Bike Touring Highlight
Neusiedler See Tourismus planned a bike ride.
July 26, 2020
The Heideweg is a rather ambitious day tour in the border triangle of Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. The bike tour starts in Kittsee, which can be skillfully reached by train from Neusiedl am See. If the route is a little too long for you, there are also various ways to shorten it. However, if you want to divide them into two or more stages, you should take care of your accommodation options in advance, because there are not too many of them on the Heideradweg route.From Kittsee, the tour first takes you south - if you only want to do a mini-round, you can turn right here to Edelstal, where there are really great wine cellars to visit. From there you will be back in Kittsee in no time.If it can be a little more, it continues via Gattendorf to Zurndorf - either across the fields past the Anna Chapel or along the Leitha river. In Zurndorf you can decide again whether you want to dangle to the southwest or prefer to continue straight to Nickelsdorf. And also at Nickelsdorf another variant of the Heideradweg awaits you, which shortens the total distance to the north through a small piece of forest.In Deutsch Jahrndorf you also have the opportunity to make a small detour to the border triangle. The detour is worth it, because in addition to a pretty souvenir photo you can marvel at many different sculptures that were put up by international artists here to commemorate the time of the Iron Curtain. Via Pama you finally turn into the final round to Edelstal, where the historic cellar district is waiting for you to explore. Then it's back to Kittsee.Our tip: When choosing your starting point and the direction of travel, pay attention to the current wind direction. It can get quite windy around Lake Neusiedl and you know the wind is better in your back than in your face.
