Tour recommendation for leisure cyclists

A journey of delights: The e-bike leisure tour through East Styria is a perfect mixture of culture, cuisine and nature. The circular route takes you to impressive sights such as the historic Old Town of Hartberg or Herberstein with its Tierwelt Herberstein zoo.

At Almenland Stollenkäse, you can see cheese experts at work and taste local cheeses during maturation. If you would like to find out how pumpkin seeds are turned into pumpkin seed oil, which is also called the “green gold of Styria”, visit Steirerkraft Kernothek. For a digestif, we recommend a schnapps at Edelbrennerei Graf.

In five full-day stages, you cover a total of 159 kilometres and an altitude difference of 2,220 metres during this tour.

Mürz valley: the rising e-bike region

Mürz valley in Upper Styria boasts a great variety of offers for e-bikers. The heart of the e-biking region is the section of the Mürz valley cycle path between Oberland Nature Park, the Waldheimat region and the mixed fruit region around Kindberg and Stanz. Surrounded by the Schneealpe, Rax and Hohe Veitsch mountains and the Fischbach Alps, there are plenty of charming tours taking you from the Mürz valley up to the region's alpine pastures with their many mountain huts serving culinary delights.

For a more leisurely tour, simply cycle along the Mürz river. The good news: You can find plenty of e-bike charging stations by bike energy all along Styria’s widespread network of cycling trails. There are about 30 stations where you can recharge your bike’s batteries – and your own, by enjoying some local delicacies during a well-earned break.

Cycling for explorers & pleasure-seekers

The “e” in e-bike stands for electric – but it might as well stand for easy and effortless. Because that’s exactly what the advantages of electric bikes come down to:

  • effortless: If you get tired, your e-bike’s motor will give you the push you need.
  • relaxing: Take the time to savour the surrounding nature, without any stress or exertion.
  • motivating: With your e-bike you can also master distances or ascents that would normally be too challenging for you and your “normal” bike.

Especially in the Spa Country Styria, those aspects are achievable. Because there, one follows the 4 elements water, fire, earth and air.

Safe e-biking
