There is something so charming and dreamy about enjoying a city from above. You become attached to the city’s vibes and city life either busy, aristocratic, neoclassical and you let yourself go in the stunning views…These are the best rooftops that I frequented when I lived in Vienna..

 Café Bar Bloom, Hotel Lamée

Best Rooftops in Vienna By Elisavet Chatzigaki for E for Elegance

 

This is a rooftop bar I used to visit often for early drinks or late lunch when at the centre. It is the rooftop of Hotel Lamée, a fantastic spot, very stylish crowds and charming views of the city centre of Vienna as it’s breathes away from the grandly imposing Stephansdom.

View spot: Stephansdom, city centre roof tops.

Le Loft, Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom

A glamorous spot, with 360 views of Vienna and the Danube Canal. Even St. Stephen’s Cathedral is clearly visible. The restaurant ‘Loft’ serves gourmet cuisine or a delicious brunch. I loved it on Sundays for a late brunch or Saturdays late for cocktails as it has a fantastic bar.

The interior design is also spectacular as it has stunningly designed ceiling that hovers like a canopy over the guests.

 View spot: 360 views of the city centre

Sky Bar, Steffl Department Store

Best Rooftops in Vienna By Elisavet Chatzigaki for E for Elegance

This is one of my favourite rooftops in the city centre because it is above luxury fashion department store, Steffl. I usually went for an afternoon coffee and dessert after exhausting the shoes corner or even early drinks as in the evenings it gets even more cozy with fewer people as the department store is closed..+ jazz tunes. Even before you reach the rooftop the views get stunning as it’s right on Kärntner Strasse, the most famous shopping street in Vienna.  A glass elevator at the outside of Steffl Department Store lifts you nine levels up.

The modern bar and restaurant boast a cute, not to large, outdoor terrace. Wherever you choose to sit, Stephansdom and the city centre’s rooftops are right there for you to get lost in. View spot: Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and city centre, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Dachboden Bar, 25 Hours Hotel

Best Rooftops in Vienna By Elisavet Chatzigaki for E for Elegance

A modern, stylish rooftop with youthful, minimal character. You can enjoy your aperitif or snack in a relaxed atmosphere. You will likely meet locals at the ‘Dachboden’ (‘attic’) as the bar is unusually popular (for a hotel bar) with the Viennese. Some evening after 7pm the bar, changed to a ‘Salon Hermes’ with rhythms of swing pop and cha cha cha.. 

View spot: Ringstrasse to city centre; Museum of Natural History and Museum of Fine Arts

Atmosphere Bar, The Ritz-Carlton Vienna

This bar is not just divine being the rooftop of Ritz Carlton but primarily because it offers 360-degree views of Vienna’s famous sites such as the green copper dome of Karlskirche, the Ottakring and Kahlenberg hills and the Stephansdom district. Vienna’s colorful rooftops and amazing city vibes just keep you captivated. The Atmosphere Rooftop Bar & Lounge is located on the 8th floor and is only open during the summer season.
