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
Kugelmugel has everything I look for in a nation; a humorous name, a spherical shape and free from income taxes. What Kugelmugel lacks in physical natural beauty, it makes up for in modernist architecture and proximity to ferris wheels. Everyone must go to Kugelmugel immediately,...More
This is genuinely one of the weirdest places I have had the honour of visiting. I would recommend brushing up on your Kugelmugel history prior to visiting, through the only legitimate repository of information - wikipedia. The border was closed when we went, but crossing...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
ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
