7th district: Neubau in Vienna
Why locals love it
The 7th is the major area for lifestyle, up-to-dateness and forward thinking. It is easily accessible with the subway line U3 and is very close to Vienna's biggest shopping street - Mariahilferstraße.
The best streets to get a feeling for this district are: Neubaugasse, Siebensterngasse, Kirchengasse ...
Why you should visit it
It used be a very unattractive spot with low-rent-houses, but over the last decades the young and cultural interested occupied the district and turned it into a vibrant area full of small cafés and restaurants as well as individualistic clothing stores and shops.
