Cycling holiday in Austria - unique nature seen from two wheels is written by Jens Skovgaard Andersen.
A share of cycling holidays in Austria
Austria may not be the first country you think of if you are planning to go out and air your bike on summer vacation. As Danes, we are used to flat terrain and fine cycle paths, and it may well be another and more challenging project to have to climb over the Alps on two wheels.
But do not despair; Austria is much more than mountains. The country has a strip of cycle routes of a very high standard and in incredibly beautiful surroundings.
There are of course routes for the mountain-happy cyclists, and if you are into mountain biking and well with altitude meters on the route, then Austria is the pure Slaraffenland. There are also plenty of places where you can rent an electric bike that can help you get going quickly so that your cycling holiday in Austria does not end up being too tough.
