Metropolis in the center of Europe. Founded 2000 years ago, Vienna was the center of the Habsburg Empire for six hundred years. And the city on the blue Danube is green, as half of Vienna is parks, meadows, and vineyards. Amidst the idyllic Baroque and Biedermeier atmosphere you will find a bustling center. Vienna, the cosmopolitan hub, has multifunctional conference centers, and its new fairground makes the Danube metropolis one of the most up-to-date convention locations in Europe. Vienna has also been the seat of the United Nations since 1967. Visitors arrive at Vienna from more than 140 international destinations in some 65 countries in the world. Living culture. More than 50 theaters and opera houses as well as 100 museums invite visitors to enjoy cultural highlights. After all, in no other city of the world have lived and worked so many world-famous composers: Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, Haydn, Mahler, and Schonberg among them. The waltz time of former centuries still permeates exhilarating dance-hall nights. Yes, the Vienna Waltz originated here. Tradition blends harmoniously with modern day, and the Viennese congeniality adds to Vienna's charming hustle and bustle. The innumerable Viennese cafes are favourite spots for both local and international coffee lovers. The sumptuous surroundings of the Hotel Imperial were originally created in 1863 as the Vienna residence of the prince of Wurttemberg. The stately palace on the magnificent Ring Boulevard was transformed into the Hotel Imperial for the universal exhibition in 1873. The hotel gained renown around the world as a byword for discretion and impeccable service. The Hotel Imperial takes pride in pampering and delighting discerning travelers, those who are accustomed to staying at the best addresses. Their stay shall be crowned by every conceivable amenity. Cafe Imperial Traditional Kaffeehauses are intrinsic to Austrian culture. It has even been argued that, in days past, nearly two Nobel Prize winners were seated at every table in a Viennese Kaffeehaus. The Cafe Imperial carries on this charming custom serving aromatic brews and tempting bites. Writers and politicians, business people and leisure guests alike receive first-class service from our experienced waiters known as Men in Black, who are eager to share their profound knowledge of the huge variety of Viennese coffee beverages available in the cafe. Favorites include: • Kleiner oder Großer Brauner: Coffee with coffee cream or milk. • Verlangerter schwacher Kaffee: A weaker brew with or without cream. • Melange: Half coffee and half hot, whisked milk. • Schwarzer kleiner oder großer: Plain black coffee. • Mokka kleiner oder großer: Very strong black coffee. • Einspanner: Coffee with whipped cream served in a glass. • Fiaker oder Phariser: Black coffee with rum and whipped cream served in a glass. • Kaffee Amadeus: Coffee with Mozartliqueur and whipped cream. • Kaiser Melange: Coffee with an egg yolk and whipped cream. In addition to coffee, the Cafe Imperial serves lunch and dinner. Live piano music is featured Saturdays and Sundays from 3:30pm-7:30pm. Breakfast deluxe. Rumor has it that the perfect day begins with having breakfast at the Cafe Imperial. Enjoy a glass of champagne while choosing your favorite at the buffet. In the meantime, omelettes or fried eggs are prepared in front of your eyes. The morning sun rises above fresh fruit and honey – a festival of the senses. Daily international newspapers make sure you are well informed right from the beginning of the day. This is how we interpret a morning of style in Vienna! Restaurant Imperial The Restaurant Imperial is the ideal spot for a truly refined, yet relaxed, Viennese dining experience. Elegant wood-paneled walls wrap the room and provide the backdrop for portraits of Austrian royalty like Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sisi. Exquisitely laid tables are intimate, but spaciously arranged to ensure diners’ privacy. Richly colored carpets harmonize with similarly toned chairs upholstered in contrasting, complementary patterns. Candlelight and wall sconces illuminate the room with a muted, golden glow. Service under the watchful eye of Maitre d’ Christ is equally impressive. Christ has been with the Hotel Imperial for 32 years and his “youngest” staff member is a 16-year veteran. Formerly known as Restaurant zur Majestat, the restaurant continues to serve select meat and fish dishes the traditional way—directly at the table. Along with its new name, the restaurant has changed its formerly formal service to a more relaxed style without compromising quality. While select classic dishes like Wiener Schnitzel are always on offer, our chef creates a different five-course gourmet dinner every week, combining traditional Viennese cuisine with international ingredients. The results are exceptional creations that tempt the palate. Fine desserts made with a dash of Vienna's most exquisite sweet wines are a harmonious finale to an incredible meal. For fine wine aficionados, head sommelier Manfred Legl is always on hand with recommendations ranging from renowned Austrian vintners to those of Burgundy, Bordeaux, and other parts of the world. Thanks to its gourmet food and excellent service, Restaurant Imperial was, once again, is toque-awarded by Gault Millau. Bar Maria Theresia Rich royal red and a timeless 19th Century Viennese decor typify Bar Maria Theresia. Golden accents and polished wood add to the sophisticated regal ambience.
