Landstraße is the 3rd Viennese district and is located very central. It has a modest total area of approx. 7.42 km2 and a population of 88,125 people.
As many of its neighbouring districts, Landstraße is also characterised by a combination of historic touristic attractions, green and pedestrian areas and marvellous living and commercial spaces. A substantial part of the 3rd district is known as the “diplomatic district” as there are even 24 consulates and embassies of various different countries (e.g. those of the Russian Federation) located. Another special feature of the 3rd district is the transport system: 2 different metro lines, railway lines, regional railways and the CAT (City Airport Train) form an impressive transit hub.
Landstraße is a highly populous district. According to statistics, the total population rises steadily (for comparison: in 2011 81,000 citizens lived in Landstraße) and causes an increase in the demand for living space; currently, the average living space per person is around 42 m². In total, there are 3,732 buildings in the 3rd district and 380 of them were built after 1991. The average price for a square meter is around € 4,650.
The 3rd district charms with its historic tourist attractions and natural monuments: Palace Belvedere, Viennese City Park, Viennese Concert Hall, Imperial Court Theatre, Akademietheater, Hundertwasserhaus, Palace Schwarzenberg, Landstraßer Hauptstraße etc. There were around 1,441,047 overnight stays in Landstraße in 2014.
