The 18th District, Währing, (prime area) is a high-priced residential district that contains some lovely green areas, such as the Pötzleinsdorfer Park with its English-style landscaping, the highly attractive Türkenschanzpark, the Schubertpark, the Währingerpark, and various other small parks and gardens. Währing also features a number of charming Heurigen, or traditional Austrian wine taverns.

Cottageviertel, the most expensive residential area in Vienna, is partially located in this district.
