The MTB insider tip - mountain biking in Burgenland

The pleasant climate in Burgendland has long attracted cyclists to the east of Austria.

The hills around Lake Neusiedl are more leisurely, where mountain biking on small roads and paths is particularly popular with families and people looking for relaxation.
