Market
$$
“Naschmarkt is a lively place all week and in particular on Saturday. Saturday’s you will not only find the usual stands but also a local farmer market. I love to go there to buy fresh flowers or seasonal fruit and vegetables. But there is more to discover! If you love flea markets, this is the place to be every Saturday morning until early afternoon. And don’t miss the opportunity to sip your sundowner after your flea market experience in one of the very hip places like Neni, Orient & Occident... and more. Basically you can spend your entire Saturday there.”

Café

“This is a really authentic cafe where locals like to have their morning coffe and newspaper. They have very good breakfast, typical Viennese style. Although very famous, it is still quiet and calm (compared to eg. Cafe Mozart or Sacher.). Don't forget to try their cakes! Distance: 1500 m”

Palace
“This gigantic palatial complex and gardens is split into Upper and Lower Belvedere and served as a summer residence for Austrian princes in the 1600’s. The two palaces themselves feature amazing architecture and stand out royally in the gardens – Upper Belvedere has a detailed façade with green domed semi-towers while Lower Belvedere has a simpler design; both palaces face the stunning gardens. Sights at the Belvedere Museum include the two palaces which hold a staggering collection of artwork and decorated staterooms and the expansive landscape gardens complete with pools and an Orangery.”
