Lake Neusiedl Self-guided Cycling Tour - Austria & Hungary

The area around Lake Neusiedl is strongly influenced by the neighbouring ‘Puszta’. Additionally to the rugged plains of the Puszta the impressive reed-belts and lovely vineyards contribute to the unique landscapes of Austria’s youngest UNESCO-World Heritage Site. Explore the Pannonian Lowlands around the largest steppe lake in Central Europe. The lake is located south of the “Danube Metropolis”, Vienna. This region offers the largest network of biking trails in Austria. Another great experience is the national park, where more than 250 different species of birds can be witnessed and observed. Enjoy the ‘Puszta-Romance’ on a holiday in a national park, which has a mild climate until late fall, well equipped bike-paths in a gorgeous picturesque landscape and incredible wildlife. Numerous bathing and leisure facilities are available. Lake Neusiedl is surrounded by winery villages, imposing castles and the historical Hungarian city of Sopron with its beautiful medieval city-centre.
