About Ben

Servus! Ich bin der Ben aus Wien und bin ziemlich gerne draußen unterwegs. Im Sommer vorwiegend mit dem Mountain- oder Gravelbike, im Winter liebe ich es mit dem Splitboard meine Spuren in den Schnee zu ziehen. Außerdem habe ich eine Schwäche für Karten. Ob gedruckt oder in digitaler Form, ich kann mich stundenlang mit ihnen beschäftigen und hab beim Planen fast so viel Freude wie beim Durchführen einer Tour. Als Collection-Redakteur für komoot werde ich dir in Zukunft hier so manche Tour vorstellen. Wenn dir die Touren gefallen oder du Verbesserungsvorschläge hast, freue ich mich über eine Nachricht. In diesem Sinne, viel Spaß & happy trails!

      The last day of the route is all about the March, whose alluvial forests you follow to your destination at Stopfenreuth. You stage has no climbs and offers information about nature and meadows again and again. After Hohenau you follow the bike path past the former landing basins of the local sugar factory, which today represent a habitat for numerous species of birds. It goes on relaxed on mostly asphalt roads through a landscape that is characterized by agriculture.From Dürnkrut the route runs closer to the March - here and there you can get to the river and inspect the banks more closely. This works particularly well when the cycle path runs along the railway line over the Marchschlinge. Shortly before Angern you will see the famous Rochus Chapel, Angern itself offers itself as a place to take a break. There is also a ferry to Slovakia here.Marchegg is the next interesting place on the route. As a nature lover, you will also get your money's worth here. The stork house is located in Marchegg Castle, where you can find out more about the birds that live here. Before you reach the destination of the stage, you will pass the famous Hof Palace, which has been beautifully restored and repeatedly offers exhibitions. Ten kilometers later you have reached the Danube Cycle Path, which marks the official end of the Kamp-Thaya-March route. From here you now have the opportunity to ride the Danube Cycle Path to Hainburg. Trains run from Hainburg to Vienna, from where you can continue your journey home.

      Today the character of the route changes again, because there are some vertical meters to conquer. You leave Laa and follow farm roads up to the Galgenberg. The lovely landscape is characterized by rolling hills and vineyards and offers a lot for the eye. Via the villages of Ottenbach and Kleinschweinbarth you continue uphill before you leave for Falkenstein. The Falkenstein ruins, which can be seen from afar, towers over the town and the cellar lane “Oagossn” is one of the most famous in the Weinviertel.Now you drive back out of Falkenstein with a slight increase and complete the last two small mountain classifications of the day. After Poysbrunn you cross the A5 motorway and reach Hernbaumgarten. After wonderfully quiet kilometers through the gentle wine-growing hills, you reach the towns of Großkrut and Altlichtenwarth, where there are once again impressive cellar lanes to visit.With a view of the Little Carpathians, which limit the March plain on the Slovak side, we now descend to today's stage destination Hohenau and thus to the banks of the March. Not far from Hohenau, where you have several guesthouses to choose from, the Thaya also flows into the March. A short trip to the rivers that give this route its name would easily be possible here. The meadow landscape is still largely undisturbed and offers pure nature.

      The fifth day of your discovery tour through Lower Austria will once again take you to enchanting places and through exciting landscapes. Large parts of the stage also run along the Czech-Austrian border and offer you some exciting insights into the history of the region.You naturally leave the Thayatal with an ascent that takes you up into the hills of the Retzer Land. The panorama to the east already reveals that the landscape is beginning to change. You leave the hills of the Waldviertel behind you and reach the plains of the northern Weinviertel. Shortly before Retz you will pass the first vineyards. You will then reach the descent to Retz via bike paths, which you should briefly interrupt at the wind turbine, which is visible from afar, to enjoy the view.After the descent you will reach the wine town of Retz with its pretty town square. You can take a break here in one of the numerous bars and wine taverns. You still have a few kilometers to today's stage destination Laa an der Thaya, but they are completely flat. If the wind doesn't spoil the game, things are moving fast now.The route now runs through the Pulkau Valley, which is known for viticulture. In the villages you will always find cozy resting places and numerous cellar lanes invite you to take a detour from the route. At Seefeld, the route brings you closer to the Czech border and then you reach today's stage destination Laa an der Thaya. The thermal bath city offers suitable accommodations for every taste and maybe the tired muscles would be happy about a visit to the thermal baths.

