Cycling in the Salzkammergut - Circular Cycle Tour 2015
 Info PDF    

With luggage transfer!

The Salzkammergut appears to be from a picture book. Full of nature with its gifts and with multiple gastronomy-, leisure-, entertainment-, sport-, traditional- and cultural facilities. Here no holiday wishes stay unfulfilled!

By one of the 76 lakes of the region with crystal clear water, in the magnificent mountain world with the lush alpine pastures or the bizarre rock formations of the up to 3000m high Dachstein range, in the cultural centres like Gmunden, St. Wolfgang or the Kaiser town Bad Ischl. For your tour we would like to suggest this probably most beautiful place on earth!

General information: The cycle tours don't have any technical difficulties, there are only very few ascents! Some physical fitness and stamina are necessary though as well as cycle equipment like trainers, rucksack, sun- and rain protection, comfortable sports cloths, jacket, jumper aso. The routes can easily be road on with trekking bikes - mostly they are asphalted cycle paths, a few stretches are gravel and forest paths. Should you want to spend a day more relaxingly, you can cover the stretch by public transport like bus, train or boat.
