I'm planning a weekend trip for vienne, vienna, or wien - yes the city of M. Lang.
and I don't even know yet which quartier is good for shopping.
could you give me some tip which quartier is in, and just good for hang around?
where can I find good galeries for modern art?

while in waiting for the new do & co to open inside the haas haus there's only one semi-decent place to stay, which is the terence conran owned das triest. vienna is really centered and focused inside the ring which makes it convenient (you can walk or bike on the free bikes anywhere): great for sightseeing (if baroque architecture is your cup of tea), shopping is somewhat lousy but except for the hundreds of nice cafés i've lost the name of, there are a couple of decent restaurants (restaurant fabio, my favourite, on tuchlauben strasse).
you've probably done the art collection in the museum quarter (once again, all centralised geographically) -- and one of my favourite private exhibit places in europe is located here as well: the bawag foundation, which is a charity founded by the austrian bank to promote cutting edge contemporary art. it's located coincidentally just across from the above mentioned restaurant...

hope this isn't too late
but check out mariahilf & neubau
mariahilferstr. runs from the museumsquartier towards westbahnhof and neubaugasse intersects with it

thanks for the informations.
i've been there too, mariahilfer & neubaugasse to go to the select shop PARK.
but except that mariahilferstr.'s just crowded shopping street fulled with stores like h&m.
here's an webpage to get some vienna adresses:
and there's journal-format magazines that the unit f publish, and those are what you may pleased with.
