My favourite place:
I really LOVE Rathausplatz in the city centre, where there’s entertainment and great food the whole year round.
My event tip:
If you’ve never been to the Life Ball, then you’ve never really experienced the city in all its splendour. (www.lifeball.org)
My food tip:
Motto! A great place to go out with fantastic food. You definitely won’t be disappointed by either the original Motto in the fifth district or its sister Motto am Fluss.
My shopping tip:
I love strolling down Kärntner Strasse and doing a spot of shopping, but the best designer boutiques are scattered around Neubaugasse in the seventh district.
What no visitor should miss:
Don’t pass up the opportunity to go on one of the night tours at the Museum of Natural History, which include a trip up onto the roof. It’s an absolute must! (www.nhm-wien.ac.at)
