Our home

Our spacious apartment is part of an award-winning terrace house designed by the famous Austrian architect Eugen Wörle in the 1970ies as an exclusive residence in the outskirts of Vienna. It has a very spacious living room with a fireplace, four bedrooms, one with a king size bed, three with a single bed (plus one additional guest bed), all with wooden floors and furnished with desks. A special feature is our huge (50 m2) sun terrace with its “100-miles view” overlooking Mödling, Vienna, and the Danube valley up to Slovakia and mountains that separate Austria from Hungary. There is one bathroom and a separate half-bath. We love music and have amongst others a piano, a violin and a cello.
There is care-taking and full maintenance of the house so you don’t need to worry about raking leaves or snow shoveling. We can also provide regular cleaning by our trusted cleaning lady as “all-inclusive” service – if you want. You are welcome to use our car (Skoda Roomster).

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four: Joachim (1968) is a professor for mathematics at the University of Vienna, Sabine (1971) a postdoctoral fellow in religious education, Mila and Ella are twins (2002) and attend junior high school. We have lived abroad for a number of years including in the USA, England and Israel. Now we are planning to spend a sabbatical at the UC Berkeley in 2016/17. We love music, running, and enjoying summer evenings with friends on our gorgeous terrace.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Mödling is a picturesque historic town and a typical “Sommerfrische” (summer recreation) place where in the 19th century well-to-do Viennese like Ludwig van Beethoven spent the summer. Today it is one of the most privileged living areas in the outskirts of Vienna and combines proximity to the city with living in the countryside. Public transport to Vienna with its world-class culture (classical music, theaters, clubs, universities,…) is excellent. It takes 20-30 minutes to down-town Vienna by either (very frequent) public transport or by car. Our close neighborhood is absolutely green and quiet. The Natural Reserve “Föhrenberge” with its characteristic pine trees start right behind our house and offers plenty of opportunities for running, hiking, rock climbing or mountain biking. It takes 5 minutes to reach the historic and partly car-free city center of Mödling with plenty of cafés and restaurants. The town offers all types of schools, an excellent music school, public swimming pools, a theater, a hospital and all kinds of medical facilities, as well as excellent shopping. Mödling is a viticulture area with traditional “Heurigen” to enjoy the local vine. Within one-hour drives you can reach the Alps and skiing resorts, Lake Neusiedl (one of Europe’s biggest lakes which is ideal for sailing and wind surfing), Hungary, and Slovakia.
