The ice-cream here is fantastic! They have daily flavours that you need to go and check out because they really do change each day and sometimes you won't ever see that flavour again. There are two ways of eating here, you can sit down and order from the menu (if you need to use the rest room just ask the... More

We had superb sundae at this 'eissalon' on the terrace. Its absurd they let guests smoke there. OK service, good flavors, cash only.

Must visit for a fantastic selection of ice cream desserts! We had a Lampone and a La via Rose. Easily one of the best ice cream desserts I have ever had. Large menu selection, fast and friendly service (a cool night with low foot traffic), and lots of seating. Must go - we will return!

My friend and I were eating dinner at Schwedenplatz when we saw EVERYONE walking by with huge ice cream cones! We followed the trail up the hill to Eissalon am Schwedenplatz. Just a short line and very helpful employees spoke English and helped us make good choices. EXCELLENT, creamy gelato. Then WE joined the line wandering down to the river... More

the ice is nice, but the service slow and arrogant, indeed the location is perfect, but still customers have always right

Amazing to see folks sitting outside eating ice cream when the temperature was in the low 50s, but I guess in Vienna, that's the way it's done. We loved this place (just half a block from our hotel, so very convenient (unfortunately, because we were trying to be careful with our calories - and NOT here). But the ice cream... More

My partner (who is from Vienna) continuously spoke of this place and how we MUST go... and I'm glad, because it was awesome. The ice cream, truly was the best I've ever had. There's so many varieties of flavours (fresh!), combinations, toppings, extras that you could possibly think of. I've added the photos from our first visit, when we went... More

Over the last couple of years the quality and taste of their ice cream decreased massively. By now they've reached a level that is below average with very e pensive prices. With about 2 minutes of walking one can reach more than 3 other ice cream places that are better than this one. Especially the staff is very unfriendly here... More

A few new flavours depending on the weekday, vegan ice-cream and interesting mixes with fruit, whipped cream and liqueurs served in the middle of all the action on Schwedenplatz.

This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
