TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

On this running tour, guests will experience a whole different, but equally exciting, side of Vienna - a city which is mostly known for its magnificent imperial architecture. Modern Architecture has, however, in recent years increasingly characterised Vienna and our run leads us to Danube Island and some of the newest constructions and architectural pearls of the city.

The running tour starts in a classy way with a great sight at the Giant Ferris Wheel in green Prater. After following Vienna’s most famous running route, we pass Ernst Happel Stadium and the Krieau Race Track, a really out of the ordinary sight directly followed by one of the most modern business and residential parts of town.

Continuing the running tour, we will reach the bank of the Danube as well as the Imperial Bridge that leads us to the main attraction - Danube Island. From the island runners have a beautiful view of Vienna’s skyline with the Vienna International Center and Donau City Tower making their unique mark on the skyline.

Continuing over the Danube once again we will find ourselves running between the buildings we just saw from a distance. As we make our way through Danube Park we will reach Donau City before heading back to “old” Vienna, where the impressive St. Francis of Assisi Church awaits us. Last but not least we will run through multicultural “Stuwerviertel” and finish in “Wurstelprater”. As one of the oldest amusement parks in the world Wurstelprater is quite the opposite of the green island we just a moment earlier found ourselves running.

Additional info: 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 currently partnering with Asics in Vienna, so when you book a running tour with us here in Vienna, you enjoy a 30% disocunt in the local Asics store in Vienna and on asics.com

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains or snows. We consider only a cancellation if we expect a heavy thunderstorm or it is very icy. If this happens we will let participants know in advance either via email or by phone. It is however, very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt…pack some wet weather gear and expect to run.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    Road running shoes are recommended and whatever you are comfortable running in. It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Vienna, so that you know what temperatures to expect.

    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen, so that sun burn is avoided. A hat and sunglasses can also be very handy if you happen to run on a really hot day.

    During the colder months we always recommend people to wear an extra layer in addition to what they would normally wear as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos.

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    Water is not included so we always recommend our guests to bring their own water on a warm day. On most tours there are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    Not at all! Our private tours are customised to suit your running pace and we take all the time you need.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately there is no storage for bags. Please, travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. The running guide will also take pictures along the route, and if there is a certain place you would like your picture taken, then simply ask your guide. The pictures will be sent to you after the tour by email.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer for our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route. Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment.

    HOW DO I BOOK AND PAY FOR A TOUR?
    All tours are booked and paid for through our online booking system on our website.

    HOW LONG DO THE TOURS TAKE?
    This depends on the length of the tour (how many kilometres / miles) you choose. This information is available in the tour description.

    IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT/RESTRICTION FOR THE TOURS?
    This is at your discretion. It is the responsibility of you as a participant to ensure that you are healthy and able to participate in the tour. Children under the age of 18 are the responsibility of their parents or guardians.

    IN WHAT LANGUAGES WILL THE TOUR BE?

We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
