Wine and water with palaces, abbeys and health resorts

The Vienna Woods’ special flair and unique location close to Vienna make them attractive to cycle tourists.

For those who like to add a pinch of sporting activity to their enjoyment of wine, culture and nature, the Thermenregion in the Vienna Woods – more specifically, the imperial city of Baden – is the place to be.

The Vienna Woods have a long tradition of being a tourist hotspot. In the Biedermeier period in the nineteenth century, artists, aristocrats and townspeople were lured to the southern Viennese region by the warm water of the spas, the good wine, and the wild, romantic forests. Today, lots of nature, several landmarks, and the opportunity to take a break in a spa or in a tavern make the Vienna Woods a worthwhile destination for cyclists.
