Die Etappe des Iron Curtain Trail entlang der österreichisch-slowakischen Grenze ist trotz ihrer Länge von nur 90 km aufgrund ihrer vielen Attraktionen und ihrer malerischen Uferrouten einen Besuch wert.

Die Route führt entlang der Flüsse March und Donau und beinhaltet mit der Freiheitsbrücke eine beeindruckende Fußgänger- und Fahrradbrücke, die gebaut wurde, um diese beiden Länder zu verbinden. Der Weg führt durch die slowakische Hauptstadt Bratislava und zur historischen Burg Devín, einem Nationaldenkmal aus der Römerzeit. Es handelt sich auch um mehrere mit dem Eisernen Vorhang verbundene Orte, wie z.B. ein Denkmal für die Opfer der kommunistischen Herrschaft in der Nähe der Burg Devín.

EuroVelo 13 - Iron Curtain Trail ist seit 2019 eine Kulturroute des Europarates.
