Vienna - off the beaten path (tour #1)

There have been many threads about Vienna on SSC in the past. I'm sure you all know the typical tourist spots by now and I'm not going to bore you with more photos of St Stephens or Schonbrunn.
So in this thread I'd like to show some parts of the city few tourists ever get to see, but which are interesting enough to merit at least a brief visit.

The area covered in this first part is roughly Vienna's 20th district (Brigittenau). Some photos are technically part of the 19th district, but I included them anyway as they are right on the border and have many things in common.

Brigittenau is one of Vienna's most dense areas and it has a very ethnically diverse population. Through new developments, it has been steadily gaining in popularity in recent years, especially among young Austrians. Last but not least, it is home to Vienna's tallest building, Millenium Tower.

@Christos and Stefan: Thanks!

Heading out of town this Saturday, I had the opportunity to snap this picture of the northwestern part of the district. It's mostly residential buildings and public housing up there.
