Ruby Sofie

Because we had a great time in Ruby Marie, we decided to visit also the Ruby Sofie. It is located at the Marxergasse 17. The building is impressive and the Sofiensäle got its name from Archduchess Sophie of Austria. Since 2013 the Sofiensäle is home of Ruby Sofie hotel, who has incorporated many historic details of the location into its interior.

The nearest Underground station to reach the hotel is with the U3 and U4 direction Landstrasse. Near the hotel is also the famous Hundertwasserhaus.

The best part of Ruby Sofie is its interior, which impresses all the time and the fabulous breakfast. The rooms have its charm and it as in Ruby Marie taken care about the details. Love their boy and girl shampoos under the wide shower. With specific charm and an eye for details Ruby Sofie is definitely a place to visit.

Figlmüller

Once at Vienna there is definitely a place you should visit if you are hungry. Figlmüller Restaurants are famous for “legendary” stakes from pork “the Schnitzel” with more than 110 years tradition. The first opened Figlmüller is located on Wollzeile, right behind St. Stephen’s Cathedral. From the start it stood for the unparalleled Viennese way of life.

Although, one can now choose between four restaurants of “Figlmüller Group”, we decided to visit the “original”, opened in 1905. All we can say about it is that it was more than worth. The stakes tastes as promised, crispy and tender, I tried the turkey version and it was tasteful as well. My advice is not to forget to taste their salad as well. They are really, really good (potato,…) and made with best and fresh ingredients. Prices are reasonable, meal for two, with one big salad and drinks will cost you around 50 EUR.

The restaurant is definitely worth a visit when you come to Vienna, although we strongly recommend to make a reservation beforehand (https://www.figlmueller.at/en/) if you want to get a table in the time of lunch or dinner. The restaurant is mostly full and you’ll be directed to the next Figlmüller around the corner.
