spacious (25 sqm) and bright (3 big windows) room in 19th century apartment house on 3rd floor. design furniture, high ceilings, antique parquet, comfortable bath and separate toilet. central heating and a fully equipped kitchen.
the apartment is located in vienna´s most vibrant and trendy neighbourhood called the "brunnen-viertel" (16th district).
there is a daily "organic" farmers-street-market, several supermarkets, pharmacies, drugstores and plenty of art-shops "just outside the door" waiting for you to discover.
enjoy small music-, theatre- and art-exhibitions or the multicultural flair of the streets nearby all year round.
feeling like staying "at home"? no worries, the apartment has all implicitness you can think of: from a fully equipped kitchen, cosy sofa, plenty of books and magazines, a home-thater-beamer, central heating - to a bath-tub.
so, every comfort you can think of, is near at hand, as well as public transport connecting you to all other major and minor attractions of vienna.
if you like "vintage-style-", "arty-" and "off the beaten path-" experiences, you surely find all of those, while staying at my place.
just around the corner of the famous daily-street market called "brunnenmarkt", where fresh and colorful delights for breakfast, dinner or for a gift are plentiful and at viennas best prices.
don't worry if your on a tight budget! there are dozens of supermarkets around - even exotic ones (turkish, thai & african).
walking distance to the famous 7th district (hipster art, fashion and nightlife center).
and last but not least the stunning "grundsteingasse" - a trendy street with a vibrant craftsmanship, arts galleries and club life, just around the corner!
only 10 min to vienna city center with public transport (subway - U6 - and several trams - 46, 2 & 43 - and buses 48A + 2 free rental city bike stations).
so very close to all main touristic attractions.
shared (with host): toilet, bath, kitchen & living room; wifi for internet and hifi, computer and computer -monitor on demand (ask the host);
varies: sometimes on a daily basis; sometimes the whole apartment just for guests for a few days.
modern washer (for clothes - ask the host for help), dishwasher, oven, fridge & freezer. a pavoni and simple bialetti coffee machine available as well as a samovar for tea.
and for all those who need it warm and cosy: there is a central heating - of course! :-).
common some sense guidelines:
- sharing means taking care of each other. so be kind and respectful, as you wish to be treated.
- be careful with open fire and/or in other potentially dangerous tools and situations.
- please don´t smoke where you sleep.
- always take off your shoes in the anteroom and use house shoes in the apartment (damageable parquet floor) please.
- handle all household equipment and inventory with the necessary care.
- please avoid to lose the apartment keys.
sustainable living recommendations:
- we have waste separation for: residual waste, paper, metals & plastics. try to participate.
- try to avoid buying plastic wrapped and one-way products. ask for help if you need guidance.
- buy local / organic groceries and other products. avoid "convince-food", there is a well equipped kitchen and a huge, multicultural farmers market just around the corner.
- DON`T buy (plastic) bottled water. the tap-water quality in vienna is perhaps the best in the world (in comparison with other large cities).
- try to save energy: turn off all unnecessary stand-by devices. use lights only when needed and try not to waste fresh-water (but you still can take a bath ... can be quite romantic ;-)
- enjoy vienna by foot (free of charge (!) public bicycles or public transport). vienna is a relative small city.
"attract what you expect and reflect what you desire,
become what you respect and mirror what admire."
this quote caught my attention, some time ago.
i like it, cause it summaries my perspective
on life quite well.
ever so often i´m considered as a renaissance man, a creative thinker. but i´m as much a wanderer, voyager and facilitator.
i work in sales and marketing currently. but my professional roots run deep in art, engineering and montessori-influenced education. with a passion for storytelling design and science.
i love to cook and travel the globe, listening to captivating stories. sometimes telling mine. my bicycle and (running) shoes are my prior source of commuting - sometimes i relax while sketching or painting whatever catches my eye. should laziness overwhelm me, i tend to watch documentaries, selected series or movies of all kinds of genres. many times just enjoying a good book (printed, ebook or audio).
and from time to time, you could meet me dancing or enjoying a good concert as well.
