On a bike through the Bucklige Welt

Lower Austria's Bucklige Welt has everything your mountain biking heart desires and so much more.

In combination with the many possibilities to expend your energy on a mountain bike, the Bucklige Welt also has culinary delicacies and other activities to offer.

Krumbach is a paradise of the Lower Austrian mountain bike world - it was not without reason that the Bike the Bugles mountain bike marathon takes place here. An 18 kilometre long part of the competition route can be cycled from Krumbach over the Kühlriegl to Ransdorf, Purgstall and Tiefenbach and back. Another tip is the Hutwisch Strecke – at eight kilometres in length, an altitude of 300 metres is achieved on this circular tour above the hilly landscape of the Bucklige Welt. The fact that Krumbach is so popular among mountain bikers is also due to Krumbacherhof-Chef Andres Ottner. He is a passionate chef, beer brewer and mountain biker as well, who is also hired as a guide for various tours and has his own bike shop including rental in his excellent inn. So it is not surprising that the “Wir(te) radeln!”-Tour [Innkeepers ride] starts at the Krumbacherhof. During the 240 kilometre long ride in three full day stages, seven of the best innkeepers that serve special dishes for cyclists are visited across Lower Austria. Luggage is transported in a sidecar.

Brilliant ice cream

Friends of ice-cold ice creams should be sure not to miss out on the headquarters of the Eis-Greissler ice cream store in Krumbach – master ice cream maker Georg Blochberger serves his natural creations through out Austria and you will always witness sweaty queues standing outside on the hottest summer days. In addition to the Greissler factory tour, there is an impressive adventure park for adults and children at the ice cream headquarters.

Furthermore, the first class gourmet restaurant Triad in Bad Schönau offers an enjoyable change to the sporting activities. Master chef Uwe Machreich impresses you with classic dishes such as veal sausages and fried chicken or a three to seven course surprise menu. Furthermore, you can also practice your golf swing on the driving range. Other attractive leisure activities with the Lower Austria card are offered by the Burgbad Kirchschlag, the Museumsdorf Krumbach and the wind turbine with a viewing platform.
