Smart.                     Simple.

Delivering the goods:
the Grätzlfahrrad
bike scheme.

We deliver Vienna.


  1. Grätzlfahrrad cargo bikes can be borrowed from 14 different locations.
  2. Cargo bikes are suitable for transporting up to 350 kg – depending on the model of the bike.
  3. The Viennese Citybike system for public bicycle-sharing has been available for inner-city routes for fifteen years, with over 120 hubs installed by now. Over a million trips are completed by rental bikes per year.

„I regularly use the Grätzlrad local bike scheme for larger shopping trips. I just check availability online, place my reservation and am off to get the cargo bike plus lock and key. There’s plenty of room in the bike’s cargo box. That’s how I get my shopping done and stay fit and on the move at the same time.“ Gerald Franz, mobility expert and cycling enthusiast

Bike lanes in Vienna: total length


Grätzlräder are cargo bikes that are owned by restaurants, shops and companies who lend them to the Viennese population free of charge. The project was part-financed from the City of Vienna cargo bike funding scheme. The Grätzlrad bikes let you take care of larger deliveries by bike rather than by car. The cargo bikes can be borrowed for up to 24 hours or over the weekend from fourteen different locations in Vienna. It’s free of charge: you just leave a deposit and an ID. There’s a range of models available, including bikes with seats and seat belts for children. The local cargo bikes are very popular in Vienna and are in steady demand. (in German)
