The leg of the EuroVelo 9 running through the Viennese Alpine range is only 50km long, but this cycling route runs through beautiful scenery. At the foot of the Bucklige Welt this route leads from the valley into the alpine scenery of the Wechsel area. 

The leg of EuroVelo 9 starts at the gates to the Viennese Alpine range, focusing the visitor’s sight on the diverse mountain shapes, similar to the great Alpine range.

Author’s recommendation

The almost parallel running Train route starting from Wiener Neustadt is a possible return route.
