Austria's lakes Self-guided Cycling Tour

With charming accommodation! What is lovelier than being out and about, cycling along the banks of lakes and just letting your spirit soar in a marvelous natural landscape? The cycle tour through the Salzkammergut and the Trumer Seen lake area is wonderfully suited for this. Only a few kilometres beyond Salzburg, you will be greeted by the luxury of a unique natural panorama. The gentle, hilly landscape of Salzburg’s alpine foothills has a charm all of its own. You will cycle through meadows and moorlands to Oberndorf – the place associated with the Christmas carol "Silent Night" - and also to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl. In a way, you will be travelling through a whole world of clichés transformed into realities. The ten lakes round tour is active recreation, experiencing nature and enjoying many attractions, such as the Schafberg mountain and the Orth castle.

Tour character: Level 3

Holiday Cyclist: The terrain along the banks of the lakes is completely flat. In between the lakes is mainly hilly. most of the tour is on cycle paths and on roads with little to no traffic from lake to lake. Only for a few short sections, cycling on busier roads is unfortunately unavoidable.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Salzburg

    Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Take a stroll through the famous Getreidegasse and across the impressive Residenzplatz.

  • Day 2

    Salzburg – Lake Mondsee approx. 40 km

    Today you will cycle along the Salzach and then along the disused Ischler railway route until you get to Eugendorf. You will then cycle across lush meadows on the cycle path to Thalgau and the foot of the Drachenwand, an impressive rock massif that stretches all the way to lake Mondsee. The lake side cycle path will then lead you into the centre of the same named town, which is well-known - and not only because of the Sound of Music!

  • Day 3

    Lake Mondsee – Lake Attersee – Lake Traunsee approx. 50/70 km + boat ride (arrival 01.07. - 31.08.)

    Next you will cycle along lake Mondsee’s shore until you get to Lake Attersee. This is the largest lake in Salzkammergut and is not only well-known due to its deep-green colour, many celebrities from near and far live by this lake in magnificent estates. Either by boat (only if you arrive from 01.07. till 31.08.) or by bike along the lakeside, you will head to Weyregg and then through Aurachtal past Lake Traunsee to Gmunden with its famous palace and the ceramic bells in the town hall tower. You only have a few more kilometres until you get to Traunkirchen, where you will be staying overnight.

  • Day 4

    Lake Traunsee – Lake Hallstatt approx. 45 km

    The bike path takes you along the edge of Lake Traunsee until you get to the saline town of Ebensee. From here you will cycle along the river Traun until you get to Bad Ischl with its Imperial past. Once you have crossed the health resort of Bad Goisern, you will finally get to Lake Hallstatt. Impressed by the amazing scenery, you will cycle along the lake to the “loveliest lakeside town in the world” – Hallstatt. You will stay overnight in the centre of the village.

  • Day 5

    Lake Hallstatt– Lake Wolfgangsee approx. 40 km

    Today you head back along the river Traun until you get to Bad Ischl. You should definitely go to the famous Café Zauner where you can try the sweet specialities (included in the price). Emperor Franz Josef and Sissi both will have enjoyed a Gugelhupf cake here. Fuelled up, you will continue cycling along Lake Wolfgang and you will enjoy the atmosphere around your famous hotel, the “weißen Rössl”.

  • Day 6

    Rest day by Lake Wolfgangsee

    You have a wide array of possible activities for an active day by Austria’s most famous lake. We recommend the journey with the cog railway up to the top of mount Schafberg (1782m). This is to be organised by yourself. From the top you get a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Another option is a boat ride (also organised by yourself). A day swimming in the crystal clear water of Lake Wolfgangsee is an alternative way to have an active day.

  • Day 7

    Lake Wolfgangsee – Salzburg approx. 50 km + Hike

    Today you cycle along the bike path to St. Gilgen along the edge of the lake. From there you have a one hour walk in the Tiefbrunnau (your bike will be transported in the meantime). Afterwards, you get back on your bike and cycle to Lake Hintersee and through the Strubklamm gorge into the Wiestal valley. The ride through the Glasenbachklamm gorge is impressive and will bring you to the Salzachtal valley. Just before Salzburg, a diversion to Schloss Hellbrunn is well worth it. Your destination is the festival and Mozart town of Salzburg with its many tourist attractions.
