Strandbar Herrmann – Vienna’s Best Beach?

By |February 13th, 2013|

Strandbar Herrmann, is this Vienna’s best beach?  Hidden amongst the high rise office and apartment blocks, retro deckchairs nestle in the golden sand.  Tourist and locals alike, settle down into said deckchairs and take in the sun, beer in hand, not a care in the world.  Ah, urban beach bliss!
