Garden Palace Liechtenstein
- Walking through the opulent Garden Palace Liechtenstein, out of sight in the 9th district, surrounded by its baroque architecture and its lavish grounds is like sharing a secret with those who know and love the city, as not many of the Vienna’s guests are aware of this hidden marvel.
- Discovering the Wotruba Church and you’ll agree, the place is “beautifully odd” or even “alien” as it sits in a city renowned for its traditional, baroque architecture. The Wotruba Church is made up of 152 asymmetric concrete blocks that seems to skew the space in a brave and inspiring fashion.
- The "castle of dreams”, built for the Empress Elisabeth, is how Emperor Franz Josef described the Hermes Villa in the Lainzer Tiergarten. Does a visit here make us all dreamers, somnambulists adrift in this dream-like space?
Vienna University of Economics and Business
- Seeing the new campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business is like taking a breath of the new amid steeped tradition. This collage of modern architecture and contemporary styles, juxtaposes the older essence of the city. The campus’s bold style was planned by Zaha Hadid, NO.MAD architects and Crab Studio.
Old AKH (Vienna General Hospital)
- The former grounds of the Vienna General Hospital and the Campus of the University of Vienna are certainly places worth exploring. Aside several restaurants and cafes, the hospital’s old site remembers another era, a time when the Narrenturm or Fool’s Tower, a round building built in 1784, was used to accommodate mentally ill patients.
- The cultural quarter of Vienna Servitenviertel, in the 9th district is home to the Freud Museum. Tell us, how do you feel about that?