      You start the day again on the wonderful railway cycle path, but leave it at Waldkirchen and turn again into the Waldviertel hill country. The following section to Raabs is again a perfect example of the beauty of cycling in this area due to the quiet roads. You then complete the last piece in the medieval city of Raabs on a wonderful gravel road. In Raabs itself there are some nice restaurants and, when it is open, the castle is worth a visit.After some ups and downs, after another 15 kilometers you will reach the medieval town of Drosendorf, which is also well worth seeing. This is followed by the ascent to the Galgenberg, from where it goes on quiet goods roads, past several ponds and directly along the border with the Czech Republic towards Riegersburg Castle.You are now getting closer to the Thayatal again and the landscape begins to change: the forest is becoming denser again. You reach the area of the Thayatal National Park, the smallest national park in Austria. A rapid descent takes you down to Hardegg, which in turn is the smallest town in Austria. There is a lot to do in the beautifully situated town, so you can take a trip to the Czech side of the Thaya or visit the nearby National Park House.

      After the start, the route first goes over a bike path and then over beautiful back roads. It is constant but never steep uphill and you reach the highest point of the entire route. Here you cycle through a typical Waldviertel landscape with fields and forests and views to the horizon.From this high plateau it goes with a few small intermediate climbs down into the Thayatal. Before you reach the Deutsche Thaya, one of the headwaters of the Thaya, you can visit the schnapps glass museum in Echsenbach, in which thousands of specimens from all over the world are on display. After a short descent, you now follow pleasant side roads along the Deutsche Thaya and reach Schwarzenau with its pretty castle.After Schwarzenau you cross the Deutsche Thaya via a ford - a bank invites you to take a break here - and you only have a few undulating kilometers on pleasant side streets to the district capital Waidhofen in front of you. A stroll through the historic city center or a visit to the city museum offers many exciting insights into the history of the city and the Waldviertel.The most relaxed section now follows to the stage destination Dobersberg, the bike path on the route of the old Thayatalbahn, which was finally discontinued in 2000. The ride here is accordingly enjoyable, as the route is flat and offers not only beautiful bridges but also old station buildings along the way, which are now used as shelters for cyclists. In Dobersberg, where there are several accommodations, you can find out more about the past and present of the region in the “Zukunftsraum Thayatal”.

      Immediately after Rosenburg, a longer climb takes you up to Altenburg with its impressive pen. Here the landscape changes suddenly and you can enjoy the Waldviertel region for the first time. On side streets and gravel paths you drive through the landscape away from traffic, past other sights, such as Greillenstein Castle. After a demanding gravel section through the forest, you approach the Ottensheim reservoir, where the kamp is dammed up to generate energy.The reservoir, which is somewhat reminiscent of the Norwegian fjords due to its branching into small valleys, is now a leisure paradise with many opportunities to spend relaxing hours. A short bathing break, or if you have a longer time, a boat tour, you should definitely stop here. After the reservoir you follow bike paths along the main road, then turn off in the direction of Mitterreith and you have almost reached the stage destination Zwettl.Shortly before the city you will pass Zwettl Abbey, one of the oldest Cistercian monasteries in the world. In Zwettl itself there are nice cafés in the pretty center and many opportunities to replenish your supplies. As one of the centers in the Waldviertel, Zwettl also offers a good selection of overnight accommodations.

      The Kamp-Thaya-March cycle route begins in Krems an der Donau. After a short exploration tour through the beautiful old town, you leave the city to the east and you go through the vineyards that are so typical of the region. This is followed by an ascent through Rohrendorfer Kellergasse, which is considered the longest cellar lane in Lower Austria. The following section to Langenlois runs through a wine-growing area and offers great views towards the Danube and towards Kamptal.There is a lot to see in Langenlois itself. The sympathetic wine town offers interesting architecture and all kinds of culinary and cultural highlights. You now follow side streets with a wavy profile into the Kamptal. After Schönberg am Kamp you drive more and more often on beautiful gravel paths directly on the banks of the Kamp.After around 30 kilometers you will reach the well-known spa town of Gars am Kamp, which is ideal for exploring. On hot days you can visit the lido and later fortify yourself in the spa bakery with the well-known and extremely tasty poppy seeds. You will reach today's stage destination Rosenburg am Kamp after another ten kilometers. There is accommodation here and if you have the time and inclination, an evening stroll up to the imposing castle is a good idea.
