Schreyvogel Alley

A Charming Historic Corner of Vienna

Schreyvogelgasse is a charming little alley hidden in the center of Vienna. It was named after one of the director’s of the Burgtheater, Austria’s National Theatre which is only a few streets away. His name means shrike bird. Slightly hilly, this is a calm corner in contrast to Austria’s busy capital city. It is home to a variety of beautiful, historic Austrian houses. These buildings are typically baroque; elegant spirals and decorations as well as oval windows standing out of the roofs. Their creamy white walls give them a sense of modesty. They are much smaller and more decorated than the surrounding tenement houses. Its romantic European atmosphere is accentuated by the cobblestone road and iron railings.
