Hi there, Our flat is located in the 9th district (Alsergrund) on the 6th floor (we have a lift) in an historic building built in 1950. The neighbourhood...
Where is it?
The flat is in a quiet neighbourhood in the 22nd district of Vienna. It offers the possibility of relaxing after a day of sightseeing in a more rural area of the city while being very well connected to the city's attractions by public transportation. The bus stop is right outside the building; nevertheless you won´t be bothered by the bus/car noises as the block is perpendicular to the street where the bus passes and our flat is at the other end.
The public transportation is very well functioning in Vienna; there is very little walking in between bus stops and metro or train station and there are more ways of reaching the attractions in the city, all by comfortable public transportation.
Nearby there is a public lake (Hirschstetten see) and a park with domestic animals and plants (Blumengärten hirschstetten)where kids can have fun watching the animals or playing in the kids playground. Here there is a Viennese "heuriger" (local type of restaurant) where you try out local foods and drinks. Nearby there is also a big outdoor playground for kids and adults (Motorikpark) and an indoor one in case of bad weather (Family fun). All of these are reachable by public transport within 15-30 minutes.
Distances to some of the city´s attractions :
-) To the city centre/Stephansplatz: 45 minutes
-) To Vienna international center (VIC) : 35 minutes
-) To Praterstern: 40 minutes
-) To the Schönbrunn palace: 1 hour
-) To the main train station (Wien Hbf) : 45 minutes
-) To the Belvedere Castle: 50 minutes (5 walking minutes from the main train station)
The nearest shopping area is Gewerbepark Stadlau which is 15 minutes away by car and 20 minutes by bus. There are shops for every needs: groceries, clothing, furniture, children fashion and toys, etc. There is a Penny and a Billa supermarket a few bus stops closer than Gewerbepark Stadlau shopping area.
There is a local farmer’s shop 3 KM away which is not reachable by public transportation. Here you can find season fruits and veggies from the nearby farms, homemade bread as well as locally produced oil, honey, etc.
