  • Meidling is the 9th district of the city maybe less known to tourists of the neighborhoods inside the Ring but equally rich in places of great historical and artistic interest. Here you will find the University, the old Campus One, Rathaus with adjoining Park and the votive church with just off the House of Freud and Schubert while immediately after the metro Schottentor is located the complex of elegant area rich in Museumsquartier. viennese-style Café and restaurants just battered by throngs of tourists and dotted with small gems to be discovered.
