LieblingsFisch! at Karmelitermarkt
Karmelitermarkt along with its surrounding areas is considered as one of the most attractive parts of the city. With its amazing atmosphere and youthful vibes, the market offers everything from interesting food to contemporary art. Simply stroll, browse, and enjoy the local vibe.
Many of the small market stalls consist of just one or two small rooms, which can also function as a restaurant. This brings us to LieblingsFisch. As you might have already guessed by the name, LieblingsFisch´s inviting little store is serving up fresh and saltwater fish. Flavourful fish and fresh seafood might be hard to come by in a landlocked country, but their cooperation with the well-known fishmonger Eishken Estate makes it all possible. Everything is first class, which should come as no surprise since they have Peter Zinter on their side - one of the best chefs in the country!

The Albertina Museum in Vienna holds one of the world’s largest and most important graphic art collections from all periods of history. The museum radiates elegance and the intricate architecture makes you feel as if you are stepping back in time. It's inside a majestic building that used to be the city's largest residential palace during the Habsburg monarchy.
Their Permanent exhibition is dropping the hottest names in art, from Monet to Picasso. Apart from the graphics collection the museum often houses temporary exhibitions, so we suggest you keep your eye on their website to see what's happening next.
