The Spittelberg neighbourhood
A slum renewed offers a cool mix of Baroque architecture and bohemian vibe.
A charmingly gentrified neighbourhood.
During the 19th century, Spittelberg deteriorated into a ghetto, a crime- and prostitution-ridden cesspool, and it remained a seedy "red-light district" well into the 20th. In the 1970s, however, the area started gentrifying, with abandoned buildings turned into shops, restaurants, museums, and other establishments with a kind of boho/alternative vibe. It's an absolutely great way to experience both that side of Vienna as well as some completely lovely old architecture and atmosphere - an interesting juxtaposition indeed. It's also known for its annual Christmas market.
