Italian Restaurant

“Best place to have Italian food whenever they open their outdoor area. The view is amazing and even though it is in the center of the 8th district it is silent and very enjoyable to sit there and have great food. ”

Vietnamese Restaurant

“Nothing better than a good warm bowl of Pho to warm you up in winter. Nothing better than a refreshing spring roll to fill your hungry stomach in summer. But be aware: If you want to go after 5pm, make a reservation, because Nguyen's is really popular ;)”

Theater
“Just around the corner and an institution. It exists since 1788 and is one of the most successful theaters in the German speaking countries. Even Ferdinand Raimund, Johann Nestroy and Josef Strauss used to play here. Famous director Max Reinhardt had it renovated in 1924 and it still looks like this today. The Theater in der Josefstadt is devoting itself mostly to contemporary theatre. ”
