Cycling & Biking in Carinthia – our Moserhof insider tips for your bike tour at the Millstätter See
Are you planning a leisurely bike ride with the family, a bike ride around Lake Millstatt or a demanding mountain bike tour with your bike friends?
We, your hosts Ihre Gastgeber Franziska und Gerhard Moser-Winkler, are happy to air our insider tips for your individual mountain bike or road bike tour.
Because one thing is certain when cycling in Carinthia on Lake Millstatt: it is the right thing for every taste and every skill!
Millstätter See cycle path
In just 28 km you cycle directly from the Hotel Moserhof around the lake. Experienced cyclists make the route in two hours. But take your time and enjoy all the beauties that the circular cycle path has to offer.
Our Moserhof tip: You can ride the Millstätter See circular cycle path comfortably with the e-bike.
Currently, the range of an e-bike battery is around 140 kilometers. With that distance you cycle five times around Lake Millstatt or tackle the first three stages of the Drauradweg. Numerous e-bike charging stations along the route ensure that your e-bike ride always continues with a full battery.
Drauradweg – Drau cycle path
The Drauradweg, well known far beyond the borders of Carinthia and Austria, leads from the origin of the Drau in the Toblacher field in Italy 366 km along the Drau through East Tyrol and Carinthia to Marburg in Slovenia. The division into individual stages enables an exciting cycling experience for the whole family. So the Drauradweg is suitable for children in many stages as well as for sporty cyclists.
Tip: Get more information about the stages of the Drau Cycle Path directly at our Moserhof, the top bike hotel in Carinthia.
Mountain bike tour to the natural jewel Egelsee (Nockbike 37)
The bike tour to the Egelsee is an ideal beginner's tour for experienced bikers and a special nature experience on the southern shore of Lake Millstätter See.
You start directly from the Bike Hotel Moserhof across the beautiful Seebodener bay. Here you drive briefly on an asphalt road along the southern shore of Lake Millstätter See, then turn right onto a gravel road.
On beautiful root paths and gravel roads you reach the Egelsee after about 6 kilometers. This natural bog lake is a special natural jewel and a popular destination in Carinthia and the region around Lake Millstatt.
Continue alternately on gravel and asphalt roads over the long ridge of the Wolfsberg with magnificent panoramic views of Lake Millstatt and the Drau valley.
Our Moserhof tip: Take a rest in the tranquil village of St. Wolfgang with the beautiful church on the Wolfsberg, which is mentioned for the first time between 1177 and 1187.

Active kicking strengthens our leg, calf and gluteal muscles and improves our endurance without overly straining the joints. An average cyclist weighing 70 kilograms burns up to 1000 kilocalories in a two-hour bike workout.
Proper cycling is important:
What is my position when cycling? How do I set my saddle and handlebar? And how do I kick and brake properly? Austria's public health portal (Gesundheitsportal Österreichs) offers valuable tips on cycling.
