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 a cafe with a fireplace, here are some ideas.

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

Haus der Musik

Austria and its capital Vienna are known for their connection to the world of music, from classical names to more recent rock, pop and hip hop creations. 

In Vienna, one of the best museums for all ages is the house of music, with information and many interactive experiences will teach you how sound is created and show you pieces from the city’s philharmonic. 

One of the highlights is the staircase between floors that acts as a piano allowing visitors to compose their music.

Long night in the museum

Definitely one of the coolest events in any city. This weekend is the time to visit Viennese museums way after hours – the event is actually Austria-wide and you can check all participating institutions here.

On Saturday, the 1st of October, the “ORF Long Night of Museums” takes place. From 6 pm to 1 am, numerous museums open their doors and offer a diverse program for young and old. The regular tickets cost 15 euros, discounted tickets 12 euros and regionally limited tickets six euros. Admission is free for children up to the age of twelve.

Café Jelinek

As the weather gets colder and the weekend promises some rain, of course staying indoors is a good idea. Vienna is full of beautiful cafes to visit and enjoy, but Jelinek has a charm of its own.

The traditional coffee house not only has delicious food in a great environment, but visitors can also enjoy some warmth straight from the fireplace (no extremely high gas bills here!).

Vienna Comic Con 

This weekend, Austria’s capital is hosting the Vienna Comic Con. Comic fans can meet up and enjoy the event with some great guests. Besides famous comic artists, fantasy authors, and voice actors, there are cosplay guests and entertainment guests. One of them is Jack Gleeson, the actor who played Joeffrey in Game of Thrones. 

The comic con also has thrilling esports tournaments, free-to-play areas, and more.

Visit a heuriger

Not ready to say goodbye to heuriger season just yet? There are many unique places still open and worth a visit before it gets too old outside. 

The classic suggestion is Heuriger Wieninger, in the 21st district. Besides the house wine, there’s a buffet with warm and cold dishes, all in the traditional ambiance of a heuriger.
