Cycling in the Waldviertel

Bicycle or e-bike tours

Relish the freedom of cycling and exploring the region at your own ideal pace. You are always close to nature’s many treasures when pedaling away in this northwest section of Lower Austria known as the Waldviertel (forest quarter).

On your bikes, get set, go! Traveling through this region - preferably by bicycle - takes you uphill and down, through meadows, forests and streams. One thing is certain: Breaking away on a bicycle or e-bike is liberating and exhilarating. The Waldviertel holds special bicycle rallies that combine athletic, scenic and culinary enjoyment in a unique way. 

A little tip: For carefree cycling fun, take advantage of our packing list for cyclists and our practical luggage transfer service.
