1.Bezirk / 1st district, Vienna: 25 reviews and 48 photos
Wander around the maze of streets of Vienna's central First District (Erste Bezirk), I have lived here for nearly 8 years but I am still discovering new things - In Sterngasse near Schwedednplatz, I found this cannonball (see picture) which had been fired many centuries before. Walk through any passage way and you will find yourself in all sorts of interesting places. In Blutgasse look into the courtyards and you will see typical old Viennese pawlatsche balconies running round the houses. They are often covered in the most beautiful flowers in the summertime. At the end of this street you will see Mozart's apartment if the courtyard is open you can take a quick look inside. Wander round the tiny streets off of Judenplatz and discover the Watch Museum and some great hidden bars and restaurants some even without names.Walk along the site of the old city walls near Schwedenplatz, go to the Fleischmarkt to look at the Griechenbeisl and have a peek at Lieber Augustin who is set in the floor in the entrance to the restaurant. Go to Kleeblattgasse where there is a great bar Kolar which serves beer and warm breads with different toppings. Near Rotenturmstrasse wander down Sonnenfelsgasse or Backerstrasse where you come out at a beautiful church. Just put the map into your pocket and see where you end up after all the Centre of Vienna is too small to get too lost! Enjoy!
