8 divine urban oases to chill out on mild summer evenings

Beach feelings, chilled spots and bars in the big city

There are countless urban oases in Vienna. While they are often well hidden, many have developed into the Austrian capital’s hotspots. They are a place where you can escape the everyday, if only for a few hours, and simply leave all your cares behind.

Where are the most beautiful city oases?

Strandbar Herrmann – city oases

Every year, Strandbar Hermann draws young and old to enjoy a few cocktails in the Hermannpark. Here, you can get comfortable in loungers and enjoy the unique view of the Urania and the Donaukanal (Danube Canal). At the weekend, it plays host to a beach breakfast and on Sunday, you can start the day with a yoga session.
