Most of the district is inhabited by immigrants from Eastern Europe and Asia. The offices of many companies and industrial enterprises are located here. In recent years, the area is actively growing new construction.
The Landstraße district is located in the southeastern center of Vienna and covers an area of 7.42 km² or 1.8% of the city. It is located along several Danube terraces, where the Danube Canal forms the eastern border, and the Vienna River forms the north-western border. In the east, the Landstrasse border begins with the gardens of the Belvedere Palace and extends along railway lines running to the south from the Hauptbahnhof station.
Since it is one of the central districts of the Austrian capital, it is distinguished by a combination of a huge number of historical attractions, green and pedestrian zones, residential buildings and offices. A significant part of the Landstrasse is occupied by the so-called Diplomatic Quarter, which houses more than 30 diplomatic missions and embassies of different countries.
