Our building offers modern living spaces for students (aged 18 and above) and seniors in a beautiful, central location. We also lease seminar and event rooms as well as underground parking spaces, and we’re seeking tenants for business premises that can be individually developed.

6 residential units for seniors

370 m² event location

18 underground parking spaces

Up to 400 m² of retail space

Excellent location

The Kolpinghaus is located on Althanstraße 51 at Alsergrund in the 9th district, one of the most beautiful districts in Vienna. Our building is centrally located and offers excellent transportation connections. Three subway stations are within walking distance: U6 Nußdorfer Straße, U4/U6 Spittelau and U4 Friedensbrücke. And the D streetcar line stops directly in front of the building. Vienna’s major universities are accessible by public transportation in 5–25 minutes.

And the inner-city green and recreational areas offer nearby opportunities to relax, such as the Danube Canal, the Liechtensteinpark, the Währinger Park, and the sports and leisure area of Vienna’s Danube Island.

The Kolpinghaus is close to many supermarkets (some of which are open on Sunday), restaurants, bars, and various opportunities for shopping and strolling. All of it is within walking or biking distance.

Live and study in Vienna – in the new Kolpinghaus Alsergrund

… that’s tradition in the Kolpinghaus Alsergrund. For 125 years, the Kolpinghaus has been a place of diversity and a temporary home to students from the different regions of Austria and the entire world. The old building was torn down in 2018 and completely rebuilt in recent years (after some delay caused by the pandemic).

The new residents can expect bright rooms with large windows (and balconies on the courtyard side) along with modern, cozy furnishings – an ideal environment for learning and well-being.

Common rooms and kitchens on the different floors invite you to cook, eat, and sit together. In addition, our residents have access to a fitness room, a music room, a washroom with multiple washing machines and dryers, a quiet room, a large, green inner courtyard, and WLAN.
