About the route

Route North takes you from the 21st district of Vienna, Floridsdorf to its 2nd district, Leopoldstadt. Floridsdorf district is Vienna’s second largest and the third most populous in terms of area. Together with Donaustadt, it forms the part of the city located north of the Danube. The district was densely built-up mainly in the post-war period. Many larger municipal housing estates are located here. In part, the district is also still rural and industrial. Leopoldstadt, which is close to the city center, lies between the Danube Canal and the Danube. This district is characterized by Gründerzeit-style perimeter block development, modern residential buildings, allotments, large green areas such as the Augarten and the Prater, as well as industrial and port facilities. A new neighborhood is being built on the site of the former Nordbahnhof. It is one of the largest inner-city development zones in Vienna.

On Route North you will find the IBA neighborhood Neu Leopoldau, which is largely completed and already occupied, and the neighborhood “An der Schanze” which is still in the planning stage. Also located on this route are HOME 21, the first temporary housing project to be completed as part of the City of Vienna’s immediate housing program, the vivihouse in Nordmanngasse directly in the IBA neighborhood “An der Schanze”, a prototype for multi-story construction using sustainable building materials, and the two projects Loft-Flügel and die HausWirtschaft in the Nordbahnviertel, for which construction preparations are only now underway.
