I’m pretty excited to share this with you guys. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while, and I cannot wait to release it into the world…

Every summer, we are lucky enough to get a tonne of visitors through Vienna and without fail, each will ask me;

‘Where should we eat, what should we do, what do I need to see?’

Being a mildly narcissistic former tour guide and absolute nerd, I LOVE sharing my insider tips on where my friends and family should visit. I would send epically long Facebook messages, meet them in Schönbrunn to show my hidden secret spots, and spend hours figuring out the perfect itinerary to really show them my Vienna, the city that has bewitched me for the last 4 years.

What to eat, see and do in Vienna

Where do you even begin with all this?!

And then I realised…what if I could share this with all my friends? Every reader, Facebook friend and extended family member who came to visit and I maybe didn’t have the time to see personally. I know when I visit a new city, I want the inside word on the best places to eat, what’s the actual cool bar to visit with locals and what are the best sites beyond the tourist trail.

So I decided to put all my insider Vienna advice in a book.

An easy to download, easy to read on your phone or tablet, e-book.

And because I’m also married to a spreadsheet-planning, map-adoring Austrian dork, I included customised map links so you can read about the awesome places to go and then have your very own google maps to get there!

Introducing the Austrian Adaptation Insider’s Guide to Vienna

In which my head becomes the size of an historical monument!

In it I share;

  • The inside scoop on the BEST Italian restaurant in Vienna,
  • Where to find the best cocktail bar in Austria (hint: it’s in Vienna)
  • The greatest rainy-day museum in the city
  • The number one place to enjoy hipster coffee and more!

Every single place in there has been hand-picked as one of my faves after many, many visits. It’s the true locals guide to this incredible city.

This guide is designed for the traveller, local or newly arrived expat who wants to make the most of the underrated city of Vienna.

It’s been quite a while in the making, and I hope you will love it as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. You can download your copy here
