PEDAL POWER is celebrating its
10th anniversary in 2006!
The company was founded to encourage tourists to discover Vienna by bike and to provide Vienna hotels and B&Bs with an additional service for their guests. In the process, creating another reason to visit Vienna. A way of combining culture with actively experiencing the city.

Vienna offers an almost ideal setting: over 1,000 km of bike paths and routes that provide easy and comfortable access to most of its main sights.

Bike riding is becoming increasingly popular and one reason is that it has no negative effects on the environment and another is its positive effect on the health of the biker.
Viennese hotels and B&Bs of every category are our partners and our company provides them with the possibility of increasing their range of services for their guests. Those that work together with PEDAL POWER receive folders, displays and posters in order to inform their guests. The only thing we require is that they provide a safe place to keep the bikes overnight.

We have come up with a few ideas in an effort to motivate tourists in Vienna to use bikes. Firstly, PEDAL POWER delivers and collects the bikes. For the first time, visitors in Vienna are being offered the possibility of starting their bike tours directly from where they are staying. Secondly, they are provided with high quality touring bikes. Our bikes are ideal to comfortably and safely experience Vienna. To help tourists easily find their way around the city, we have put together tour descriptions and a special map, with the routes drawn in, and the sights numbered. For example; Inner City Tour, Giant Ferris Wheel-Prater-Hundertwasser House Tour, Viennese Music Tour, Danube Island-Heurigen Tour, and Danube-Lobau-Nature Tour. These are provided free of charge and in 8 languages.

Of course, bikes can also be picked up directly from the PEDAL POWER office. Our location on the U1/U2 metro, near Prater (the largest park in Vienna) and the Danube bike paths make it a perfect place to start tours - and is especially safe for children.

We also offer guided bike tours. We meet in front of the Ferris Wheel and in 3 unforgettable hours you see more of Vienna up close than others see in 3 days

The Vienna City Segway Tour is a unique, innovative und exciting tour. Imagine, gliding without effort through the parks, on bike paths and at the same time receiving a complete orientation with historical and present day information. And don’t forget the great photography stops.
Our 3 hour tours are limited in size assuring that you get a great and unforgettable experience.
Our Day Tour provides an excellent orientation of Vienna, its history and its beauty. An experience that's hard to match.
