We live in a quiet flat in Vienna's 'Pratercottage' (second district), right next to the green areas of the Wiener Prater and within 20 minutes walking...
Where is it?
Hietzingâs location is perfect: close to the city center (17 metrominutes to St. Stephanâs Cathedral) and in the midst of green.
And it still has the flair of the little village Emperor Franz-Josef chose for his summer residence: the village center with its small shops, restaurants, Heurigen (wine-bars) and one of the famouse traditional cafe houses: Cafe Dommayer, next to it the Castle SchÃ¶nbrunn and the Zoo. Our Apartment is in walking distance to all this.
The next wooden are is only 3 min walking or jogging away. Meadows where you have a gorgeous view over Vienna are 10min walking/jogging away.
Our neighborhood is very safe - also at night and interesting just to walk around: the houses here are stunning; Alfred Loos, one of Vienna's famous architects has build houses in Hietzing and one sits right next to ours.
Although for Vienna itself you wonât need a car it is convenient to have one to explore the surrounding: the Wachau (one of the Vine areas), Neusiedler Lake, Semmering (for hiking) just to name a few.
And since Vienna is the heart of Europe :) you can visit other countries also: Bratislava (Slovenia) is only 1hour train ride away from Vienna, Budapest (Hungary) 3hours, Praha (Czech Republic) 4hours. (Those cities are more convient and safer to travel to by train). We live in Vienna since 2000 and we just love the city.
