Tauern bike path
From Salzburg to Passau.
- 5 Days / 4 Nights
- self guided
You leave Salzburg and its Alps and cycle through the Alpine foothills. The Tauern bike path ends in Tittmoning and from here you have to follow the nature trail along the Lower Inn before you reach today´s destination of Burghausen. Outstanding features are the magnificent historic center and the largest castle complex of Central Europe.
The route leads you along the river Inn up to Braunau. This gothic town is perfect for having lunch break. On your way you see numerous bird colonies. You can cover the remaining way on the Bavarian or Austrian side. Today´s destination Obernberg has a well-known market square with many baroque buildings.
Soon you reach the abbey „Stift Reichersberg“, which is worth a visit. On your route alongside the river Inn you cycle through small towns like Schärding, where you can make a break at the baroque market square. Not far and you have reached the final destination of this beautiful bike trip: Passau. The city of three rivers has a lot to offer, for example the world´s largest organ in the cathedral. A river-cruise would certainly be the ultimate finish of this wonderful bike ride.
Departure or extension
In Passau there is a lot to discover. If you are interested in we would be pleased to book some extra nights for you.
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 hardly present in this variant and therefore the cycling tour is also suitable for families with children.
