The Lakes Tour with Charm

The Salzkammergut with charming hotels.

You, your bike and in front of you a glittering blue lake. How does that sound? Too good to be true? Not with the Eurobike team! Over eight days you will explore five lakes in the beautiful Salzkammergut. From Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart, you will travel on to the Mondsee, Attersee and Traunsee and then to Lake Wolfgang and Lake Hallstatt. The rolling hills of the Salzburg Alpine foothills will enchant. In the imperial town of Bad Ischl, a world full of royal history awaits you including the imperial villa, where Sisi and Franz (beloved Austrian Empress and Emperor in the 1800s) celebrated their engagement. A living coffee house culture and a host of boutiques selling traditional clothing, or ‘Tracht’ await you. Enjoy active relaxation alongside astounding natural beauty!

Details of the lakes tour with charming hotels

The Salzkammergut: the pearl of Upper Austria and a patchwork of lakes. An ideal place to unwind as you cycle through the rolling hills, through meadows and moorland. Your constant companion is of course the bike – and countless lakes. In fact, there are five in total. For example, the deep green Lake Attersee, ideal for a long swim, or the clear Wolfgangsee, home to the world famous ‘Weißen Rössl’ (White Horse Inn). And best of all, during the whole bike trip you spend the night in extraordinary hotels, exuding charm. Read more about cycle tours with charm.

Tour highlights at a glance:

  • Boat trip on the Attersee: A fascinating landscape of many colours, impressive summer villas and regional snacks are waiting for you! Full speed ahead!
  • For sport lovers: When cycling alone does not satisfy you, you can take the cable car to the Feuerkogel in Ebensee then hike the circuit around the sunny mountain plateau.
  • Hallstatt UNESCO World Heritage Site: Celtic grave artefacts, the world’s oldest salt mine and a prehistoric museum can all be found in Hallstatt. Get your very own snap of the picture postcard town nestled between the Alps and Lake Hallstatt.

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Take a stroll through the famous Getreidegasse and across the impressive Residenzplatz.

Today you will cycle along the Salzach and then along the disused Ischler railway route until you get to Eugendorf. You will then cycle across lush meadows on the cycle path to Thalgau and the foot of the Drachenwand, an impressive rock massif that stretches all the way to lake Mondsee. The lake side cycle path will then lead you into the centre of the same named town, which is well-known - and not only because of the Sound of Music! 

Next you will cycle along lake Mondsee’s shore until you get to Lake Attersee. This is the largest lake in Salzkammergut and is not only well-known due to its deep-green colour. Many celebrities from near and far live by this lake in magnificent estates. Either by boat (only if you arrive from 01.07. till 31.08.) or by bike along the lakeside, you will head to Weyregg and then through Aurachtal past Lake Traunsee to Gmunden with its famous palace and the ceramic bells in the town hall tower. You only have a few more kilometres until you get to Traunkirchen, where you will be staying overnight.

The bike path takes you along the edge of Lake Traunsee until you get to the saline town of Ebensee. From here you will cycle along the river Traun until you get to Bad Ischl with its Imperial past. Once you have crossed the health resort of Bad Goisern, you will finally get to Lake Hallstatt. Impressed by the amazing scenery, you will cycle along the lake to the “loveliest lakeside town in the world” – Hallstatt. You will stay overnight in the centre of the village. 

Today you head back along the river Traun until you get to Bad Ischl. You should definitely go to the famous Café Zauner where you can try the sweet specialities (included in the price). Emperor Franz Josef and Sissi both will have enjoyed a Gugelhupf cake here. Fuelled up, you will continue cycling along Lake Wolfgang and you will enjoy the atmosphere around your famous hotel, the “weißen Rössl”.

You have a wide array of possible activities for an active day by Austria’s most famous lake. We recommend the journey with the cog railway up to the top of mount Schafberg (1782m). This is to be organised by yourself. From the top you get a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Another option is a boat ride (also organised by yourself). A day swimming in the crystal clear water of Lake Wolfgangsee is an alternative way to have an active day…

Today you cycle along the bike path to St. Gilgen along the edge of the lake. From there you have a one hour walk in the Tiefbrunnau (your bike will be transported in the meantime). Afterwards, you get back on your bike and cycle to Lake Hintersee and through the Strubklamm gorge into the Wiestal valley. The ride through the Glasenbachklamm gorge is impressive and will bring you to the Salzachtal valley. Just before Salzburg, a diversion to Schloss Hellbrunn is well worth it. Your destination is the festival and Mozart town of Salzburg with its many tourist attractions.

