Also, as a practical matter, the separate administrative buildings for each district (except for the 13th and the 14th district which share one building) decentralize the municipal administration to some degree, meaning that citizens do not have to travel great distances e.g. to get a new passport.

  • The first district is Vienna's historic center and used to be the entire city until the mid-19th century.
  • Districts 2-9 (and 20 which was later separated from the second district) are known as Innenbezirke (inner districts) and composed of the former Vorstädte, which were located inside the Linienwall, the second ring of fortifications around Vienna. Those districts are located within the Gürtel today.
  • The other districts are known as Außenbezirke (outer districts) and are comprised of the former Vororte.
