All the Way Around Vienna on the Rundumadum

Discover hidden treasures of the city in this 120-kilometer circuit around Vienna, divided into 24 manageable stages.

Description

Vienna is known as a verdant city, and any pedestrian on its streets can see why. Garden parks punctuate the city blocks, while rolling hills of vineyards and forest define the horizon. Encircling the perimeter of Vienna is the Rundumadum, a trail which explores many of these green landscapes as well as the cityscapes and cultural delights in between.

Rundumadum, which means “all the way around,” is a circuit tour at the city outskirts, covering everything from the Vienna Woods to the wine country, to urban open spaces, and to Donau-Auen National Park. Most people do the stages of the Rundumadum as day trips, and perhaps complete them all over time, but you can certainly make a multi-day journey by linking several stages and staying at inns along the way. Whether traveling or residing in Vienna, you will undoubtedly find new destinations in the city by hiking the Rundumadum, in any order and direction of its 24 stages that you wish.