Tour character

The terrain along the banks of the lakes is completely flat. In-between the lakes is mainly hilly. Most of the tour is on cycle paths and on roads with little to no traffic from lake to lake. Only for a few short sections, cycling on busier roads is unfortunately unavoidable.

Wunderschöne Reise
Unsere Reise begann am Samstag in Salzburg. Die Unterlagen wurden uns nicht wie erwartet von einem Mitarbeiter persönlich übergeben, sondern warteten auf uns im Hotelzimmer mit dem Hinweis „aufgrund der aktuellen Situation" wird es keine persönliche Übergabe geben. Ich denke mit gebührendem Abstand und/oder Maske hätte dies dennoch stattfinden können. Auch das Auto konnte entgegen der Reisebeschreibung nicht für die ganze Woche im Hotel bleiben, sondern musste im nahegelegene Parkhaus untergebracht werden. Unsere erste Etappe war Mondsee und die Unterkunft Schloss Mondsee. Sehr schönes Hotel und tolles Frühstück. Am nächsten Tag ging es dann über Unterach am Attersee mit einer wunderbaren Schiffsfahrt nach Weyregg. Im kleinen Ort Pinsdorf muss man unter einer Bahnunterführung durch um auf die andere Straßenseite zu gelangen. Leider mussten wir die schweren E-Bikes rauf und runter tragen, da kein Lift vorhanden war. Aber mit vereinten Kräften konnten wir auch das meistern. Durch das schöne Gmunden ging es entlang dem Seeufer vom Traunsee weiter nach Traunkirchen ins Hotel Post. Unsere Zimmer im 4. Stock waren noch nicht renoviert, und schon sehr abgewohnt. Dennoch ein toller Tagesausklang im Gastgarten am Ufer des Traunsees. Weiter ging es in Richtung Bad Ischl, unbedingt den Biedermeier Kaffee in der Konditorei Zauner probieren, nach Bad Goisern. Von dort dem Hallstätter Seeufer entlang bis Obertraun und weiter nach Hallstatt ins Hotel Heritage. Wir waren im Haupthaus untergebracht und einfach nur begeistert…. Aufgrund der „besonderen Situation in St.Wolfgang“ haben wir mit Eurobike Kontakt aufgenommen und konnten völlig problemlos vom weissen Rössl in St.Wolfgang in den Aberseerhof umbuchen. Auch diese Unterkunft, obwohl nur 3 Sterne, war super. Auf der Bundesstraße zwischen Abersee und Strobl - bitte Steckerlfisch probieren!!! An unserem „freien“ Tag erkundeten wir noch die Umgebung vom Wolfgangsee. Am nächsten, unserem letzten, Tourtag machten wir vom Parkplatz St.Gilgen eine ca. 1 stündige Wanderung nach Kühleiten. Was soll ich sagen, als ungeübter Wanderer ist diese Strecke schon eine Herausforderung. 2,39 km aber 350 Höhenmeter steil bergauf. Teilweise sehr eng und dazwischen leider auch sehr mangelhaft beschildert. Unserer Räder warteten schon oben auf uns von dort ging es fast stetig bergab und über Hallein zurück nach Salzburg. Insgesamt waren die Strecken sehr gut beschildert (Eurobike Zeichen) auch die GPS Daten waren super. Fein wäre es, wenn es von Kühleiten 2 verschiedene direkte Routenführungen gäbe: Kühleiten - Hallein- Salzburg und Kühleiten -Salzburg um dazwischen die Daten nicht neu berechnen zu müssen. Unser Fazit: Super Organistion, auch der Gepäcktransport hat immer funktioniert, auch nach der kurzfristigen Umbuchung. Die Reise war wunderschön und kann auf jeden Fall weiter empfohlen werden.

Vielen lieben Dank für Ihr super detailliertes und ehrliches Feedback, Frau Propst! Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie eine solch schöne Zeit im Salzkammergut hatten. Aufgrund von Covid-19 mussten wir für diese Saison leider alle Infogespräche absagen. Für Fragen gibt es aber unsere Service-Hoteline auf der wir gerne erreichbar sind. Ihre Anmerkungen und Tipps nehmen wir dankend an und werden prüfen in wie weit wir dies für die kommende Saison umsetzten können. Wir freuen uns schon jetzt, Sie hoffentlich bald wieder auf einer unserer Radreise begrüßen zu dürfen.
