Cycling from Danube to Tatra mountainsTime to go

Weather

The Central European continental climate
consists of long, hot summers and cold,
snowy winters. The best time for cycling
tours is between April and October.
In the summer months it can get quite hot.
Bear in mind that it will be cooler on the
mountain tours at this time. May June and
September are generally good months to
take advantage of the cooler, but still warm
weather.

Crowds

It must be noted that, according to the
tourism calendar, the first two weeks in
August are when most people go for their
holidays. Generally July and August are the
busiest months. We mention this with regard
to seeing cultural monuments and
UNESCO protected areas with greater ease and with
less people around.
