On the road on the Waldviertler Thayarunde

Cycling along former rail routes

200,- per person in a double room Request offer Offer availability

Spend a relaxed cycling time in the Waldviertel - the summer offer "Cycling on former railway tracks" is ideal for this! Whether families with children, people who enjoy cycling or groups of friends: Everyone likes to pedal along the Thayarunde cycle path! No wonder with all the historical Waldviertler natural and cultural jewels along the way ...

The Thayarunde is about 111 kilometres long, of which about 50 kilometres run on newly asphalted, former railway lines.. The course lovingly nestles up to the gentle terrain. The main reason for this lies in the past: Steam locomotives that were once on the road in the Waldviertel could not cope with steep gradients. This led the railway engineers to straighten the landscape. Valleys have been filled, hills have been cleared. A maximum gradient of three percent was the result.

What has remained to this day? A wonderfully flat, cross-border circular cycle path for all those who want to enjoy their time on two wheels to the full! It leads through the landscape sections between Waidhofen an der Thaya and Slavonice in the Czech Republic. As well as between Göpfritz an der Wild and Raabs an der Thaya. The route is also connected to existing top cycle routes and less frequented side roads.

Speaking of Raabs an der Thaya: This is where you will find your accommodation for a three-day cycling holiday with half board. When you check in at the JUFA Hotel Waldviertel, the ruins of Kollmitz and the local vitality bath await you in addition to the Thayarunde. The Hotel Liebnitzmühle includes a cycling and hiking map, a packed lunch, a massage voucher and the use of the hotel's own energy world SIRIUS. You can also try out e-biking for one day. Where you spend the two overnight stays does not matter ...
