8-day Self-guided Cycling Tour in Salzkammergut

A summer holiday of nature and history

The former Emperor, Franz Josef, and his wife, Sissi, have spent many holidays in this area and hence coined the term ,Sommerfrische’ (summer health resort). Aristocracy was easily persuaded and it was not long until half of Vienna passed the hot summer months in the ,healthy’ region of the Salzkammergut. This is why you will encounter opulent villas and imposing houses along your cycle tour. The artist Gustav Klimt was yet another regular, spending time on the lakes and trying to capture this stunning natural scenery in his paintings. For you, a journey of cultural, scenic and culinary temptations awaits day by day. You will literally cycle through a world of clichés, that came true...

Tour character: Level 3

Holiday cyclist: The terrain along the banks of the lakes is completely flat with interspersed slight hills. Most of is on cycle paths and on side roads with little traffic cycling from one lake to the next. Only for a few short sections, cycling on busier roads is unfortunately unavoidable.

  • Day 1

    Arrival at lake Wolfgangsee

    Welcome briefing and bike fitting. We recommend a first stroll along the lake.

  • Day 2

    Lake Wolfgangsee – Lake Mondsee approx. 30 km

    During the morning you have ample time to explore St. Wolfgang. Today’s short tour first leads you along the lovely lake Wolfgangsee to St. Gilgen. Then you cycle via the ‚Scharfling’ and past the romantic lake Krottensee to lake Mondsee. The towering sheer rockface ‚Drachenwand’ (dragon’s wall) will be your constant companion until you get to the well-known lake resort with its palace and abbey church.

  • Day 3

    Lake Mondsee – Lake Attersee – Lake Traunsee approx. 60 - 80 km

    The cycle path takes you along the banks of lake Mondsee to the deep-green, lake Attersee. Onwards to the North shore and then through the Aurach valley to lake Traunsee. Gmunden, famous for its pottery and Ort Palace, has often been used as a movie backdrop. Overnight stay in Altmünster, Traunkirchen or Ebensee.

  • Day 4

    Lake Traunsee – Bad Aussee approx. 30 km + train journey

    Follow the cycle path from Ebensee along the river Traun to famous Bad Ischl. From here you take a train ride and delve into the ‚deepest’ Salzkammergut, namely Bad Aussee. Here you have the option of doing a short bike tour to lake Altaussee. There is also a marvellous circular path around the lake amidst the surrounding mountains.

  • Day 5

    Day Trip Ausseer-Land region approx. 30 km

    Today’s cycle tour is all about the Ausseer Lakes. World-famous are lake Grundlsee and lake Toplitz due to their crystal clear waters and the glorious mountain backdrop. You will cycle past lake Altaussee one more time before you return to the spa resort Bad Aussee.

  • Day 6

    Bad Aussee – Lake Hallstätter See – Bad Ischl approx. 40 km

    From one imperial spa resort to the next! But before you head to the world’s most stunning lake resort, Hallstadt. With an entire epoche named after it, naturally there is a lot to see and visit. The world’s oldest salt mine and the bone house are only a few examples, how this charming little place has attracted countless visitors from all over the globe. In Bad Ischl the emperor Franz Josef and his wife Sissi were regulars during the summer and loved spending time in the well-known Cafè Zauner and enjoying a slice of the incredibly delicious “Bundt cake” ‚Guglhupf’.

  • Day 7

    Bad Ischl – Lake Wolfgangsee approx. 35 km

    Along the Ischler Ache over to lake Wolfgangsee. Again today you have plenty of time to explore St. Wolfgang and visit the hotel ‚Weißes Rössl’ and the pilgrimage church. We recommend a final boat trip on the lake or even visit the top of Schafberg mountain at 1782 m by cog railway!
