Book a Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tour in advance via its website. Carts are available to pull children behind the bikes. We fit both of our children into one cart. Also, pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in Mirabell Gardens after the tour.
The bicycle tour is approximately 8 miles (13 km) of biking throughout the city and surrounding area. There is only one big hill and it is possible to walk the bike up the hill. People of all athletic abilities and ages can participate in the tour. Lastly, guides are paid after completion of the tour, so make sure to bring cash.
Bicycle tours begin at 9:30 a.m. each day and last approximately 3.5 hours. In June, July and August there is also a 4:30 p.m. tour.
Bicycle tours run from April through October only.
Our children shared a bicycle cart, so we only had to pay for one child. Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tours also offers several discounts. It offers a 2 euro discount if you travel with the guidebook “Rick Steves” (show it to the tour guide when you pay), a 10 percent discount if you have a Cycle Cities card and special discounts for tours of 10+ people.
