The name “Bucklige Welt“ - "hunchbacked world" is spot on. A gentle hilly landscape begins where Semmering, Rax and Schneeberg are losing height, hence the name Land of a Thousand Hills. And where there are a thousand hills, there are a thousand possibilities for road bike tours. The Lower Austria region is located at the southern outskirts of Vienna and is known as a low-traffic, diverse road bike area with stunning views.
Landscape highlights of the region Bucklige Welt
Bucklige Welt is a mix of Alpine foreland and low mountain range. But you shouldn’t underestimate the tours. With the constant up and down of the hilly landscape, you clock up quite some altitude metres. Many orchards, especially apple and pear orchards, and small, quaint villages line the routes. The Wechsel Mountains and the Semmering, with its famous Semmering railway, rise in the west and promise challenging tours.
