You never know what you will see travelling by bicycle
Jul 2019
During a river cruise from Budapest to Germany I decided to bike from Brataslava to Vienna. I had read about the Freedom Bridge so I decided to go this way rather than the standard Donauradweg. It is definitely worth seeing. There is a nice park on the Slovak side to take a rest. The view of the Schloßhof palace in the distance on the Austrian side is impressive.

I found it interesting that this seems to be the only connection between Slovakia and Austria for quite a distance each way.

Amazing experience
Jul 2018 • Couples
Around two thirds of our way into a 60km cycle zigzagging between Austria and Slovakia we crossed this bridge over the Morava River into Slovakia. A simple undulating bridge with a picture of St John of Nepomuk (patron of bridges) at the start (Austria and Slovakia are both catholic countries.)

Once - during soviet era communism - you would have been shot without warning for crossing this river . Now you can cross it at will without even a border or passport control. Poignant , exciting and a wonderful part of the journey

Freedom bridge aka chuck norris bridge
May 2018 • Couples
Apparently a local vote suggested the bridge be called chuck Norris bridge but it was rejected in favour of freedom bridge. Easy to get to from Bratislava. 29 bus from under most snp and 30 mins later you are in Devínska. The bridge is a short distance from Devín castle so both could be done in a day. Get off at uhrovecka stop. Cross the road and cut left at the coffee shop. You will see the bridge. Lovely walk across to Austria and the area is full of wildlife. We was 2 nesting storks which was incredible to see. There’s a lovely Austrian chateau you can walk to and some towns nearby. You can also see remnants of the iron curtain. There’s a children’s playground and seated area on Bratislava side and a walking/ cycle route. Buy both bus tickets in Bratislava as we didn’t see machines here. Bus is only 0.90€ each way.

Make a stop during cycling Iron curtain cyclo path
May 2017 • Family
We stopped here on our way from Skalica to Bratislava - a part of Iron curtain cycling path that is almost 150 km long. I suggest it for those who enjoy beautiful scenery and do not require too many people around. The bridge is a short stop for fun. It is not a straight one. You go up and down which makes you to stop at the top to take the photos - on one side there is Slovakia and as you turn, you can see Austria. You can refresh yourself in a small restaurant. There are playgrounds for kids, and you can even see the reminders of the real iron curtain.

This is a very nice short cut to amazing castle od Schonbrun, build for Maria Teresia, where apart from pets, horses, camels and other animals are many exhibitions and seasonal festivities - like in Easter or X-mas.

Connection of Slovakia and Austria
Jul 2016 • Family
Perfect connection of two countries by walk or bike. To do a nice short trip with kids you can park car by Devin castle and go 4,4km to freedom bridge to cross Morava river to Austria and continue 1 more km to Schlosshof castle. There is much more possibilities to do longer trips. You can eat at Devin castle or just next to bridge on SK side. For kids there is playground next to the bridge as well.

AKA Chuck Norris bridge between Slovakia and Austria
Jun 2015 • Family
It was a god idea to build this bridge over Morava river and shorten the cycling tours between Bratislava surroundings and Lower Austria. Bridge is situated in almost untouched scenery. From the Slovak side there are available facilities for refreshment or relax.
But beware of mosquitoes!!! During the summer, closer to sunset, they are really hungry.
