Restaurants and pubs

Vienna’s second district is filled with great restaurants and pubs. Even better: if you walk across the bridge just one block from us, you are right in the heart of the capital’s first district. We encourage you to explore our city, which has been voted most livable in the world, but if you still need a few suggestions, please check out the “eat & out” section of our student news site, TheLoop.at.
