Rosa Linde is centrally located at the intersection of Lindengasse and the quiet part of Neubaugasse. Vienna’s 7th district is part of the extended city centre and a popular area for shopping, going out and cultural activities. The population share of 20-39 year olds is 36% and thus significantly higher than average in Vienna. This underlines that the 7th district is a district for young entrepreneurs, artists and creative – which is also demonstrated by the many boutiques and cafés.
Neubau (i.e. the 7th district) has become a focus point for those interested in the arts ever since the completion of the Museum Quarter (only 8 minutes walk). Important museums there are the Leopold Museum and the MUMOK (Museum of Modern Art). Leopold Museum boasts one of the largest Egon Schiele collections world-wide, but also works by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and Albin Egger-Lienz. The Hofmobiliendepot (Imperial Furniture Depot) in Andreasgasse, just around the corner from Rosa Linde, is one of the largest furniture museums in the world. It is home to more than 160.000 objects with a focus on the Habsburg empire.
Spittelberg is only 5-6 walking minutes away from Rosa Linde. Even today, the many well preserved Biedermeier-style buildings and narrow streets have preserved the character of the old village. The Christmas market every December has made the Spittelberg popular not only with the locals, but also with tourists from all over the world. Because of the many restaurants, bars and crafts shops, Spittelberg and nearby Museum Quarter attract a hip crowd. Spittelberg is also part of the world cultural heritage Historic Centre Vienna.
Mariahilfer Straße and Neubaugasse – located just at Rosa Linde – are two of the most popular shopping streets in Vienna. Mariahilfer Straße becomes a huge pedestrian zone every Saturday in December. Viennese then enjoy Christmas shopping without being disturbed by traffic.
Vienna’s first district is the historic centre of the city and part of the cultural heritage Historic Centre Vienna. It is surrounded by the Ringstraße, a magnificent boulevard with many historic buildings – from university to parliament. Ringstraße and imperial palace – where Austria’s emperors resided until the end of the monarchy – as well as today’s governments district are easily accessible in a short walk as well.
Naschmarkt is also only a 15 minutes walk away from Rosa Linde. Naschmarkt is one of the largest markets for vegetables, fruit and meat, but also a popular disctrict for Vienna’s night owls. Nearby you will find many cafés, bars, restaurants, most gay places in
Vienna, and the Theater an der Wien. This theatre is renowned for its opera productions but also because Beethoven
used to live here.
