From Mozart to Schubert, Vienna has a rich music and entertainment history. Some still define the Austrian capital by its refined past, but we know there’s plenty of places to get down and dirty in the city. If that’s what you’re looking for, read ahead for our guide to 72 hours in Vienna!
The last few minutes of the drive from Vienna Airport to the Park Hyatt Vienna is a parade of architecture so stunning a part of you wishes the journey will never end. The larger part of you (that loves the finer things) is happy to get to your plush, stunning hotel room. The bed looks tempting, but you have an even better treat: a Michellin star lunch at [aend]. Unconventional and elegant, the space might be minimalistic, but you quickly find the quality of the three-course lunch knows no bounds.

After an exquisite wine-paired tasting menu you’re ready for Vienna’s most exclusive night out: Babenberger Passage, which lies right in Vienna’s historic centre. Once an underpass linking the Museum of Art History and the Hofburg Palace, now it’s the city’s most exciting club. High-end and ultra-fashionable, the tables are the hottest in Vienna, but with our concierge service you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the capital’s most prestigious crowd.
The night is full of high spirits and high-end spirits, and before you know it you’re back at the Park Hyatt. The bed is exactly what you need and you soon sink into sleep.

You shower and have breakfast at the hotel, but you’re quickly out to MuseumsQuartier, where you take your pick of cultural institutions that any city in the world would be lucky to have. After enriching your mind you stroll through the city, taking in some of its magnificent cathedrals like St. Francis of Assisi Church and St. Stephen’s.
Ready to eat, you jump in a cab to your reservation at Amador, which has amassed a startling three-stars. After your first bite, it’s easy to see why. The gastronomic experience is spell-binding.
Then it’s time to take in one of Vienna’s many fine green spaces, so you head to the riverside Donaupark. Although it’s in the heart of the city, it feels like an escape to nature thanks to its size and the variety of flora on show. After heading to the highest point of the park and taking in a panoramic view of the capital, you meander back down to the centre and Mozarthaus, where you learn more about the iconic composer in the apartment he once lived in.
It’s soon time for another starred dinner, this time at the inventive Pramerl and the Wolf. One of the city’s hottest tables, regionality and quality turn this from fine dining into something truly special.

After being fed and watered like never before, you’re ready to hit the club. You head straight to Cella Vie for a 1st class evening at the aviation themed venue that oozes luxury. You’re shepherded past the vast queue thanks to the table you reserved through our concierge service, and are immediately given a selection of fine caviar, champagne, and spirits. You split the night between sipping cocktails in the relaxed lounge area, at your table enjoying the exclusivity of your surroundings, and on the dance floor with Vienna’s coolest partiers. Soon it’s back to the Hyatt for one last night on your cloud of a bed, and you fall asleep with a smile on your face.
