Karmeliterviertel is an up-and-coming neighbourhood where you can eat and drink well and from where you can dive straight into a nice park.
For conviviality and good food, head to Karmeliterviertel, popular with hip Viennese. The district lies on the Danube canal and takes its name from the church on the square. The district is home to many Orthodox Jews. The Karmelitermarkt is a hotspot. Between the stalls are many eateries and around the market you will find cute little shops. The market is liveliest on Saturday mornings, when local farmers sell their cheeses, wine and honey. Around the corner is the Augarten, a vast park notable for its giant anti-aircraft towers. The Prater, a park famous for its Ferris wheel, is also a great place to hang out.
