Enns Cycle Path

Back to nature.

On this cycle tour you get close to nature. At the start of the tour the Enns river is a small stream, which curls through the Styrian Ennstal Valley. In the Gesäuse national park the Enns river forces its way as thunderous water through canyons. In the Kalkalpen national park it presents itself as a green ribbon. In Steyr the river Steyr and the Enns unify and flow towrads the Danube in a leisurely manner. The Enns bike path is truly diversified, scenic and cultural! Romantic canyons, picturesque villages, beautiful mountains and lonesome paths at the border of two national parks are awaiting you.

Itinerary

Arrival as arranged by you. Check-in to your accomodation, get your bikes (if booked) and your travel documents. Take time for a short walk in Radstadt - “the old city in the mountains”.

Follow the still narrow Enns to Styria and marvel at the breathtaking Dachstein south wall, before you arrive in the ski world cup town Schladming. After a short climp in the loose valley you arrive in Gröbming

You cycle leisurely through the wide valley. From a distance the pointy mountain-prongs of the Gesäuse mountain range salute. In Admont you have the possibility to visit the world's largest monastery library.

Today gets narrow. The Enns flows with the wild “Gesäuse” through the national park. The canyon (20 km) is one of the most phenomenal Austrian natural spectacles. You then cycle via Weng and Buchauer Sattle to St Gallen.

The impressive Gallenstein castle waves you goodbye as you head off into Upper Austria. The amazing forested mountains frame the Kalkalpen national park. Endangered species like lynx and eagles are native here.

During the ironworks' heyday the river Enns made a significant contribution to the economonic situation. The raw ore was shipped on rafts to craftsmen who made knives. There are a lot of museum where you can learn more about this and where the topic really comes to life.  

At the confluence with the river Steyr, the Enns river becomes more sedate that leisurely flows past the same-named town. Enns is own of Austria's oldest towns and it was settled by the Celts and the Romans. The Lauriacum museum represents this era. You cycle along the Danube bike path to Linz, the provincial capital of Upper Austria.

Sehr schön
Wie immer haben wir uns bei Eurobike sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Es war bereits unsere 5. Radreise und bestimmt nicht unsere letzte gewesen. Mit einer gewissen Grundkondition macht die Tour Spaß und Lust auf mehr!
