Salzkammergut - based in one hotel

Salzkammergut - Austria

The most famous lakes in the Salzkammergut region invite you for a swim, to go on a boat ride, or to simply cycle along the lake's edge. The practiced traditions will take you back to the times of Empress Sissi’s or even further back into the Hallstatt period. Tempting cakes and pastries will lure you into stylish pastry shops to make sure you get to know the culinary side of this famous region of Austria too. At the end of this journey you will agree with our Emperor Franz Josef - "It was very nice, it was a pleasure!"

Itinerary

The hotel staff will give you your travel documents and rental bikes (if booked).

In the morning, you will take the train to Gmunden. The beautiful lake resort invites you for a walk. We recommend visiting Orth castle and the ceramic chimes in the town hall's tower. On the bike path, you will cycle along the river Traun to Ebensee. Then you will continue further along the Traun until you soon arrive in Bad Ischl. The former imperial city attracts visitors with its Imperial Park, Imperial Villa and Sissi's teahouse. From here there are only a few more kilometres until you will be back at your hotel.

The day will start with a transfer to Gosau. From there, you will be able to ride your bike to lake Vorderen Gosausee. From there you will have a marvellous view. On your way back, you will cycle along the river Gosaubach to Lake Hallstatt and then further along the river Traun back to Bad Goisern.

First, you will ride your bike along the river Traun to Bad Ischl. The river Ischler Ache flows to Lake Wolfgangsee and then further on to St. Wolfgang. If you have time, you should not only visit the White Horse Inn and the church, but you should also go up the Schafberg mountain by taking the rack railway! A short ferry ride (not included in the tour price, about €4 per person) will take you to the other side of the lake and the bike path will take you via lake Nussensee and back to the hotel.

Today, there is plenty of time to explore the World Heritage area around Lake Hallstatt. Magnificent nature and the oldest salt mine in the world, the Dachstein Ice Caves, or a relaxing boat trip – there is something for everyone! During this tour, you will always cycle along the lake's edge and all of the attractions are close to the route.

The train will take you to Bad Aussee. You will have the opportunity to take a trip to the Grundlsee and Toplitzsee lakes. Lake Altausseer See is located on the way to the valley Rettenbachtal, which leads to Bad Ischl. Make sure you try the famous pastry Zaunerstollen (included in the tour price) at Cafè Zauner. Even Emperor Franz Josef enjoyed these delicious pastries! After cycling a few more kilometres, you will get back to Bad Goisern.

Tour character

Most of the stages are easy cycle tours with just occasional very small ascents. There is one longer ascent. You will find yourself either cycling on bike paths or on quiet side roads with little traffic. Only a few kilometres of this tour have to be cycled on busier roads.

Die Sternfahrtreise war organisatorisch und inhaltlich sehr gut organisiert
Die Veränderung der Tagesetappen erfolgte vor Ort und war damit zu kurzfristig und damit waren die spezifischen Unterlagen für uns zu spät einsehbar .Wir konnten aber in Verbindung mit Rückenwind und EuroBike das Problem lösen

Vielen Dank für Ihre gute Bewertung - trotz der vertauschten Tourtage und des Stresses bei der Anreise, weil die Unterlagen nicht exakt paßten. Wir sind froh, dass das vor Ort noch kurzfristig repariert werden konnte und Sie dann auch einen schönen Urlaub hatten. Wir arbeiten permanent daran, alles perfekt vorzubereiten, aber leider kommt es trotzdem auch zu menschlichen Fehlleistungen, die sich nie ganz verhindern lassen - entschuldigen Sie bitte die Unannehmlichkeiten. Wir freuen uns, Sie bald auf Ihrer nächsten Reise begrüßen zu dürfen. Danke, dass Sie uns bereits so lange treu sind!
