Our Enziana Hotel Vienna is located in the 3rd district of Vienna (1030 Vienna)
This district is divided into 3 communities: Landstrasse, Erdberg and Weissgerber, thus the district coat of arms is divided into 3 parts. We are located in the community Landstrasse, which is symbolized by Saint Nicholas shown on the top left.
St. Nicholas stands on green meadow, wearing a silver skirt with red coat. In his right hand he holds a book with 3 golden balls on it and in his left hand a crook. In the fourth century, he is said to have given them away to the daughters of an impoverished nobleman to free his daughters as street girls. St. Nicholas was the patron of the convent St. Nicholas, which was formerly on the road. The community name Landstrasse derived from former pull-through Roman road. "Landstrazz" appears in 1302, first documented in the books.
