Innsbruck - Salzburg - Vienna

Across Austria.

From Innsbruck to Salzburg to Vienna, Eurobike sends you on your bike straight through Austria. You can experience three of Austria’s best-known river cycle paths up close on the cycle holiday. The Inn Cycle Path, the Tauern Cycle Path and Danube Cycle Path take you on a journey through beautiful Austrian nature, culture and cuisine – a cycle holiday could not be more diverse. The Golden Roof, Mozart, St. Stephen’s Cathedral and many other highlights not only leave goosebumps, but also lasting impressions.

Details of the cycle holiday straight through Austria

Start leisurely on the Inn Cycle Path and admire the steep towering Nordkette mountains. You only make a short stop in the Ziller valley, because the largest waterfalls in Europe are already waiting for you located in Salzburg’s Pinzgau region. The popular Tauern Cycle Path takes you via Lake Zellersee to the world-famous city of Salzburg and then onwards to Passau. Here you come across the rivers Inn and Danube again. You then cycle along the Danube Cycle Path to the capital Vienna.

Cycle holiday highlights ‚Innsbruck – Salzburg – Vienna‘

  • Krimml Waterfalls: Europe’s largest waterfalls located in Krimml await you on this tour. During a short hike along the high-altitude path, you can also admire the roaring masses of water live. But beware, at one point or another it could get a little wet.
  • Lake Zeller See: To cool off during your bike tour, dive into Lake Zeller See. If you prefer to get to know the lake from the shore, you can also do an extra lap here and cycle around it once.
  • Salzburg: Take enough time to explore the world-famous Mozart city of Salzburg and all its sights such as the cathedral and the fortress. We highly recommend a stroll through the old town along Getreidegasse road.
  • Silent Night Chapel: Every year, millions of people sing the world-renowned Christmas carol ‚Silent Night‘ under the Chrismas tree. In 1818 the premier took place in the St. Nikolaus church in Oberndorf, better known today as the Silent Night Chapel.  
  • Vienna: There is probably no better destination than the capital Vienna for this tour across Austria. Enjoy the last few hours in imperial Vienna and visit St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Hofburg or Schönbrunn Palace.

Things to know about the cycling holiday in Austria

In 13 days you cycle from one federal state to the next and experience wonderful landscapes, culinary delicacies, rustic customs and high culture. The route runs on well-developed cycle paths and side roads with little traffic. Thanks to the ‚easy‘ level of difficulty, enjoyment and relaxation come first.

With a view onto the fascinating mountain backdrop of the Zillertaler Hauptkamm with its mountain giants featuring altitudes of more than 3000 metres it is very enjoyable to cycle along the Zillertal cycle path all the way to Zell, or even a bit further into the renowned Mayrhofen. In the early afternoon you take the transfer bus via the Gerlospass to Krimml. Already during this transfer you get to marvel at Europe’s largest waterfalls, which you can afterwards also admire ‚live‘ along a high-altitude path.

Hotel (example): Klockerhaus

Today’s route leads you through the Hohe Tauern national park and the Oberpinzgau region. En route you are constantly accompanied by snow-covered three thousand metre high peaks. Lush green meadows and cosy little villages take turns and offer a fairy-tale backdrop. In Kaprun you can then visit the high-mountain reservoirs.

Please leave plenty of time for a stroll through the historic centre and plan a visit to Mozart’s birthplace.

The Gothic town of Braunau and numerous bird colonies show the way to Obernberg. Reichersberg Abbey invites for a visit. The little towns along the river Inn appear just like pearls and without doubt one of them is the Baroque town of Schärding with its renowned row of colourful houses called ‚Silberzeile‘.

The renowned Danube river loop is one of the many highlights of this cycle holiday. The market towns along the river Danube Aschach, Ottensheim and Wilhering lead you into the provincial capital Linz. Along the lines of: ‚In Linz it all beginz‘ numerous venues in the historic centre invite you for a break. You continue to Enns, into Austria’s oldest town featuring the town square and tower and the town museum ‚Lauriacum‘).
