The most beautiful bike tours around Vienna: Cosy, sporty and adventurous!
Vienna –Tuttendörfl ferry
The tour north to the Tuttendörfl ferry is particularly suitable for a leisurely day trip. Once you get out of the city, the approx. 17 km route (one way) goes along the Danube until you finally reach the on-demand ferry, which you can use for a few euros.
The ferry runs between the Korneuburg and Klosterneuburg banks of the Danube – with no motor, and only with the help of a rope. In this way, the flow of the river is used for transport. This bike tour including a ferry ride is not only really beautiful, but also perfect for seeing the Danube from a different perspective.
Prater –Friedhof der Namenlosen (Cemetery of the Nameless) – Danube Island
Speaking of getting out of town: A bike tour on Danube Island is particularly quick and easy. If you want to explore the whole of Danube Island, you can pedal up to 42 km here (Danube Island measures 21 km). Of course, you can shorten the route at any time and just turn around earlier. So there is a suitable workload for everyone.
As a specific suggestion, we have a 27.2 km long tour up our sleeve that will take you across the Prater to Alberner Hafen to the Friedhof der Namenlosen (known from the film “Before Sunrise”). The tour then runs back over the Danube to the starting point at the Praterstern.
Kettenbrückengasse – Aqueduct – Wienerwaldsee – Wienflussweg
To the west, towards Breitenfurt, the Vienna Woods attracts all nature and sports enthusiasts. From the Kettenbrückengasse there is a nice round trip with a total of 47.9 km. Past the Vienna aqueduct, alpacas(!) and through the Wiental, this bike tour finally takes you over the Wienflussweg back to the city.
Kagran – Klosterneuburg Monastery – Tulln
This medium-difficulty bike tour leads from Kagran to Tulln. The tour covers a total of 78.6 km there and back, so you should definitely be in good physical condition. There is a lot on offer here along the Canal Cycle Path (Anton-Schmid-Promenade), past Klosterneuburg Abbey and finally back to Vienna via Danube Island.
Danube Cycle Path –Vienna – Budapest
For adventure seekers and fans of longer bike tours, there is the 300 km long tour along the Danube Cycle Path to Budapest. You cycle through the former heartland of the Danube monarchy and enjoy tranquillity and idyll.
However, the Danube cycle path in Slovakia and Hungary is not as well developed and signposted as in Austria or Germany. So this section requires a little more planning! However, the landscape along the Danube Cycle Path is definitely worth the effort preparing for this longer bike tour.
