Flowers are, of course, the undisputed top of the list of the most popular presents on Mother’s Day, followed closely by chocolate and sweets. A particularly unforgettable idea are personalised sweets, which you can order in the Zuckerlwerkstatt (literally, the sweet workshop) in Vienna. You can choose your own individual motif, form and lettering, making this a perfect gift to convey a personal message to your mother.

However, for those who prefer to show their gratitude to their mother in words, the Papeterie Herzilein is the perfect place to go. Here you will discover a wide range of greeting cards with handwritten messages as well as other pretty gift ideas. There are three branches in the city and one is located centrally on the Wollzeile.

In this street in Vienna’s first district, there are many further shopping possibilities – away from the hustle and bustle of Kärntner Straße. In addition to the two large bookstores, Morawa and Herder, there are also many small shops with lots of great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts.

Every mother is happy to receive gifts but there is one thing that mothers appreciate the most: spending time together with their loved ones.

Our tip: Give your mother a holiday with you in Vienna as a present. In our CheckVIENNA apartments, you are totally independent and completely free to plan your own individual holiday, taking account of your own wishes and your mother’s preferences.

Regardless of whether a day trip to Schönbrunn Zoo or a shopping marathon – with our apartments, you can select the best location for your trip. And if, in addition to sightseeing, you would like to give your mother the chance to relax, we recommend a gift voucher from Therme Wien, a spa resort, which is located in the city’s tenth district.

The family apartment with separately accessible rooms is ideal for a shopping trip to Vienna. But also these spacious rooms – a mere 4-minute walk from the U3 station – are also the perfect starting point for a sightseeing tour of Vienna.

A concert in honour of mothers will be held in the Wiener Metropol. On 12th May, INSIEME invites you to an Italian evening under the motto “Viva la Mamma”. A particular highlight are the music requests of the audience – from the many songs, you can choose the hits that you would like to be played.

In contrast, somewhat quieter, but definitely not boring, is an event in the Jewish Museum in Vienna. Mothers can not only expect a free coffee to every order in Café Eskeles, but also the entry to as well as a tour of the Museum is provided free of charge! The guided tour will take you through the permanent exhibition, “Our city! Jewish Vienna until today”, with a particular emphasis on well known, not so well known, famous and special women who have become a part of both past and contemporary Vienna.

It is not only on Mother’s Day that mothers should be taken out for a meal. Why not take advantage of the wide range of possibilities to have breakfast in Vienna as a particularly good and relaxing way to start this special day? You will find all you need to know in our blog.

But if you want your mother to enjoy a long lie on Mother’s Day, you can still visit the Genuss-Festival (described as a “culinary journey through the whole of Austria”) in Vienna‘s Stadtpark (City Park) or take her for a Mother’s Day brunch in the Lusthaus in the Prater, the large public park in the city’s second district. This classic is appreciated by both mothers as well as fathers. We recommend you book early.
