TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

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”.

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 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.

  • 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.
