I hired a bike from pedalpower.at and cycled out to another of our traditional haunts, the Kahlenberg (a hill just north of Vienna, with fantastic views over the city). Elly was sensible and took the U-bahn and then a bus.
Meanwhile, I failed to get up the MTB path, so cycled on to Klosterneuberg and ascended via a shallower but longer route – and cooked my arms in the sun.
Several drinks, including a verlängte Brauner (look it up!), later, we walked down to Klosterneuberg. Elly took public transport back to our hotel, while I went via the Donauinsel. Dinner was at another of our favourite haunts, the Dreivierteltakt. More Kartoffelsalat, Gurkensalat and Petersilkartoffeln. Austria does spuds!
- From Bösendorferstrasse, via Roßauerlände, Friedensbrücke, the Donaukanalweg past the Hundertwasser tower and the Donauradweg
- More Donauradweg
- More Donauradweg, nearing Klosterneuberg
- Trying the MTB route (lots of heavy breathing), going back down, on to Klosterneuberg, getting lost and swearing, nearly ending up on the motorway
- Decent, Donauradweg, Donauinsel and back to hotel
