The EuroVelo 9 at a glance

Starting in the small town of Blansko, it runs through the South Moravian karst to Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, made famous by the UNESCO World Heritage Site Villa Tugendhat. It heads through the Pálava mountains and Břeclav to Austria. In Lower Austria, the wine roads typical of the wine district take us into the art of Austrian wine culture that is lived from the Czech-Lower Austria border to the Styrian-Slovenian border. Through Vienna the journey continues into eastern Styria, which is called the 'Garden of Austria' because of the variety and quality of its culinary products. The route leads through the thermal springs country and Vulkanland, finally reaching Maribor, the second largest city in Slovenia.

  • Route: From the Czech Republic via Austria to Slovenia - the individual stages can be designed and combined as you wish. In any case, get yourself some good maps (such as the bikeline guide "EuroVelo 9", published by the Esterbauer publishing house), because there are so many great detour routes and side trips for discovering the hinterland too.
  • Recommended schedule and route planning: You should take about 10-12 days, including some spare time for sightseeing. The tourism associations and cycling hosts along the EuroVelo 9 are happy to help you plan your route. They will of course also provide you with information about bike hires and service points and have all kinds of good tips for you for additional attractions along the tour.
