Brewer´s Pilgrimage

Breweries Pilgramage

Beer Pharmacy - Beer bath - Beer bliss

The combination of a pint of beer, a nice meal and great atmosphere liven and losen up any kind of discussion. Until the end of the Middle Ages brewing beer was a privilege only given to a few such as monasteries, hospitals and brooderhoods. As a result these ‚historic institutions’ are part of this particular cycling tour! Mainly following the rivers Salzach and Inn the cycling paths lead to breweries within monasteries, smaller and bigger private breweries and to some ‚beer enthusiasts’. Beer tasting is of course an important part and experience of this tour! Needless to say, that at several breweries each Eurobike client will have the freshest and coldest pint waiting.  In one of the breweries a guided tour explains all about the art of brewing beer step by step and the history behind beer and brewing right there and then. Not only will this wonderful journey quench your thirst for knowledge but also your thirst for beer!

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. After that the Stiegl brewery and the Augustinerbräu are ripe and ready to host your first Austrian beer tasting experience in the beautiful town of Salzburg.

After a short trip along the rivers Salzach und Saalach, you will be heading into Bavaria. Do not miss the  chance to try more beer specialities at the 'Schönramer Brewery’. After this refreshing Bavarian treat, the tour swiftly leads you via lake Abtsdorfer back to the river Salzach into Austria. After visiting the 'Silent Night’ chapel you arrive at Franking via the Salzachauen. Here a unique experience awaits: a 'beer bath’ - the crowning glory at the end of this day.

You cycle through the nature reserve 'Ibmer Moor’ to the Benedictine abbey at Michaelbeuern. The path leads over a hill called Haunsberg and down to the Trumer lakes. Here you will not only find the 'Creativ Brauerei’, but also the private brewery 'Privatbrauerei Trumer’ - two of the most award-winning beer producers in Austria. In the shady beer garden of the Brewery Inn they offer unlimited supply of the 'amber nectar’ flowing from a beer fountain on special occasions.

From Obertrum you will cycle to Eugendorf via Seekirchen. On top of the retired Ischl train tracks, a cycle path was built that leads straight into the old part of town in Salzburg. Two final beer highlights await at the 'Stiegl Brauwelt’ and at 'Kastners Schenke’ with its 'Kloanen Brauhaus’. 

Tour character

Along the rivers and lakes, the terrain is mainly flat with interspersed slight hills. There are mainly cycle paths and small rural roads, however for some short sections, cycling on roads with moderate traffic is unfortunately unavoidable.
