Trans Nationalpark

Open
2 National Parks - 2 Federal Provinces

Did you know that there are only 6 national parks in Austria? ... and TRANS NATIONALPARK connects two of them! Namely the Kalkalpen National Park in Upper Austria and the Gesäuse National Park in Styria. And you can do it by bike - no matter whether you are a beginner or advanced, by mountain bike or e-bike.

In any case, the TRANS NATIONALPARK offers a unique nature experience with breathtaking views.

 

But please note that mountain biking is only allowed in the two national parks from 15 April to 31 October. Let's allow the wild animals their winter rest!

Mountain biking through 2 national parks

The TRANS NATIONALPARK leads from Steyr to Johnsbach, from the OÖ. Enns- and Steyrtal through the National Park OÖ. Kalkalpen to the Pyhrn-Priel holiday region and on to the Gesäuse National Park in Styria; across the hilly country of the Pre-Alps. The extraordinary landscapes of the national parks and their surroundings promise unique experiences: on lonely forest roads, the MTB tour leads past bizarre rock worlds to breathtaking views and to rustic alpine huts, where regional delicacies await as a reward. Local guides, who reveal many unknowns on guided tours, are ready and waiting and know where the next cosy alpine pasture is for a break.

Mountain biking On forest roads

"Beware! Even if the forest roads often seem lonely, please always drive with foresight so that you can stop at any time! Work is being done on forest roads, so roadblocks must be maintained in your own interest."
