3. Take A Bike Tour Or Segway Tour

Things to do in Vienna April: e-bike tourThings to do in Vienna June 2021. I keep saying it but exploring Vienna by bike is so great. You can easily explore most of Vienna’s landmarks by bike. The two best Vienna tours by bike cover classical Vienna (morning tour) and the area around the Danube Island including sights of the Vienna Ringstrasse boulevard. They are great for orientating yourself. Besides, you will stop frequently to hear stories of landmarks you pass.

Things to do in Vienna April: Segway tourAn e-bike tour can take you much further. Last year, I joined an e-bike group up Vienna’s rolling hills and vineyards. Read the full story about my electric Vienna bicycle tour.

I have also done two segway tours in Vienna and loved them both. The first was a classical sightseeing tour along the Ringstrasse boulevard and across the historic city centre.

The second was a fun tour through the lush woodlands close to the Vienna Prater amusement park. Read my tour reviews in Vienna tours by segway
