Cycling through the wine region
If you love wine, history, and beautiful landscapes, than this bike tour in Austria and the Czech Republic is the perfect choice! You will visit ancient wine regions steeped in two thousand years of wine-making tradition. Get a glimpse into the lives of local wine producers in picturesque villages, which always have two centers, the residential, and the wine making.
You will have opportunities not only to learn the art of viniculture but also to taste and to compare samples of exceptional wines along with specialties of local cuisines!
The cycling routes run through a scenic, slightly hilly countryside, lined with vineyards and showcasing beautiful nature! While biking on border roads between Czech republic and Austria, it is hard to believe that less than 25 years ago this beautiful region was called, "no man's land" and "a death zone", dividing a free world from the Communistic Eastern block by the monstrous iron curtain. Though the cold war is now part of history, you will find traces today!
Highlights of this tour include the cities of Prague and Vienna, two of Europe's cultural centers. Prague's historic center is an exquisite showcase of Czech culture.
One of the biggest advantages of this tour is its flexibility, allowing you to decide how you'd like to spend your days according to the current weather conditions or amount of cycling you wish to do. For those interested in combined tours, it is possible to do hiking instead of biking on day 2,4 and 6.
