Salzkammergut based in one hotel

Cycle along the most famous lakes of the Salzkammergut

Famous Lakes and Sweet Clichés.

The most famous lakes of the Salzkammergut invite you for a swim, to go on a boat ride, or to cycle "just" along the lakeshore. Living traditions will take you back in time to Empress Sissi’s times or even further into the Hallstatt period. Tempting cakes and pastries will lure you into stylish pastry shops to make sure you get to know the culinary side of this famous region of Austria. At the end of this journey you will agree with our Emperor Franz Josef - "It was very nice, it was a pleasure"!

Itinerary

The hotel staff will provide you with travel documents and rental bikes.

In the morning, you will take the train to Gmunden. The beautiful lake resort invites you for a walk. We recommend visiting castle Orth and the ceramic chimes in the tower of the town hall. On the bike path, you will cycle along the river Traun to Ebensee. Then you will continue further along the Traun and this way you will soon reach Bad Ischl. The former imperial city attracts visitors with its Imperial Park, Imperial Villa, and Sissi's teahouse. Now only a few kilometres remain until you will be back at your hotel.

The day will start with a transfer to Gosau. From there, you will be able to ride your bike to lake Vorderen Gosausee, from where you will have a marvellous view. On your way back, you will cycle along the river Gosaubach to lake Hallstatt and then further along the river Traun back to Bad Goisern.

First, you will ride your bike along the river Traun to Bad Ischl. The river Ischler Ache flows to Lake Wolfgangsee and further to St. Wolfgang. If time remains, you should not only visit the White Horse Inn and the church, but also go up the mountain Schafberg by taking the rack railway! A short ferry ride (not included in the tour price, about €4per person) will take you to the other side of the lake and the bike path will take you via lake Nussensee and back to the hotel.

Today, there is plenty of time for the World Heritage area around Lake Hallstatt. Magnificent nature and the oldest salt mine in the world, the Dachstein Ice Caves, or a relaxing boat trip – there is something for everyone! During this tour, you will always cycle on the lake shore and all the highlights are close to the route.

The train will take you to Bad Aussee. There, you will have the opportunity to take a trip to the lakes Grundlsee and Toplitzsee. Lake Altausseer See is located on the way to the valley Rettenbachtal, which leads to Bad Ischl. Now you should definitely try the famous pastry Zaunerstollen (included in the tour price) at the Cafè Zauner. Because Emperor Franz Josef has already enjoyed these delicious pastries! After cycling a few more kilometres, you will get back to Bad Goisern.

Tour character

The daily stages are mostly easy to ride and you will also be able to cycle up some smaller climbs and one longer ascent without any difficulties. You will find yourself partly on bike paths and on side roads with little traffic. Only a few kilometres have to be cycled on roads with more traffic.
