Spittelberg has been my favourite area in Vienna (not only mine I guess) throughout the year. Those picturesque cobblestone pedestrian streets with dollhouses are so beautiful (at least their facade – no idea what is happening inside) that everytime I look at them make me wonder “Why I cannot have an apartment here?”.
On December, people usually come to Spittelberg for the Christmas market. But there are reasons for which I visit Spittelberg in the rest of the year. There are restaurants, pubs, small shops, and above all, the lovely shop of the Austrian fashion designer Lena Hoschek. I personally visit the Spittelberg Christmas market once per year but if I am not in the mood of mingling with the crowd, I still come here the rest of the year. The quarter has a village-like character, ideal for walkaways with a charme of a past decade.♥
