This is a great area to just people watch, walk, shop and eat. There is all that you could want here and it’s easy to wander around for hours.

Many things to do, packed with shops, food and attractions. Shopping is not that good as many say. Mariahilfer street is much much better. Don’t miss Aida konditor.
