The perfect tour for runners who like to experience the center of Vienna with its main sights, hidden parks and metropolitan vibe, as well as the impressive Belvedere Palace. On this tour runners will see some of the highlights of the old imperial city. First of all the majestic Ring Road with its architectural masterpieces and magnificent buildings like the Parliament, the State Opera, the University and many more. The run also goes straight through the very center of Old Town Vienna with St. Stephen’s Cathedral as its beating heart.
But downtown Vienna is more than avenues and impressive buildings. It’s a capital rich on nature and flora directly in the city: Like the Vienna City Park with views to the river Vienna, and “Volksgarten” with its many rosebushes. Alongside the Danube Canal runners will feel Vienna’s urban vibe where street art, clubs and restaurants portray modern life in the Austrian capital.
On this running tour, we will also visit Belvedere Palace, which was a summer residence for the high nobility with its beautiful baroque garden hidden in the middle of Vienna. Take a glance at the “Karlskirche” and see the great museums of the Vienna hotspot “Museumsquartier”.
Since this is a private tour, you will define the pace and have plenty of time to take pictures, if you so wish. There will also be at least one drinking water station during the run (only during summer). We are visiting some parks that open at 6.30 in the morning and close at ~9 in the evening during summer, and at 7.30 am and 5.30 pm during the winter. It is possible to book this tour for hours outside the park opening times, but be aware that we will not be able to enter the parks, and the route will therefore be slightly altered. The tour will still be a great one we promise you.
