The bicycle is a means of transport widely used in Austria. Not only to explore nature but also to enjoy urban tours. There are numerous programs through Austrian cities, such as the famous Danube, from Passau to Vienna, which combines cycling with a trip by boat or train.
Electric bicycles are another alternative to classic mountain biking. In Tyrol, there are many tours of this kind, especially for beginners. The two wheels are calling you!
The Austrian climate is continental, with cold, rainy and snowy winters. The minimum temperatures vary between 2ºC and -15ºC. Summers are short, with temperatures between 20ºC and 30ºC.
German, Slovenian and Hungarian are the official languages
The fastest way is the plane, since Austria is perfectly connected to the rest of the world through several international airports. The main ones are in Vienna, Graz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Linz and Salzburg. The Austrian National Rail Network is another good option. It connects the country with the main European cities. The long distance trains are perfectly equipped with first and second class cars. Austria has a high-quality train called "Railjet" that connects Budapest with Vienna and Munich, as well as Vienna with Zurich.
If your plan is to go mountain biking, you should avoid the extreme winter months. The most suitable are the spring months, between April and June, although September is already good.
