    • To travel from Arthotel Ana Enzian to Belvedere Palace, you will first have to walk to the Wien Rennweg Bahnhof. From this railway station catch a train Wien Quartier Belvedere Bahnhof. Then head towards the Belvedere Palace which is hardly at a 10-minute walking distance from the railway station. While moving around Vienna, ask the locals about transportation modes, as they would prove to be the best source of information.
