Rundumadum: Stage 7 - Route 1 Map

This stage begins at the main Lainzer gate, going first along a wide, flat path then taking a slight incline through a patchwork of forest and fields. Keep an eye out for resident wildlife on this stretch. After turning downhill, the path comes again to the wall and exits the preserve at Gütenbach gate. From there it goes to the historic recreation area at Poplar Pond, which is a pleasant picnic spot with playgrounds nearby. The path then continues through a deeply wooded graben before coming into town at In der Klausen street.

Description

There you’ll find a guesthouse and a few other restaurants, in case you’re ready for refreshment. Next, the route follows Promenadenweg alongside a creek flowing into the city. As you continue, buildings become more numerous but greenery remains abundant near the waterway. This stage ends at the Tram 60 station Breitenfurter Straße / Liesingbrücke.

Note that dogs are not allowed inside Lainzer Tiergarten, and the preserve may close in winter. To detour, take Stage 7 Route 2 through Maurer Wald.
