See the Vienna Opera House, built in Neo-Renaissance style, and Hofburg Palace, the spectacular former residence of Austrian royalty, including Marie Antoinette.
Stop briefly at Heroes’ Square (Heldenplatz), where Hitler delivered his ‘Anschluss’ speech in 1938, and then pedal to the Hundertwasserhaus, the city’s funky, colorful apartment building designed by Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Lastly, ride to the Prater, Vienna’s popular park that’s home to an amusement park and its famous giant Ferris wheel, the Risenrad. After snapping a few photos, pedal back to the starting point along a sidearm of the River Danube.
Loved this tour. We had only 2 days in Vienna and it was our 1st visit so time was not on our side. It was the 1st event we did on arrival and the intention was to cover some ground on the city and give us some bearing as to what was available near our hotel. The 4 of us enjoyed this immensely and were able to see a lot more than we bargained for. Highly recommend it to everyone.
Horst, WOW does this guy know his stuff! Great tour, comfortable pace and very informative. Once again Vienna Explorer out did themselves.
