Meet your expert guide in central Vienna and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the famous Prater amusement park. After a short stroll through the park, home to the city’s iconic giant ferris wheel, collect your downhill cross scooter — a hi-tech, non-motorized 2-wheeler.
Don your supplied helmet and enjoy a practice ride through the park and campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business, famous for its innovative and colorful buildings.
Once you’re confident, it’s time to up the pace with a downhill ride. Head for Kahlenberg, a wooded hill to the north of the city, and after an opportunity to see the beautiful Klosterneuburg Monastery and admire the panoramic city views, take an exhilarating ride down the roads coiled around the slopes.
Take to your scooter and be prepared to reach speeds of up to 39 miles per hour (64kph), slowing to negotiate the sharp bends on the way down— it’s a serious thrill.
Continue with two other downhill rides, including one in the Exelberg area, where the hillsides are coated in leafy urban vineyards. Take to your scooter and zoom down the steep, snaking roads, cruising through the gorgeous scenery.
Later, return to central Vienna where your experience ends with a drop-off at the start point or the subway station nearest to it.
