Route

Tour Profile / Level 1

All paths are paved or gravelled. The region is mostly flat with only a few uphill stretches on the Hungarian side. All bike routes can be custom and accordingly planned.

Day 1: Podersdorf

Individual arrival to Podersdorf. Check-in, bike- and travel documents handover.

Day 2 - 7: Routings/program suggestions

You can find our suggestions for the nicest bike tours in the surroundings below. It is up to you, which ones you choose and combine...or if you do something completely different. You can plan this homebase tour however it suites you best.

Tour 1: Lake Neusiedl bike path, approx. 48 km
Along the bike path you´ll find picturesque villages and quaint towns through slightly hilly landscapes until you arrive in Rust, "The Village of the Storks". Return back to Podersdorf by ferry and enjoy the cozy warm shafts of the sunlight.

Tour 2: Wine and Culture bike path, approx. 43 km
The wines from this region are very famous and delicious. During your ride through the extensive vineyards and rolling hills you will enjoy the wonderful lake-view. The castle of Halbturn is renowned and the most significant Baroque building of Burgenland. Maybe you´ll see the coloured bee-eaters which are breeding in sandy holes during the summer.

Tour 3: Lacken bike path, approx. 48 km
"Lacken" (little lakes) are defiantly worth visiting. Most of them are less than 50 cm deep and partly consist of salt water. These "Lacken" are the reason for the variety of Flora in this region. You will pass by swamps, reed-fields and vineyards, where the grapes are acclaimed worldwide for world-class wines. Today is also the perfect day for a sidetrip to the St. Martins Thermal bath – one of Austria’s most beautiful thermal baths.

Tour 4: Sopron/Hungary, approx. 72 km
The ferry takes you to the southern town of festival Mörbisch. You continue cycling on to the Hungarian side of the lake and reach Sopron, which is located near the border. Sopron is a city that is rich of historical heritage and which has many sights to see. A special recommendation near the Austrian-Hungarian border is the wine-grower house "Raspi" in the town of Fertöràkos. The menu card starts with fillets of lamb and presents lots of different, exquisite specialities.

Tour 5: Cherry-Blossom bike path, approx. 44 km
Start today’s journey by ferry to the other side of the lake. You will be guided alongside vineyards and extensive cherry orchards. Wonderful views over the Hungarian Lowlands will be a reward for you after a few short uphill stretches on today’s tour. Return by ferry back to Podersdorf.

Day of Rest
Take a day to relax and regenerate. Enjoy the lake with its numerous leisure facilities, such as sailing, surfing or swimming. Joining the hotel´s wellness area would be another option.

Day 8: Podersdorf

Either departure well recovered or if you still have some more time, take another day to visit the capital city of Austria, Vienna (reachable within 1 hour by bus). Please contact us for your needs; we stay at your disposal.
