Brewer's Pilgrimage

Beer Pharmacy – Beer Bath – Beer Bliss.

A pint of beer combined with some nice food and a great atmosphere can liven up any kind of discussion. Until the end of the Middle Ages brewing beer was a privilege only given to a very few in society like to monasteries, hospitals and fraternities. As a result these 'historic institutions’ are a large part of this particular cycling tour! Mainly following the Salzach and Inn rivers, the bike 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! It is needless to say that at several breweries each Eurobike guest will have the freshest and coldest pint waiting for them. In one of the breweries a guided tour explains everything about the art of brewing beer in a step by step way. They also explain the history of beer. Not only will this wonderful journey quench your thirst for knowledge, it will also quench your thirst for... beer!

Itinerary

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

Hotel (example):

Hotel Ganslhof

After a short cycle along the Salzach und Saalach rivers 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 you have a unique experience awaiting you in the form of a 'beer bath’ - the true crowning glory at the end of this day!

Hotel (example):

Hotel Moorhof

Cycle through the Ibmer Moor nature reserve to the Benedictine abbey in 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 privat brewery 'Privatbrauerei Trumer’ - two of the most award-winning beer producers in Austria. In the shady beer garden of the Brewery Inn they offer an unlimited supply of the 'amber nectar’ flowing from a beer fountain on special occasions.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Entenwirt

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’. 

Hotel (example):

Hotel Ganslhof

Tour character

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

Schöne Erinnerungen an eine schöne Tour
Im September 2017 haben wir, 5 Männer, beschlossen diese Tour zu fahren. Wir waren alle sehr begeistert von der guten Organisation und er schönen Strecke. Die Brauereien waren alle unterschiedlich und das Bier schmeckte hervorragend! Leider war das Bierbottichbad nicht möglich. Vielleicht fahren wir die Tour ja ein zweites Mal und holen das dann nach.
