Rundumadum: Stages 8 and 9 Map

Stage 8 begins along the Liesing waterway, where the scenery is mostly urban but with much greenery in the landscaping. Buildings surround, but the path is generally quiet and uncrowded. You’ll pass beneath the arches of an aqueduct, then come to a leafy little park with playgrounds.

Description

The path then crosses the commercial center of Liesinger Platz and the rail station before returning to its course along the canal. Despite the urban setting, the route stays mostly on pedestrian paths removed from the street, and continues in this manner–in and out of small parks along the Liesing–until the end of Stage 8 at Alterlaa station on Anton-Baumgartner-Strasse.

If continuing on to Stage 9, you can skip the turn toward the U station and remain beside the Liesing. It goes first through an upscale residential area, then through a few small parks with lawns and ponds. The stage ends near Das Chadim, a classy restaurant and event venue on a quiet street next to Wienerberg park.
