One Great City – Twenty Three Districts
The districts of Vienna are divided into 23 districts called “Bezirke”. Vienna itself is divided into two parts, The Danube and The Donaukanal.
Vienna, Austria’s capital and its’ own province has a population of about 1.75 million people. Vienna grew from the Roman settlement and became an important trading site in the 11th century.
It was the capital of the Babenberg dynasty and later the Austrian Habsburgs. Since World War I, Vienna has been the capital of the Republic of Austria.
All the districts of Vienna have their own personal character and flavor.
Finding Your Way Around
When in Vienna, you can figure out how the districts of Vienna addresses by using this code:
* number 1 for Vienna
* two digits for the district
* number for a mailing subdivision (usually zero)
For example 1010 is the first district; 1190 the 19th district, 1220 the 22nd district….you get the point.
You can always tell which district you’re in by looking at the nearest street sign – the street is always preceded by the district number.
The first district begins at the city center and the other 22 districts spiral out from there. When looking at a map of all the district of Vienna, you will notice the numbers increasing in a clockwise way.
Each district of Vienna has a number and a name. Public transport is well used in Vienna, and is safe for getting around the city both during the day and at night.
Over the next few months, I will be documenting Vienna’s districts individually as each district has so much to offer. This historical city named the world’s most livable city for the 7th time in a row is a must-see when traveling through Europe.
Beginning in January 2017, I will be adding each district for you on a bi-weekly basis.
This way, you will be able to view the districts of Vienna individually to learn about sights, things to do as well as the best places to visit, eat, shop and relax!
I will be showing you some of the best places this city has to offer, like the ones below and many more.
