Panoramic tour based in one hotel, 8 days

Hotel “Schloss Kammer”.

Zell am See and the village Maishofen with its castles are the ideal starting points for your day trips.  On mostly flat bike paths you can explore the region around Lake Zell and enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding, partly snow-covered peaks of the over 3,000 metres high Tauern Mountains. You will ride comfortably to unique natural wonders such as the Krimml waterfalls or the Seisenbergklamm gorge and to cultural highlights such as the new national park museum or the tourist mine in Leogang. Also the highest mountain in Austria, the Großglockner with its 3,798 metres, is well-worth a visit. The bus will take you up to 2,500 metres. Many castles are located on or above the road. Your hosts will take care of you after your cycling days and we also recommend mingling with the locals in order to get a first-hand experience of what it means to live traditions on a daily basis.

Itinerary

Your remaining travel documents and your rental bikes (if booked) are waiting in your hotel for you.

Today, you will cycle past Castle Prielau to the lake's shore. There, you will continue along the shoreline to Zell am See, which has a beautiful old town centre (pedestrian zone, historic parish church). You then continue to the Schüttdorf moor. You will return along the other side of the lake where you will get stunning views of the mountain city and the mountain Schmittenhöhe from.

You will take the Krimml train from Zell am See (excl. bicycle ticket, approx. €2.50/bike) up into the Oberpinzgau region to the Krimml waterfalls (highest waterfall in Europe). On your way back you will cycle steadily downhill over the national park towns Hollerbach (herbal village), Stuhlfelden (Castle Liechtenau, Castle Habach) and Mittersill (national park museum, castle). The route can be shortened by train at any time if you want.

 

Option for a guided hiking tour (minimum of 4 participants) onto one of Maishofen’s mountains with a view.  Alternatively, a short hiking tour (approx. 1 hour) onto the ‘Schwalbenwand’ to the alp ‘Kammer-Eck-Alm’ enjoying a traditional lunch there. Or a local circular bike tour (approx. 15 km) as part of the unique ‘Radgolf’ (bicycle golf) in Maishofen.

On the fourth day you will cycle through the small moor bath Neunbrünnen to the riverbanks of the Saalach River and further to the Leogang Ache. The mine will set you back to times long past. Here, the silver ore for the famous Salzburg silver coins was reduced. The richest mineral deposit in Salzburg holds 70 partly very rare kinds of minerals, which can be admired in the mineral cabinet. After your daytrip, you will return back to your hotel through lush meadows and on beautifully landscaped paths.

Today simply enjoy the facilities of your hotel to the fullest. Or do you fancy heading for the mountains? Austria’s highest mountain is very close by and just the journey up Mount Großglockner truly is an experience (also possible by public transport). We also recommend a trip into the nearby city of Salzburg (approx. 85 km) – with your ‘Salzburg Card’, which is part of your holiday, lots of sights are included and free of charge.

Today you will cycle through a small rural hamlet, first to Maria Alm and then to Saalfelden. From there, you will continue along the river Saalach to Weißbach to the Seisenbergklamm gorge. In 1831, woodcutters constructed a 600 metres long way on which now visitors can explore the gorge. Later, you will cycle back to your hotel past Lake Ritzensee and through the Kolling woods.
