There's something for everyone! Close to the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi, you can find the Viennese Giant Ferris Wheel, a must-see if you are a family with kids!

Sissi-fans get ready!
The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi

During her lifetime Sissi was revered and admired by the Viennese, because the beautiful empress brought a touch of glamour and elegance to the stuffy society of the imperial court. She was an eccentric opposite to her husband, the rational Kaiser Franz Joseph I. Still to this day the charm of Empress Elisabeth of Austria is present in Vienna and the detailed interior design of the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi is a worthy monument to her. Everywhere in the hotel you can see playful accessories, fun details and romantic pictures reminiscent of Sissi’s relaxed elegance.
