Live with historical flair in Vienna’s Innere Stadt

The Innere Stadt in Vienna is congruent with the historic town center. The Austrian capital’s historical significance can best be felt here. The Hofburg, Stephansdom and Parliament are impressive testimonies of imperial Vienna. Even today, the Innere Stadt is the political, economic and social heart of the city. The Kärntnerstraße, next to Mariahilfer Straße, is a popular shopping street. In addition to shop and office space, you will find completely renovated exclusive properties in Vienna’s first district. New buildings are rarely seen in the Inner City. Particularly attractive are the residential buildings in smaller streets, which have orrespondingly high rental rates. Innere Stadt is the most expensive residential area of Vienna, however, one lives in close proximity to the most beautiful and majestic sights.

Vienna’s district Wieden

Wieden is considered the oldest suburb of Vienna. Also called the 4th district, Vienna Wieden is one of the creative centers in Vienna. Many smaller shops, such as small designer boutiques and studios, have sprung up for years. The picture is rounded off by many small restaurants, bars and cafes scattered throughout the district. This rich offer ensures a high quality of life and makes apartments in Vienna’s 4th district extremely popular. Vienna Wieden also has a lot to offer. The Naschmarkt attracts countless visitors every day. It offers a variety of different fresh products from all over the world and the gastronomic establishments on the market themselves serve their customers with international cuisine. An apartment in the 4th district in Vienna is usually in classic-style buildings. These have been renovated in recent years and are therefore well maintained. Many streets in Vienna Wieden are crossed by imposing blocks of flats from the Wilhelminian era. Nevertheless, rent for apartments in Vienna’s fourth district is considered to be affordable and you are not far from the city centre.

Residential area Mariahilf

Mariahilf is the most densely populated district of Vienna. Young families, in particular, appreciate the quiet residential atmosphere in Vienna’s 6th district. As in other districts, there is a strong presence of old buildings in Mariahilf. Entire streets, such as the Wienzeile are lined with apartment buildings in Art Nouveau style. The Art Nouveau buildings have been largely modernised repeatedly over the last few years. The apartments in Vienna’s 6th district are thus extremely well maintained old buildings. Mariahilf’s residential buildings have a special feature , namely passageways, which usually lead you into beautiful courtyards and gardens. The Raimundhof and the Beethoven House are good examples of this. An apartment in such a building is in great demand. The Viennese shopping mile Mariahilferstrasse also contributes to the popularity of the 6th district. Despite these advantages and the proximity to the city centre, rents have remained affordable. With our service, you will find a selection of attractively furnished apartments in the 6th district in Vienna at great rental prices.

Vienna’s district Josefstadt

Josefstadt is undoubtedly one of the most popular residential areas in Vienna. Even if the 8th district is geographically the smallest district of Vienna, it offers its residents and visitors unique cultural offerings with many big stages, small theatres, and cabarets. Josefstadt attracts a lot of students, which is due to its vibrant nightlife, and young families. But typical Viennese traditions, such as a visit to one of the many classical coffee houses, are maintained here too. The architecture fits into this picture. The streets of Josefstadt are characterised by Art Nouveau and Baroque influenced architecture and spacious buildings. Due to the high popularity, apartments in Josefstadt are hard to come by and very high-priced, especially due to its immediate proximity to the city centre. But those who have lived in the Josefstadt in Vienna, do not want to leave.

Living in Vienna Leopoldstadt

The district of Leopoldstadt in Vienna could hardly be more multifaceted. On the one hand, the 2nd district is multicultural and student oriented. On the other, the district is very popular with companies. This diversity is also reflected in the offer and prices of apartments in Vienna’s 2nd district. Particularly the old buildings and the apartments located within are popular because of their affordable rental rates for students. However, if you are looking for a modern apartment in Vienna’s second district, look for it in the area around the Danube Canal.

The Augarten also offers a popular recreational area within the Leopoldstadt. With our service, you will find a selection of high quality furnished apartments in Vienna’s 2nd district.

The neighbourhood Vienna Ottakring

For those who appreciate living in a multicultural atmosphere, the Ottakring district is the right place. This trendy Viennese district has been very active the last few years.
