There is not much Pfeilgasse stands out for. It is just an average small and quiet street traversing Vienna’s 8th district Josefstadt. Places of excitement are few, with the most remarkable one probably being the infamous Pfeilheim, a student dormitory that is currently being renovated. After the reopening in September 2011 it definitely has a reputation for excessive student parties to defend. Pfeilgasse also crosses two small parks: Tigerpark and, a bit further out, a nameless square with some benches and bushes. Only a few footsteps further you reach the busy Gürtel area with its numerous bars, cafés and music clubs.
