Vienna is an ideal-typical European city similar to Barcelona, London, Milan, Paris or Rome, but unlike the others it is very compact and easy to negotiate. Vienna is referred to by many as a unique onion, with each of the urban layers surrounding the oldest historic center being equally important to the overall flavor of the city. The Austrian capital therefore embraces all the traditions of a European city, from Roman foundations through to Gothic, Baroque and Historicism. Tourists are eager to visit Vienna because of the city’s exciting combination of the royal-imperial flair of the past with the latest trends, the responsible cultivation of a precious heritage and charming traditions.
A natural paradise including forests, grassland, parks and gardens cover some 20,000 hectares or about half of the city, and then there is the Danube and other stretches of water on top of that. The Vienna Woods are not only the green lung of the city, but provide visitors with footpaths and mountain-bike trails of all distances. Vienna is fully geared to pedal power with almost 1,000 kilometers of urban cycle paths. A number of places in the city such as the vast (6,000,000sqm) Prater park, a former imperial hunting ground in the rambling Danube wetlands, are best explored by bike anyway. The Danube Island is another vast area for outdoor pursuits. It has numerous bathing areas, cycle paths, playgrounds and sports facilities. And on the still waters of the New Danube you can go for a dip or a swim, or get into a rowing boat, sailboat or even onto water-skis.
