After creating the hashtag #HietzingNews on Instagram, I was surprised how many people have been interested in News of this tiny little part of Vienna. The 13th district is a rather quiet area.
Sometimes I forget, that not everyone is addicted to Smartphones and Instagram. Maybe it is a smart idea to post some of my favorite shots randomly here on the blog too. Did you know that you can easily browse through Instagram on your desktop too?
My favorite of my childhood was Zanoni. They still offer great ice-cream, but the place, even though it is so huge, it is so unbelievable packed with people in summer that you barely can breath. Vienna never had a lack of good ice-cream. Stores on every corner. Yet there opened so many new Gelaterias in the last years. Centuries it seemed to be an Italian domain and the red-white-green flag was kind of part of the interior. Suddenly there popped up Ice cream Stores and Bars with new concepts. First it was the colorful Frozen Yogurt hype. Good for me, as I like Yogurt most, but a good FroYo lives from the fresh and creative topics, which weren’t that fresh too often.
A short walk from the U4 Hietzing underground station and one of the entrances of Schönbrunn Palace, you will find a viennese coffeehouse gem.
The Café Dommayer.
Opened daily from 7AM to 10PM there are many opportunities you will find to enjoy your time here.
Be it a short break for a quick Espresso, a small Macaroon, which is called Laakrone here, or an extended breakfast with newspapers and magazines from all over the world. It is the viennese way to have all the news of the world for the price of a ‚cheap‘ cup of coffee. Different like in most cities: You can spend hours with just an small amount of 1-4 Euros.
