Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


Day 1: Individual Arrival at Krimml

The starting point is situated at the foot of Europe’s biggest waterfalls. A blustering amount of water thunders and plunges down 400 metres. Marvel at this nature spectacle from a well-designed high altitude path. Your rental bikes are ready for you at the hotel.

Day 2: Krimml – Kaprun/Zell am See approx. 60 km

Today’s tour takes you through the national park Hohe Tauern and the Oberpinzgau region.

Snow-cappped summits with a height of 3000 metres are your constant companion. At the same time lush green meadows and pretty little villages alternate and form an amazing backdrop. In Kaprun you have the opportunity to visit the reservoirs and artificial lakes high up in the mountains.

Day 3: Kaprun/Zell am See – Lofer approx. 50 km

Stop at lake Zeller See for an invigorating swim, the very energetic cyclists have the option of an additional cycle tour around the lake.

After that you cycle via Maria Alm, with its famous pilgrimage church you quickly reach Saalfelden with its many restaurants that invites you for a well-earned lunch break. More highlights along the way to Lofer are the Seisenberg ravine and the Lamprechtshöhe near Weißbach.

Day 4: Lofer – Salzburg approx. 50 km

Today you cycle through the placid Saalach valley. Bad Reichenhall is a true little gem tucked away in the ‚German Corner’ and oozing Bavavrian flair. From here you are very close to the city of Mozart Salzburg.

With its ample cultural offerings it attracts visitors from near and afar. Please leave plenty of time to amble through the old part of town and to visit Mozart’s birth place.

Day 5: Salzburg – Lake Mondsee approx. 40km

First you cycle along the river Salzach, after that along the abandoned train path of the Ischler-Bahn all the way to Eugendorf.

Via lush meadows the cycle path takes you to Thalgau and to the foot of the ‚Drachenwand’ (dragon’s wall), a breathtaking rockface reaching all the way to lake Mondsee. The lakeside cycle path leads you into the same-named town or onwards to lake Attersee.

Day 6: Lake Mondsee – Lake Wolfgangsee approx. 40/50 km

Along the south banks of lake Attersee and then onwards into the romantic Weißenbach valley. This will lead you over to the Traun valley and into the venerable imperial town of Bad Ischl. Along the Ischler Ache it is a comfortable and short section to lake Wolfgangsee.

St. Wolfgang (Weißes Rössl, parish church, cog railway up to the Schafberg mountain), Strobl, Abersee (Zinkenbach ravine) and St. Gilgen, the Mozart village on lake Wolfgangsee, are all along your way.

Day 7: Lake Wolfgangsee – Salzburg approx. 40/50 km + Hike

Cycle along the cycle path to St. Gilgen (‚Mozart village’). Then a walk into the Tiefbrunnau area, past lake Hintersee and through the Strub ravine into Wiestal valley (artificial lake).

Through the Glasenbach ravine into the Salzach valley. Shortly before Salzburg we recommend you visit Hellbrunn Palace (park, zoo, trick fountains and water garden). Your day 7-finish is the festival and Mozart city Salzburg with its countless tourist attractions (castle fortress, old part of town).

Day 8: Departure or extra days

Depart after breakfast.
