When viennese residents speak of a walk in the second district area, they would probably choose the Prater parkway – one of Vienna’s green lungs. Now that is beautiful and peaceful at the same time, but the 2nd district has an attraction not to miss: the Vienna University of Economics and Business completed in 2013. The new WU Campus is the epitome of a modern university campus and more than just a place for teaching and learning. It is designed to create a new space for social, cultural and political life.
Visitors and area residents are more than welcome at the WU Campus, which offers not only food for thought, but also restaurants, cafés and shops, all in a stimulating architectural environment.

Six architect groups sign responsible for this new modern place in Vienna. My favorite is the centrally located Library & Learning Center, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. If you wish to learn more about the architecture on the Campus there are two Tours offered by atours-vienna
- Outdoor Areas and Forum 1,5 – 2 hours
- of the Buildings (with break): 3.5–4 hours
And then there is a fine new restaurant: Das Campus
Juicy burgers (some call them the best burgers in town already), crispy thin tartes and several austrian and some mediterranean dishes. Everything is freshly prepared and still very fairly priced. The weekly new two course lunch is offered for 6,90 from monday to friday.
MO-SA 09AM – 12PM, Sunday 09AM – 10PM and breakfast until 6PM! Isn’t that great for people, who love extended breakfast hours?
U2 station: Krieau. 3 minutes walk along the Trabrennstraße
My outfit of the day fitted in perfectly to the earthy shades of the welcoming interior, which truly is not only comfortable, but very well chosen. Only one wish: When do they open a merchandise-shop with the printed pillows and waiters T-Shirts? I’d love to buy both!
