Want to be fast, mobile and independent as you explore Klagenfurt am Wörthersee?
The 1,300 kilometres of the Carinthian cycle trail network show that there is no need to do without your bike on holiday either. Klagenfurt also offers many opportunities for exploring the city and its surroundings without a bike of your own.
Cycle tours are enjoyable on holiday too, and save you the stressful search for parking spaces. If you do not have a bike of your own, you can simply hire one from the Tourist Information in Klagenfurt, or use the nextbike hire system. Through our in-house cycle hire, you can hire city bikes, mountain bikes and eBikes from the Soziale Betriebe Kärnten or Papin.
No bike of your own with you? Then hire one!
Do you want to explore the city on two wheels? Or are you planning a longer tour? We have the ideal option for you to pedal your way through the picturesque scenery. From April to October you can hire a bike directly from us. We recommend reserving in advance to be sure you are given the right bike for your needs.
The cycles from SBK – Soziale Betriebe Kärnten GmbH – are a very good choice. 500 cycles are available in the Klagenfurt, Lake Wörthersee, Villach and Lake Ossiachersee area, and can be hired from 11 hire stations. The hired bikes can then be returned to any hire point of your choice. Whether it is women’s, men’s or children’s bikes, trekking bikes or cross bikes, mountain bikes, bikes with 21 or 7 gears, with or without back-pedal brake. The bikes can be selected according to availability, and service, convenience and the optimal accessories are guaranteed.
Either a leisurely ride around the lakes, along the popular 510-kilometre-long Drau Cycle Path, or on the cross-border Alpe-Adria cycle path. For long stretches we recommend the trans-regional cycle hire system, which incorporates all the regions of Carinthia.
So it is possible to hire a cycle at selected locations throughout Carinthia, and hand it back later at around 50 hire stations throughout the province.
