Wine Tasting Bike Tour departing Vienna

Wine Tasting Bike Tour departing Vienna

Leave Vienna behind for a full day in the countryside. Imagine a glorious Austrian day of sipping, swirling and slurping through one of the country’s best winemaking regions, the Wachau Valley. Does it sound wonderful? Make it a reality on this guided bike tour from Vienna!

Renowned for its quality wines, stunning villages and breathtaking scenery, the Wachau Valley is the perfect place to enjoy a day away from the city. You’ll arrive in the Wachau Valley from Vienna by train, and then hop on your bike (rental included) to explore with your guide. Enjoy the freedom and fresh air of biking in the scenic countryside, with magnificent vineyards on both sides of the Danube River.

Sample Austrian wines at small, family-run wineries and pedal along the river. Visit six stunning villages, all of which offer lots of photo opportunities, before spending some free time swimming in the Danube or playing beach volleyball.

Learn why Austrian wine and schnapps are some of the best in the world and meander through the magnificent fortress ruins of Dürnstein (King Richard the Lionheart's prison).

When your time in the valley is up, take the train back to Vienna.

My husband and I agreed it was one of the highlights of our trek thru Eastern Europe! Wish we would have had more time so we could stop off in some of the cute villages we passed thru but we were a big group! The scenery was like something out of a movie set or a fairy tale. The Wachau Valley Is absolutely stunning! Would highly recommend this tour!

This tour is great - do it! It was one of the highlights of my 2 weeks in Europe. I spent a lot of time in European cities and this was a great way to get out of the city and explore some beautiful countryside. A 9-hour tour sounds very long, but you won't be biking for 9 hours. It's not too intense in terms of the biking you bike in fairly short increments, and it's mostly flat and it's not very intense or snobby in terms of the wine tasting. FYI, the Wachau Valley is mostly dry white wines, but some people on our tour weren't really into wine and they still enjoyed biking and wandering the small towns we visited including Durnstein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our guide Ian was from New Zealand it's nice to have a native English speaker you can ask questions but has lived in Austria a few months and taught us a lot about authentic Austrian wine culture and heurigens. We also had a fun, social group of people. Bikes are in good condition and helmets are provided/required. You're mostly on bike paths so it's not dangerous city riding you ride a train outside of Vienna before getting on a bike.

It was just fabulous! After the busyness of the city, it was so lovely to bicycle around the country side where there is so much history and beauty! Our guide was friendly and courteous. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the region and the wines and you could feel that he truly love Austria. He made everyone feel at ease and we all had a wonderful time....no matter where you were from. I love Austrian wines too...very fresh and crisp! Go for it!

Awesome tour, would highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to see some more of Austria, and learn a bunch about wine. The pace is nice and easy, the vineyards are beautiful and the wine is delicious. Our guide, Ian, was great - it was an really enjoyable day.

Excellent. We went in May 2015. Colder, kinda dreary day. Biking along the danube and in the wachau valley was surreal. Knowledgeable tour guide. made it very fun for us. This should be a priority if you visit vienna

Our guide Vera was superb! A great mix of professional and fun. We visited three wineries and even had time for ice cream. Highly recommend this tour- but be ready to spend the entire day.
