WIEN MITTE The Mall | SHOP. EAT. DRINK.

A new MALL in town

WIEN MITTE The Mall | SHOP. EAT. DRINK.

The area around the station Landstrasse – Wien Mitte has been an unfriendly dark place for a long time, which was replaced by years of construction sites.  I couldn’t imagine that this would change any time soon. But what a surprising sight that was, when I visited the place last week. A specious Mall in ultra modern architecture invites to stay a bit longer than the few minutes to walk through, from one subway to another.

Well done! And so badly need for Vienna Tourists as WIEN MITTE is an important central transport hub with 10 public transport lines intersect here. Not to forget the CAT (City Airport Train) which goes directly to and from the Airport in no time. Now passengers can have a casual drink or quick meal in one of the lovely places.

One highlight for sure is the world’s biggest Vapiano right on the corner of The Mall Wien Mitte.

Carefully designed by architect and Interior Designer Matteo Thun with the central role: the old Olivetree, which makes you feel like having a short holiday during your lunch break.

The opening hours allow to shop casually without any rush after work at the new shopping center in the middle of Vienna:

Monday to Wednesday: 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Thursday to Friday: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

And the Restaurants score with generous opening hours 7 days a week:

Monday to Wednesday: 9a.m. – 11p.m.
Thursday to Saturday: 9a.m. – 12p.m.
Sunday: 9a.m. – 10p.m.

I think I will use that as an additional excuse in the future to stop for a break, when having to change from the U3 to the U4 or going to the airport.

The Vienna Ice Dream | Wiener Eistraum

Vienna Ice Dream 2014

The Vienna Ice Dream | Wiener Eistraum

The twenties anniversary of Vienna’s Ice Dream goes slightly but slowly to an end. Only one more week to enjoy the magical scenery with a 7,000 m2 area, which offers a fantastic icy landscape for skating fans.

I had a fantastic girls-night-out last Saturday, and just can highly recommend not to miss this opportunitiy in the middle of Vienna’s most beautiful history buildings on the Ring Street.

Don’t worry, if you don’t own a pair of ice-skates. There is a perfectly organized Skate rental, which offers a pair for 6,50 a day. Over 1,200 pairs of skating boots are pre-heated with warm air throughout the day.

Various booths and a great rustic mountain lodge spoil guests with culinary delights and make it very comfortable for the ones, who don’t like to skate.

This area of Paris can be a dreamlike experience or a tourist nightmare.

Montmartre - Paris - Sacre Coeur

Countless people want to see the sunset over Paris every evening from the steps infront of the Basilika Sacré-Cœur (sacred heart). Honestly, I like the sacred hill in the 18th arrondissement much better during the morning hours.

Strolling around is a pleasure, but the Montmartrobus is the perfect alternative to explore the hill without walking.

You will find many charming places to have a coffee or lunch.

There are so many options to get a glimpse of what the french saying “savoir vivre” really means.

I really tried my best this time to find the quiet places in Paris and did not so bad.

If you read my post about preparing for the family trip, you know how my first holidays turned out here. Lesson learned.

Rue Cortot. Paris.

My favorite place to eat was definitely

Chez Ginette

Montmartre Paris café Chez_Ginette

A relaxed place, excellent quality, prices very reasonable for Paris and the service super friendly.
