Worth a look and very interesting story (check Wikipedia), definitely a novelty to get a picture of but don’t allocate more than 10 minutes to stop by

Is this a separate country or not? Should TripAdvisor really list it under Vienna? It should be an oddity but being slap in the middle of a fairground makes it less so. You can’t go in, or do anything other than take pictures, but it’s...More

The entire nation is a work of modern art, I loved it! If you're riding the Prater wheel, this is only a short walk south from the exit. Go there and walk around the nation, which is a true monument to freedom, in spite of...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
