Pleasure cycling in Lower Austria

Whatever type of bike you like and whatever speed you need, one thing is for sure - cycling is good for body, mind and spirit.

Paradise for pleasure cyclists: The magnificent cultural heritage of Austria’s historical heartland, with a variety of landscapes unequalled in Central Europe, is interconnected by a dense network of cycling paths.

The ten top cycling routes offer unrivalled cycling enjoyment, with their exemplary signposting, dense rail network, numerous inns and wine taverns, and special service stations, together ensuring an ideal cycle trip or cycling holiday. Mountain bike fans will also enjoy the perfect conditions, with easier routes for beginners and downhill slopes for more experienced cyclists, all leading through the most beautiful parts of the region - along the Danube, through the forests of the Waldviertel, through the hilly Mostviertel or through the vineyards of the Weinviertel.

You should always have the cycling map of Lower Austria with you on your cycling trip.

Tip: The Lower Austria app can also be used optimally as a cycling guide. It shows you the respective tour with details of length, metres in altitude, duration, degree of difficulty and of course your own position on a topographical map.
