Vienna fires our imagination with sweeping waltzes and balls at the Opera, beautiful buildings, the Spanish Riding School and traditional cafés. That being said, even with all this history and tradition, Vienna also has a very different side – its young, trendy and creative side. In the Freihausvierteil, creativity thrives and young designers and artists exhibit and sell their work.
