Ökoregion Kaindorf Pleasure Tour


This tour takes us around the Großharter natural pond. Along the way are regional producers who make the land the "Garden of Austria". A pleasure tour like something out of a picture book.

On the pleasure tour we cycle from one enjoyable highlight to the next. After the flat "gliding section" from Kaindorf to Sebersdorf, we come to Obermayerhofen Castle and then to Harter Teich, where we can stop for the first time. Further culinary delights are available in Auffen-Großhart at the Straußenwirt and on the way back at various Buschenschänken. The tour ends with a visit to the Höfler oil mill with a delicatessen and a guided tour of the mill.

Detailed information on how to get there can be found here.

Ideally, you start at the multi-purpose hall in Kaindorf, where there is sufficient free parking, e-charging stations and a large overview board to get an overview of the region. Through small villages, off the main road, you cycle via Ebersdorf to Sebersdorf. The route to Obermayerhofen Castle is relatively flat. To then get to Großhart, the first major climb awaits you - once you have made it, you will hopefully be welcomed by the grazing alpacas of the Radl family.

If you then cycle a little further, you will come to the idyllic Harter Teich with the Teichschenke. After a possible break there, continue on to the lookout tower, which offers a wonderful view of the region. A little further uphill, you may once again encounter animal guests, this time ostriches from the Lindenhof (ostrich farm). Afterwards, the route already heads back towards Kaindorf, before which the highest point of the tour (453 meters) is climbed, after which the course of the route is increasingly downhill, a Buschenschank can be visited along the way to fortify yourself.

Before returning to the starting point, the Höfler oil mill and its delicatessen await your visit. There you can not only take part in a guided tour of how pumpkin seed oil is extracted, but also stock up on regional delicacies. Afterwards, it is only a few pedal steps to the multi-purpose hall in Kaindorf.

At Harter Teich, get off your bike for a short ride around the pond and then stop at the cozy pond tavern.
