Vienna - Klosterneuburg

Vienna – a city with more than 1.8 million inhabitants – provides residents and visitors with green spaces that take up more than half of the metropolitan area. Almost 300 parks and the amazing 21 km long Danube Island offer a unique recreational area. The wine regions within the city limits are close and the neighboring villages such as Klosterneuburg are just about 20 km from the center of Vienna.

All these are good reasons to discover Vienna by bike. For those who are looking for a more intense bike experience, a tour to Klosterneuburg Monastery includes all the best of Vienna and its surroundings.
