We don’t have to tell you that the metropolis of Vienna is a beautiful city. The question is rather what is the best way to travel around it order to make sure you see all its sights.
Vienna by bike
The capital puts considerable effort into promoting travel by bike and tourists really can think about exploring the city by bike.
Information is available from Vienna's cycle route network
By underground/overground train
Travel by underground or overground is the most popular way to get about as the network and timetables are extremely efficient. You can take your bike on all overground trains in Vienna for 1 euro and it’s free on the underground, the only restriction being the times at which this is possible.
