Austria’s capital city is divided into twenty-three districts, each with its own unique character and a cornucopia of cultural, historical and geographical attractions. The first district is both the most central and most historically significant neighbourhood. Vienna’s historic centre will charm you with its quaintly winding alleyways and historic buildings, as well as its many restaurants, cafés and diverse shopping opportunities. The first district is not only interesting for tourists, but also a lively place to linger and enjoy a fascinating mix of tradition and modernity.
The first district is also the home of numerous opticians and eyewear stores. VIU’s store, the second of our three Viennese stores, is located on Bauernmarkt, a historic street that stretches from Michaelerplatz to Hoher Markt and is well known for its charming atmosphere.
Our store, which opened in 2017, has approximately sixty square meters of floor space and handsomely reflects VIU’s philosophy of combining functionality with the highest standards of design. Vienna’s public transport network provides excellent access to the first district, so you can take advantage of many easy options to reach our VIU store by train, bus or tram. And thanks to our long and convenient opening hours, you’ll have plenty of time to browse and choose.

We need this information in order to optimally manufacture your prescription eyewear. If you do not have these values or if you feel that they are no longer up to date, you can always schedule an appointment for a free eye test.
