The beautiful luxury apartment Oval Residence is located in the 8th district of Vienna - Josefstadt, one of the oldest and most prestigious districts in the heart of Vienna. Due to the special closeness to the historic city center, this apartment is the ideal starting point to discover the cultural heritage of Vienna.The magnificent Vienna City Hall (Rathaus) with its famous square, site of many events, the Austrian Parliament, the Burgtheater, the People's Garden (Volksgarten), the University of Vienna, the Art - and Natural History museums and many other attractions can be reached in a few minutes. Numerous small shops and cozy cafes and restaurants are nearby. The nearest tram station (Albertstrasse) is just around the corner (100 meters) - tram line number 2 gets you to the city center in just 3 minutes. The nearest metro station (Josefstädterstrasse) is within walking distance.
Josefstadt is the eighth district of Vienna (German: 8. Bezirk, Josefstadt). Adjacent to the grand museums of the Ringstrasse, Josefstadt – named after Emperor Joseph II, is stuffed with traditional churches and townhouses, secluded parks and private gardens. Coffeehouses and cafes abound, all buzzing with a varied clientele of public servants and uni students.
The Josefstadt, Vienna′s Eighth District, is the smallest in terms of size - and with a population of a mere 23,000, it is the second-smallest in terms of population after the First District.
Josefstadt is very centrally located, yet at the same kind off the busy area of Vienna - within a few blocks, you can leave the pomposity of the Ringstraße and the First District and dive into an almost remote area with "real" life. The charming side of the Josefstadt is revealed through the many small cafes, bars, galleries and independent shops.
Palais Schönborn: Classic Sightseeing in the Josefstadt
Due to the relatively late development of the Josefstadt, there are few palaces - the most significant one being the Palais Schönbrunn. The Palais is now property of the City of Vienna and serves - among other things - as a museum. Here you find the "Österreichische Volkskundemuseum", a museum of folk culture. Other palaces in the Eight district are the more centrally located Palais Auersperg and the Palais Trautson, both very big and impressive palaces.
One of the main attractions is the Piaristenkirche Church, with its characteristic twin-tower. This late-Baroque church is one of the most significant pieces of work by Lukas von Hildebrandt. Another church worth noting is the Baroque Dreifaltigkeitskirche - certainly more appealing than the bizarre Mechitaristenkirche. Within Austria, the Josefstadt has a reputation for being a theatre district. On the one hand, you have many backyard stages and small theatres, including the "La Petite" with only 19 seats. There are several Cabaret stages, including the legendary "Cabaret Niedermayer". On the other hand, the "Theater in der Josefstadt" is a big player in Austria′s theatre scene.
