Tauern-Cycle Path–based in one hotel-for families

Cycling & Action around Maishofen.

The region around lake Zell is the ideal holiday destination for all cycle families and for all families that want to get into cycling. That’s because there is a new cycle adventure waiting for you every day: you will cycle around the crystal-clear lake Zell and explore Europe’s largest waterfalls. You will also drive to Austria’s highest mountain. Fun and games is never too far away! You can choose if you prefer a game of bike golf in Maishofen or to have fun at the play area by the warm lake Ritzen. Simply marvelous bike paths and scenery as if it came straight out of a picture book put the cherry on the cake for these cycle tour. The home-made puddings and regional dishes in many of the guest houses and farms also contributes to this. Enjoy the tasty “Kasnocken”, a unique speciality from Pinzgau.  And if you don’t want to do any more cycling, you can stop at any time and pick up your rucksack and walk to the Alm that your hotel runs or you can just relax by the swimming pool in your accommodation.

Arrive in Maishofen and move into your accommodation. The travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) are in your hotel.

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?

approx. 20 km

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.  

approx. 30 km

For both big and small this a unique nature show and a fascination experience: the Krimml waterfalls. They are even Europe’s largest! 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.

20 - 70 km

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.

ca. 20 km

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!

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?

Tour character

Almost entirely flat route along the Salzach and Saalach valleys, often along the Tauern-Cycle Path. 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.
