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.

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 24/7, sin­ce the popu­lar bre­ak­fast spot turns into a bar at night and doesn’t doesn’t clo­se some­ti­mes until 4 a.m.!

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.

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!

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.

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 acaí 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.
