Tagsatzungfor the meaning in historical Switzerland."
Vorort is a German term that could be considered roughly equivalent to a
suburb. Vororte usually have their own business centre. They are the remainders of formerly separate neighbour towns, or have been founded as satellite towns. The term is contrasted with " Vorstadt", which describes a more densely populated area grown at the outline of a city centre.
Vienna, the historical terms "Vorstädte" and "Vororte" have very specific meanings. The "Vorstädte" were located outside the city walls, but within the " Linienwall", a second ring of fortifications outside the city. The city walls were located in the place of the modern Ringstraße, while the "Linienwall" has been removed to give way to the " Gürtel" (both being rings of streets around the central city). All of the historical municipalities were merged into Viennaduring the late 19th century. The former "Vororte", which have in large parts become as urban as the "Vorstädte", now make up Vienna's so-called outer districts (10th to 19th and 21st to 23rd district).
