Touring the city by bike
Many miles of bicycle lanes make this a very feasible way of enjoying the city.
Now here's an interesting (not to mention healthy and ecological) alternative for experiencing Vienna, thanks to the fact that the bicycle has become such a part of local transportation and society. There are now more than 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) of bike lanes running the length and breadth of the city, as well as every conceivable manner of accessory and gadget for transporting kids, pets, and stuff of all kinds along with you. And naturally, there are also a plethora of tour and bicycle hire options. The most ubiqutirous is CityBike, with 80 rental stations throughout the city (they're especially popular in the area of the Prater).
