need to make reservations to get a table by the bakery AND can we view the bakery year round? (Posted 2/11/2013)

A. Yes, definitely recommend a reservation. We waited in an endless line for a table on the weekend and the only one was way upstairs. There are only a few tables with direct site of the bakers too.

Note: The author of the post made a follow up post stating that she had made reservations and was able to view the bakery when she went, suggesting the bakery is open year round.
