District Guide: Neubau, Vienna

seen by Anna Laura Kummer, blogger

Even though trav­el­ing to oth­er coun­tries makes her feel alive, Anna-Lau­ra finds the return to Vien­na always makes her feel at ease, the way only a city that feels like home can. Grow­ing up in a small town close to Austria’s cap­i­tal, she start­ed young, pro­duc­ing videos for her YouTube chan­nel, a pas­sion that turned out to be her future pro­fes­sion along with her blog, for which she won the Aus­tri­an Blog­ger Award in 2015. Anna-Lau­ra is not your reg­u­lar blog­ger how­ev­er: with top­ics rang­ing from her veg­an­ism and trav­el, to lifestyle and sus­tain­abil­i­ty, she’s cre­at­ed a reflec­tive cos­mos with the aim of help­ing to make the world a beau­ti­ful place — even for our great grand­chil­dren. In the present day, she shows us around the hip Vien­na neigh­bor­hood that is Neubau.

Why does your job per­fect­ly match your city? Sus­tain­abil­i­ty and veg­an­ism are two of the main top­ics on my blog. I write about small life changes every­one can make in order to give back to our plan­et and ensure that our chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren will live a hap­py life. From all the cities I’ve vis­it­ed so far, Vien­na has always been one of the most for­ward-think­ing in terms of sus­tain­abil­i­ty. Peo­ple here are rid­ing their elec­tric scoot­ers, I bare­ly see any­one using sin­gle-use bags at the super­mar­ket and I’m hap­py to say that most of the restau­rants in Vien­na offer at least one veg­an option.

Café Liebling

When I want to relax after work I go to Café Liebling. They have a very laid-back atmos­phere and serve good food and drinks! When look­ing at reviews for this café, you’ll come across the descrip­tion Berlin style” very often. And that pret­ty much sums it up! It seems like they are open 247, since the pop­u­lar break­fast spot turns into a bar at night and doesn’t doesn’t close some­times until 4 a.m.!

Das Möbel

Erich und Ulrich

When you have to work on your lap­top, it‘s best to go to Das Möbel. They have WiFi and pow­er out­lets, good drinks and a relaxed atmosphere. 

2. Das Möbel | Burggasse 10, 1070 Vien­na, @das_moebel_das_cafe

The best place to peo­ple watch is Sankt-Ulrichs-Platz. Sit out­side the restau­rants Erich or Ulrich and you’ll see a lot of peo­ple — I always run into my friends there

Do you have one beau­ti­ful mem­o­ry that will for­ev­er be asso­ci­at­ed with Neubau? It’s hard to pick just one mem­o­rable expe­ri­ence, since I spend most of my time in this dis­trict. But what I look for­ward to the most every year is the Spit­tel­berg Christ­mas mar­ket. Locat­ed in the nar­row streets of the Neubau dis­trict, you can drink Austria’s pop­u­lar Glüh­wein” (mulled wine), buy a few Christ­mas presents and eat tra­di­tion­al Aus­tri­an food. It’s def­i­nite­ly one of my favorite expe­ri­ences every year!

Burggasse 24

You can find the nicest vin­tage clothes in Burggasse 24. It’s not only one of my favorite sec­ond-hand shops, but it’s also one of the coolest cafés in the city. It has a relaxed atmos­phere, amaz­ing vin­tage fur­ni­ture and it’s great for study­ing or working.

Where do you find inspi­ra­tion? I’m inspired by the beau­ty of Vienna’s his­toric build­ings. Tak­ing the Tram 1 along the Ring — which cir­cles the first dis­trict and stops at a hand­ful of his­toric sites — makes me feel very blessed to call this city my home. I do, how­ev­er, love trav­el­ing and explor­ing oth­er coun­tries and cul­tures. I think com­ing home after a long time abroad makes me appre­ci­ate Vien­na even more. This is and will always be my favorite inspiration.

Uppers & Downers

How do you spend a Wednes­day in your dis­trict? I start my day with a yoga ses­sion at Dok­tor Yoga, then I grab a deli­cious break­fast at Super­food Deli. I usu­al­ly go for their sig­na­ture açaí bowl and one of their lattes. Vienna’s Neubau dis­trict has amaz­ing bou­tiques and vin­tage shops, so on my way to my meet­ing spot (usu­al­ly a nice café like J. Hornig) I stop by at Uppers & Down­ers, Burggasse 24 or Bootik54. It’s hard to pick a lunch spot since there are so many great places to choose from! Café 7Stern or Erich are the restau­rants I tend to go to the most. After a lit­tle work-ses­sion at Das Möbel (I love work­ing from cafés), I either cook din­ner at home or meet friends at a restau­rant. One of my all-time favorite din­ner spots must be Tian Bistro. They have a lot of veg­an meals and offer an afford­able four-course menu every day.
