Lakes around Salzburg

From the City of Mozart to Lived Traditions.

Salzburg’s lake district's scenery presents itself like a postcard. Nestled among the rolling hills and lush meadows, you will find welcoming and warm lakes. Nevertheless the cultural highlight of this cycling tour is the festival city of Salzburg with its countless sights. The region around the city of Mozart is very different though just as attractive. For sure you will find your your favourite bench amidst a colourful summer meadow bedazzled by its fragrance that is stimulating all of your senses. In this region people and nature are still living in harmony with many old traditions still being practised. Cyclists, dive into Salzburg’s lake district!

Cycle through Oberndorf where you will see the 'Silent Night Chapel’. You then cycle through vast alluvial forests all the way to Tittmoning. From here along the nature adventure path 'Naturerlebnisweg Unterer Inn’ to Burghausen. A magnificent old part of town and Central Europe's biggest castle complex awaits.

Category B: Hotel Bayerischer Hof

The beautiful forest paths in the Weilhart forest take you to the Holzöstersee. You can then continue through the Ibmer Moor to the Benedictine abbey, Michaelbeuern. In the shady beer garden there you can try the handmade Augustiner beer. You cycle via the Haunsberg to the Trumer lakes (Lake Grabensee, Mattsee, Obertrumersee or Wallersee). 

Hotels (example):

Category A: Hotel Walkner
Category B: Entenwirt Das Hotel

Enjoy the most wonderful views over lake Mattsee on your way to the Egelsee lakes' nature reserve. From Schleedorf you do not have far to cycle to get to lake Irrsee. Cycle comfortably along its banks until you reach the renowned Mondsee with its palace, abbey church etc.

Hotels (example):

Category A: Hotel Leitnerbräu
Category B: Gasthof Grüner Baum

A slow-paced bike tour takes you around lake Mondsee. You also have the optional detour to lake Attersee, a deep-green lake (approx. 5 km). There is plenty of time for a swim before you cycle back along the towering sheer rockface 'Drachenwand’ (dragon’s wall) to the lake resort Mondsee. We also recommend going on a boat trip around the lake!

Hotels (example):

Category A: Hotel Leitnerbräu
Category B: Gasthof Grüner Baum

On this bike ride you cycle through lush meadows. The bike path leads you to Thalgau and then onwards to Eugendorf. From there you cycle on the abandoned train path of the Ischler-Bahn until you reach the river Salzach. Finally for the last few kilometres you cycle along the Tauern Cycle Path until you reach the centre of Salzburg. Do not miss enjoying a good cup of Melange in the venerable Cafè Tomaselli or sampling an original Mozartkugel, a chocolate marzipan and nougat treat in Cafè Fürst.

Category A: Hotel Achat Plaza Zum Hirschen
Category B: Hotel Ganslhof

Tour character

Whilst cycling by the lakes and along the river Salzach, the terrain is completely flat with interspersed slight hills. You mainly cycle on bike paths from lake to lake and on quiet side roads. Cycling on busier roads is unfortunately unavoidable for a few short sections of the tour.

tolle Erfahrung
Das erste Mal mit dem Fahrrad/ E-Bike durchs Salzburger Land und überhaupt das erste Mal Urlaub mit dem Rad. . Nah an der Natur und den Menschen. Eine neue tolle Erfahrung, die ich gern wiederholen möchte. Die Berge waren mit dem E-Bike kein Problem.
