The gorgeous kitchen is around the corner, where you have everything you need to cook that special meal.

In the area around the apartment you will find a range of supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants that will provide you with everything you might need.

Minutes away is Prater-Hauptallee – the biggest river park where you can stop and take a deep breath of Vienna’s freshness.

Surroundings

The artfully designed Hundertwasser House, the Vienna Prater with its Giant Ferris-Wheel, the traditional Carmelite market, public transport, small shops, cozy coffee houses and restaurants are nearby. Due to the special closeness to the historic city center (within walking distance) and its location nearby one of the most beautiful green areas of the city, the Viennese Prater meadows, this apartment is the ideal starting point to discover the cultural heritage of Vienna or to relax in nature. The nearest tramway station (Wittelsbachstraße‎) is only 100 meters away - using tramway line 1 you get to the city centre in just 7-8 minutes. From the same station you can get bus number 4A and in 10 minutes you will be in front of famous church Karlskirche, not far away from the State Opera.

District Leopoldstadt

LeopoldstadtLeopoldstadt ("Leopold-Town") is the 2nd municipal District of Vienna (German: 2. Bezirk). The second district is situated on an island between the Danube and the the Donaukanal canal and it is very well-connected to the first district. In terms of sightseeing, the opportunities are unlimited. In Vienna, you have an opportunity to live on an island and still be in a very central area of the city.

The Augarten is one of Vienna′s finest Baroque parks. You can′t avoid noticing the two massive concrete Flak towers in the Augarten: They were built to defend Vienna against air-raids during WWII. There are two more of these couples behind the Museumsquartier in the sixth and seventh district (one of them houses the "Haus des Meeres" aquarium).

For proper sightseeing, move southwards. That way you will get to the Carmelite Church (Karmeliterkirche), a pretty and recently refurbished baroque church supplemented by a market. The "Karmelitermarkt" is at the centre of the former Jewish quarter. Nearby is the Produktenbörse (Corn Exchange) and the Kirche St. Leopold.

Moving even further south, you will get into other famous area of the second district: The Prater. Contrary to popular (even Austrian) believe, the Prater is much more than a carnival fair / Luna park type of place. This area is in fact called "Volksprater" or "Wurstelprater" and occupies only a small fraction of the Prater area. It originally consisted of Habsburg hunting grounds and was later (in the 18th century under the rule of the reformist Emperor Joseph II) opened to the general public for the sake of recreation. A good starting point is the Praterstern and Venediger Au.

The most famous attraction of the Prater is the Ferris wheel, the "Wiener Riesenrad", spinning since 1897. It will provide you with excellent vistas on the second district and other parts of Vienna. In the district is also the "Messe Wien", the convention centre. It is situated nearby the Würstelprater.
