Overview

Few areas in the Vorst├Ądte (once the suburbs, but now part of the city center) have managed to preserve their original 18th- or 19th-century appearance. The exception is the Spittelberg quarter, a district consisting of half a dozen narrow, cobbled streets between Siebensterngasse and Burggasse. In decline since the late 19th-century, the area was saved from demolition in the 1970s. Its baroque and Biedermeier houses were carefully restored and many of the streets pedestrianized. The district makes for a charming walk, particularly on Saturdays when a little craft market is held in the streets around Spittelberggasse. Spittelberg also boasts one of the city's densest concentrations of bars, cafes and restaurants.
