Things to do in Vienna June 2020. During more than three months, the Museumsquartier changes into summer mood. You can try out your minigolf skills in the new interactive sculpture park ‘MQ Amore’. If you feel like at the Italian Riviera in the 1950s that is intentional. Simply put: That sculpture park with games and a kiosk for snacks has already become a local favourite.

2. Celebrate Beethoven In Concert: ‘Eroica’
Things to do in Vienna June 2020. On the same Long Night of the Churches, monumental tunes will sweep across Wiener Konzerthaus. Paying tribute to Beethoven’s 250th anniversary that year, the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra will sound out Beethoven’s passion for revolutionary Napoleon Bonaparte with his Symphony no. 3 ‘Eroica’. (When Beethoven learnt of Napoleon’s self promotion to Emperor he vigorously crossed out Bonaparte’s name on the music sheet.)
At the start of the concert, the overture to Egmont and the piano concerto no. 5 will softly raise your pulse.
Date: 5th June 2020 (concert is expected to be postponed to a later date, tbc)
Location: Wiener Konzerthaus

Things to do in Vienna April 2020. 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.
An 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.
4. Head Out For A Burgenland Wine Tour
Things to do in Vienna June 2020. While French Burgundy has long conquered the world stage for its wine Austrian Burgenland is catching up fast. Sharing the same geographical latitude, Burgenland vintners grow some of the best reds, whites, and roses in Austria. If you look for wine tasting in an authentic setting off the beaten tourist track, consider visiting Christof and Louise.
At barely an hour’s drive from Vienna, you will head for rolling vineyards, a vast steppe lake, and a fun tour through the couple’s wine rooms. Find out more in Burgenland Wine Tour.
