Spittelberg and St. Ulrich: Two Old-Worlde Suburbian VillagesThis Tour is suitable as a walking TourThis Tour is ideal for school partiesThis is a barrier free Tour
A Successful Gentrification

Take a walk back into history. Only metres away from the Ringstrasse and right behind the Museum Quarter lie two former self-governing suburbian communities, the Spittelberg (which took its name from the hospital - Spital in German - that used to own land there) and the village of St. Ulrich, cluttered around the baroque church of the same name. Both look back on a century-old history of notoriety. Spittelberg, in particular, was a quarter known for its low-life, it was full of dives, gambling dens, and establishments of dubious reputation. In the 1970s, however, the city recognized the great potential of this part of the 7th district. Its buildings were renovated with love, good taste and a lot of money, and restored to their original appearance. Specialist shops, pubs, bars and restaurants have filled them with life.
