69 kilometres, 493 metres altitude difference

 

 

 

After a lovely circuit around Lake Klopeiner See, today’s stage has the River Drau in its sights. The route leads predominantly along the famous Drau cycle path, which is one of four cycle routes that was awarded the title ‘ADFC 5-star quality cycle route’ in 2016. Here you can enjoy the relaxed ride along the riverbank – past rocks, castles and reservoirs. In the Rosental hiking region, you will pass through the gunsmith town of Ferlach. In one of the many Drau loops lies the elegant Rosegg Castle with its impressive garden, maze and animal park. From here, it is just a few kilometres to stylish Velden am Wörthersee.
