Looking for a cosy and dynamic atmosphere? Then definitely head to the student-populated, stately Alsergrund.
Say bustling cosiness, you say Alsergrund. This is Vienna's university district. Not only is the magnificent main Uni building located here, but also the lively campus. The many students give the stately district a very cosy and dynamic atmosphere. In the centre of the district, surrounded by a beautiful garden, is the baroque Palais Liechtenstein, with works by Flemish and Dutch Old Masters, among others. The surrounding buildings and streets have an elegant allure. At the edge of Alsergrund is the Danube Canal, which runs right through the city. In summer, the area is buzzing with cafés, beach bars and terraces.
