Brief description

After starting in Mauerbach, the Hirschengarten route winds its way through the wonderful Vienna Woods over a distance of ca. 40 kilometres. Certain altitude differences have to be overcome. The Hirschengarten route is thus  a genuine ‘delicacy’ for spirited mountain bikers.

Route description Hirschengarten-Strecke

Our starting point is in Mauerbach, at the charterhouse on the high street. After a few metres, we turn right onto the Friedhofweg and follow it up to the woods. After moving along the Pitzelsdorfer Bach, we then emerge at Tullner Straße. We cover a distance of 3.7 km along Tullner Straße, and then turn right onto Sofienalpenstraße. The forest paths and close observance of the signposting enable us to emerge onto Mauerbachstraße in Hadersdorf. We cross the tracks along Mauerbachstraße. We finally turn left onto Bahnstraße, and immediately turn right onto the high street.  From the high street, we ride along Herzmanskystraße and follow its trajectory along the tracks until we reach Unterpurkersdorf.  We cross the tracks again in Unterpurkersdorf and ride further via Karlgasse. After moving through the woods, we find ourselves in Gablitz on Ferdinand Ramler Straße, which leads us to Hauersteigstraße. We turn right and move along a gravel path in the direction of Laabach. In Laabach, we continue our journey using Linzerstraße and Teufelswiese, and set our sights on the starting point.
