Salzkammergut round trip

Salzkammergut - Austria

A summer holiday full of nature and history

The former emperor Franz Josef and his wife Sissi have spent many holidays in this area and the term 'Sommerfrische’ (summer health resort) has been coined here. The aristocracy was easily persuaded and it was not long until half of Vienna was spending the hot summer months in the 'healthy’ region of the Salzkammergut. This is why you will encounter opulent villas and imposing houses on this cycle tour. The artist Gustav Klimt was yet another regular. He spent time by the lakes trying to capture this stunning natural scenery in his own 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...

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. We recommend that you take a stroll along the lake.

In the morning there is plenty of time to explore St. Wolfgang. Today’s short tour leads you at first along the lovely lake Wolfgang 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.

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

Follow the cycle path from Ebensee along the river Traun to famous Bad Ischl. From here you you take a train ride and delve into the 'deepest’ part of 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.

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

You head from one imperial spa resort to the next! But this time you get to visit the world’s most stunning lake resort, Hallstatt too. 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 as to 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’.

Today you head along the Ischler Ache over to Lake Wolfgangsee. Today you have plenty of time again, which allows you to explore St. Wolfgang and to visit the hotel 'Weißes Rössl’ and the pilgrimage church. We recommend a final boat trip on the lake or to even take the cog railway to the top of the Schafberg mountain with an altitude of 1782m!

Tour character

The terrain along the banks of the lakes is completely flat. There are a few hills interspersed. Most of the tour is spent on cycle paths and on sideroads with little traffic cycling from one lake to the next. Cycling on fairly busy roads is unfortunately unavoidable for a few short sections of the tour.
