Favoriten

favoriten-vienne

The tenth district of Vienna, this is where a large part of the city’s immigrant population has settled.

There are many restaurants serving international dishes due to the multicultural origins of its inhabitants, particularly from Turkey, Bosnia and Serbia, and many shops have opened to sell goods from various countries.

Although this may not be the most attractive district in Vienna, it’s actually a great place to stay in the Austrian capital on a budget; you’ll benefit from tram and train links to the city centre, and visitors who settle here during their time in Vienna will learn a lot about modern Austria and the country’s future.
