The Traisental bike tour is popular with families and casual cyclists, especially in the direction of the Danube. This has several reasons:
From Kernhof or St. Aegyd you enjoy a leisurely ride, always slightly downhill along the Traisen. Along the river there are repeatedly places to stay and refresh.
Those who don’t want to cycle along the whole route in one go, can cover individual stages by bus or train. Between Kernhof and St. Pölten drives the Radtramper bus. From Lilienfeld there is a rail link to St Pölten.
IMPORTANT: The stage from Mariazell to Kernhof does require some effort. The descent from Gscheid after Kernhof is steep and winding. For families with small children, this stage is therefore not recommended.
Along the Traisental Bike Tour there are 3 “detours” which are constituted as “family-friendly”
- Family line St. Pölten: Family tour through St. Pölten, to the Landhausvertel, Viehofner lakes and a lookout tower
- Family line St. Aegyd: Family tour to the Kameltheater and white Kernhof Zoo and Horseback Riding Farm Maho
- Family route Freiland-Türnitz: Family tour along the former railway line in the direction of Türnitz
