Bar in The Hofburg & Around

Image by Carly Hulls Lonely Planet

Housed in a beautifully restored Jungendstil palm house with high arched ceilings, glass walls and steel beams, looking through into the adjacent Schmetterlinghaus (butterfly house), the Palmenhouse opens onto a glorious covered summer terrace facing the Burggarten. The relaxed, welcoming ambience makes it ideal for a glass of wine or coffee. DJs occasionally spin on weekend evenings.

Classic Austrian dishes (mains €16.80 to €32) such as schnitzel are excellent; reserve ahead if you plan on dining.
