Spring has arrived! Finally. It’s sunny and warm, vitamin D reserves are being refueled and there’s a casual chill mode all around town.
If you have half a day or an entire evening at hand and are up for a little sporty adventure plus a rewarding picnic, I suggest renting a bike and cycling along the very unique Wienfluss river. It starts at the U4 underground station Hietzing. From there, you take your bike down into the Wienfluss canal and before you know it, it will feel like a complete escape from the city. On this seven-kilometer stretch, people are doing all kinds of leisure activities, whether it’s biking, inline skating, jogging, walking their dogs or dabbling their toes in the water next to them.
I suggest you continue biking for about four to five more kilometers all the way until you reach a narrow section with cobblestone pavement. From here on out, it starts to get unquestionably romantic and wild. Find a perfect spot, spread your picnic blanket, open a bottle of wine and enjoy your beautiful surroundings!
