Visit the Prater
The Wiener Prater is a place that most people who live in Vienna have visited at least once. It’s also well worth the ride. The amusement park has options for children, adrenaline junkies, and all those in between.
It’s also a great place to get some cold drinks and delicious meals. But, of course, if it gets too hot, you can always head to the surrounding park, with endless trees providing shade.
Calle Libre festival
The street art festival Calle Libre has its final days this weekend, so there is still time to see the international artists in Vienna’s Nordwestbahnhof.
Besides the colourful arts spread on the 400-metre warehouse, you can enjoy music, refreshments, workshops and installations. The festival also promotes guided walking tours in Vienna.
You might not be spending your weekend on a beautiful Greek beach, but perhaps you could get close to the feeling by going to a delicious Greek restaurant in Vienna.
Restaurant Akropolis in the 21st district has an impressive 4.6 rating on Google Maps (with over 1,300 reviews), has been around for almost 30 years in Austria and is recommended by many Greeks. What more can you ask?
Learn more about Austria by attending an information session
The City of Vienna’s Integration and Diversity department is holding several workshops on Saturday at its VHS Favoriten location.
