Itinerary

Arrival to Salzburg - the culturally rich city of Mozart. Take enough time for a stroll through the old part of the city and visit the Mozart´s Birthplace. Your bikes are available in the booked hotel.

Follow the course of the river Salzach. Soon you will reach Hallein. There you can visit the salt mines, which are disused since 1989. The romantic “Bluntautal” is worth a visit, too. In today´s destination Gollling you should allow plenty of time to visit the remarkable waterfall.

Today you cycle first to Werfen. There you will see the castle “Hohenwerfen”. The well-known ice caves are worth a visit. In Bischofshofen you can admire the ski jump, where every year the final of the Four Hills Tournament is held. In St. Johann you will see the well-known “Lichtensteinklamm”, a huge spectacle with 50 m high waterfall at the end of the gorge.

You will soon reach Bruck and the entrance to the „Großglocknerstraße“ (High Alpine Road). From the beginning of July there are buses to the 3.797 m high Großglockner, Austria´s highest mountain, which stops at “Franz-Josephs-Höhe”. The sportive bikers have the opportunity to cycle around Lake Zeller (Zeller See) and the cozy cyclists can use it as a refreshing dip.

After breakfast you will travel back home. On request, we will be happy to book an extended stay or take you back to Salzburg by bus.

Tour character

The Tauern bike path is continuously and detailed signposted. The route leads through quiet and paved paths and country roads. Partly you will have to cycle on more travelled routes. A few short stages you have to manage on unpaved paths. The quality of the trail can be described broadly as very good. An ascending slope is sometimes present in this variant and therefore you should have some base condition.
