Mountain Biking in Lower Austria

Lower Austria's offer for cycling enthusiasts is as diverse as the nature of the area.

Through extensive forests or rugged granite landscapes, over rocky mountain paths and gentle hills: Bike parks, trail centres and various different routes in six regions ensure unadulterated mountain biking pleasures for all ages and skill levels.

An inexplicable force pulls you out of the city. And all of a sudden you’re in the midst of nature. Helmet and cycling shorts ready. Tingling fingers. Everything quietens down in your head. The fresh air blows around your ears and you can already smell the next bacon filled snack. Gravel and soil splatter below the wheels. A broad grin begins to cover your face.

Do you love making holiday memories with your bike, discovering the nature along the flowing trails or improving your bike skills on challenging single trails? Lower Austria's mountain biking territory has the right network of routes for everyone.

Free time = biking pleasure.

The bike parks and trail centres are the best choice for mountain bike beginners, and technically demanding single trails with roots, rocks and specially created corners are perfect ambitious mountain bikers. The associated signs provide information on the type of route and difficulty or condition – for example trekking routes have more tarmacked parts than a mountain bike route. Biker Fair Play Rules are particularly important when it comes to shared trails, which are used with hikers. But wherever you might find yourself, you will always be able to find a suitable opportunity to enjoy delicacies of Lower Austria at high altitudes or “comb through” various bicycle-friendly overnight accommodation.
