Are you looking for the perfect destination for your group trip? Allow us to introduce our most popular a&o accommodations in the trendiest cities in Germany and the rest of Europe.

Group trip to Prague

Find your comfortable accommodation with us in the Czech capital of Prague. You’ve got two a&o hostels to choose from. You and your fellow travellers can explore the Golden City together by foot, and head to the Prague Castle Hradčany or marvel at the 520-metre-long Charles Bridge with its 30 baroque statues of the Madonna and other holy figures. Many artists and souvenir sellers call the bridge their workplace. In addition, many clubs, bars, and discos can be found in the surrounding area. Prague is renowned for its artisans, who offer traditional handicrafts in countless boutique shops. Make sure to save some time for strolling through the small alleyways and enjoy a hot tea or coffee in one of the many charming cafés. You and your fellow travellers should certainly remember to savour a true culinary highlight: Czech hot dogs (wieners in a croissant) are (almost literally) on the lips of all foodies!

Group trip to Amsterdam

The Dutch capital of cool Amsterdam is the perfect destination for an exciting group trip: Our hostel a&o Amsterdam Zuidoost is situated just 5 minutes from the impressive Johan Cruyff Arena, the home of AFC Ajax which regularly hosts large sporting events as well as concerts. The subway ride from the hostel to the old town – with its world-famous canals and bridges – only takes around 20 minutes. Amsterdam has an amazingly wide range of attractions: art lovers are recommended a tour of the Van Gogh Museum or the Rijksmuseum. The Anne Frank House is also certainly worth a visit! The stately Vondelpark invites you to take a stroll and spread out with a nice picknick – don’t forget to pack your lunch… or just order a lunch package with us! Go for a walk and explore the Jordaan district in the western part of the old town to marvel at the typical architecture, peruse one of the many small boutiques, or settle down for a beer or a hot chocolate in a typical Dutch café or bar.

Group trip to Berlin

Are you and your group travelling to Berlin? The German capital has no fewer than 4 a&o hostels, all with central locations just a short trip away from the Alexanderplatz, one of the central squares of Berlin and the ideal starting point for a sightseeing tour which takes you to some of the highlights Berlin has to offer. Why not venture all the way up the Berlin Fernsehturm (Television Tower) beforehand to get an overview of the metropolis to then start strolling towards the Rotes Rathaus, the city hall and seat of the Mayor, and onwards to the Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate). Berlin’s lush green heart, the Tiergarten park, is nestled right behind the city’s landmark building, with ample space to take a walk and catch your breath. Of course, shopping enthusiasts will get their money’s worth in Berlin as well: we particularly like the Kurfürstendamm, Friedrichstraße, Prenzlauer Berg, and Friedrichshain shopping areas. Want to shake things up at night? Keep an eye of “Kreuzkölln”, which is how Berliners affectionately call the trendy neighbourhood where the Neukölln and Kreuzberg districts meet. Our a&o Berlin Mitte and a&o Berlin Friedrichshain are located close by.

Group trip to Hamburg

You’ll have plenty of options to plan your group trip to Hamburg, with 4 a&o hostels to choose from. The list of true Hanseatic highlights your group should certainly not miss out on includes the harbour – your boat tour of the harbour departs from the Landungsbrücken (Hamburg Jetties) –, the unique architecture of the Speicherstadt with its famous spice and carpet warehouses, as well as the Elbe Philharmonic Hall and the Jungfernstieg street. Fancy a shopping spree? Start from the latter to head to the famed Hamburg Alsterhaus Department Store and then onwards to the Neuer Wall with its elegant boutiques. Feel like venturing off the beaten path a bit? Visit the trendy Sternschanze neighbourhood, which the natives of Hamburg simply refer to as “Schanze”. Explore the many small shops, also run by local designers, before diving into a café or typical district pub. Don’t forget to sample a Franzbrötchen (cinnamon roll), which is the Hanseatic counterpart to the famous Berliner. The Reeperbahn is another must-see, as are the Inner and Outer Alster, the Övelgönne bank of the Elbe river, Wittenbergen, and Blankenese.

Group Trip to Vienna

Vienna offers a choice of 2 a&o Hotels for your group trip to stay at; both locations are very central and therefore ideal starting points from which to explore the imperial city. Following on the trail of Empress Sissi and her Franz, you can admire the magnificent Art Nouveau architecture in the historical city centre, including buildings such as the Belvedere palace, Vienna City Hall, St Stephens Cathedral, the Karlskirche, and the Hofburg. You will find the splendid Schönbrunn Palace in the 13th district (Hietzing). The Riesenrad, the giant Ferris wheel in the Wiener Prater, beckons you for an exceptional group experience – the view from the top is uniquely stunning. For a memorable shopping experience, head to the Mariahilfer Straße and be sure to also explore all its branching side streets. Experiencing the charm of a traditional Viennese café and the delicious sweet pastries of Viennese confectioners is also a must!

Group trip to Dresden

Dresden is an enchanting destination for you and your fellow group travellers: historic landmarks such as the Frauenkirche, the Dresdner Zwinger, the Semper Opera House – one of the most beautiful opera houses of the whole world –, and the Golden Horseman in the Neustadt district are worthy of your undivided attention. But Dresden, which is affectionately known as Florence on the Elbe, has more to offer, such as numerous parks to catch your breath and linger for a bit. Our a&o hostel is very centrally located close to the Main station from which you can reach all corners of the capital of Saxony by foot. When staying at our a&o hostel, you’re just a few minutes’ walk away from the popular Prager Straße and Centrum Galerie shopping streets, the Altmarkt and the Altmarkt Galerie, as well as the Neues Kugelhaus.
