Enns Cycle Path
Medieval town on the river
Enns lays claim to being the oldest town in Austria, and has a town charter from 1212 to show for it. The most picturesque approach to the Upper Austrian town is via the Enns cycle path. While it leads steadily downhill towards the Danube, cyclists also face a number of ascents before reaching the medieval fortifications of Enns. There are also connections to other routes, such as the Mur Cycle Path and the famous Danube Cycle Path.
Mur Cycle Path
Four countries, one river
The Mur River originates in the Austrian Lungau region and passes through three more countries – Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary – before merging with the River Drau. In Styria, the cycle path along the Mur is very popular. R2 leads through the city of Graz and connects to many other fantastic cycle routes. Follow Zirbenland cycle path R26 to Drau cycle path, the Rastland cycle path R15 to Enns cycle path, or the Mürztal cycle path R5 to Vienna.

Cycling between hot springs
Not only is Styria famous for its many hot springs and thermal baths, the spa towns are well connected by bike routes and offer relaxation and regeneration after a long day's cycling. For example, you can take the wonderful “Weinland Steiermark Radtour” from Loipersdorf spa to Bad Radkersburg. The "Thermenrundweg" explores the natural area around the Rogner Bad Blumau Therme, a uniquely coloful spa designed by legendary architect Hundertwasser.
