Kamp-Thaya-March Cycle Route

The TOP Waldviertel cycle route along rivers

The Kamp-Thaya-March Cycle Route (German: Kamp-Thaya-March-Radweg), or KTM Cycle Route for short, is one of the most scenic long-distance cycling routes in Austria. Along its more than 400 kilometers, cycling fans can find everything their hearts’ desire, from relaxing cycling for pure pleasure to sections that push them to their limits. On a ride along the three rivers Kamp, Thaya and March, you can revel in unspoiled nature while exploring a number of cultural attractions.

Cycling in the Waldviertel is an experience in itself – the long-distance KTM Cycle Route is the best evidence of that. From Krems on the Danube, you first cycle on a leisurely leg along the Kamp. Then you encounter steep sections that pose a greater athletic challenge. Passing into and through the neighboring section of Lower Austria to the east known as the Weinviertel (wine quarter), you ride mostly downhill until finally arriving at gently rolling hills and the Danube beyond.

Make sure to stop from time to time on your tour to steep yourself in the nature, culture and cuisine of the Waldviertel. You will be rewarded, we promise!

Facts to know about the long-distance KTM Cycle Route

The stage running parallel to the Kamp and Thaya is considered the most scenic part of the KTM Cycle Route. You should plan five to nine days for covering its 445 kilometers. If you want to cycle just parts of the route, use the Reblaus Express to cover the other individual stages. With this service, your bicycle or e-bike is transported along free of charge. We also encourage you to ask about the special holiday package “KTM Cycling Holiday”.
