Salzburger Land cycling holiday –based in one hotel-for families
Cycling & Action around Maishofen.
Arrival to Maishofen
Arrive in Maishofen and move into your accommodation. The travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) are in your hotel.
Bike golf in Maishofen
It’s time to set off to explore where you will be staying on holiday by bike. Boredom will be miles away because there are plenty of places to play and have fun! Equipped with a map and golf clubs, you will head from one gold course to the next. That’s how you will explore the best spots in Maishofen whilst playing at the same time. In the meantime, you can take a break at one of the many guest houses and farms to fuel up with some regional food. Who will manage to get the most hole in ones despite the obstacles?
On flat paths, you will go along lake Zell’s promenade and around the crystal-clear lake Zell. 3 lidos offer you swimming fun for the whole family for when you want to take a break from the cycling. If you haven’t used up your urge to move, you can try out Stand Up Paddling excellently or even water skiing on lake Zell. Then you will head back to Maishofen via Thumersbach and the Schüttdorfer moor.
For both big and small this a unique nature show and a fascination experience: the Krimml waterfalls. They are even Europe’s largest waterfalls! When on holiday in Salzburger Land, a visit to these waterfalls should not be missed out on. So, get on the Krimml train and head off to the waterfalls. From there you will keep cycling downhill back to Maishofen. If wished, you can shorten your route with the train.
Today’s cycle tour starts off being slightly hilly to Saalfelden and then further on to lake Ritzen. The giant natural swimming pool is well-known for its pleasant water temperatures, the great kid pools and the cool play area. Here you can play some mini golf. Those who want to can extend their cycle tour to the summer toboggan run Biberg. You will then have a small ascent to climb and then a speedy descent down to Maishofen.
To the Großglockner
Today, Austria’s highest mountain is waiting for you: the Großglockner! With the tour bus, you can reach a height of 2,503m from where you enjoy a unique view of the mountains. The bus ride along across the Großglockner Straße is a great experience on its own. Once you have got up high, a national park ranger will answer all of your questions. A great day for the whole family!
Departure or extension
Today the mountains say “farewell” to you. But admittedly: there is still a lot to do and explore in this region. High ropes park, visiting the glaciers and lots more. So maybe you would like to stay another day in Maishofen?
Requirements: basic fitness and cycle skills. All routes are well-suited for families.
Almost entirely flat route along the Salzach and Saalach valleys. Only small hills when the cycle route leaves the riverside. You mainly cycle on bike paths and very quiet side roads. Very short sections on busy roads.
Daily places to swim in lake Zell and in the natural bathing pools.
