The tour can be done with almost any bike, whether touring bike, gravel, mountain or e-bike, all bikers get their money's worth here.

The ascent from Sirnitz to St. Leonhard is quite steep in parts, here you can get there without a motor definitely sweating. The path leads along a stream and is consistently in the shade of the surrounding forest.

Arrived in St. Leonhard, on a gravel road to the "Prekova". There is a place to stop at Gasthoof Seebacher or Gasthof Urscherwirt.

From there over the Zedlitzberg with wonderful views towards the Carinthian Basin, Karawanken and Julian Alps to Köttern and back to Sirnitz.

There are several places to stop for refreshments along the route:

  • Scheiber country inn in Sirnitz
  • Urscherwirt inn and Seebacher inn in Gurk
  • Payer fish farm in Neualbeck,
  • Albeck Castle

Author’s recommendation

At the Payer fish farm in Neualbeck, fresh and smoked local fish are available to take away several times a week.
