We are delighted to be able to present the seventeenth route in the European cycle route network: EuroVelo 14 – Waters of Central Europe.
EuroVelo 14 - Waters of Central Europe starts in Zell am See, where there is a very good train connection with Salzburg. The route heads east along the Tauern Cycle Path/Bischofshofen, where it crosses EuroVelo 7 - Sun Route and then changes to the Ennsradweg/Schladming. From Liezen the route takes the Rastalandradweg to St. Michael. It then continues along the Mur cycle path via Bruck an der Mur to Graz. From Graz, take the Mostwärtsradweg and change to the Raabtalradweg. Shortly before the Hungarian border town of Szentgotthard, it is possible to branch off onto EuroVelo 9 - Baltic-Adriatic. The total length of EuroVelo 14 in Austria is 434 kilometers with an altitude of 1,348 meters, and the journey time is estimated at nine days.
On Austrian territory there are train stations along the route about every five kilometres. The combination with the many Bed+Bike accommodation establishments allows for very flexible travel, depending on the weather or personal preferences. The certified Bett+Bike accommodation establishments welcome cyclists for just one night, offer safe parking spaces and help with minor breakdowns.
