Particularly noteworthy are the Art Nouveau houses by Otto Wagner. These can be admired especially well on a walk from the left Wienzeile towards Karlsplatz. Mariahilfer Church is located directly on Mariahilfer Straße – it is inconspicuous on the outside, but a look inside is well worth it!
With two top institutions of the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien (“United Stages of Vienna”), Mariahilf has a lot to offer theater-wise: the Raimundtheater brings modern musicals to the stage; at the Theater an der Wien you can see great concerts all year round.
The Museum Quarter, located at the end of Mariahilfer Straße, attracts all museum and art lovers. There is also a lot going on in the evening: young people meet at the MQ-typical “Enzi” furniture in the courtyard and spend the balmy summer nights there. So, if you want to see typical Viennese summer night life, just stop by and join in!
For our young (and older) guests, we recommend the “house of the sea” in the former flak tower. Tip: on the roof of the tower there is a café with a great view over Vienna. However, you can only visit this with a ticket to the marine world.
