The continuously signposted section of the "Iron Curtain Trail", which leads through the Waldviertel/South Bohemia and the Weinviertel/South Moravia, is 329 kilometres long and divided into nine individually navigable stages. From there we continue along the March-Thaya floodplains on the Slovakian border to Bratislava.
It is worthwhile to put on your tour leisurely. First of all, there are many interesting things to see on the way and secondly, one should plan enough time for culinary breaks.
The cycle tour along the Austrian-Czech section of the "Iron Curtain Trail" begins in Gmünd in the northern Waldviertel and ends in Hohenau an der March. For riding on gravel and forest paths as well as on asphalt, a trekking bike or e-bike is the best choice, 2,061 metres uphill and 2,429 metres downhill. Along the way, boards tell interesting facts and stories from days gone by, from the legendary robber captain Grasl to events during the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago.
