Danube bike path to center of Vienna

You will get around fast on a bicycle and yet be slow enough to have time to enjoy Vienna’s many wonderful sights.

The famous bicycle path along the Danube leads from Germany through Austria to Hungary. Many bicyclists arrive in Vienna via this route, either for a stopover or as their final destination. To reach the center from the Danube Bicycle Path in the northern part of the city, in Nussdorf, turn onto the Danube Canal Bicycle Path and proceed to Urania-Sternwarte.

At Urania, you join the Sightseeing Bicycle Path Ringstrasse ("Ring-Rund-Radweg") that encircles Vienna's old city. You can see famous attractions along the way, such as the Opera, Parliament and Burgtheater. Several important bicycle paths branch off the Ring-Rund-Radweg, like the one from Schwarzenbergplatz to the Central Station via Argentinierstrasse; and at Bellariastrasse to Westbahnhof (Western Railway Station).

If you want to return to the Danube Bicycle Path from Urania, take the Aspern Bridge, Praterstrasse and Prater Hauptallee, where you can find the ramp to the Prater Bridge (before you reach the bridge, to your left): Cross the bridge and follow Hubertusdamm downstream and continue to the Lobau, a river forest with meadows at the south-eastern edge of Vienna. From here, the Danube Bicycle Path is signposted until Hainburg as you continue to travel through the wetland forest, which is part of one of Europe's last primeval forests. This section of the Danube Bicycle Path is also ideal for a shorter excursion.
