Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

Starting in Klagenfurt, on the idyllic eastern shore of Lake Wörthersee, you cycle along the Drau cycle path and the lesser known part of the Slovenian Drau valley. From Dravograd the river squeezes into a narrow, wooded valley. Water, forest and hidden sights such as castles and palaces characterise the landscape. The Drava River leaves Maribor and flows over the Drava Field in its natural form through several nature parks. From Varaždin the journey leads inland through the middle and less, but no less beautiful part of Croatia.

  
Characteristics of the route:

In Austria - mostly on asphalted, partly paved cycle paths in flat terrain. In Slovenia partly gradients, but this section can be shortened by a train ride. In Croatia on little frequented side roads.
The bicycle trip is suitable for children from the age of 16.
