Surroundings & Activities

The description “top location” was made for the Austria Trend Hotel Ananas. All of the capital’s main sights are within easy walking distance from its front door. And thanks to its excellent public transport links, Vienna’s farther flung treasures are just as easy to reach.

Sightseeing

Just around the corner is the traditional Naschmarkt, Vienna’s largest city centre market. Here you will find all the usual foodstuffs alongside a mouthwatering range of delicatessens from Italian antipasti to saffron tea from Iran. Vienna’s historic city centre and the impressive Ringstrasse boulevard – lined with a seemingly never-ending wealth of landmark buildings – is just a short walk away. Immerse yourself in the charm of nineteenth century Vienna as you take a stroll along this tree-lined thoroughfare. Or drop in at the Albertina or Secession for your fill of world-class art. The Theater an der Wien, whose repertoire features various works by Rossini, provides a treat for the ears.
