Favorite thing: The Innere Stadt is the first Viennese Municipality District. The Innere Stadt is the old town of Vienna. Until the city boundaries were expanded in 1850, the Innere Stadt was congruent with the city of Vienna. Traditionally it was divided into four quarters, which were designated after important town gates: Stubenviertel (northeast), Kärntner Viertel (southeast), Widmerviertel (southwest), Schottenviertel (northwest).

Fondest memory: The Ringstraße circles the Innere Stadt along the route of the former city walls.

Address: The old part of Vienna inside the Ringstrasse

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
