Hofburg palace

If you haven’t visited yet, the palace, which hosts the president of Austria, is one of Vienna’s best tourist attractions. For more than 600 years, it was the home of the Habsburg imperial family and inside holds attractions, including the beautiful national library.

It’s a place that could take you a couple of days to explore properly, so choose a focus (the library is beautiful, the Sisi museum is fascinating and the imperial apartments are also fun to visit) and head out there.

Vienna Coffee Festival 2022

Vienna is known for its cafes and is a great place to enjoy some hot (or ice, we’re not judging) coffee. This weekend, the Vienna Coffee Festival is taking place at the Marx Halle with tastings, workshops and events for the coffee enthusiasts out there.

The focus is on important topics such as sustainability, new developments and quality awareness. The festival runs from 8 to 11 September 2022 and starts at 10 am.

Confiserie Zum Süßen Eck

With more than 100 years of tradition in Vienna, the Confiserie Zum Süßen Eck is one of the best places to eat sweets in the capital, particularly Dutch specialities.

There are literally hundreds of varieties of food, from liquorice and chilli pepper chocolate, as well as vegan sweets.

Brazilian music party

There are not that many Brazilian events in Vienna, but when it’s the country’s independence celebrations, things pick up in the Austrian capital. This Saturday, hostel Jo&Joe (located in the same building as IKEA Westbahnhof) is hosting a free Brazilian music party starting at 8 pm.

Jedlerseer Kirtag

The traditional Jedlersee Kirtag is celebrating its 150th edition this weekend, from September 9th to 11th.

Around the Lorettoplatz and at the beginning of the Festwiese near the parish church Jedlesee / Maria Loretto, in the 21st district, a lot of market stalls with all kinds of goods and gastronomy are waiting for you. There is also entertainment for children and live music.

What’s on: Five things to do in Vienna this weekend

Vienna is full of events, places to visit and great new restaurants to try out. If you are overwhelmed with the possibilities or just wondering where you can find dog Christmas Market, here are some ideas.

What's on: Five things to do in Vienna this weekend

300 years of the Belvedere Museum

One of Austria’s most beautiful museums is turning 300 next year and the celebrations start this weekend. There will be a special exhibition on the history of the Belvedere from December 2nd to January 7th 2024. 

As an architectural ensemble as well as a museum, the Belvedere stood for staging power and representation throughout epochs: as a backdrop for court festivals, at times as a royal residence, but also as the scene of the signing of the Austrian State Treaty in 1955. In an extensive exhibition, the museum now deals with its changeable use.

Repair Café and breakfast pop-up

On Friday and Saturday, Breakfast Store Vienna will host a breakfast pop-up and repair café. 

On Friday, you’ll have the chance to have your favourite garments re-sewed by a seamstress over coffee, smoothies and cake and also make small DIY gifts. You can get your shirts printed and re-designed on Saturday, plus a delicious breakfast. 

Opening hours are Friday, from 2 pm to 8 pm and Saturday, from 10 am to 4pm.

Australian restaurant

A little bit of Oz in the heart of Vienna can be found at Billabong Foods & Drinks. The bar, located in the first district, is full of cool events (from World Cup viewings to pub quiz nights and live music). 

The kitchen offers plenty of dishes to snack and share, including nachos, fries, rings and fried chicken. There are also options for sandwiches, wraps, and huge stakes, including a Kangaroo filet in a red wine shallot sauce. The burger options have from meat and vegan to ostrich meat so that everyone can find their favourite dish.

Christmas markets for dogs

There are two things the Viennese love: Christmas Markets and dogs. So Hundsgut Hewera, a dog training centre in district 11, is hosting a perfect combination of both: a dog Christmas market.

From 4 pm to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday, you and your pup drop by and get some delicious treats, homemade baked cookies and even some punsch.

Ice skating season is on!

If you like ice skating – or want to try it out now that you are in Vienna – this is the season to do so. Many events are taking place over the weekend, including the Tag des Esilaufsports at the Wiener Eislaufverein (the famous Wiener Eistraum by the Rathaus opens only in January).
