Salzburg - Vienna

Mozart, Castles and Viennese Walz.

At the beginning and end of this journey are the two great Austrian cities of culture, for which the journey alone is worthwhile. Salzburg offers Mozart and the world-famous festival as well as the beautiful old town. St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Museum Quarter, Schönbrunn Palace - Vienna is in a class of its own and worth every moment! Three rivers - Salzach, Inn and Danube - form the route of this tour, where unique natural experiences await.

Details of the Salzburg - Vienna cycle tour

After an extensive exploration of Salzburg, the first stage of the route leads to Burghausen. A special highlight here is the visit to the "Silent Night Chapel" in Oberndorf. In 1818, the famous Christmas carol was sung here for the first time; in the meantime, it has been translated into around 330 languages and dialects.

With Burghausen and Schärding, there are two stage destinations that could not be more charming. The old towns are beautiful. Via the provincial capital Linz, where art and industry form a symbiosis, the route leads to Enns, the oldest town in Austria, and the charming baroque town of Grein with its maritime museum and castle. The final stage goes through the Wachau, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. Quite rightly, because it is a dream! From Krems, the train takes you to Vienna, where the big city awaits with all its advantages and full of life. 

Highlights of the cycling tour from Salzburg to Vienna

  • Mozartplatz in Salzburg: As a central point in the city centre, Mozartplatz is the perfect starting point for a discovery tour of the old town. The city's most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, guards the square with a wary eye. Where should you go first from here? To the cathedral or rather up to Hohensalzburg Fortress.
  • The Schlögener Schlinge natural spectacle: The Danube flows seemingly straight through the beautiful Danube valley from Passau. Suddenly the mighty river turns 180 degrees in Schlögen. Granite is the trigger, because the Danube couldn’t push through and just had to find another way.
  • Juicy apricots in the Wachau World Heritage Site: After 21 years as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Wachau is world-famous - and for several things. For the excellent wine, the sweet apricots, the delicious cuisine or the delightful villages with numerous Heurigen, e.g. Spitz or Dürnstein. Let yourself go, take a deep breath in and relax.
  • The Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel is not only a visual highlight, but also a special piece of the city's history. After 50 years on the throne, the Giant Ferris Wheel was built in 1897 in honour of Emperor Franz Josef I. Enjoy the outstanding views over the rooftops of Vienna on a ride.

Itinerary

Arrive in Salzburg, Mozart's city that is filled with cultural treasures. Take a relaxing stroll through the old part of town and visit the house where Mozart was born, the cathedral, Mirabell Palace, the castle and the fortress called Hohensalzburg. Your welcome briefing and the fitting of the bikes will take place today. 

Hotels (example):

Cat. A: ARCOTEL Castellani
Cat. B: Ganslhof

After seeing the ‘Silent Night’ chapel in Oberndorf, you will cycle through extensive forests to Tittmoning. From here the Nature Adventure Trail called ‘Unterer Inn’ runs until Burghausen. The stunning old part of town and the largest castle site in the world are the biggest attractions in this very memorable town.

Hotels (example):

Cat. A: Glöcklhofer
Cat. B: Bayerischer Hof

On your way to Obernberg you will go past the Gothic town of Braunau and numerous bird colonies. The monastery in Reichersberg invites you for a visit. The small towns that you will go past are like pearls along the river Inn. The baroque town of Schärding definitely counts as one of these pearls with its main square called the 'Silberzeile' in German.  

Hotels (example):

Cat. A: Biedermeier Hof
Cat. B: Stiegenwirt

 

Today you cycle along the river Inn on your way into Passau where the 3 rivers famously meet. We highly recommend a tour around the town including a visit to the cathedral (biggest church organ in the world). You then continue cycling along the Danube via Obernzell and Engelhartszell monastery (where the only Austrian Trappisten monastery is). You then cycle through the nature reserve Donauleiten  until you get to the 'Schlögener Schlinge’. Ferry transfer to hotel (not included in the tour). 

Hotels (example):

Cat. A: Donauschlinge
Cat. B: Freizeitanlage Schlögen

The well-known ‘Donauschlinge’ is one of many highlights of on this particular cycle tour. Aschach, Ottensheim and Wilhering are three small towns along the Danube that pave your way into Linz. In the old historic part of town there are countless cafes and inns that invite to you to take a well-deserved break. At the end of the day you cycle to Enns, which is Austria's oldest town (town square with tower, museum Lauriacum).

Hotels (example):

Category A + B: Zum goldenen Schiff

Follow the Danube into the pretty little Baroque town of Grein (theater, maritime museum, Grein castle). You cycle via the once feared Strudengau into Austria’s wine region to Marbach or Maria Taferl, which is home of a pilgrimage church that is impressively located high above the Danube.

Hotels (example):

Cat. A: Rose
Cat. B: Zur schönen Wienerin

After going past the stunning Melk monastery, the small romantic towns in the wonderful 'Wachau' wine region like Weißenkirchen, Dürnstein and Krems will enchant you. You then get to take the train to Austria’s capital, Vienna where you will find countless sights and interesting places to see.

Hotels (example):

Category A +B: Arcotel Kaiserwasser
 

Tour character

This tour goes along quiet tarmac bicycle paths and small rural roads along the  Salzach, Inn and Danube rivers. There are only a few short sections on non-asphalted cycle paths. The Danube cycle path runs downhill and is a perfectly designed cycle path.
