The bike tour, 20 kilometres long, leads us on paved and mostly asphalted paths from the HERZ via Gmoos, then along the railway to Hopfau and Geiseldorf. The way back takes us along the Dombach stream through a forest to Lebing and back to the HERZ.

This tour is also suitable for people with limited mobility, as it is free of obstacles and steep inclines.

Author’s recommendation

Why not take a detour to the Hartberg Ecopark with its numerous attractions for the whole family!
