Austria as a cycling mecca

Why to take a cycle tour through Austria

Cycling is as much a part of Austria as schnitzel or apple strudel. Those travelling on two wheels will share the paths with sports fans, whether on a city bike, mountain bike or road bike. The feeling of sitting securely in the saddle and enjoying the landscape all around and the gentle breeze seduces you to make a habit of it. Cycle tours in Austria, with its nine federal states and varied nature are very popular among cyclists.

Different tours on different bikes

It could be a combined trip by bike and boat, a centre-based tour, route tour or round trip. Whatever you prefer, the Eurobike team has the most beautiful cycling routes in Austria in store for you. In addition, you can choose whether you like to cycle in a group, as a couple or alone as you explore the extensive cycle paths in the country.

Good to know: what to consider when cycling through Austria…

A cycle tour along the Danube through the picturesque vineyards of the Wachau or past imposing mountains in the Salzkammergut is definitely worth the effort! Austria and its culture, landscape and cuisine are internationally known and loved. Which cyclist doesn’t love seeing beautiful buildings and cultural highlights along the route? At every rest stop a delicious delicacy awaits you. From warm apricot dumplings (Marillenknödeln) with lots of bredcrumbs to the three fluffy mountains called Salzburger Nockerln, there’s a lot to choose from.

Every cyclist is well advised to pack clothes for every weather situation. As picturesque as the landscape in the Austrian cities may be, the weather is varied and changeable. Functional clothing and the well-tested ‘onion’ method are certainly appropriate for a cycle tour through Austria.

Despite the occasionally uncertain weather situations, Austria offers unique and beautiful cycle paths, away from traffic. A dip in cool water is usually not far away, cycle paths often travel past rivers and lakes.

The red-white-red country offers enjoyment, food and culture across the board. From Lake Neusiedl to Lake Constance, historic cities and varied natural landscapes make the cycling experience sweet.
