Where is it?
Our apartment is in the lively and lovely Servitenviertel in the 9th district. It is named after the baroque church and cloister of the order of the Servites. Only 200 meters off our house is the famous Palace Liechtenstein, which is now a museum and has a big park and children´s playground open to the public. Within 5 minutes walk there is the Sigmund Freud museum. Only 100 meters off our house there is a tennis court in a romantic, green backyard with a pavilion which was erected by emperor Charles of Austria in 1856.
Nowadays the whole area has a nice touch of French culture, because the French high school (Lycee) and the French cultural institute are located within walking distance. In our neighbourhood you find French food shops, organic food, grocery shops, wonderful restaurants, bars and theatres, cinemas, gyms, supermarkets, a dry cleaner, a taxi hub. 400 meters away there is one of the trendy summer hotspots of Vienna alongside the canal, with food stalls, bars, music venues, artificial beaches, walking slopes (you can walk and jog and cycle a 50 kilometre distance if you want). It´s similar to the high-line in NYC.
50 meters off our house is a stop of the tramway-line D, which goes either to the green hills of the famous village Grinzing, where you can sit in the gardens and taste the new wine (Heurigen) or you can go the other direction - three stops will bring you to the Ringstraße with the main theater (Burgtheater), state opera (Staatsoper), University, graphic collection (Albertina), the big museums (Kunstistorisches Museum, Naturhistorisches Museum), townhall, parliament and so on. Public transport and taxis are very easy and safe day and night. Within 5 minutes walk you have a subway station (# 4 train), where you can reach all other lines, the central market and the royal Palace Schönbrunn. By train you can easily reach Prague or Budapest or Venice.
