The Strudlhof Steps
are one of Vienna's best known and even legendary landmarks. One of Austria's noteworthy literary works, The Strudlhof Steps
by Heimito von Doderer, is named after them. The Hotel & Palais Strudlhof
is located right next to them, in the heart of the old imperial city - or better yet, in the midst of Vienna's intellectual center, in the university district.
In the immediate environs is the Josefinum, a part of Vienna Medical University that contains the largest collection of old medical literature in German-speaking Europe and an excellent exhibition of wax anatomical models from the late Baroque period. Also within short walking distance is the apartment of Sigmund Freud and the adjacent museum, where you can follow the history of psychoanalysis to its very founder.
The Hotel & Palais Strudlhof is thus a place with a special aura where you can enjoy all the comfort of a 4-star hotel, where amenities and service fulfill the highest international standards.
13 seminar rooms are at your disposal in the neo-classical Palais Strudlhof, which is surrounded by a large park with age-old shady trees.
What does the Strudlhof have to offer? In the neighborhood you will find cozy taverns and restaurants, as well as the Volksoper and Palais Liechtenstein, Vienna's Ring Road (Ringstrasse), and the Old Stock Exchange. You can also take a nearby tram straight to the city's Heuriger taverns in Grinzing or Nussdorf.
The trendy bars and restaurants under the raised train tracks on the Gürtel Road and the Summer Stage on the banks of the Danube canal during the warmer months can be reached within a few minutes.
An insider's tip: Take a stroll on the lighted Strudlhof Steps at night. Enjoy the magic of this jewel of Jugendstil-era architecture and let yourself be transported back to another century!
