Time for sport

Under the Pannonian sun

Burgenland is the right place if you are looking for a wide variety of sports. Whether cycling, hiking or water sports - Burgenland offers a wealth of opportunities for energetic people. And in the mild Pannonian climate, many sports can be practiced almost all year round. That’s what a holiday on the sunny side of Austria is like - that’s a holiday in Burgenland ...

Around 3,300 kilometers of cycle paths await passionate cyclists - from leisurely family tours to challenging mountain bike trails. The 138 kilometer Lake Neusiedl cycle path is particularly popular. Mountain bikers can let off steam on the steep sections of the Rosalia Mountains, at Geschrittenstein and in Eisenberg. And e-bike tours are just as popular in Burgenland as handcar tours or quad bike and Segway excursions.

Golfers appreciate Burgenland above all for its mild climate. You can enjoy teeing off on the local courses almost all year round. Lake Neusiedl also offers sports opportunities all year round: In the warm season, it is one of the most popular sailing and surfing regions in Europe, while in winter it is an El Dorado for ice skaters and ice sailors. The reed belt of the lake, the Rába, the Leitha and the meander of the Lafnitz are also great options for boating.
