Yes, you can eat great burger in Vienna and yes, we don’t think that McDonald’s is the place to go. As a matter of fact one of the best places in Vienna to grab a great burger is Smokey’s ( There are two restaurants: one is right in the city centre and the other one is pretty close to the centre opposite the Donaukanal.

They definitely use some of the freshest groundbeef for their burger in Vienna so you can take the medium which I certainly can recommend. The taste is awesome. If you come for lunch there is a lunch special every day. Today they had a Ginger Chicken Burger with their homemade fries and a salad as a starter. It was yummy although I am not a particular fan of sauces like BBQ sauce the taste of that sauce was great.

So if you can choose where to go for a great burger in Vienna Smokey’s is certainly the place to go plus: don’t forget their home icetea and lemonade.

Address: Obere Donaustrasse 97-99, 1020 Vienna,

They were definitly rocking the stage … all the young music talents from Teenage Rockstar ( at Local Bar ( in Vienna. The youngest was just 8 years old but was already getting the party started with his performance of “Monsta Party”!

In the end, Papermoon ( was performing with some of the young music talents! What a great highlight for this amazing afternoon!

… not that I would forget … but find it extremely super exciting … there is going to be beer week @Arena ( a super fun party and concert location in Vienna. 

And of course! Being a fan of both - partys and beer - I will have to check that one out - so be there too! It is free of charge (of course, it would be great if you would give a small donation)

But the most important part about these exciting news is that the concert takes place on Rathaus Platz and is completely free of charge. 

Charles Bradley is certainly the newcomer in the Jazz scene. His career started only at the age of 63. He is 64 now and was a cook at a psychatric hospital in California before.

His music is absolutely great and his voice stunning. Just listen to it! The video below shows one of his hits “The World”. Go watch the concert tonight at 6:00 p.m. at Rathaus Platz!

… are no contradiction. The Austrian National team is not that bad actually. But that is not the main message here. In fact, Austria is hosting the American Football World Championships ( starting today in Innsbruck with the US competing against Australia. Eight teams are competing in total.

There is going to be lots of Public Viewing and a Party Zone …. it is at the Krieau at the Trabrennen ( Come for Parties and Public Viewing and Drinks the perfect place.

But for all those in Vienna - there are still tickets available for the Finals next Sunday at Ernst-Happel-Stadion. The prices start at 25 Euros and you can watch two matches. Being an American Football fan for more than 20 years I do need to get my tickets … if you want to join me, let me know!
