“Switch off completely. This simple notion seems to have almost fallen out of fashion these days. And achieving a sense of peace and tranquillity is a highly individual undertaking. Luckily, Therme Wien offers plenty of different quiet corners for you to withdraw to, so you can tune in to your own natural pace and find a rhythm that matches your own. Free from distractions, without the noise of the city, and without the endless stream of demands – rediscover how to bring peace back into your everyday life. For children Make a splash and have fun – in other words, enjoy being a kid. Head for one of the numerous slides which coil through the spa like giant serpents. From the little ones’ perspective, the rides just seem to go on forever. Jump into the water and burst back to the surface grinning from ear to ear. Next it’s time for the wilderness of the garden where even more adventures await. It’s not for nothing that it’s known as the Adventure Stone. And there’s no need to worry about disturbing anyone – this part of Therme Wien is a separate world of its own.”

“Easily the best schnitzel - and maybe the best schnitzel imaginable - in a weird and wonderful location (just across the entrance to the central cemetery of Vienna, the building itself used to hold a gravestone manufacture).”

“Forget about dry and overpriced Sacher Torte at Sacher hotel. Get local and take a walk in a great park to finish it with the best cakes in Vienna. Seriously. Menu is also worth it. Treat yourself.”
