A holiday in the Servite neighbourhood, far away from the tourist trails
Small town flair in the heart of Vienna
The Servite neighbourhood around The Harmonie Vienna hotel is just a few minutes’ walk away from Ringstraße and the centre and yet you are immersed in a separate world here far away from the throngs of tourists. It’s hard to find any other district with as many students, academics and pensioners in one spot. Resulting in an extremely interesting mix of the middle-class and trendy. The Viennese and guests appreciate the neighbourhood’s village flair. Mingle with the locals and enjoy the unique attitude to life in this part of the city!
Sights in the Servite neighbourhood
Named after the Catholic order of the same name, the Servite neighbourhood is the heart of the Alsergrund 9th district. Little boutiques and restaurants have set up around the Servite Church. Cafés and delicatessens shape the scene and turn it into an original and at the same time cosy Viennese neighbourhood for enjoying a stroll and indulging.
The famous Strudlhofstiege, an important Viennese Art Nouveau building, is situated very close to the hotel. Its name became famous thanks to the novel of the same name by the Austrian author Heimito von Doderer (1951). Nearby Palais Liechtenstein was the first significant High Baroque building in Vienna and can be viewed during a guided tour. The Votive Church, Volksoper, university, Rossauer barracks and the stock exchange are also close to the hotel.
The Sigmund Freud Museum is housed at nearby Berggasse 19. Sigmund Freud’s former apartment and surgery have been set up as a museum today and accommodate some of his antiques collection alongside original objects and photos.
The Rossau Jewish Cemetery, the oldest preserved cemetery in Vienna, is also situated in the Servite neighbourhood.
The Harmonie Vienna boutique hotel is right in the middle of the Servite neighbourhood, in the charming Harmoniegasse. Spend a comfortable holiday here in a quiet location and yet still in Vienna’s vibrant city centre. We look forward to receiving your booking or no-obligation enquiry!
