September 17, 2020
Vienna, the capital city of Austria, is a shining monument to the past mixed with the innovations of the present. Its beautiful splendor speaks of its colorful history and tumultuous past. While its open and liberated society is a testament to how far the nation has gone through time. It's no wonder that many people visit the city each year, with a lot of them even settling down and making it their new hometown. With that said, Vienna is a collection of different neighborhoods, each more fascinating than the next. The more you know about each and every one of them, the better you'll enjoy your stay here.

Alsergrund

For those scholars looking to study in Vienna, you'll likely want to stay at Alsergrund, the ninth district of the city. It's commonly referred to as the "Academic Quarter" in which you can find important hospitals, informative museums, and even a prominent university. It's where the University of Vienna, the most respected educational institution in the city, is located, after all. Not to mention the Freud Museum that exhibits everything you need to know about the historic psychologist.

Innere Stadt

The first district of Vienna, Innere Stadt, is perhaps the most popular of them all in the Austrian capital. It used to be the seat of power when the country was under the rule of the Habsburg Empire. But now, the classic Viennese architecture now simply serves as a reminder of the city's glorious but tumultuous past. Rather than contemporary establishments, you'll see more of museums or former political offices. Two must-see sites include the Vienna Opera House and the famous Hofburg palace

Josefstadt

When you're relocated to a capital city, you'll likely prefer a more quiet neighborhood to move to, right? In that case, the eighth district of Vienna, Josefstadt, should be your new home. Named after the Habsburg Emperor Joseph II, it used to be the residential neighborhood of Austria's past leaders. Nowadays, however, instead of high-brow politics, it's now a peaceful corner full of Viennese cafes, solemn churches, and quaint parks that are perfect for families. You won't find a more serene place in the city than this.

Landstrasse

At times, you'd just want to live amidst opulence. What good is moving to a city like Vienna if you can't see its most stunning buildings and structures every day? If you have a thing for beautiful architecture, taking a walk around the city's most imperial sites would lighten up your mood every day, no matter how hard it was. That's why the right district for you in this situation is the third one, Landstrasse. The Schwarzenberg Palace, Belvedere Palace, and the Konzerthaus concert house are just some of the places that stand here.

Leopoldstadt

Located on the Eastern side of the Dabuce Canal, Vienna's second district, Leopoldstadt, is undoubtedly one of its liveliest. It's one where the hustle and bustle are alive and well, with plenty of big and small businesses setting up shop here. And it's easy to get to via public transport, which is always a plus. Its major highlight is definitely Prater Park, the center of fun and excitement for the community here. What with acres of open land and even an amusement park, who wouldn't have fun here?

Margareten

It's easy to think that living in a major capital city like Vienna means you have to forego a peaceful and quiet life but that's not entirely true.  If you move to the city's fifth district, Margareten, you can still enjoy the suburban-like lifestyle that you want, especially when you have kids. This neighborhood is largely residential that's, while still beautiful, doesn't have a lot of tourist spots to boast about. And that's a good thing, as the environment remains serene and harmonious here.

Mariahilf

Mariahilf, Vienna's sixth district, on the other hand, is virtually the polar opposite of Margareten. It's one of the busiest parts of the city as its the central shopping area for everything. The famous Naschmarkt and Flohmarkt markets draw crowds of locals and tourists alike, looking to buy all sorts of food and goodies at low prices. Surrounding them are loads of charging cafes and pubs to keep people's stomachs full and happy after a day of shopping.

Neubau

It's safe to say that Neubau, the city's seventh district, is the most artistic out of all of them. It is, after all, where the famous Gustav Klimt once lived. But now, it's become the type of hipster central where artists, writers, and all sorts of idealists convene in coffee shops, either talking amongst themselves or working hard for their next outputs. There's also a lot of museums and art galleries to visit here, showcasing both classic works and modern pieces.

Wieden

Vienna's fourth district, Weiden, is relatively small but that doesn't mean it's not a good neighborhood to go to. Students studying at Vienna's Technical University live here, so you know the youthful spin injects a certain liveliness in the air. And since it's close to the city center, it's as bustling a district as any of the other. There's a balance of peace and hustle here, making it a perfect urban neighborhood for those who really want to live out a city lifestyle.
