Friedrichsplatz is a small and quiet square in Vienna’s 15th district that is most frequented by kids dropping out of the school building on the northern side. Apart from the youngsters there is not much hustle under the shady trees of Friedrichsplatz. It is situated in a residential area between Westbahnhof (Western Train Station) and Äußere Mariahilfer Straße, which is the more multicultural extension of the city’s main shopping street. The 15th district is the most ethnically mixed neighborhood in town, but due to cheap rents and some lively streets it slowly gets more popular with young people and students as well. Since the Wombat’s Hostels have settled down in the area you will also see loads of backpackers from all over the world in this edge of town.
