Biking without borders
In Burgenland you can ride for hundreds of kilometres on paths specially reserved for cyclists. It's great when you don’t have to look out for cars coming the other way. You do have to watch out for other cyclists, but there’s enough room for everyone. And the hills are so low here, you hardly ever have to get off your bike to climb them. You can even leave Mum and Dad behind!

HOLIDAYS IN THE SADDLE
If only horses weren’t so tall! They’re certainly nice. And don’t worry, once you’re up in the saddle it’s a great feeling. Riding isn’t that difficult, and you can give it a try or learn to do it almost anywhere in Burgenland.
Staying on the rails
Bikes on railway tracks? They really exist, but only in central Burgenland. They’re called draisines, and you can take eight friends along on one. But then five of you have to peddle hard to keep the thing moving. You certainly get around on a draisine.
You go past a huge ruined castle and yellow sunflower fields, and through a forest. It’s a real adventure!
Pattacake, pattacake ...
Just imagine you can surprise Mum with bread you baked yourself, or make cookies for Dad — they won’t even mind being woken up so early on Sunday. In Southern Burgenland Mr Schmidt will teach you what kinds of grain flour is made from, and how to make wonderful, sticky dough. And you can find out how to knead it with Mrs Holzmann, and make it into beautiful loaves, and bake them. You can’t imagine how great they smell when they come out of the wood-fired oven. And if there’s anything you can’t eat straight away, you can simply take it home with you.

Rosemarie Holzmann: KIDS’ GOLF
Join the club!
You must know minigolf. Real golf is not much different. With golf the course is a lot bigger, and has beautiful greens. And you hit the ball a bit harder (if you can find it again). You keep trying until it goes into a hole with a flag sticking out of it. A hole in one, and you are the champion of Stegersbach, Bad Tatzmannsdorf or Donnerskirchen, Dad says.
Be sure to ring up. The golf courses have fixed times, or a certain number of kids have to register for junior training.
KUGA 4 KIDS
Play hide and seek at the Indian village, learn pottery and cooking, put on a play, make music and draw. Holidays could go on for ever when you’re having such fun. All this, and Indians who also speak Croat!
Keep your hat on!
Mum says they used to be called roller skates. Who cares, so long as you’re having fun. But knee pads and a helmet are a must — otherwise it’s not very funny if you have a spill. They’ve laid out a whole route network just for skaters at the spa. You can skate round the whole area and there’s masses to see. Groovy!
It’s just like the Wild West here! There’s a saloon, a camp fire, and you can try your hand at pinto and bull riding. But the West doesn’t have to be that wild — they have a bouncy castle and a slide castle at Lucky Town.
