My name is Eric. I just accepted an offer from the IAEA and my wife Kimmi and I will be moving to Vienna on July 6th.
I lived in Spain for 2 years, so I am familiar with Europe, but I’ve never been to Austria and speak no German.
We are looking at apartments online, and I was wondering if anyone could give some suggestions on what district to live in.
Kimmi and I are in our mid 20’s, are very active, and we won’t have a car in Vienna. We have been looking at apartments in Districts 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 18, and 19.
I’ll be working at the VIC, so we would like to live somewhere with good access to it.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

Hi Eric take a look at our District to district section lot of good feedback.
Without children all of Vienna is open to you. if you like to go out at night the inner districts are great because there is more happening. The outer districts are great if you enjoy the green and outdoors, but they roll up their sidewalks early.
Wherever you choose. Enjoy your stay!June 23, 2012 at 5:58 pm #2041blueorangeMember
it may be not the district, but the quality of the apartment that must be a deciding factor… In Vienna it’s hard to find a perfect quality.So don’t narrow your choice down to districts…June 24, 2012 at 12:09 am #2042SilviaMember

The IAEA has a list of apartments from people who rent to Expats at the UN, And I have seen a number of them and they were beautiful and fitted for Expats want and needs with, built in kitchens, beautiful bathrooms and even the altbau were modernized. But the rent started at 1,500 for most and I know it is going up higher, since property values there are also.
The joke was most Americans want a traditional old building with a modern apartment on top… Actually was often true.July 24, 2012 at 4:44 pm #2087moutayeMember
The 7th would be a fit. I’m there with my gf and we are loving it (i’m 31 and she is 29)
Very central and very convenient if you don’t have a car (Westbahnof just around, U3, U6, all sorts of tram etc…).
It’s a bit eco-bobo but that makes it funny in a way 🙂
It’s great for bars, restaurants, night life etc, particularly the Siebenstern area.
PM if you want to know more.
