Laussa - Spadenberg - Plattenberg
Free as the wind! Thus, on the Plattenberg, the local mountain above the Laussa Valley, not only the wind turbines rotate on high masts, but also the wheels of the bikes. This bike tour is peppered with sweaty uphill passages and in two places signs command you to dismount. As a reward for the efforts, however, you can enjoy views over the Ennstaler Voralpen and far into neighboring Lower Austria again and again.
The start is at the church square. Along approx. 32 km on gravel, asphalt, field and forest paths, magnificent views await you. Again and again you enjoy views over the Ennstaler Voralpen and far into neighboring Lower Austria. In between you cross the forest ridge of the exactly 1000 meter high Spadenberg and look forward to the enchanting mini high trail across the Plattenberg meadow. from back to the starting point
