    Check out a local market with Asian flair

    Hannovermarkt is a lively marketplace that functions mostly as a farmers market, though it has a distinctly Asian flavour in its offerings.

    When you visit this market, you'll find a variety of items mostly consisting of locally grown food, but it's not always the Austrian food you might expect. Asian flavours and ingredients are available in excess here, so it's the best place in town if you're looking for something that wouldn't normally be available in Austrian markets.
