Cycling in the Wörthersee-Rosental region

On Lake Wörthersee, leisure cyclists and mountain bikers can get off to a great start as early as April and make the most of the ideal conditions well into October. For all racing cyclists, the season lasts much longer. Depending on the weather conditions, you can cycle on Lake Wörthersee almost all year round.

Pleasure bike and e-bike

On a leisurely discovery tour

THE cycle tour on Lake Wörthersee is the Wörthersee Tour via the northern shore and the Keutschach 4 Lakes Valley. It is an absolute "must do" for pleasure cyclists during a stay at Lake Wörthersee. The approx. 50 km long route takes around 3 hours and covers just 400 meters in altitude. This makes it suitable for both normal bikes and, of course, perfect for e-bikes.

Along the flat northern shore of Lake Wörthersee, there are countless refreshment stops and opportunities to take a dip in the lake at the open access points. Cyclists who prefer to take it easy usually just cycle from Velden to Metnitzstrand in Klagenfurt - or vice versa - and return on the Wörthersee boat trip.

All those who prefer a more sporty ride can add the second part via Viktring and the 4-lake valley of Keutschach.

Touring biking

At Lake Wörthersee there is also the possibility of undertaking some passable tours on the Ossiacher Tauern, i.e. on the northern shore of Lake Wörthersee. Of course, the region cannot be compared with the alpine mountain bike regions. The tours should be seen as a complementary offer to the unique lake vacation in the Wörthersee lifestyle region.

Roadbike at Lake Wörthersee

Just call it Velo Wörthersee

When a former professional cyclist and legend of the cycling scene, Johnny Hoogerland, chooses Velden as his adopted home, it speaks for itself. In addition to the country and its people, the Dutch road cycling champion and Tour de France polka dot jersey holder chose Lake Wörthersee primarily because of the (almost) year-round ideal training conditions. If you follow Johnny on Strava, you will discover the selectivity of the tours.

Lake Wörthersee has become a household name in insider circles. Far away from the overcrowded road bike hotspots, there is plenty to experience here.

Gravel Bike and Lost Places Discoveries

Full throttle gravel!

Your tires kick up small stones as you follow old paths that lead you to the region's hidden treasures. Lost places, forgotten places that whisper stories of days long gone. These expeditions on your gravel bike are not just a journey through the picturesque landscape, but also a journey into the past, an immersion in the secrets that Lake Wörthersee knows how to keep. Every lost place you discover along the tour suggestions is like a window into another time, an invitation to pause and feel a deep connection with nature and history.

Gravel biking in the region is a unique symbiosis of sport, adventure, quirky stories and cultural discovery. It is a tribute to the freedom of experiencing the landscape in such an intimate way and exploring places that are off the beaten track. It is an invitation to embrace the southern attitude to life that is echoed here in the silence of the Lost Places.

Incidentally, the annual Wörthersee Gravel Race of the UCI World Gravel Series is also about a legend. Well over a thousand athletes from all over the world compete in the region to unravel the mystery of "Gralf" the Wörtherseemandl.
