Browse chic boutiques. Vienna is famed for its art, but the shopping is splendid too. Treat each other to a surprise gift at one of the city’s jewelry, antique or art stores, or a high-end fashion boutique. The hotel is within walking distance of many upscale shopping districts.
Step back in time. The schönbrunn palace’s grand and opulent staterooms are well worth the stop. But the palace gardens are a dreamy place, where you can imagine you and your love in a 17th-century rendezvous among sculptured fountains, shadowed tree tunnels and gorgeous flora.
Culinary traditions. A Viennese bistro, or Beisl, is a cozy, down-to-earth eatery that serves traditional dishes — soup with pancake strips or dumplings, schnitzel, goulash, pastries — in a setting of dark wood paneling and basic tables and chairs.
Medieval beauty. Walk down the streets of medieval Vienna, along the narrow, cobblestone lanes around st. Stephen’s cathedral, appearing as they were centuries ago, and the winding alleyway of schönlaterngasse, the main lane of a historical neighborhood lined with colorful baroque townhouses.
Island getaway. A narrow sliver of an island, the Donauinsel is frequented by locals for recreation and affords a chance to stroll hand in hand and appreciate the beauty of Vienna away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Your carriage awaits. Snuggle in a horse-drawn carriage, known as a fiacre, as you and your sweetheart listen to the rhythmic sound of clip-clopping hooves and learn about fascinating local history. Fiacre stands are found in different parts of the city: stephansplatz, heldenplatz, albertinaplatz, petersplatz and burgtheater.
Relax, together. Settle in for a relaxing couple's treatment in the luxurious spa suites of the hotel. Lose yourselves in the “from Vienna with love” experience — an evening that includes mineral and steam baths, massages, champagne and dinner at Dstrikt steakhouse.
Cocktails with a view. On the eighth floor, finish your date with a nightcap at the hotel’s upscale atmosphere rooftop bar, and watch the sparkling lights of the night sky above and the city below.
