Things to do, places to go

  1. An art & cultural center in the bread factory — Brotfabrik. Perfect example for an adaptive reuse without being too touristic.

  2. Das Packhaus: The temporary use project and Vienna’s largest startup hub.

  3. Between 1918 and 1934, Vienna was ruled by the Social Democrats government and they launched an extraordinary campaign to provide housing for working-class residents. Visit Karl Marx Hof and The museum in the laundry room!
