SOWI - FACULTY OF SOCIAL & ECONOMIC SCIENCES
The SOWI – short for the Faculty of Social Sciences and Economics – is just a short walk from the historic old town, the Imperial Palace, the Tyrolean State Theatre and the Golden Roof. The district is lively and modern with plenty of options for going out and dining. Many restaurants and bars have settled in this area, which makes it ideal for a pre-theatre meal or a post-show drink – or simply because you fancy a night out. From an Italian wine bar and a traditional Tyrolean restaurant to Thai cuisine, the restaurants and bars near the SOWI are sure to hit the spot.
