Mozart Cycle Path

On the traces of Wolfgang Amadeus.

This cycle tour starts in Mozart's birth town, Salzburg. You will visit lots of places where Mozart also spent time on his travels. The route takes us to the Inn valley via Lake Chiemsee. From there you go via North Tyrol and small German corner back to Salzburg, the Mozart City.

Why not go for a look around Salzburg on the day you arrive in Mozart’s footsteps? You can check out his birth place, his place of residence, the Mozart statue, Waagplatz, confectionary Fürst, Café Tomaselli and the cathedral.

Cycle along the Salzach river to Oberndorf (birth place of “Silent Night”). You cross the Austrian/Bavarian border to Laufen. From there you cycle to Lake Waginger See. You ride along the river Traun to the Chiemgau's capital, Traunstein (salt works district, town tower and brewery). You will stay overnight in Chieming, Traunstein or the surrounding area.

You cycle from Chieming to Seeon via Seebruck where Mozart visited the monastery several times. From Seeon you go back to Lake Chiemsee and then on to Breitbrunn. Via Amerang you reach Wasserburg where Mozart stayed several times during his travels.

Stroll through the lovely city of Wasserburg, which is nearly trapped by the river Inn. Today you follow the river Inn until you get to Kufstein, the “pearl of Tyrol”. Seeing as the route hardly ever leaves the wonderful Inn valley, there are pretty much no hills. That means taht you can simply enjoy the ride into Tyrol via Rosenheim.  

You continue your bike ride along the river Inn. Afterwards you cycle the hilly route via Ebbs, Walchsee, Waidach and Kössen through the imposing Tyrolean landscape to St. Johann.

Today you cycle to Waidring and Lofer. Mozart visited both of these places on his travels. From Lofer you cycle along the river Saalach on a romantic bike path via Unken and Schneizlreuth to Bad Reichenhall. Mozart stayed in Bad Reichenhall on his last stopover in Salzburg in 1780. You either stay overnight in Bad Reichenhall or Bayerisch Gmain.

Berchtesgaden is a good place to take a break. We recommend a trip to the nearby lake Königssee before returning to Salzburg and spending your last evening there.

Liebliche Tour durch Bayern und Tirol
Wohl besser zu Rad zu meistern als Mozart in seiner Kutsche. Ganz bequem beginnt die Tour an der Salzach an der linke Seite bis zu Stillen Nacht Kapelle in Oberndorf. Danach durchs hügelige Bayern am wunderschön gelegenen Waginger See und weiter zum Chiemsee. Unbedingt sollte man sich bei Schönwetter den tollen Sonnenuntergang mit einem kühlen Weizen gönnen. Danach schön am Inn entlang nach Kufstein. Wenn man zeit findet sollte man sich die Burg anschauen. Durchs Tiroler Land Richtung Salzburg unbedingt eine Schiffahrt am Königsee machen. Hat uns toll gefallen. In Salzburg zurück noch ein wenig Kultur mit Stift Sankt Peter und dem Sattler Panorama das Salzburg in einem riesigen Bild zur Zeit Mozarts zeigt. Die Tour war hat uns ausgesprochen gut gefallen und man sollte seine Badehose mithaben denn man kommt an einigen Seen vorbei.
