Bike & Pedelec
Adventurous, sporty, or leisurely
There are a total of 500 km of routes in Lungau, up in the mountains and down in the valleys; all bikers will find routes that suit them. Mountain bikers, racing bikers, and bikers who enjoy excellent panoramas will love it in the region around St Michael, where they can enjoy unparalleled views. Downhill bikers, freestylers, and mountain bikers can really let rip and feel free on the special routes and marked trails. Marked on the bike maps are suitable routes for bikers, athletes, and leisure cyclists. Professionals in the region offer guided tours for all levels of ability, and many routes, such as the Mur cycle path, are suitable as family tours with children.
Cyclists, E-bikers, and mountain bikers stop off for refreshment in the many restaurants, guest gardens, and Alpine Inns to treat themselves to some of the local culinary delights from the region of Lungau.
Rental bikes and repair workshops
Crossing the Mountains on a Pedelec
The region of Lungau is currently beginning to be known as the “highest E-bike region in Austria”. Electric bikes are available to rent. Although you do need to put in a certain amount of effort, the electric motor provides powerful support when going uphill or when the headwind is too strong. Thanks to a network of charging points, you can “fill up” right up to 2000 m above sea level.
The team at the Wastlwirt reception will gladly give you more details.
Bike of your wish and Maintenance
Guests are very welcome to bring their own bikes with them, or rent a bike of their choice when here. Right next to the Wastlwirt is a qualified bike dealer with a workshop and excellent quality maps (special discounts for Wastlwirt guests). If you want to spare yourself long ups and downs, then you can take your bicycle, mountain bike, or E-bike with you on the Murtalbahn local railway, local buses, the Österreichische Bundesbahn (ÖBB) trains, and also some of the valley buses.
Guests staying at the Romantic Hotel Wastlwirt**** can use our secure storage space for bikes, and various professional quality tools. We will also be happy to arrange a workshop appointment at short notice.
The LungauCard gives you many free or reduced entrance prices.
