The starting point for each of your bike tours is the small wine town of Podersdorf. The landscape is characterised by gently rolling vineyards, Lake Neusiedl, which is surrounded by reed belts, and the Lacken - small, flat salt lakes. Everything on this holiday is about enjoying yourself, so make sure to visit one of the many Heurige wine taverns and winemakers. The tours are easy to cycle, but the wind can be a challenge at times. There are lots of opportunities to go for a swim in the lake and you shouldn’t miss a visit to the thermal baths to round off this tour on Lake Neusiedl.
