The hard work on the slopes of the Leithagebirge is richly rewarded by fantastic views far into the Hungarian lowlands. There are a number of information boards that provide an opportunity to take a break and learn more about the regional features. And those who prefer convenience can simply opt for an e-bike.
The route develops its very own magic in spring when, depending on the weather, the entire region turns into an immense sea of blossoms from mid to late April. The ride becomes an unforgettable cycling experience as you travel past thousands of blossoming cherry trees.
The circular route runs from southwest to northeast or vice versa: Steeper on the northern flank and flatter by the lake. It is best to check the prevailing wind direction beforehand, you can then plan the route with a tailwind, because the wind rarely dies down on Lake Neusiedl. The Austrian Sailing Weather Center provides information online about the current conditions and also outlines the trend for the coming hours.
For hungry cyclists, we recommend culinary stops at the region’s many inns and wine taverns, which offer delicious regional dishes and fine Leithaberg wines, according to the season. When the grapes are ripe in fall, you can watch the vintners go about their work. Guided wine tours and tastings take place in wine cellar-lined alleys and at vinotheks. And there are also plenty of specialties made from the cherries that give the route its name.
