Into the granite highland on your bike

Anyone looking to discover the Mühlviertel will find that one of the best ways to explore is by cycling. The rolling landscape, with its unique granite formations, unspoilt river valleys and remarkable cultural gems, is perfect for both athletes looking for a challenge and more laid-back cyclists looking for leisurely excursions. The Mühlviertel can be quite demanding on cyclists’ sporting spirit in many areas. Racing cyclists love to use the Mühlviertel as their training grounds because it does wonders for their calf muscles. And touring cyclists are wowed by the diffuse views.

E-bikes in the Mühlviertel

Bikes can grow wings.

Many cyclists supplement their own muscular strength with electric support for their calves. Even the toughest of granite hills loses its bite with the help of a motor-assisted rechargeable e-bike. Numerous charging stations along the cycle routes ensure a fresh boost of energy. But stopping in one of the great restaurants along the way can also help refuel your tank.
