Hiking in the south of Vienna

The Laaer Berg in the south of the city is made for a hike with dogs. The Kurpark Oberlaa is worth a visit at any time of the year. After a short rest in the spa confectionery, the trail continues through the Laaer Forest until finally reaching the destination, the Bohemian Prater.

The park in the Vienna Woods

The starting point for your hike with your four-legged friend is the Manameierei in Hernals. From there you can walk directly into the forest or you can walk along Höhenstraße to Schwarzenbergallee. At the Manameierei you will not only find a parking place, if you arrive by car for the hike, but you can also enjoy culinary treats in the middle of nature. A bowl of fresh water is also available for your pet. The hiking trail also leads you to the Tiefauwiese and there is a very large dog zone. Your darling can romp around without a leash and will certainly make new friends quickly.

Pure nature in the Lobau

The most beautiful hiking trail in Vienna for you and your dog leads through the Lobau. Pure nature in the middle of the city of Vienna. Enjoy the peace and listen to the birds chirping. The Lobau is a nature reserve and it is not uncommon for a deer to suddenly cross your path. It is therefore very important that you keep your dog on a leash. In summer you should plan a break at the Mühlwasser. Dogs are allowed and your four-legged friend can cool off in the cool water.
