Vienna’s cafes, bars, and amazing rooftops are some of the fondest memories for any visitor. Here we speak of seven of the best rooftop bars that enable you to see all of Vienna. Located in the Austrian capital, most of these give you a 360-degree view of all of Vienna at your disposal.
Atmosphere Bar, The Ritz-Carlton Vienna
This Vienna terrace bar is not just amazing because it is on the rooftop of the Ritz-Carlton. This L-shaped wonder gives 360-degree views of Vienna’s famous places, such as the green copper dome of the Hofburg, the Ottakring and Kahlenberg hills, and the Stephansdom district. Vienna’s colorful, rooftop-laden view just keeps you captivated.
In addition to luxurious rooms, the Ritz-Carlton in Vienna offers a magnificent roof terrace bar. The Atmosphere Rooftop Bar & Lounge is located on the 8th floor and is only open during the summer season from 16 to 24 hours (on weekends from 12 noon). Thanks to its location in the heart of the city, guests can enjoy a great view of the whole of Vienna. Served with alcoholic drinks, cocktails, wine, champagne, and small snacks and desserts.

Dachboden, 25 Hours Hotel
Sitting on the roof of the 25Hours Hotel right next to MuseumsQuartier, the Dachboden has some stunning views of Vienna and deserves a mention on this list.

On offer, you’ll find some mouthwatering Austrian wines and beers, plus well-known spirits, to keep you going through the evening. Furthermore, their outside deck gives you a view of Vienna from a different angle than any of its competitors. You won’t want to miss it.
