I am looking to move to Vienna and hoping some expats (or natives) could help me with districts and what they have to offer.
Im Australian and have been living with my Austrian partner in Lower Austria for 1year. We are moving to Vienna as he will be starting uni in September and i need to save my sanity. He is as clueless as me when it comes to suitable districts.
The past 8years I have lived in Glasgow and I miss the great pubs, clubs, restaurants and live music it has to offer (let alone the shopping). I am hoping to find a district that has all this and more.... and hoping you expats out there can help an me out
p.s we are late 20's early 30's.... just in case you were wondering.
Your suggestions are most welcome and I thank you in advance!!
The 7th is great because you can be by both the MQ and Mariahilferstrasse. I guess you can say the same thing about the 6th! The 7th is a bit pricey though, its known as a district for young professionals. Not sure what kind of budget you have if your husband is in school.
We are finding it really difficult to find a flat online. Can anyone point me in the right direction to a few good realtor sites? Its taking serious man hours to trawel through these sites, with no joy!!
Edit: scrap the above, unless you can recommend any personal websites. I found the sticky in this forum with a list of sites to check.
The price range we are looking at is between 600-800 pm. Its not absolutely necessary to live next to the uni, as i work from home a big bright sunny flat, in a great area is more important to us. Although of course we dont want to be too far away from the uni.
Thank you in advance for your help, greatly appreciated :)
From my experience, it is best to locate yourself next to transportation stop on the line you will be most using. For example the subway U2, or trams 40, 41, 43, 44 but I would still recommend the Alser Straße area. If you want a sunny flat that will only depend on which floor you're on and the relation of the adjacent building towards the direction you face. If you want big you should find "altbau" as opposed to "neubau" since they generally have taller ceilings and windows.
