Region

The region by bicycle

Exploring the region by bicycle is not only environmentally friendly, it’s also healthy! Eastern Austria and western Slovakia offer both flat, asphalted stretches as well as challenging mountain bike routes, providing enjoyment for families and athletes alike. The large variety of cycle routes knows literally no borders!

Today the border between Slovakia and Austria is a wonderful place for active leisure in the outdoors. However, this wasn’t always the case. Several remaining bunkers provide a reminder of the times of the Iron Curtain. These have been preserved and now serve as memorials.

The inauguration of the cycle bridge near Schlosshof and Devínska Nová Ves simultaneously marked the opening of various cross-border bike trails. The cooperations Behind the Bridge  and Perimost of Lower Austria and Bratislava produced corresponding maps.

Take your bike with you on the train – Hohenau, Angern or Devínska Nová Ves are some of the ideal starting points for bike trips to experience the lovely wetlands along the Morava River. Prefer climbs to flatlands? Then take the train from Bratislava or Devínska Nová Ves to the Lesser Carpathian mountains.
