Photo series: Heartbeat Streets
There is no doubt that each of Vienna’s neighborhoods has its own identity and unique atmosphere. They seem to exhibit almost human characteristics and elicit specific emotions. This is exactly what our photo series “Heartbeat Streets” demonstrates. The visual language used by our selected photographers Mafia Mashi, Erli Grünzweil, Evelyn Dragan, Mafalda Rakoš and Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek, are as wide-ranging as Vienna’s various districts. Each of them interprets every Grätzel, or neighborhood, differently. The result is a series of unique snapshots that describe Vienna better than words ever could.
All of their photos and many more can be found in our image database photo.vienna.info.
Mafia Mashi: Meidlinger Markt
Autumnal charm: this is where you will find the authentic face of Vienna. Located in the inner-city Meidling workers district, in addition to traditional market stalls the Meidlinger Markt also offers a gourmet restaurant.
Erli Grünzweil: Karmeliterviertel
Cool and kosher: Jewish history is tangible on every street corner. There are outstanding places to eat at the Karmelitermarkt in the heart of the Grätzel and in the streets surrounding it.
Evelyn Dragan: Sonnwendviertel and Quartier Belvedere
Urban development on rails: the Sonnwendviertel is a residential area that meets all the requirements of a modern metropolis. The modern architecture of the Quartier Belvedere on the other side of the Central Station is a real eye-catcher.
Mafalda Rakoš: Freihausviertel
A creative cosmos: Just a stone’s throw from the Naschmarkt, this neighborhood with its laid-back stores and eateries is a hot-spot for Vienna’s creative scene.
Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek: Gußhausviertel
Gründerzeit and Viennese history: The spectacular new Wien Museum and the baroque Karlskirche make up the entrée for this neighborhood, which is dominated by Gründerzeit architecture. Its culinary delights range from international gourmet cuisine to traditional Viennese fare.

Guiding system for the visually impaired with special "leading stones" (grooves and knobs), which can be felt with canes or feet - for the passage between the individual artistic institutions on Karlsplatz (e.g. Künstlerhaus, Musikverein) and for crossing the Friedrichstrasse-Lothringerstrasse intersection (which has heavy traffic), the traffic lights have audible signals.
