Hiring Bikes

Burgenland is a cyclist’s dream. Much of the landscape is flat or has gently rolling hills and is criss-crossed with well-marked cycle paths. Local tourist offices can supply cycle maps. From Neusiedl am See, the 135-km Neusiedler See bike trail leads south, crossing into Hungary (bring your passport) for 38km before the path re-emerges in Austria, just south of Mörbisch am See on the western side of the lake.

Nextbike (02742-22 99 01; www.nextbike.at; per hour €1, 24 hours €10) Has over 16 stations around the Neusiedler See and in Eisenstadt where you can hire and drop off a rented bicycle. The website explains the steps and how to register (which you need to do in advance on the website).
