Cycling holiday in Austria - unique nature seen from two wheels

Austria is flatter than you might think - at least if you look for the right bike routes.

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.

About the travel writer

Jens Skovgaard Andersen, editor

Jens is a happy travel nerd who has traveled in over 60 countries from Kyrgyzstan and China to Australia and Albania. Jens is educated in China Studies, has lived in China for 1½ years and is a member of the Travel Club. He has extensive experience with the travel world as a tour guide, lecturer, advisor, author and photographer. And of course most important of all: As a traveler. Jens often goes to places where it is also possible to watch a good football match in the company of other incarnated fans and has a special fondness for Boldklubben FREM, where he sits on the board. For most people it is obvious to look up to Jens (he is barely two meters tall), and then he is a 14-time champion in the TV quiz Jeopardy and still single, so if you can not find him out in the world or on a football stadium, you can probably find him out touring in the Copenhagen quiz environment.
