Postcards from Vienna, Austria

Even though it's only been a month since I came back from Vienna, I still remember being in awe of the beautiful city and debating if I should prolong my stay so I could visit nearby cities. Salzburg and Hallstatt were on my list but I didn't have enough time to visit. I only had four full days in Vienna since I made a two day trip to Prague which you can read about here. I tried to make most of the time during my stay in Vienna and put together a list. It was a bit chilly since I was there during the first two weeks of March, but nonetheless I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved Vienna. Below are a list of places I recommend visiting while you're in Vienna! I would recommend purchasing the Vienna Pass during your stay since it's a cheaper option than paying for each landmark as it can get quite expensive. You can checkout more on my Instagram highlights video here.

Eats & Cafes:
Cafe le Marche // really good coffee! they serve food from 9am-12pm so come here early to grab a seat as seating is limited. 
Cafe Telegraph // a hipster cafe with a great selection of food, drinks, and pastries. book in advance because this place is busy all the time!
Figar 1070 // came here for brunch, an amazing selection of food and really good coffee! 
Paremi // an adorable French cafe that has yummy pastries, coffee, and sandwiches. sit outside if you can grab a seat!
Das Hanil // a korean restaurant that serves delicious sushi and authentic korean entrees!
Veganista // the best ice cream shop! all vegan and they have an amazing selection of ice cream to choose from! can't tell that it's vegan, soooooo good!

Justizpalast // such a dreamy space, who would've thought this is Vienna's Supreme Court. entry is free, you can see what I mean here.
Schonbrunn Palace // stunning palace, sadly it was a bit too cold so there were no blooms surrounding the palace and garden but still worth a visit!
Gloriette // a cafe with a stunning view of Schonbrunn, go uphill from Schonbrunn and you'll be able to see the cafe
Saint Stephen's Cathedral // you can go to the top and see stunning views of Vienna, definitely worth a visit! probably my favorite thing about Vienna
Peterskirche // the oldest church building, a small beautiful church in the center of Vienna
Mozarthaus // a look into Mozart's apartment while he was living in Vienna
MuseumsQuartier // a gem in Vienna, perfect area to relax from walking around and sightseeing. plenty of places to eat 
Natural History Museum // one of the largest museums in Austria with an incredible collection that has a lot to offer for every age
Belvedere Palace and Museum // one of the more well known museums due to its large collection of Gustav Klimt, including the Kiss painting which is one of my favorites!
Hundertwasser House // probably one of the highlight's of my trip! a colorful, unique building by Hundertwasser that you can't miss! His museum is couple of blocks away, free with the Vienna pass, where you can see his artworks

Other suggestions: Austrian National Library, Naschmarket (only open on Saturday, an outdoor market stall that offers fresh food, antiques, etc), Vienna State Opera, City Hall
