EuroVelo 9 runs through lovely wine regions and past spas, through the world heritage city of Vienna and Styria. One of the shortest EuroVelo routes leads in the east of Austria through Lower Austria, Vienna and Styria. Along the route, you can discover vineyards, castles and spas. It’s also worth visiting the “Heurigen” (wine tavern) to try regional delicacies.

The Austrian section of EuroVelo 9 crosses the Czech-Lower Austrian border at Blansko/Brno and Rein Valley (Reintal). You cycle through the Weinviertel to Vienna. You reach the centre of Vienna via the Ringstraße with its magni fi cent buildings. The route then heads south along the thermal spa cycle path through the vinyards of the “Thermenregion” (thermal region), through historic towns such as Baden bei Wien. You also pass Bad Erlach and its spas, and enjoy the pumpkin and corn fields that provide a beauti ful alpine ambience in the Wechsel or in Mönichkirchen.

The Styrian spa cycle path leads via Hartberg into Eastern Styria, which is also called „The Garden of Austria” due to its rich culinary diversity, right into the middle of the spa and volcano region. Here, the healing springs of the six spa towns bubble up from the earth with full force and the hilly landscape with its vineyards offers wonderful views on the journey to Bad Radkersburg, a cycling stronghold in Austria. EuroVelo 9 then leads along the well-known Mur cycle path before branching off southwards at Spielfeld towards Maribor, Slovenia‘s second largest city.
