Surroundings & Activities

Hotel Doppio is located between the T-Center business complex and the thriving Neu Marx development zone – a business hub that also showcases some of the Austrian capital’s most impressive contemporary architecture.

The hotel directly benefits from the developments which are taking place in the vicinity, thanks to the excellent local, regional and public transport links that come courtesy of its proximity to the new Hauptbahnhof main railway station, completed in 2015, and the A23 Südosttangente motorway. Hotel Doppio is an ideal base for exploring everything Vienna and the wider region has to offer.

Sports & Recreation

Neu Marx’s modern skyline stands in sharp contrast to the vast open spaces of the Danube Island, whose leisure and recreation areas are easily accessible by public transport. The greenery, running routes and hire boats of the Danube Island provide welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Entertainment

If your plans don’t involve so much rest and relaxation, there’s also plenty of opportunity for more lively forms of entertainment close to the hotel. Gasometer, a residential and entertainment complex based around four converted gas storage towers, regularly attracts top music acts from a variety of genres, especially rock.  A regular date on the tours of the biggest rock stars is the nearby Ernst Happel Stadion, Austria’s national football stadium.

Vienna’s famous Prater park is a short walk from the stadium, with its charming old funfair including one of the city’s most well-known landmarks the Giant Ferris Wheel, tree-lined avenues and the traditional Schweizerhaus beer garden, serving refreshing draft beer and delicious Stelzen (crispy knuckle of pork) – perfect for a hot day. If you’re in need of some relaxation and pampering after your exertions on the rollercoasters and bumper cars, then you can unwind for a few hours at Therme Wien, or go for a leisurely stroll through the Kurpark Oberlaa gardens outside Vienna's legendary thermal baths.
