Main Station Vienna

In Vienna, Neighborhood Stories, Short City Walk

Hauptbahnhof Wien, Mainstation

One of the most amazing things in Vienna is the culture of architecture you are surrounded by when exploring the city. Buildings, hundreds of years old, in between green Parks. And then there are areas, which had their moments, but everyone is happy, when they are gone, like the 140 years old South Rail Station. I remember very well that this was a place where I don’t have one happy memory, when in the need of even crossing the place except the old lion sculpture. Maybe I wasn’t the only one, who felt that way, because this is literally the only old stone you will find at the new Central Station of Vienna.

Neighborhood Stories

WIEN MITTE The Mall | SHOP. EAT. DRINK.

The area around the station Landstrasse – Wien Mitte has been an unfriendly dark place for a long time, which was replaced by years of construction sites.  I couldn’t imagine that this would change any time soon. But what a surprising sight that was, when I visited the place last week. A specious Mall in ultra modern architecture invites to stay a bit longer than the few minutes to walk through, from one subway to another.

Well done! And so badly need for Vienna Tourists as WIEN MITTE is an important central transport hub with 10 public transport lines intersect here. Not to forget the CAT (City Airport Train) which goes directly to and from the Airport in no time. Now passengers can have a casual drink or quick meal in one of the lovely places.

One highlight for sure is the world’s biggest Vapiano right on the corner of The Mall Wien Mitte.

Carefully designed by architect and Interior Designer Matteo Thun with the central role: the old Olivetree, which makes you feel like having a short holiday during your lunch break.

The opening hours allow to shop casually without any rush after work at the new shopping center in the middle of Vienna:

Monday to Wednesday: 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Thursday to Friday: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

And the Restaurants score with generous opening hours 7 days a week:

Monday to Wednesday: 9a.m. – 11p.m.
Thursday to Saturday: 9a.m. – 12p.m.
Sunday: 9a.m. – 10p.m.

I think I will use that as an additional excuse in the future to stop for a break, when having to change from the U3 to the U4 or going to the airport.

GO for a Winter Walk

My Lifestyle

A winter-walk at the Pond in Vienna

It seems that Vienna won’t get much snow this winter.

It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon and time for a walk.

Blessed to live a bit outside of the city, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy the green lunges of Vienna’s suburbia. And look what I found: The first signs of Snow roses (Christmas Rose).
