Luxury in Vienna - enjoy and discover in exclusive style

Go on a shopping spree in Vienna, the city with imperial flair, and you'll find yourself surrounded by the residences and palaces of emperors and princes. The Goldenes Quartier in the Old City is one of the most exclusive shopping districts in Vienna. The flagship stores of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Valentino, Saint Laurent, Prada, Miu Miu, Brioni, Alexander McQueen and others can be found here. Not far away is the shop of Vivienne Westwood, which offers the prêt-à-porter fashion lines and couture tailored fashion otherwise found only at the main boutique in London. The shoes from Rudolf Scheer & Söhne are also made to measure. This traditional Viennese company was granted the title "imperial and royal court shoemaker" in 1878. Other royal and imperial court purveyors such as the glass and lighting manufacturer J. & L. Lobmeyr or the jeweler A.E. Köchert guarantee the very best in quality craftsmanship and unique products to this day. Fans of luxury will also find a bunch of top-quality jewels on Kohlmarkt, where Cartier, Chopard and Tiffany are represented alongside traditional Viennese firms such as Wagner, Bucherer and Schullin. And just a couple of steps further along at the court confectioner Demel, the artistically designed display cases entice shoppers inside for a well-earned coffee break between purchases.

In Vienna, pampered gourmets will also experience special flavor moments. Viennese cuisine is interpreted and perfected with a modern twist by leading Austrian restaurateurs. And numerous styles of international cuisine are also prepared to the highest standard in the restaurants. Some 116 Viennese restaurants currently hold the coveted toques of Gault & Millau, while a total of eleven Michelin stars are shared between nine restaurants in Vienna. Three of these have even been awarded two stars each by the Michelin Guide: the Steirereck in the Stadtpark, the Silvio Nickol Gourmet Restaurant in Palais Coburg and the restaurant Mraz & Sohn. The Steirereck also ranks ninth on the list of the "World's 50 Best Restaurants" and is a pioneer in matters of vegetable and herb cuisine. The wine cellar of Palais Coburg is one of the best in the world and offers true wine rarities for aficionados and connoisseurs.

Quite apart from the cultural mainstream, private experiences can be arranged such as a guided tour of the collections in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, the "Exclusive Morning Experience" in Schönbrunn Zoo or a tour with individual program in the Wiener Konzerthaus. Art lovers and collectors can head for the many galleries in Vienna as well as to art fairs such as viennacontemporary or the auctions in the Dorotheum, Palais Kinsky or the WestLicht Gallery. A Leica was auctioned here for the record price of EUR 1.68 million in 2012.

The VIP service at the airport, the limousine at your disposal throughout your visit and the excellent all-round attention in a luxury Viennese hotel all make for an unforgettable stay.
