Picturesque & Idyllic landscapes

On the border between Central Europe and the Balkans is the location of the country Hungary, which with an area of around 93 000 square kilometres is about twice the size of the federal state of Lower Saxony. The river Danube flows right through the nation, which has only been historically independent for around 100 years, on its course into the wide estuary delta on the shores of the Black Sea. It also divides the landscape between the Puszta and the slightly hilly Transnubia in the West, where you can see Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, situated in picturesque and idyllic scenery. However if you turn North from the Puszta there is a large mountain range near the Slovakian border, which rises to a height of 1000 metres with its not too steep peaks.

Cycle Holidays in Budpest


Start our Vienna – Budapest cycle holiday in the beautiful Austrian capital and cycle along the river Danube and the Slovakian-Hungarian border in a southeasterly direction to the Hungarian capital. Strengthened by the Viennese coffee culture and maybe also a piece of original Sachertorte, you first cross several national parks on the banks of Europe’s second longest river and stop in picturesque small towns such as the Hungarian town of 17 bridges Mosonmagyaróvár. In more than one place, you will be spoiled for choice between a sporting challenge such as a course through the breathtaking Tata Mountains or historical sights such as the Roman fort Kelemantia. Your end destination is the big city of Budapest.

Geographically the majority is situated in Austria and around 22% in Hungary. On this cycle rally however, you cycle around the entire Lake Neusiedl and thus immerse yourself also in the Hungarian flair.

Useful information about your Cycle Holiday in Hungary

The Climate in Hungary

Just as Hungary is culturally located at the crossroads between Central Europe and the Balkans, it is meteorologically located in a transition zone between the West, which is characterised by the Atlantic, and the Mediterranean climate of Southern and Eastern Europe. This special position means that precipitation decreases from West to East and the entire country can enjoy an above-average number of sunny days and pleasant temperatures from April through to October. The off-season is particularly recommended for your cycle holidays, since relatively few tourists travel to the country during this period, giving you a deep insight into everyday life in the villages far away from the big city.

Hungarian Cuisine

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Hungarian cuisine? For sure, the well-known ‘goulash’, which is popular beyond the borders. However, before today’s national dish made it into high society and the kitchen at the end of the 18th century, it was initially only eaten by farmers. But nowadays, Hungarian cuisine would be unimaginable without goulash with potatoes or dumplings or normal goulash soup. Just as the well-known Letscho, made from peppers, tomatoes, onions and optional bacon. What should not be missing in the kitchen is paprika powder. Since Hungary is well-known for its paprika cultivation, the locals like to spice things up a lot with this spice. Everything according to the motto in the spice lies the power.
