Three children splash in the water in Zeller See

Tauern cycle path for families – based in one hotel

Cycling & Action around Maishofen

7 Days / 6 Nights
Three children splash in the water in Zeller See

Tours based in one hotel are perfect cycling holidays for families! Every day you go on a great (cycling) trip in all directions. In the evening you return ‘home’, where children and parents can relax. The area around Lake Zell is a particularly great destination for young and old, because action, adventure and grandiose natural spectacles await. In addition, there is the crystal clear water of the lake which will bring a sparkle to the eyes of little water babies. With Kasnocken, Kasspressknödel and Pinzgauer Krapfen, the batteries can be refuelled on the Tauern Cycle Path for the next experience.

The fun active holiday let’s children get what they want without neglecting the needs of adults. Lake Zell, the Krimml Waterfall or the view of ‘Austria’s Giants’, the Großglockner – the highlights can be cycled comfortably. Swimming fun not only awaits on day 3 at Lake Zell, but also at Ritzensee. On day 5 there is also the opportunity to take a detour to the summer toboggan run.

The area around the Maishofen base is ideal for numerous hikes at all levels. To strengthen yourself, you should treat yourself to a hearty meal with regional specialties.

  • Lake Zell with its many possibilities for water sports promises a lot of fun. Whether a leisurely trip in a pedal boat, finding balance on a stand-up paddle board or a fast tide on a banana boat – all water babies will get their money’s worth.
  • Visit to the largest waterfalls in Europe: On day 4, the Pinzgauer local train, a highlight for kids in itself, takes you to the Krimml Waterfalls – a real must see in the Salzburg region. Here the masses of water thunder over three levels 380m down to the valley.
  • Fun at the bike golf in Maishofen: The tour starts straight away with a special highlight! A bike golf round through Maishofen – which family member will get a hole in one? 15 adventure golf stations invite you to get to know the alpine village and surrounding landscape.
  • Travel on the famous Glocknerstrasse and enjoy the view of Großglockner: Austria’s highest view can be enjoyed on the Großglockner High Alpine Road. In addition to the impressive nature of the Hohe Tauern National Park, there is a lot to discover on the 48km-long route: museums, visitor centres, mountain huts and of course the view of the Pasterze – the longest glacier in the Eastern Alps.
  • Spaß beim einzigartigen Radgolf in Maishofen: Die Tour startet direkt mit einem besonderen Highlight! Einer Fahrrad-Golfrunde durch Maishofen – welches Familienmitglied schafft dabei wohl ein “Hole-in-one”? 15 Erlebnis-Golfstationen laden ein, das Alpendorf und die Landschaft rundherum kennenzulernen.
  • Fahrt auf der berühmten Glocknerstraße und Ausblick auf den Großglockner: Österreichs höchste Aussicht lässt sich auf der Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße genießen. Neben der eindrucksvollen Natur des Nationalpark Hohe Tauern, gibt es auf der 48 km langen Strecke viel zu entdecken: Museen, Besucherzentren, Berghütten und natürlich der Blick auf die Pasterze – dem längsten Gletscher der Ostalpen.

The day tours often lead along the Tauern Cycle Path and are perfect for cycling with children, as most of the sections are flat or even slightly sloping. The longest stage, the way back from the Krimmler Waterfalls, can be shortened at will by taking the train.

Itinerary at a glance

Lake Zell offers numerous opportunities for recreation and activity - choose between pedal boats, stand-up paddle or a banana boat ride. Try bike golf in Maishofen and marvel at the Krimml Falls.

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?

On flat paths, you will go along Lake Zell’s promenade and around the 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! 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 Ritzensee. 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.

Option for a guided hiking tour (minimum of 4 participants) onto one of Maishofen’s mountains with a view.  Alternatively, a short hiking tour (approx. 1 hour) onto the ‘Schwalbenwand’ to the alp ‘Kammer-Eck-Alm’ enjoying a traditional lunch there.

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?
