Bicycle tour Lutzmannsburg - Winzendorf 18.8.2005

Holyday at the hot springs in Lutzmannsburg, three rainy days. Instead of driving home, I take the racing bike, riding through Mittelburgenland and Bucklige Welt, 92 km. Sunshine finally, fortunately

Greater Willow Herb(Epilobium hirsutum) near the road between Frankenau and Mannersdorf an der Rabnitz

A bit further: Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare)


Flower field near Dra▀markt.

My route now leads me from Karl to Stang, mostly in steep ascent. The road seems to lead towards heaven ...

Bucklige Welt and View to Mittelburgenland

Locals at work ...

After a racy descent from Stang to Blumau my route goes through an idyllic dale named Spratzau

A house with a functionating mill...

... here in detail

View back down the valley

A big lime tree near the mill

Here the valley is narrow. Near the beck lots of Indian Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera)

On my way further: after Lichtenegg the pilgrimage church of Maria Schnee (833 m)

After a racy descent to Thernberg the ride goes further. The valley widens, the view now goes to Schneeberg and Hohe Wand.
