Allow yourself some time to enjoy the specialities of the region
The bicycle trail called Eurovelo 9 connects the Baltic Sea with the Adriatic Sea. 180 km (112 mi) of it pass through Lower Austria. The first part from the Czech border to Stammersdorf (which is a district of Vienna) is modest; if you are up to it you can cover the 84 km (52 mi) in one day – or you can extend it into a relaxing two-day trip, enjoying the hilly Weinviertel region and its wine taverns. Actually this is highly recommended, for you will have time to relax in the Kellergassen (cellar-lined roads) of Poysdorf, visit the Liechtenstein castle at Wilfersdorf and enjoy the Museum of Prehistory in Asparn on the Zaya River.
After leaving Vienna you reach the thermal springs region where you cycle on more or less flat paths along the vineyards of southern Lower Austria. Take your time to sample the local wine along with some quaint snacks in one of the countless Heurigen (wine taverns) of this sunny region. On the last section, shortly after Wiener Neustadt, the route becomes more demanding as you have to overcome the Wechsel, the pass separating Lower Austria from Styria.
