Located immediately on the Danube and thus within Vienna’s largest recreation area, the Handelskai residence offers space for 225 students. Single rooms are available in different-sized residential units, many of which even have a direct view of the river! Thanks to the U6 stop and surburban railway station nearby, the city centre is not far away.
