Fans of e-biking can also find an attractive network of cycling routes at Windpark Pretul (near Spital am Semmering). The region boasts 45 kilometres of e-bike and mountain bike trails, with 25 kilometres of trails running through federal forests. The best thing about it: The trails were constructed with great consideration for the environment, with some of them running through sensitive wildlife zones.
If you’re looking for a challenge, we recommend Seeberg cycle path, which runs from Kapfenberg in the Mürz valley via the Hochschwab region to the pilgrimage site of Mariazell. The route is fairly demanding, but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain world.
Our tip: If you’re looking for a more laid-back option, end your e-biking tour in Seewiesen. With a 12 per cent gradient, the subsequent section of the trail up Seebergsattel is quite steep and challenging.
