Solo dining tips for Vienna
If you feel self-conscious when dining alone there are plenty of places that are happy to serve your meal at the bar. Weinbar Unger & Klein, Rudolfsplatz and Osteria Cantina Friulana, Bartensteingasse are just two examples. If you do not fancy that option, try one of the city’s many traditional Kaffeehauses. They are very informal and friendly places, which a lot of the city’s solo residents use, on a regular basis.
In Vienna, there are also plenty of opportunities to eat in people’s homes. Usually, you will be sat around a big table with other guests. In that situation, conversation tends to flow easily.
Book yourself some guided tours
For solo travelers, tours are a fantastic option. They make meeting likeminded people really easy. So, if you like the company of others, tours are for you.
Vienna has hundreds for you to choose from. It really does not matter what your tastes are you can find a tour to suit you. Most guides pay particular attention to solo members of the group, so you should feel well looked after.
Finding solo accommodation in Vienna
Not every solo traveler wants to stay in a huge hotel room with a double or twin beds. Doing so can work out expensive. Plus, having to pay high single room supplements is annoying, to say the least. It can put a real dampener on your trip.
A much better approach is to use accommodation providers who have taken the time to cater specifically for solo travelers. Many homeowners who rent out space to travelers have single rooms available.
Quite a few of the hostels do too, and they are very reasonably priced. The Wombats City Hostel is a particularly good example of this style of accommodation. But, if you want a good night’s sleep, remember to book a room on one of the upper floors. That way you are less likely to be disturbed by the noise from the lively bar.
Keeping the costs down
As you can see, there really is no shortage of things for the solo traveler to enjoy in Vienna. But, it is not a particularly cheap city to stay in, which is why it is worth shopping around for the best deals. If you are planning to visit several of the city’s attractions consider buying a Vienna Pass. This will save you a lot of money on entrance fees and the cost of traveling around the city.
