3 ideas against the autumn blues in Vienna

For some, the change might have been a bit too abrupt: the sun was tickling your skin in the beautiful late summer weather and suddenly you're shivering in the fog - the time change and the early dawn are doing the rest. So, what to do to avoid finding yourself right in the autumn blues? Here are three wonderful autumnal ideas for Vienna.

Fresh air booster in the colorful Viennese parks

Around 50% of Vienna's urban area is covered with water or green space. The choice of parks where you can give your immune system a boost with exercise and spicy autumn air in the middle of colorful leaves is correspondingly large. As far as size is concerned, the Prater scores points, of course, especially since a stroll through the fun “Würstelprater” is a good idea after a walk in the green part. It's just as colorful inside as it is outside at the Ponykarussell Cafe, which describes itself as a mix of merry-go-round, jungle and indulgence den.

Even more central is the city park on the ring boulevard! Once laid out by a landscape painter, it scores with winding paths, varied plantings and a romantic pond in the middle. You don't have to go hungry here either, the time-honored Cafe Prückel is located directly across the street and invites you to enjoy creamy melange and tender apple strudel.

Not quite as centrally located, but very scenic is the Türkenschanzpark in Vienna's 18th district. Furthermore, the park scores with several playgrounds for children. With the Meierei, there is also a place to enjoy a bite to eat in Türkenschanzpark.

Blues time-out for the eyes in the museum

When it gets really uncomfortable outside, you can finally rush back to the museums with full motivation. And they have a lot to offer in Vienna in the fall. In the Albertina we can be inspired by the diversity of the exceptional artist Basquiat. With his often politically charged works, he caused a sensation in the USA, especially in the 1980s.

Want to join in? At the exhibition "Idols & Rivals - Artists in Competition" at the Museum of Art History, we can vote on which work we think is more successful: Titian or Rubens, Michelangelo or Giambologna?

If you want something more up to date, you can admire the winning posters of the "100 BEST POSTERS 21" competition at the Museum of Applied Arts. From climate change to Corona to equal rights, they reflect the hot topics of our time.

Seduction for nose and palate at wine tasting

For those who find movement and art too exciting, it is best to embark on a tasteful journey into the world of wine. Vienna offers great winemakers and wine taverns, but especially in November it is worthwhile to discover the Viennese countryside with regard to wine. Göttlesbrunn is considered the heart of the Carnuntum wine region. With a lot of passion and attention to detail, the village is once again organizing the Leopoldigang on November 19 and 20, giving visitors the opportunity to taste wines from countless winemakers in the village. Even a bus shuttle to the nearest train station is provided, so you can confidently leave the car in Vienna.

Whether in the Viennese parks, with culture or wine – VIENNA YOUR WAY wishes you a relaxing autumn!
