Anyone who likes to race around on their bike can let off steam in the Königsberg Bike Park in Hollenstein/Ybbs. Or enjoy the breathtaking nature with the family along the Ybbstal cycle path and cool off and splash around at the many water accesses. (Attention: The cycle path is still officially closed for winter until April 15th, 2024)
If you don't have your own bike, you'll find what you're looking for at the ANKA bike rental in Lunz am See. In addition to adult e-bikes, there are also e-bikes for kids or bike trailers to rent. On the pump track route in Lunz am See behind the middle school, you have to overcome obstacles on your bike and prove your skills on the course.

If you prefer to take a leisurely hike through nature, you can visit the "Hochmoor Leckermoos" or the interesting "Eulenweg" in Göstling/Ybbs. In Lackenhof, some magical forest creatures are waiting for curious explorers on the "Geschichtenweg". On the "Ybbsuferweg" in Waidhofen/Ybbs, a natural idyll is combined with a charming city flair.

Excursions & museums

Whether it's (winter-) outdoor action for little sports fans or historical and cultural things lovingly and interactively prepared for kids - across the Ybbstal Alps there are numerous opportunities to plan a family holiday. A lot of which also make for perfect bad weather alternatives.

Do you want to get to know the origins of Waidhofen and especially the history of children's toys? Then you will find what you are looking for when you visit the 5-Elements-Museum in Waidhofen/Ybbs. Are you interested in the last remnants of the primeval forest in the Alps and want to fly a lap with the Ural owl? Then off you go to the "Haus der Wildnis" exhibition in Lunz am See.
