Vienna Main Station: Exploring the Neighborhood

Let's Snoop Around

I hope y’all have been keeping up with the excitement and are looking forward to the opening of the THE FIZZ Vienna Main Station (BTW: Bookings started yesterday!) It has taken me a while to compile this post, to find the appropriate and meaningful elements that would matter to you, once you start living at our student residence. This time around, I got to go around and see how the surroundings of the building are coming up and what conveniences are present around the residence.

What surrounds you?

To start with our immediate neighbors, there are multiple projects in development in your neighborhood "Sonnwendviertel”, which range from hotels to apartment buildings. The whole area is newly developed, keeping in mind modern day comforts and ensuring a wholesome living experience for the residents of the community. The community is built around the Helmut-Zilk-Park with a walking/running track and open-air public jungle gym definitely checks the well being part on the list.

While looking for a place to call home, one predominantly also focuses on finding some important elements like public transport access, grocery stores,fooderies, wellness, doctors, pharmacies and general shopping opportunities.

1 stop and shop it all!

Apart from the upcoming neighborhood, the locality has much more to offer. Haupt-Bahnhofcity complex is an urban gold mine, bringing the world to your doorsteps. This last sentence was not meant to be cheesy, but it is true. The Vienna man station is about 5 min walk from our doorsteps and provides you with connections to multiple public transport options and the Haupt-Bahnhofcity houses 90 stores which include many shopping options, eating-out options and much more.

A to Z of Survival

Apart from the one shop stop at the main station, there is Billa, Merkur, Spar, and Hofer within a 5-8 min walk from the residence. There are two pharmacies located equidistant from our residence with an estimated travel time of 5-7 mins. I, of course, cannot take the liberty to suggest doctors in the locality, but upon research, you will find that there is a number of medical practitioner from different fields located near the residence.

Looking to eat out?

Since our residence is located near the train station, there are a number of hotels and restaurants in the area. You can find some highly rated eating outlets like Urban’s Lounge Restaurant, Motel One, Hotel Schani and Akakiko (Asian Cuisine), not to forget many other options to explore at Haupt-Bahnhofcity.

I hope this was a decent attempt to introduce you to the neighborhood. Also, I'll keep a look out for all of you, in case something interesting comes up near by and Ill have another excuse to write for this page. Spoiler alert: Soon, the first pieces of furniture will arrive! There will be some information about that, too.

Also, I don't know if you are aware that the Phase 1 of THE FIZZ Vienna Main Station booking are open. So you better hurry up and get your apartment now!!!
