Vienna: Architectural Highlights
Whether in the historic city center, in the traditional wine taverns or on the other side of the Danube: Vienna is full of architectural highlights. In this city, contemporary and historic buildings coexist in a strikingly innovative manner.
If you take an early-morning stroll along Vienna’s Danube Canal, you not only enjoy the first rays of sun; you also gain a strong sense of the unique coexistence of nature, youthful creativity, and the legacy of Vienna’s most important architect. On the left, the waters of the canal murmur softly on their way to the Black Sea, while on the right the colourful graffiti on the stone retaining walls glows in the morning sun. And along this path you also make your first acquaintance with the legacy of the famous Jugendstil architect Otto Wagner: the Rossauer Lände and Friedensbrücke underground stations were built at the beginning of the twentieth century according to designs by this famous city planner. They also ensure quick access to the city centre.
