It takes us from Leoben via Sankt Peter Freienstein to Trofaiach, from there it continues to Vordernberg, over the Präbichl to Eisenerz and finally on to the Gesäuse region to Hieflau.
Cyclists who are interested in the culture and history of a region will learn interesting facts about iron production and its importance for the inhabitants of the adventure and sports region ERZBERG LEOBEN along the R38(Eisenstraßenradweg).
From the modernly developed city of Leoben, highlights for the cyclist are the art gallery with world-class cultural-historical exhibitions and the "Asia Spa" wellness oasis, we reach St. Peter Freienstein via Donawitz on a separate cycle path next to the very busy state road, then via Trofaiach to Vordernberg. For cyclists who would rather do a more leisurely pleasure tour, this tour ends here.
Sporty touring cyclists have a nice field of activity from now on: The Präbichl, with a gradient of up to 12%, requires stamina and experience: On the one hand on the ascent from Vordernberg to the top of the pass, on the other hand on the descent to Eisenerz (ATTENTION! This section of the R38 leads from Vordernberg directly along the federal road B115).
The Präbichl is one of the most important ski areas in Styria. On the descent, the Erzberg rises imposingly on the right hand side. From Eisenerz you soon reach the romantically situated Leopoldsteinersee and in a long valley basin to Hieflau.
The R 38 is signposted all the way to Vordernberg. There is almost continuously a separate bike path except Präbichlstraße to Hieflau.
