Innsbruck - Salzburg

Four Rivers, Tradition and High Culture.

Are you looking for an entry-level route for occasional cyclists and want to admire the magnificent, majestic landscape of Austria? Then Eurobike has just the trip for you! The seven-day cycle tour travels from Innsbruck to Salzburg and through the Alps and valleys of western Austria. Tyrolean customs paired with regal Salzburg make this trip a real gem for culture lovers.

Details of the cycle tour from Innsbruck to Salzburg

From Innsbruck you cycle comfortably along the Inn cycle path with the towering Nordkette mountain range as your constant companion. Then it’s off to the idyllic Zillertal and over the Gerols alpine road by bus. On day four you will reach the Tauern cycle path, which is the best developed in the Salzburg area. On the route: the largest waterfalls in Europe, embedded into a unique landscape. Along the Salzach river you cycle to Zell am See and the Zeller Lake, where you can see the reflection of the snow-covered Kitzteinhorn. Your last river companion on the bike tour is the Saalach, until you finally arrive in Salzburg.

Highlights of the tour at a glance:

  • The roaring Krimml waterfalls: Experience the unrestrained power of water up close and listen as it plummets 380 meters towards earth!
  • Hohe Tauern National Park with fairy tale mountain scenery: Three thousand meter peaks, breathtaking scenery – and you are in the thick of it. The largest conservation area in Central Europe is home to the mightiest peaks in Austria, and the largest glacial areas of the Eastern Alps.

Useful information about the cycle tour from Innsbruck to Salzburg

Seven days of leisurely cycling through two federal states. The cycle paths are mainly in the valleys of the Inn, Ziller, Salzach and Saalach and provide an opportunity to see the area’s unique natural beauty. At individual stages, the tour may have brief, gentle hills and short climbs. Every day you travel between 20 and 60 kilometres. Once you arrive at the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – your final destination of Salzburg – you absolutely must try the Salzburg Nockerl! (A sweet speciality of the region.)

You cycle along the easy-going Zillertal bike path until you get to Zell or even a bit further along to the well-known Mayrhofen. Whilst doing so, you have an amazing mountain view of the Zillertal main ridge with its huge peaks over 3000m high. A bus will provide you with a transfer in the early afternoon over the Gerlospass to Krimml. Already during this journey, you will be able to admire Europe’s biggest waterfall, which you can then also view by foot on a high path later on.

Hotel (example): Klockerhaus

Today’s stage runs through the Hohe Tauern national park and Upper Pinzgau. Whilst doing so, you will have snow topped mountains in sight. With the view alternating between lush green meadows and small villages, today’s cycle offers you truly magical scenery. In Kaprun you can visit the Kaprun high mountain reservoirs.

Hotel (example): Zum Hirschen Zell am See

It is highly recommended for you to take a refreshing swim in Lake Zell, which is also an opportunity for any sporty cyclists among you to go for an extra spin. You quickly arrive in Saalfelden via Maria Alm where there is a famous pilgrimage church. This is a great place for you to enjoy lunch. Further highlights on your way to Lofer include the Seisenbergklamm (gorge) and the Lamprechtshöhle (caves) near Weißbach.

Hotel (example): Bad Hochmoos

On your last day’s cycle you cycle through the tranquil Saalach valley. Bad Reichenhall will captivate you with its bavarian flair. You only have a little bit further to go before arriving in the Mozart City of Salzburg. The cultural here is sure to impress. You should have enough time for a stroll around the old town and to visit Mozart’s birth house.

Tour durch spektakuläre Gebirgslandschaft
Die Tour von Innsbruck nach Salzburg ist im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes voller landschaftlicher 'Highlights', eine Tour durch spektakuläre (Hoch-)gebirgslandschaft, wobei die Strecken von Krimml nach Kaprun und Lofer noch einmal besonders hervorzuheben sind.

Fantastic Ride
The ride was fantastic. The route was easy to ride. The days allowed for leisure time or a short side trip. This is a well planned trip with great hotels. While there was a bit of confusion with the short orientation, they didn’t have a bike which I had booked they did a great job of dealing with the issue and responding to my questions and needs. Some issues can occur with travel, it’s how people respond when dealing with a situation. The people at Eurobike were awesome. I’d recommend this trip and Eurobike to anyone.

Excellent Innsbruck to Salzburg
This was my first self guided cycle trip. The initial questions that I had were before and through the booking process were responded to promptly. At the initial meeting they didn't have a bike for me and I was missing the first 2 days of maps. They did a great job of dealing with this and responding to my questions. In fact they delivered a different bike to the hotel where I stayed the first night. Even though I had some intitial concerns the people I spoke to were fantastic and did a great job of dealing with the initial concerns. Issues can come up, it's how people and the company respond that make the difference. The routes were well marked although the trip from Lofer to Salzburg had lots of signs so you really had to pay attention to be sure you were on the right path. Hotels were well located and easy to find on the route. I would reccomend this company to everyone.
