Route description

Located in the heart of the MTB paradise around Waidhofen, Ybbsitz and Sonntagberg, the Bellevue route offers great views into landscapes and also habitats of the Mostviertel. Especially recommended is this route at the time of the Birnbaumblüte (pear tree blossoming). Despite the considerable 42.6 km length the Bellevue route is ideal as an introduction route to the start of the biking season. Starting from the park bath in Waidhofen an der Ybbs, the city of the towers, the route begins mainly on tarmac first following the Ybbs. We cycle then left up the mountain past idyllic farms, continue on the South-facing Ridge, where you can enjoy already beautiful views of the surroundings, for example a look at the Ybbsitz embedded in the Alpine mountains. Exhausting ascents alternate with less strenuous passages, past chapels and the still covered with straw idyllic farm "Eckamp", past hiking and Meadow trails, the trail continues enjoying again and again great views into the hilly and the pre-Alpine Eisenwurzen, to finally come to St. Leonhard. Here a break is recommended, for example at the Eisenstraßenheurigen Ettel, where one can strengthen themselves for the last ascents up to the Basilica Sonntagberg. After a tour of the Basilica, we can enjoy finally the panorama. Now we have made it, from now the trail goes downhill into the Lueggraben (ditch) to Böhlerwerk. Here we cross the railway tracks and cycle finally left upstream along the romantic Ybbsuferlandschaft (river settings) back to our starting point, where the park bath with a dip into the cool water awaits.
