Are you curious as to why Vienna has been named the world’s most liveable city? You will never truly understand until you make a trip in person to this gorgeous historical centre.
Everything in Vienna is just bigger, brighter and more efficient; from the incredibly successful public transport system to the exciting range of events and parties to attend, you will never be stuck for something to do.
Vienna is just one of those cities that has managed to make each one of its corners pretty and charming. With a range of architectural styles that were derived from different artistic periods and historical milestones on show throughout the city, it makes for a fascinating walking tour.
One of the most famous tourist destinations is the Naschmarkt, Vienna’s most visited food market. Here you can pick up some of the freshest of Austrian ingredients or rather dine alfresco in one of the traditional restaurants that surround the stalls.
Vienna’s heyday never ended at the Grand Ferdinand – a stunning, rediscovered 1950s building where good times and good food are now the name of the game. Think marble floors, grand chandeliers and delicious Viennese cuisine.
The Grand Ferdinand has grand elegance nailed. Visit the lush courtyard for a quiet afternoon tea then onto the modern rooftop pool, the hotel happily has a foot in both the past and the present, offering guests the best of both worlds.
Set on the historic Ringstrasse, all of Vienna’s famous cultural gems are on your doorstep, from the Konzertsall (said to have the best acoustics in the world) to the Spanish riding school, St Stephen’s Cathedral and the Hapsburg residence. Discover a victorious Vienna.
Generously sized rooms with touches of Baroque mixed with bold colour palettes and mid-century furniture – Grand Ferdinand is unique in its approach to design. Roll top baths and open plan bathrooms sit with chaise lounges, there’s plenty of space to completely relax.
Nibbles & Tipples
Grand Ferdinand’s fine dining restaurant brings back the elegant traditions and cuisine of Austria’s empire builders, the Habsburgs.
With three restaurants for everything from casual to fine dining, you’re spoilt for choice at Grand Ferdinand. Pop into Gulasch & Champagne for small plates of Austrian comfort food or a quick glass of bubbly on your way out.
