The Perfect Location for Hotel Henriette: Leopoldstadt, Vienna

What “Kiez” is to the Berliners, “Grätzel” is to the Viennese – that is, the neighbourhood which you mainly move around in (on foot), where you live, shop, and maybe even work. Simply the area where you feel a sense of belonging.  And Henriette's Grätzel? Definitely Vienna's second district, the Leopoldstadt!

Especially the Praterstrasse and the surrounding districts: the Czerninviertel, the Afrikaner and Rotensternviertel all the way to the Karmeliterviertel. The green Prater is just as much a part of it as the Danube Canal – two places to relax that couldn’t be more different!

Balthasar Kaffee Bar

Not our coffee? That's right! When we want to give our portafilters a break, we head over to Balthasar for a quick or sometimes even a leisurely coffee. And maybe also for an almond croissant or a pain au chocolat.

Mochi & o.m.k Deli

Japanese food in Vienna? Why not? Mochi and its little take-away sister o.m.k Deli have been among the best and most innovative Japanese restaurants in Vienna for years. And definitely amongst the most stylish!

Dogenhof & Supersense

“Simply honest good food and drink” (full stop). A motto we like just as much as the spectacular ambience, the open fireplace, the excellent food and the analogue world of the Supersense Concept Store right next door to the Hotel Henriette. Everything here has been thought through, down to the finest detail.

Gelati Alberti

From the Henriette City Hotel to ice cream paradise is just 66 metres. The Albertis have been making real Italian ice cream in Vienna since 1906, and in the second district since 1959. It makes us look forward to the next ice cream season every year. Two scoops or three? We can never decide!

Café Ansari

More than just a café here on Praterstrasse, Ansari offers Georgian and Mediterranean cuisine all day long with the appropriate wine accompaniment. We prefer to sit outside in the garden under the large plane trees at the quiet beginning of Praterstraße to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city of Vienna.

The construction of the subway under Praterstrasse plunged the area into a real crisis in the 1970s.
