Vienna also has a wide-ranging programme of activities for tourists and locals in autumn. Here are some tips and recommendations on how to spend your time relaxing in the autumn months.

#1 Visiting a coffee house

From classic-traditional coffee houses to stylishly modern in-cafes, Vienna offers the perfect location for every audience to enjoy their coffee. In Austria and Vienna in particular, people love coffee and the tradition that comes with, which is reflected in the variety of offers from all ages.

In the centre of the first district is the Palmenhaus in the Burggarten. After a walk through the city centre and the Burggarten you can stop here and warm up with a cup of coffee or a hot chocolate.

#2 Heuriger

If you are in Vienna at autumn time, don't miss the high season of the Viennese "Heuriger"! The traditional wine taverns of Grinzing, Heiligenstadt, Neustift, Stammersdorf, Nussdorf and Mauer are still within the city walls, but the atmosphere is more rural and relaxing.

#3 Autumn walk

For a cozy autumn walk in and around Vienna there are fantastic hiking and walking trails, such as through the Türkenschanzpark or the Wiener Prater.

In the Lainzer Tiergarten you can even watch the wildlife park while walking and maybe cross paths with one or the other native animal!

#4 Cinema visit

In addition to the big mainstream cinemas, Vienna also offers a large variety of smaller but more charming cinemas.

The Stadtkino, for example, is one of the oldest arthouse cinemas in Vienna and is located in the Künstlerhaus on Karlsplatz. They show mainly Austrian productions.

The Filmmuseum, on the other hand, plays some films in its original language and focuses on film as an artistic work and stimulates discussions on many different aspects.

#5 Spend a rainy day in the museum

If the weather puts a spoke in the wheel, you can still get culturally rewarded by visiting a museum and learn more about arts or natural sciences.  

Tip: Until the beginning of 2020, the famous watercolour of Albrecht Dürer's field rabbit will be exhibited in the Albertina. In addition to this highlight, the Albertina also has more than 140 other works, which makes it the world's most important collection of drawings by Albrecht Dürer.
