Your bike trip in Austria

You can experience three of the most famous river cycle paths in Austria up close on this cycle holiday. Start comfortably on the Inn cycle path and admire the towering Nordkette mountains. In the Zillertal valley you only make a short stop because the largest waterfalls in Europe are already waiting for you in Salzburg’s Pinzgau region. The popular Tauern cycle path leads you via Lake Zeller See intially into world-famous Salzburg and then onwards to Passau. Here you will meet the river Inn again and of course the Danube. She will accompany you further across Austria to imperial Vienna. Marvellous scenery, culinary delicacies, traditional customs and high culture – a cycle tour could not be more diverse!

Day 1 : Arrival in Innsbruck

Welcome meeting and distribution of rental bikes.

Day 2 : Innsbruck – Strass / Zillertal Valley | 50 km

Accompanied by the towering Nordkette mountains situated above the saltworks town of Hall with its historic Münzerturm tower to Wattens. Here you can visit the enchanting Swarovski World of Crystals. Along the Inn cycle path past Schwaz (Silver tourist mine) to the ‚cyclists‘ village‘ of Strass situated at the entrance of the Zillertal-valley.

Day 3 : Strass / Zillertal valley – Krimml | 25-45 km + transfer

With a view onto the fascinating mountain backdrop of the Zillertaler Hauptkamm with its mountain giants featuring altitudes of more than 3000 metres it is very enjoyable to cycle along the Zillertal cycle path all the way to Zell, or even a bit further into the renowned Mayrhofen. In the early afternoon you take the transfer bus via the Gerlospass to Krimml. Already during this transfer you get to marvel at Europe’s largest waterfalls, which you can afterwards also admire ‚live‘ along a high-altitude path.

Day 4 : Krimml – Kaprun / Zell am See | 60 km

Today’s route leads you through the Hohe Tauern national park and the Oberpinzgau region. En route you are constantly accompanied by snow-covered three thousand metre high peaks. Lush green meadows and cosy little villages take turns and offer a fairy-tale backdrop. In Kaprun you can then visit the high-mountain reservoirs.

Day 5 : Kaprun / Zell am See – Lofer | 50 km

We highly recommend you go for a refreshing swim in Lake Zeller See, athletic cyclists can add on an extra loop. Via Maria Alm featuring the renowned pilgrimage church you quickly reach Saalfelden, where you enjoy your lunch break. Other highlights en route to Lofer are the Seisenberg-ravine and the Lamprechtshöhe-peak near Weißbach.

Day 6 : Lofer – Salzburg | 50 km

During today’s tour you always cycle in the tranquil Saalachtal-valley. Bad Reichenhall situated in the small ‚deutsches Eck‘ will enchant you with Bavarian flair. Now only a short while and you have reached the Mozart city of Salzburg. The culture-rich offerings will amaze you. Please leave plenty of time for a stroll through the historic centre and plan a visit to Mozart’s birthplace.

Day 7 : Salzburg – Burghausen | 60 km

Oberndorf with its ‚Silent Night Chapel‘ and extensive alluvial forests lead you to Tittmoning. From here you follow the ‚Nature Adventure Trail Unterer Inn‘ until Burghausen. A splendid historic centre and the largest castle complex in Central Europe are the most significant attractions of the town.

Day 8 : Burghausen – Schärding | 70 km

The Gothic town of Braunau and numerous bird colonies show the way to Obernberg. Reichersberg Abbey invites for a visit. The little towns along the river Inn appear just like pearls and without doubt one of them is the Baroque town of Schärding with its renowned row of colourful houses called ‚Silberzeile‘.

Day 9 : Schärding – Danube River Loop | 55 km

Along the river Inn into the city of three rivers Passau. We recommend a city tour including a visit to the cathedral, home of the largest church organ in the world. Along the river Danube you cycle via Obernzell and Engelhartszell featuring the only Trappists-monastery in Austria through the Donauleiten nature reserve to the ‚Schlögener Schlinge‘-river loop. A short ferry ride takes you across the Danube to the hotel.

Day 10 : Danube River Loop – Enns or surroundings | 70 km

The renowned Danube river loop is one of the many highlights of this cycle holiday.
