Vienna is famous for its coffeehouses. People like to meet for a cup of coffee. Hotel Sacher stays close to the opera house. There you can also have a cup of coffee and eat a piece of the famous Sacher Torte.

A cool place to hang out in the sun is the MQ (Museumsquartier). There you can find a great museum and some restaurants, coffeehouses and bars. And it's huge yard is really awesome! Sometimes open air concerts or clubbings take place here. By the way, the entrance is free. The MQ is famous for it's big "couches" built of concrete. People love to sit on them to meet friends, read a book, listen to music or for flirting. ;)

Besides the MQ stays very close to the Mariahilfer Straße, which is the biggest shopping street in Vienna. There you can also find a lot of coffeehouses, restaurants and so on, where you can sit outside in their "Schanigarten" (a little "garden" in front of the coffeehouse) to enjoy the sunshine and watch people walking by.
