Mountain biking in Vienna - From Campsite Wien West

Mountain biking in Vienna - From Campsite Wien West

If you would like to experience Vienna in a completely different way and not only want to use the excellent and well-marked network of cycle paths that we often used during our stay at the Campsite New Danube, we recommend the various mountain bike trails in the Vienna Woods, which are a real alternative for outdoor friends.

For adventure-seeking mountain bikers there is a variety of designated trails, which may be used by mountain bike only. The Camping Site Vienna West is ideal for the use of these trails.
