If you want to experience Vienna’s ancient history in piece, set course to the university. Because of its impressive corridors, several movies have been shot here, including an Austrian no-budget Star Wars-film that was released this June.
Founded in 1365, the University of Vienna is one of the oldest universities in the world. And the good news is that you don’t have to be a student or professor to enjoy the cool shades of the ancient corridors. The relatively quiet inner courtyard has become one my favorite reading spots, also thanks to the little coffeeshop that offers good coffee for a Dutch price, which is a rare combination in the inner city.
From its comfortable terrace, you have a nice view over the inner garden, where students are taking a sunny break and an occasional tourist is counting the faces of famous scientists who used to study here.
