Vienna "Treehouse" Flat - On a private park in the city center

Vienna at its best! Old and New, in the heart of the city while in a serene park that is silent at night.

We call our light-filled home a treehouse because from Spring to Fall we live among the leafy trees, perched overlooking an amazing private park that is ideal for children. Our beautiful, modern flat (added to the building in 2010) sits atop a traditional building built in the late 1700s. Our large (~160 sq M) single-floor 3-bedroom, 3-bath flat is filled with light from morning to afternoon encouraging you to get up and have coffee on the large balcony (20 sq M) before you get moving to see the sights of Vienna. From the open kitchen you have a view of the oversized living room out to the park with an expanse of windows. If you are lucky, you will hear the delightful sounds of pianos from the music conservatory across the street.

We live a few minutes walk from the Opera and Karlsplatz (where you can find the U1 Metro) and the very center of the city . Within a two minute walk you are right in the middle of the largest market in town, the vibrant Naschmarkt (where you'll also find the U4 Metro--15 minutes to Schönbrunn Palace and the zoo) which also hosts wine bars, restaurants, and live music. Multiple grocery stores and pharmacies are within a two minutes walk (including a fully organic market). Around the corner is a small art district with galleries, clothing shops, and unique cafes to explore. Everything is nearby, the aquarium, the Spanish Riding School, the two main shopping districts, the Hofburg Palace, the Musuemquartier. No need for a car!

Finish your day of exploring the city by sitting on the balcony enjoying the delightful sounds of children playing (park closes at 7pm) quickly followed by birds singing as the sun begins to set.

With all modern comforts (Washer/Dryer Combo, A/C in every room, modern Siemens kitchen, cable TV, fast wifi--even on the balcony) you'll quickly feel at home. For the kiddos, we have toys, kids beds, a crib, two Stokke highchairs...and the park...did we mention the park? :) Your house key serves as your key to the private entrance to the park. The park, filling the the center of a city block, is the heart of a wonderful community.
