Facts & Figures about the Velodrome – Salzburg Lake District
- The region presents itself under a ‘roof’: with a network of signposted cycle paths, bike rental stations, e-bike charging stations, cycling events and culinary highlights – so the enjoyment never ends. All this makes for a cycling paradise. The routes are constantly revised and kept up to date.
- An incredible 600km of cycle paths meander through the Salzburg Lake District and are waiting to be discovered – and only 20 minutes by car from the city of Salzburg!
- 14 signposted cycle tours of all difficulty levels are offered. From recreational cyclists to sports cyclists, everyone will find their level. Where does it go? On one of the four lakes Wallersee, Mattsee, Grabensee and Obertrumer See, over hilly landscapes with magnificent views or in the shade of the forests – there’s certainly variety.
- Last-minute bike needed? In this eventuality, seven rental and service stations are available. There are also 20 e-bike charging stations at your disposal, so the e-bikes don’t run out of seam.
Instead of four lakes, you can discover the ‘Ten Lakes Tour’. For more than 27 years now this tour has been one of our classics. As the first Eurobike tour it enjoys a special popularity – because the demand for the tour in Salzburg, where Empress Sissi resided at the time – remains undiminished.
And the Lake District Tour based in one hotel is also happy to welcome numerous cycling enthusiasts. The difference: in contrast to the 10 Lakes Tour, our cyclists pedal throughout the day and return to the same hotel each evening. The five-day tours can be swapped with one another at will.
