As well as booking one of our cycling holidays, a great way to get to know Austria is through its food. So here’s a comparison with one of Austria’s best-known gastronomic treats.

Imagine a humble, but delicious, crescent-shaped knipferl that’s fresh from the oven. It’s warm and full of character like Austria’ people, craggy like the Dachstein's towering peaks, and has a history as long – and surprising – as Austria itself.

You see, though the French croissant may come to mind first, Austria’s knipferl actually pre-dated the French breakfast pastry! Whether you enjoy yours with jam, Austrian mountain cheese, or just delicious Pinzgauer butter, the diversity of taste sensations matches the diversity of Austria itself.

It’s this diversity of culture, history, scenery, food and drink that makes an Oro Tours cycling holiday in Austria so memorable. As you ride through Austria’s magnificent Alps, marvel at flower-bedecked meadows ablaze, or swim in its tranquil lakes, it’s like travel's equivalent of enjoying bite after bite of knipferl.

As with neighbouring Germany and Italy, Austria serves up wonderful weather. Austria’s castles, Gasthoefe and beautiful churches will delight under the summer sun as you continue your cycling tour of Austria…

Yes! Our Austrian cycling holidays really are the two-wheeled equivalent of the ubiquitous Austrian knipferl. They’re accessible, delicious and rewarding from first bite until the last. And of course, like the delicious breakfast pastries, once you’ve had one, you’ll keep coming back for more!
