Yeah, if you've got the time. It's not a bad area.

Are there any reasons why one should start believing in some miraculous change of a long lasting "tradition"?
It's a far more densely populated area.

A train of line 65 (meanwhile replaced by line 1) on Karlsplatz. The vast station system of Karlsplatz/Oper is home to the following lines: U1/U2/U4/1/2/62/D/WLB(local light rail to Baden in Lower Austria)/4A/59A. Did I miss any?
The southwestern entrance to the metro area is visible, as well:

Some pictures of Vienna's premetro system below the 4th and 5th districts. Out of Vienna's 28 tram lines, 4 use this rather short tunnel system with only 7 stations.

The ramp between Südbahnhof and Südtiroler Platz

Matzleinsdorfer Platz. As the system dates back to the sixties, it's a rather damp and unpleasant place:

Pics of the construction works of the new eastern extension of

The surroundings don't look as if there was a need for a metro:

Stadlau. This station will provide an interchanging possibility to the S-Bahn:
