There will be over 250 vendor stands where you can get delicious food and beer. You can also bring your own beer (if it’s in cans, not bottles), as well as your own food.
Read more on the Vienna tourism site (English) and the Danube Island Festival’s website (German). In the Vienna underground stations, you can also usually find a free newspaper that has a map of the event. You might want to pick up one of those maps, because the festival is several kilometers long.
Vienna now has it’s first urban walking community: WildUrb encourages urban people to walk and to discover urban space by foot, to create sustainable, funny and interesting perspectives of enjoying urban space.
When I first saw WildUrb I thought “wow, that exactly the spirit we stand for, that’s perfect for travellers to get into a new city, perfect for our guests to get the most authentic experience of travelling.”
Fair enough, now the wombats CITY HOSTELS are cooperating with WildUrb. Today, Doris from WildUrb shows you three fist class walking tours for Vienna. These show you interesting sights and sides of Vienna. Something other travellers are most likely to miss – curtains up for some sightseeing tips off the beaten track:
1. Secret Rivers
Walk the diversion channel of the river Wien in the west of the city. You will discover a curious world of motorways combined with natural habitats. And many examples of how nature can overcome concrete and take back its habitats. More info on WildUrb.com
2. Enjoyable Encounters
Discover the paths through the Hietzing mountains and valleys and meet people in different situations – pausing at the hot dog stand, enjoying the sights, tending graves, doing business and enjoying their time off. More info on WildUrb.com
3. Lively Worlds
Discover the 15th district of Vienna with this walking tour: It is a lively, multicultural part of town, a little New York in Vienna. Here you aren’t bothered by the usual conservative surroundings. More info on WildUrb.com
You do not pay a regular fee for the tour. You just tip the tour guide Ozzie afterwards as much as you want to spend for the quality you got. And you get a big pile of quality, as he is the most legendary tour guide in Munich: Born on the Bahamas, a Singer and Songwriter, an enthusiastic Munich expert, funny guy and really “Bavarian” (or as Bavarian you can image a guy from the Bahamas :)) He tells you all the interesting and funny background stories; he knows more than 850 years of Bavarian history, stories of the Oktoberfest, myths and legends of the city and stuff like that.
So the tour ends up being more than just a dull sightseeing tour – it’s funny, diversified and full of insights. And you meet lots of nice travellers from other countries, which makes a good crew to further explore the city, it’s beer gardens or the nightlife.

You want to get some spectacular views of the Austrian capital Vienna, see heaps of great historical sights and meet nice people for good drinks and food? No problem, our brand new wom-walk has it all for you – for free!
The walk starts every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 10am in winter (11am in summer) at our wombats CITY HOSTEL “The Naschmarkt”, where you meet up with other travellers taking part. Our certified city guide Charles takes you on a tour along famous Viennese sights like the Naschmarkt, the Opera or the St. Stephen’s Cathetral, giving you first class background information.
The walk also includes stops at the legendary “Würstlstände” (traditional food stalls) and ends at the “12 Apostel Keller” (“Twelve-apostle’s cellar”), a really old wine cellar in the heart of Vienna – so plenty of typical Austrian food and excellent wines are at your delight! The participation in the wom-walk is free; you just pay for your food and drinks.
All guests taking part so far were excited. The wom-walk proofed to be a great opportunity to get a first impression of the city and meet other travellers from around the world. A perfect start for a good stay, for your wombats experience!
