Austria's Lakes Seeham-Salzburg 7-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2
Relaxed cycling through Austria's Lake District - based in one hotel! The surrounding area of Salzburg with its beautiful lakes and the slightly hilly Flachgau region offer a much diversified landscape and are an ideal terrain for all cyclists. You will get to know the lakes Obertrumer See, Mattsee, Grabensee, Wallersee, the small Egelseen lakes, lake Irrsee, and lake Mondsee. The Mozart city Salzburg, the birthplace of the Christmas Carol - Silent Night. Oberndorf, the monastery in Michaelbeuern, the collegiate churches at Mattsee and Mondsee, Castle Mondsee, and the Celtic city of Hallein with its tourist mine offer a great cultural aspect to the tour. Moreover, the Salzach meadows, farm fields, shady woods, and nice cycle routes along the lakeshores offer much scenic variety.
Fair Weather Cyclist: On the banks of the lakes and at the river Salzach, the routes are completely flat. In between, the terrain is mostly hilly. Mostly on cycling paths, and almost all the rest is on field and little-used side roads. There are only a few short sections on roads with more traffic.
The superior 3*** hotel run by family Haberl enables you to enjoy the lifestyle of Salzburg: cultured, comfortable, joyful, and genuine. It is simply great to come back to this hotel after an active day of cycling to relax and enjoy oneself. Your attentive hosts will always be happy to fulfill all of your wishes – in the comfortable rooms (with bathroom, toilet, TV) equipped with balcony and a great view of the lake; by the heated pool with a large seating area; on the sun terrace, or in the panoramic restaurant. Moreover, the hotel offers sauna, badminton, and table tennis. Additionally, the location of the hotel – only a few steps from the lake and the town centre - is remarkable.
