Chilled Cross Country Ski Routes Near Vienna

A variety of cross country ski trips within easy reach of Vienna, for those days when you need some fresh air and a break from the city.

Description

Vienna essentially marks the end of the Alps because it's the first major city reached after those famous mountains give way to gentle hills and rolling plains. As such, the Austrian capital isn't really considered an Alpine city but there are a surprising amount of outdoor adventures close to it, from bike rides to snowshoe routes and cross country ski tracks.

Winter is fairly brief in the Wiener Hausberge, also known as the Viennese Alps, but while it's there we strongly recommend that you check out these trips. Vienna is one of the greatest and most beautiful cities on Earth but everybody needs some cold, fresh air on their face from time to time and this guidebook is for those days.

As well as this great selection fo cross country trips, the Viennese Alps are also home to some wonderful snow shoeing adventures, the best of which can be found here -
