Area & Activities

Right in The Majestic City Centre

Living culture. More than 50 theatres and opera houses, as well as 100 museums, invite visitors to enjoy cultural highlights. After all, in no other city of the world have lived and worked so many world-famous composers. The waltz time of former centuries still permeates exhilarating dance-hall nights. Tradition blends harmoniously with modern day, and the Viennese congeniality adds to Vienna's charming hustle and bustle.

Centrally situated in the heart of the city, the Hotel Imperial is within walking distance of such renowned sites as the Vienna State Opera: the oldest theatrical institution in the German-speaking world, the Musikverein: one of the top three concert halls in the world, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral, consecrated in 1147.

Equally accessible is Vienna’s best shopping. The city is renowned for Swarovski crystal, Augarten porcelain, linen, and quilts--along with the Imperial Torte. These items, in addition to designer boutiques like Gucci, Prada, YSL, Armani, Valentino, and more, are just a ten-minute walk from the hotel.

General shopping hours are Monday-Saturday 10 am to 7 pm. Shops are closed on Sunday. During the Christmas holidays, nearly all shops and restaurants are closed on December 25th and 26th.

Many tours are available around the city. The “Grand City Tour” is an exceptional way to see the entire city, while the Art Nouveau, Vienna Woods, Danube Panorama, and Wachau Danube Valley tours provide an in-depth examination of particular Viennese treasures.

The official language of Austria is German, and the currency is the Euro.
The electrical system is standard European 220 Volt.
