Spacious apartment with balcony, close to the great nature of Vienna forest yet within easy reach of city centre

Vienna has been voted one of the most liveable cities in the world - justifiably so. While enjoying all the benefits of a capital city, Vienna also offers great opportunities for lovers of nature and sports activities. We particularly appreciate the location of our apartment which is close to the "Wienerwald" (Vienna Forest) with its many hiking routes, scenic views and picknick spots. At the same time, Viena city centre is only a tram ride away (20 mins to "Schottentor", from here you can easily walk around to see many sights).

Our spacious and bright apartment is located in "Pötzleinsdorf" (part of the 18th district), very green and quiet. It is on the 2nd floor (which is the top floor of the Building; please note: there is no elevator). It is composed of
- a spacious living/dining room with an open kitchen and access to our sunny balcony,
- 3 bedrooms
- 1 master bedroom (double bed 180x200 cm),
- children's bedroom 1 (double bed 140x200 cm), and
- children's bedroom 2 (extendable bed 80/160x200 cm),
- 2 bathrooms
- 1 bathroom private to the master bedroom with bath, double-basins and toilet,
- 1 bathroom with shower
- 1 additional toilet.

We also enjoy the use of the garden (shared with our neighbours). This is a safe area to play for kids offering swings, a slide and a sandpit. It is also a nice spot for adults to relax. Our neighbours are very friendly and helpful.

Depending on the location of our exchange partner, we also offer our car for exchange (Ford Galaxy with 5-7 seats). So it will be easy to explore Austria and even Hungary, Slovakia or the Czech Republic. Some driving distances:

  • Wachau with ist medieval towns, vine-yards and great views of the Danube 1 hour
  • Vienna Alps for great scener and walking (Schneeberg, Semmering, Rax, Hohe Wand etc.), about 1-1,5 hours
  • Neusiedlersee (big lake in Burgenland, great for sailing or cycling): 1 hour
  • Salzburg: 3 hours (even faster by train)
  • Graz: 2 Hours
  • Salzkammergut lake district: 2,5 hours
  • Bratislava, Solovakia: 1 hour, also easily reached by boat or train

Of course there are many other options depending on your interests - do not hesitate to ask for advice!
