Explore the woods and vineyards surrounding Vienna by electric mountain bike on a 3-hour adventure tour. Bike through the lovely vineyards of the Vienna Woods, enjoy panoramic views of Vienna’s monuments, and stop at a rustic tavern for a welcome drink.
What to Expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Vienna city center, and join a group of enthusiastic mountain bikers with local roots to experience the "Vienna of the Viennese."
Meet your guide at the Heiligenstadt metro station, just 10 minutes from the city center. After a short briefing on how to operate the bikes, cycle a picturesque 15-20 kilometer route through the Wienerwald (Vienna Woods). Each bike is equipped with wide grip tires for mountain terrain and a motor that takes most of the work out of pedaling.
Cycle past vineyards with views of the Danube River, as your guide explains the history of the area, especially the Kahlenberg Mountain. Learn about Kahlenberg's role in the Battle of Vienna in 1683 as you ride to the top for panoramic views. Continue through the “green lung” of the Vienna Woods, and discover where the locals go to escape the city center.
Stop at a traditional Heurigen (a Viennese wine tavern of rustic charm), and enjoy a welcome drink and refreshments in the heart of the vineyards. You are free to stay at the tavern and make your own way back to Vienna, or go with your guide to Heiligenstadt station for the end of the tour services.
