2 hip. A walk through the new Leopoldstadt.
Vienna’s Second District is changing fast. The Green Party leads the local government, and many new bars and restaurants have moved in. But rents remain lower than in other parts of central Wien, and the neighbourhood has a lively mix of people. Ultra-Orthodox Jews live alongside students from the new WU campus, and hipsters with the original working-class inhabitants. The Donaukanal street art scene is a catwalk for the whole city, and mostly has no pressure to consume – you can bring your own drinks.
The magdas Hotel, Supersense and the Sofitel represent interesting innovative approaches to business in the district, and Cafe Ansari is a new-school Vienna coffeehouse, with a Goergian twist.
In German. Free.
