Since I moved in summer I call the 5th district which Viennese call Margareten, my (new) home.
It is traditionally a district for working people and has still low rent prices yet is very near to Naschmarkt and kinda in between the inner district and Schönbrunn.

Funfact, the 5th district has the highest numbers of Gemeindewohnung. Those are specially built by the government and have the advantage of being lot cheaper than normal flats. They are often boring-looking and brown but sometimes you spot cute mosaics on them.
I could do another post about the mosaics but I am not that tempted to go outside in the cold and wander about when I can curl up in front of the heater ;)

Depending on when they were built, some are a lot nicer than others and Reumannhof is often named to be one of the nicest.
It is a rough beauty with a hidden charm for me.

I still miss the fresher air I had over the Danube but living in the city is just so much more convenient.
