How nice it is to live in Döbling… is demonstrated by two contemporary residential development projects – a privately commissioned multi-family residence with four different sized units and a small office in Feldgasse, and an unusual apartment building in Kaasgraben, clad in aluminum sheet-metal.

The ‘Aryanized’ Kaasgraben:
Formerly, celebrities of the Vienna music scene frequented the villas in Kaasgraben.

Yet the tune changed: the dispossession and expulsion of the villas’ owners (among others the director of ‘Universal-Edition,’ the secretary-general of the Concert Hall Association and composers of ‘despicable’ music such as Egon Wellesz and Alexander Zemlinsky) marked the end of the Vienna modern period.

The Heurige (wine garden) Zawodsky is close by for those who wish to engage in further discussion and a leisurly conclusion to Sunday’s tour in Kaasgraben…
