10 lakes & Sound of Music 5 7 4.86

In the footsteps of empress Sissi & co.

What is lovelier than being out and about, cycling along the banks of lakes, and just letting your spirit soar in a marvellous natural landscape? The cycling tour through the Salzkammergut and the Trumer Seen lake area is wonderfully suited for this. Only a few kilometres beyond Salzburg, you will be greeted by the luxury of a unique natural panorama. The gentle, hilly landscape of Salzburg’s alpine foothills has a charm all of its own. You will cycle through meadows and moorlands to Oberndorf – the place associated with the Christmas carol "Silent Night" - and also to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl. In a way, you will be travelling a whole world of clichés transformed into realities. The ten lakes round tour is active recreation, experiencing nature and enjoying many attractions, such as the mountain Schafberg and the castle Orth.

The route

On the banks of the lakes and at the river Salzach, the routes are completely flat. In between, the terrain is mainly hilly. Depending on the option chosen, approximately one third of the route is on cycle paths and almost all the rest is through fields and on forest paths, farm roads, and quiet side roads. There are only a few short sections on roads with more traffic.

Outstanding Peaceful Time

von Richard Harder | Jul 31, 2016

We just finished the Ten Lakes Tour in Austria and could not be happier. Eurobike delivered everything that we could ask for and were immediately available when we did call them once. The entire trip was well planned and extremely enjoyable. All of the accommodations were very nice. We hope to visit again.


Awesome trip

von Rosemarie Kerr | Jul 11, 2016

We loved every minute of the trip! Great route with wonderful scenery, maps and directions were very good....only had to backtrack a few times! The accommodation was very good (we booked 3*). The rooms were spacious with updated bathrooms and great breakfasts! We were able to customize the trip and stay extra days along the way which was something we were looking for. The staff we dealt with were very attentive.


Excellent itinerary - magnificient landscapes

von JEAN PAUL BRILLAUD | Jun 13, 2016

Excellent itinerary, beautiful landscapes and nice spots to visit. Very pleasant paths and roads for biking. Perfect accomodations booked by Eurobike. Excellent organisation for bike renting, luggage transfer and hotline service.


A beautiful way to spend a week

von Errol Taylor | May 7, 2016

Superb scenery, especially for the last 3 days of the tour - the small towns of Hallstatt and St Wolfgang are magical and their settings are breathtaking. On our last day, we particularly enjoyed the walk up from St. Gilgen to the high alpine pastures where our bikes were waiting to take us back down, through woods, pretty hamlets and rolling pasture, to Salzburg. There was so much to see and to treasure that we took more than 400 photos... Accommodation was really good throughout - immaculately clean, comfortable and quiet - and the breakfast buffets were lavish. The Eurobike bikes were super. We had 2 unisex bikes: an e-bike and a conventional 21speed. The e-bike was powerful and had excellent range. Both bikes were well equipped, had comfy gel saddles and offered perfect seating position.


10 Lakes & Sound of Music

von Mike Hodgson | Aug 16, 2014

Very impressive team. Nothing was too much trouble - they were there on-hand immediately when we needed them. (For instance, when my sons bike tyre was ripped, the team had a new bike to us in less that 15 minutes !) Felt like a team of enthusiasts who enjoyed and were proud of what they were doing. On the last day we reached Salzburg early, but our luggage was already waiting for us and we were able to drop the bikes off 5 hours early and head off on the rest of our holiday. Everything worked - it was very enjoyable. Great route too...very well thought out.we really like how they mixed it up by including a boat journey and a train journey - a nice touch!

Eurobike - Semiramis sagt | Aug 20, 2014

We do our best to ensure all guests a great holiday. Thank for your nice words, this is our motivation!
