Cycling Tours For Sightseeing and Wine Tasting
Vienna tours by bike are the healthiest way to hop on and off during a city break. You won’t need a steely condition for a classic Vienna bike tour: When I lived in Vienna, I cycled everywhere from left to right of the centre, with my average muscle mass. On the way, I would pass dozens of landmarks. In and around the centre, Vienna is flat. And even if you consider exploring the hilly Vienna Woods, there are e-bikes at hand. Here are the best three guided bike tours in Vienna that I could find:
City Centre: Vienna City Bike Tour
Vienna tours by bike. This three-hour morning bike tour covers all of Vienna’s classic landmarks in the city and on Ringstrasse state boulevard. It is the most popular bike tour in Vienna. You will also cycle right into the city centre to Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral). My favourite sites there are the city squares like Am Hof and Judenplatz. Am Hof is often busy with seasonal markets. Judenplatz is a hidden square that hosts a vast Holocaust memorial, the Jewish Museum and a wonderful baroque town palace. The tour guides make frequent stops to provide stories and let you take photographs.

Vienna tours by bike. The afternoon bike tour covers all the classical sights along the Ringstrasse, while also venturing beyond the city centre to fabulous nearby attractions, such as the Vienna Prater, the Giant Ferris Wheel and the Danube Canal. I love the fact that the tour includes Hundertwasserhaus (photo), which is hard to reach by public transport. I have joined that tour and recommend it to all friends who’d like to add something different to their classic city break. Read my Vienna bike tour review to find out more.
Easy eBike: Vienna Bicycle Tour Through Vienna Woods
Vienna tours by bike. If I could I would take you on Markus’ bike tour along a really beautiful piece of the Vienna Danube. You’ll cycle along the Danube bike path, follow the small roads along vineyards and go through old lanes lined with wine cellars. If you want an easy ride, hire an e-bike. Markus is a passionate bike fan and controller in his day job. He has cunningly set up these tours to lure tourists out of the centre so they can enjoy his favourite bike tours together with him…
The area (close to Grinzing) is known for its fantastic wine and grape juice. What is more, the patch you will discover on this tour is off-the-beaten-path from busy downtown Grinzing. What I love about this experience is that it blends a green Vienna experience with wine at a local vintner. Read my review.

If you do the morning and afternoon bike tour you will have seen it all, saved money and will have offset those extra calories that come with Viennese cakes.

My tips: There are not many group bike tours in town. Therefore, Vienna tours by bike sell out quickly between June and September. Make sure you book well in advance.
Guided bike tours usually take place between April and October. If you visit the city outside this period, consider renting a bike and doing a self-guided tour.
