Inner City – First District
It is the Old Town of Vienna. 100 BC the Roman armee founded a military camp called Vindobona. Around 200 AD, the fortress became a “municipium”, reflecting the rise of cultural and intellectual life. Until the city boundaries were expanded in 1850, the Innere Stadt was congruent with the city of Vienna. Afterwards, Vienna gained even more historical significance, please follow this link. Today, the Ringstraße circles the Innere Stadt along the route of the former city walls. The first district is, with a workforce of 100,745, the largest employment locale in Vienna. This is partially due to tourism, as well as the presence of many corporate headquarters due to the district’s central location.
