Forget the criticisms about drinks snacks and coffee. This place is all about ice creams. You don’t have a menu you get a thick catalogue of deserts. You could spend your entire vacation here and not have everyone. We were there on a Sunday afternoon...More

We went there every day. The place itself is not spectacular but the icecream definitely is. Great selection to go and great menu if you want to sit down. Only better icecream we found in San Giminiano.

Worst icecream ever! I went there because I saw a long queue outside, and thought the "italian icream" they mention was good. Awful. TERRIBLE. I threw it in the bin. Italian icecream is totally another thing, our "gelato" is something you can taste every flavor...More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
