Hot Spot – Berggasse

Berggasse

In Berggasse, a cycle way feeding into Währinger Strasse (hence going against the direction of car traffic) was built, while bikes move into the direction of Liechtensteinstrasse together with cars in a mixedtraffic, 20-mph (Tempo 30) zone. To create this cycle way, it was necessary to replace the original angle parking slots with parallel ones. With a 10% inclination, this 250 m long, separate cycle way is the steepest of its kind in Vienna yet used by many cyclists, mostly students travelling between various university facilities in the 1st and 9th municipal districts.
