WHICH BIKE TOUR WILL IT BE?
Since cycling is exhausting enough, we will at least make selecting the tour easier for you. On our route planner, which we implemented together with our partner Outdooractive, you will only find cycle routes that start directly from the hotel and lead back there. And because we leave nothing to chance, all the routes have been tested and reviewed by us. Test result: very good! Additionally, you can also choose between easy, medium and difficult tours. This makes planning in advance a piece of cake! Just try it out!

– Our Top 3 bike tours –
UP THE HILL, DOWN THE HILL
For the sporty ones
A bike tour on almost exclusively asphalt road with a wonderful panorama. It starts easily on the flat bike path to Gamlitz, past the fruit farm Glück (it's worth stopping by!). Then the route leads towards Grubtal from where a long ascent leads to the Kranachberg - one of the best locations in southern Styria.
3:30 h | 40,4 km | 876 hm
SWEAT, BABY SWEAT
For the endurance fans
Immediately after the biking trail to Gamlitz follows the first more demanding ascent along the Sernauberg to the Sernaukogel, the highest point of the tour at 561 hm. After the rewarding descent, the path leads not through vineyards, but instead across beer-hops plantations. Refreshment tip: Buschenschank Sternat Lenz or Adam Schererkogl.
3:50 h | 58,9 km | 1137 hm
LET THE PEDALS GLOW
For challenge lovers
This tour takes you twice to the plateaus of the southern Styrian wine country - once along the southern Styrian wine route and then on the Kranachberg to the Kreuzbergwarte - the highlight of this tour! There are refreshment stops at the Buschenschank Ha-Hü or Hack-Gebell.
3,5 Std. | 62,8 km | 1300 hm

LOISIUM amenities for biker
If you have your own bike with you, then the question is no longer relevant. Otherwise, our e-bikes & gravel bikes from the iBIKE-BOX are happy to explore the southern Styrian landscape with you.
Where to park?
You can park your own bike comfortably and safely on one of the lockable parking spaces beneath the carport next to the hotel. All those who love their bike so much, they want to have it very close to them even at night, can borrow a bike rack for their room at reception. We ask you to put the borrowed bikes back in the iBIKE-BOX.
Oh yes, we sure hope so! Because a dirty bike means you've given your all. There is a bicycle washing area near the iBIKE-BOX to ensure your two-wheeled friend will feel good again afterwards.
With so much exercising it is no wonder that some point your stomach will speak up and you will have to re-charge. So that you don't have to bother cutting bagels in your hotel room, you can simply order an athlete's snack at reception - individually put together for you. A biking backpack for hire is also included on request!
[Prices depend on the package; Please order at least 24 hours before departure]
Helmets & Co.
Even if you don`t have certain parts of the cycling equipment with you, you are welcome to borrow them from us. Just ask for them at reception.
Do you need a little more information about the tours, refreshment stops or the special secret spots? Our guide will be happy to advise you and give you exclusive insider tips. They can also be booked for a joint cycling excursion - whether in a group or for you all by yourself. You just follow them and they will take you to the most beautiful places.
[On request and subject to availability; prices depend on the package]
