Vienna will be the centre of attention for motorbike enthusiasts from 10 to 13 May, when the Vienna Harley Days come to the city with live rock, country and blues music. The highlight will be a large motorcycle parade on Vienna’s Ringstrasse, where hundreds of bikers will present their vehicles in an imperial setting.
The Vienna Harley Days start on 11 May with the Capital Ride, where bikers join a rally from all parts of Austria to Vienna, where they ride together to the Danube Island. This year's giant festival tent city of the Vienna Harley Days will be erected near the Reichsbrücke.
At this tent city, fans can stock up on biker necessities. The latest Harley models from the USA will stand ready for test rides, numerous live shows with motorbike acrobatics have been prepared to thrill the crowd, and the sales stands will offer clothing and accessories.
Food will be available for purchase while Rock, Country and Blues bands provide the right ambience on the large open-air stage. The highlight of the Vienna Harley Days is the large motorcycle parade along Vienna's Ringstrasse - an imposing imperial boulevard that will be closed to regular traffic especially for this event.
