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.
