On our latest visit to Vienna, we had the privilege of living in a typical Viennese apartment for a few days. Located on Kandlgasse, in hip Neubau neighbourhood, it was the perfect place to come back to at the end of the day.
The owner – a student at the city’s University of Arts – made this corner apartment feel unique and interesting. The old wooden floors, high ceilings, crystal-like chandeliers, vintage furniture, and artsy decorations were a real treat for the eyes.
With utmost pleasure we’d open the windows in the morning, letting the fresh air come in, and going downstairs to get coffee and pastries from one of the local cafes. We’d eat them at home, browsing through books and magazines, and making plans for the day.
Thanks to some really nice weather, in the evening we could watch the pink light of the sunset, a glass of wine in hand, and the flickering light of candles reflecting in the windows.
Sightseeing and sampling local cuisine made us happy. Coming back home to this place at the end of the day made us even happier.
