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.)
