Our apartment is close to the center. We also live next to one of Vienna's "attractions", the Ottakringer Brewery. During summer the brewery is often venue for all kinds of concerts, flea markets, "Braukultur-Wochen" etc.
We also live close to hipster-place "Yppenplatz" and the "Gürtel", the Viennese hotspot for pub tours, dancing, small concerts, meeting young people.
To the city center (Stephansdom etc.) it is about 20 minutes with the tram.
