Arrival in Salzburg
Tour of Salzburg in Mozart’s footsteps: birth place, place of residence, Mozart statue, Waagplatz, confectionary Fürst, Café Tomaselli, cathedral.
Along the river Salzach to Oberndorf (birth place of “Silent Night, Holy Night”). You cross the Austrian / Bavarian border to Laufen, from there on to Lake Waginger See. You bike along the river Traun to the capital of Chiemgau, Traunstein (salt works district, town tower and brewery). Your overnight is in the surroundings or Chieming or in Traunstein.
You cycle from Chieming via Seebruck to Seeon where Mozart visited the monastery several times. From Seeon you go back to Lake Chiemsee and on to Breitbrunn. Via Amerang you reach Wasserburg where Mozart stayed several times during his travels.
Stroll through the lovely city of Wasserburg which is nearly trapped by the river Inn. Today you follow the river Inn until Kufstein, “pearl of Tyrol”. Enjoy this really stress less path via Rosenheim to Tyrol.
You continue your tour along the river Inn. Afterwards you cycle the hilly route via Ebbs, Walchsee, Waidach and Kössen through the imposing Tyrolean landscape to Kirchdorf or St. Johann.
Today you cycle to Waidring and Lofer. Both places were stations on Mozart´s travels. From Lofer you cycle along the river Saalach on a romantic bike path via Unken and Schneizlreuth to Bad Reichenhall. Mozart stayed in Bad Reichenhall on his last stopover in Salzburg in 1780. Your overnight is in Bad Reichenhall or Bayerisch Gmain.
Berchtesgaden would be a good place to make a break, after you cycle back to Salzburg
