The new Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) – another milestone in the international reputation of the universities of Vienna – is nestled between the Vienna Exhibition Centre and the VIERTEL ZWEI business district in Vienna’s second district. After thorough evaluation, the location was decided on in favour of the area between the Ernst Happel Stadium and Praterstern because of the excellent transport links and ideal economic conditions.
For the operators, this location was perfect for the first MILESTONE property, because nowhere else combines so many advantages for students and residents of an exclusive student accommodation in a single location:
living next to the new WU.
It’s just 5 minutes on foot to the WU, so there can be no excuses for missing lectures. The U2 underground line is right at your doorstep, which connects all of Vienna’s major universities and takes you to every major access point in the city centre. But even if you don’t study at WU,
MILESTONE has ideal transport connections: you are only 1 station or 5 minutes’ walk from Praterstern, the central hub of the district, where several metro lines, trams and trains converge – in other words, your gateway to the city.
Looking for more nature or sport? The green Prater right outside the front door means 6 million m² of forest, meadows and waterways for your use; large parts are protected and offer untouched habitats for recreation. The 4.5 km long Hauptallee – one of the most popular running routes in Vienna – leads from Praterstern to the Lusthaus and thus almost as far as MILESTONE.
There, cyclists and in-line skaters get their money’s worth – the green Prater is an ideal recreational area for joggers, walkers and hikers, too. Finally, the Stadionbad, which can be reached on foot, features an Olympic-size swimming pool, and there are several football pitches, tennis, and beach volleyball courts in Prater – just come by and join in.
