Large selection of daily special flavours. Great flavour and quality, with generally less sugar than alternative places. The forest strawberry icecream is legend, and worth the extra price. There regular strawberry icecreams (sour cream, yoghurt, regular) are also particularly good. That said, mango or nocciolone...More

The selection of flavours here was amazing, and the gelato was creamy. They have quick service, so even when the line is out the door it's worth waiting the five minutes to get in and try some of the best gelato in Vienna.

For a long time we wisit this establishment, as this is where you get the best ice-cream in Vienna. Sometimes it is very difficult to get a place there.

Family-run place, always very busy as it is next to tube and tram stations. A huge selection of organic and vegan ice-creams available. Can be highly recommended!

Stopped here before catching boat trip. Huge selection of ice creams and sundaes. Good photographs of each product with descriptions in German and English. Almost too hard to choose! Service fast and products delicious. Not cheap but worth every penny!

The variety of ice cream and gelato dishes available here is impressive. Besides amazing gelato (we had lemon), the different creations of ice cream Sundays and other assortments of dishes is significant. The Carmella had more walnuts than one would imagine along with great vanilla...More

Huge ice cream parlour with a cafe attached. However most people buy their ice creams and eat them in the street immediately. Fantastic quality gelato. I had a tute with 2 flavours, chocolate and stracciatella. It was fantastic. Cost was something like €3. Must be...More

The ice-cream was nothing exceptional to be honest. I believe it's quite an overrated place. Customer service is pretty much non-existent. Rude staff. They can barely speak English or German. As I said the gelato is below average...

The ice-cream here is fantastic! They have daily flavours that you need to go and check out because they really do change each day and sometimes you won't ever see that flavour again. There are two ways of eating here, you can sit down and...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
