Itinerary

In Krimml you find the largest European waterfall. On a well-designed trail you can admire this natural spectacle. Your bikes will be available at the booked accommodation.

Your route runs through the High Tauern National Park and the Oberpinzgau. Although snow covered mountains will constantly accompany you. Lush green meadows alternate with lovely small villages and offer a fabulous scenery. In Kaprun you have the possibility to view the Alpine reservoirs

You cycle via “Maria Alm” with its famous pilgrimage church. Another highlight is Saalfelden, which is perfectly suited for lunch break. Further sights on your way to Lofer are the Seisenbergklamm and Lamprechtshöhe near Weißbach.

Today you cycle through the Saalach valley. Bad Reichenhall, in the “small German corner”, enchants you with Bavarian flair. After a short distance you have reached Salzburg, the city of Mozart. The cultural offer will embrace you. You should plan enough extra time for a walk through the city and a visit of Mozart´s birth house.

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 way to Obernberg on the Bavarian or Austrian side. The abbey „Stift Reichersberg“ is worth a visit. On your route alongside the river Inn you cycle through small towns like Schärding, where you can review this wonderful bike trip at the baroque market square.

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 hardly present in this variant and therefore the cycling tour is also suitable for families with children.
