A Neighbourhood in Transition

Kaisermühlen is a part of the 22nd district. It lies north of the Danube, seemingly far-off the beaten tourist tracks, yet ony a five-minute metro ride away from St. Stephen's Cathedral. It takes its name from the ship-mills that used to moor along the banks of the northern branches of the Danube. The channelling of the river cut it off from the city, paving the way for industrialisation and the allottments of Vienna's rapidly growing proletariat. It is hard to believe that today it houses the United Nations Centre and will soon pride itself in having Austria's tallest skyscraper designed by French star architect Dominique Perrault.Included in this illustrated tour is a visit of one of Vienna's most interesting modern churches.
