Good location for walking around but the ice cream is just average. Too sweet for my taste. Also there is no seating available.

Here you can get one of the best ice creams in Vienna, and about 50% are vegan. Also the milk of the non-vegan treats come from their own farmer. Its just a friendly place with very friendly service and fantastic quality.

It is true that there are hundreds of good places to get ice cream in Vienna- but this one is my favorite for using biological products and not as much sugar as the others. You can really taste the ingredients and if you are brave enough there are some interesting flavors like Austrian roasted pumpkin seeds lightly salted or goat... More

I come from a city in Italy where ice cream is done very well, so I feel really confident in saying that gelato from Eis Greissler in Vienna is AMAZING!!!! For abroad standard, and for any standard really!!! Gelato here is creamy and not icy. However, it is the taste the major player. Eating fruit ice cream is like eating... More

Trust me. I've eaten a lot of gelato and ice cream all over the world in my 75 years and this organic producer's product is simply the best.

This is definitely the best gelato in Vienna, even better than La Romana (and they have great gelato too). Forget all the "gelaterias" directly around Stephanplatz and try all the magnificent flavours here. The scoops are 1,50Euro, but definitely worth it. Right taste, right texture, right sweetness. Just fantastic gelato.

We stopped for a mid afternoon snack on our way back from the museum quarter. The friendly girl behind the counter offered to run through the flavours in English for me, which was so nice. They have some vegan flavours, and they currently sweeten with beet sugar. It was €1.50 for a small cup.

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
