Many visitors to Vienna stay mainly in the inner districts, where the majority of the well-known sights - such as St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Hofburg or the Viennese Naschmarkt - can be found. It can however be well worthwhile to make a detour to the less touristy areas and to get to know the "other Vienna". Although these sides of the federal capital and its adjoining areas are less frequently immortalized on postcards, they also offer exciting culinary insider tips and places to go.
It is mostly business travellers who spend the night in business or event hotels and thus get to know the advantages of the outskirts of Vienna and the surrounding areas. I took a look at what the areas around the Mediaquarter Marx, the Wienerberg and the Pyramide in Vösendorf have to offer and came across some insider tips that are sometimes even surprising for long-time Viennese resident.
The Belvedere Palace, the Botanical Gardens or the Hundertwasser House - all these famous sights are located in the 3rd district. Less well explored is the area around the Mediaquarter Marx. But a visit pays off anyway.
Around 200,000 people live in Favoriten, a Viennese district that could not be more diverse. While there is a lot of activity around the Reumannplatz and you can enjoy yourself at the Therme Wien (thermal spa) in Oberlaa, the area around the Wienerberg is ideal for a bit of exercise.
The huge Shopping City Süd has given Vösendorf a name far the borders of Austria. There is much more to explore around the shopping centre on the outskirts of Vienna - and water plays a very special role.
