LET’S GO

SULTANS TRAIL

The Sultans Trail is a 2500 km long-distance hiking and cycling trail from Vienna to IstanbulIt takes an average person 15 weeks to complete the entire Sultans Trail. Cyclists need around 4 weeks to do so.

East meets West

Contrary to its past, then a path of conquest, the Sultans Trail nowadays is a path of peace, a meeting place for people of different faiths, cultures and backgrounds. That’s why we choose consciously to let this Sultans Trail, a European Cultural Route, run back from Vienna to Istanbul, from conquest to “collaboration in diversity”.
