Bike region Graz – Schöcklland
Graz – the city that can do everything
Graz, the state capital and second-largest city in Austria, has established itself as a mountain bike hotspot.
The hilly countryside surrounding Graz is an ideal playground for bikers of all ages. The surrounding terrain is diverse with typically earthy soils and roots near the city as well as rockier areas near the Schöckl at higher altitudes.
And the best part is that you can bike to every trail from the city!
Finally, this diversity allows us to put together a great variety of different courses for our customers. For example, we can take you on a basic training on one of our (legal) trails in the north or west of the city, on a tour along the Graz mountains encompassing several different trails, an extended tour to the top of the 1445m high Schöckl, or on a gondola-supported, downhill-specific training in the Schöckl Trail Area – the variety is great and leaves nothing to be desired.
