Description: Wieden is Vienna's fourth district and was founded in 1850. It is a typical inner-city neighbourhood; a densely-populated area without many open green areas or parks.
A large part of the neighbourhood makes up the historical centre of Vienna, considered a World Heritage Site and home to the Karlsplatz with the Karlskirche (Saint Charles Borromeo Church), the Museum of Vienna, the main building of the Technical University (Technische Universität) and the Evangelical School (Evangelische Schule).
The close location of the Karlsplatz to the Opera and other concert halls makes it one of Vienna's cultural centres as well as providing a connection for metro lines U1, U4 and U2. The Saint Charles Borromeo Church, one of the city's most important symbols, was commissioned by the Emperor Charles VI in 1713 and built between 1716 and 1739.
The most widely visited museum in the district is the Museum of Vienna, presenting an overview of the city's history throughout the centuries, as well as a wide collection of different works of art. It includes the house of the composer Schubert with a display that represents the last stage in the life of the famous composer.
The Technical University (Technische Universität) is another symbolic building along with its adjacent library; nicknamed 'the owl' after the huge ornamental bird that decorates its façade.
In the north of the district the market of Naschmarkt is home to every different kind of food produce as well as articles of clothing and other products. It is well worth taking a stroll around the market, and experiencing its unique atmosphere on Saturday mornings.
Night lovers will find a range of different venues to go out for a drink such as the legendary Schikaneder, a former cinema now home to a popular bar with music and live DJs.
