Winter, Covid-19 Pandemic. Which activities in Vienna are possible?

Walks, long walks in the Vienna Woods and in the big parks are always possible. We are lucky to have 40% green territory in Vienna. Outdoor activities strengthen your immune system and prevent you from depression.

Take tram 43 and get to Neuwaldegg and go up to Hameau or Sophienalpe.

Consider booking my Vienna Woods Private Hiking tour, when guided tours are possible again. You will learn more about the history of the hills and about the cultivation of wine.

If you are hungry for art, then visit one of the numerous museums open now:

Kunsthistorisches Museum, one of the most important museums in the world. You might already have seen the Kunstkammer, the Picture Gallery and the Antique Collection, but go again. The building itself is marvelous.
