Ottakring is the 16th district in Vienna, Austria. Situated to the north of Penzing, this district is home to approximately 90,000 people, and the population has actually shrunk from over 180,000 a century ago. However, the area remains a bustling residential and commercial centre. Ottakring is most known for three reasons – Meinl coffee roasting, Ottakringerbeer and the Manner Schnitten wafers. There are many more interesting attractions here as well, such as the Schloss Wilhelminenberg palace and Kuffner Sternwarte. Visitors to this area will find a plethora of tourist activities along with wonderful food and drink.
- Stay at the Austria Trend Hotel Schloss Wilhelminenberg; this former castle provides one of the best views in Vienna, with scenic Viennesse vineyards surrounding it.
- Visit the Brunnenmarkt, Vienna’s second most extensive and exotic fresh foods market, which offers a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and spices at affordable prices.
- Visit Balkanmeile, a neighbourhood right on the border of Ottakring; this area is filled with Yugoslavian restaurants, cafes and nightclubs and is a perfect place to discover the unique sounds of Turbo Folk music.
Ottakring is easily accessible from all areas of Vienna. Travellers coming from the city centre can take the subway U3 to the station in Ottakring, directly opposite to Schwesternturm.
