Jogging & Walking
While running and Nordic Walking, you can experience Vienna up close. For example, on the Prater Hauptallee, on the Danube Island, in the Vienna Woods or in various parks. The nearby Prater and Danube Island recreational area offer flat, "fast" routes for all training requirements. The hiking paths in the Vienna Woods have interesting and challenging ascents and descents.
Running according to plan is something that you can do on 31 different running and Nordic Walking routes. The specifically signposted routes extend from the Prater to the old Danube. At the respective starting point and end point of each route, there are "Running Checkpoints" with details on the length, course and peculiarities of that respective route, as well as useful running tips.
