Ecofriendly walks in the city of Vienna

New app is launched to help people in Vienna during lockdowns

In times of lockdown, city walks are one of the few activities that can be done outside of one's home. The City of Vienna has launched a new app that provides so-called 'energy tours' of the city.

The free Energy! Ahead app should allow seeing city pathways from a fresh perspective. After downloading it, users can find tours focusing on creative energy solutions.

Available for Android and iOS

The Energy! Ahead app offers tours designer around various themes:

  • "Historic Vienna redeveloped": City palaces and Wilhelminian style houses shape the historical cityscape of Vienna. The reconstruction of such structures necessitates a sure instinct as well as the most advanced technological know-how. This tour illustrates exceptional examples of historical heritage conservation.
  • "Seestadt Tour": The Seestadt is a major hub of creativity - one excellent energy project after another are sprouting up here.
  • "Energy meets architecture": The tour is visually appealing. These showcase projects impress not only with their excellent architecture but also with their creative energy solutions. The relationship between energy and architecture is expertly integrated.
  • "U2 Tour”: Numerous energy showcase ventures have appeared along the U2's metro line in Vienna in recent years. These items are within walking distance from the subway and can be reached on foot from the stations.
  • "Energy miracle in the magistrate": The City of Vienna's magistrate establishes and maintains kindergartens, schools, government offices, fire stations, baths, and other services. Building management relies heavily on energy-efficient and environmentally friendly activities.

The Energy! Ahead app contains numerous showcase projects and new highlights are constantly being added.

The “Nearby” feature also displays information about flagship projects in the areas surrounding the venues. During strolls, you can always search to see if there are any interesting structures nearby.

The Danube Cycle Course, for example, includes a small hydropower plant in Nussdorf. It is housed in a designated Art Nouveau structure and produces renewable electricity for thousands of households.
