On top of the classical sights the tour will get you to picturesque places of the Vienna woods wich are hardly reachable for common visitors.
It just takes 15 minutes cycling to leave the international citry behind and reach the picturesque vineyards and beautiful landscapes. The landmark mountains Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg (the scene of the Battle of Vienna during the second siege of the Turks in 1683) and Hermannskogel have since centuries been popular destinations not only of emperors but of all Viennese.
Our tours start directly at the metro terminal and lead through idyllic forest tracks. During the approx. 2 hours tour we can always take small breaks during which you can enjoy the beautiful view and learn about some historic events of the area.
The highlight at the end of our tours is a visit of the traditional Viennese "Heurigen", wine tavern with a rustic charm and a breathtaking view over Vienna - after the "sporting" event you can relax and enjoy the charm of the ambience.
The Bike Experience Tours will be accompanied by experienced guides, speaking German and English.
