Itinerary

Having left Salzburg, you leave the Alps behind and cycle through the Alpine foothills instead. On the first section you will cycle through extensive alluvial forests. The Tauern bike path ends in Tiitmoning and from here you follow the nature trail along the Lower Inn before reaching Burghausen, today's destination. Outstanding parts of this town are its magnificent historic centre and the Central Europe's largest castle complex.

The route leads you along the river Inn to Braunau. This gothic town is a perfect place for lunch. On the way you will see numerous bird colonies. You can cycle the rest of today's stage on either the Bavarian or Austrian side. Today´s destination Obernberg has a well-known market square with many baroque buildings.

Soon you reach the abbey "Stift Reichersberg“, which is worth a visit. On your route alongside the river Inn you cycle through small towns like Schärding, where you can have a rest in the baroque market square. Not much further and you will have reached the final destination on this beautiful bike trip: Passau. The city of three rivers has a lot to offer. For example the world´s largest organ is situated inside the city's cathedral. A cruise on the river would certainly be the ultimate finish to this wonderful bike ride!

In Passau there is a lot to discover. If you would like to stay here for longer we will happily book some extra nights for you.

Tour character

The Tauern bike path runs from start to finish with no breaks in it. The route is also fully signposted. The route runs through quiet areas on paved paths and country roads. At times you will have to cycle along busier routes. There are a few short sections of the route where the cycling surface is bumpy. Overall the quality of the cycle route can be described as very good. There are hardly any hills in this version of the tour, which also makes it suitable for families with children.

Eine fantastische Radtour !!!
Krimml und das Klockerhaus => Ein Traum ! Die Radstrecke insgesamt bis Bad Reichenhall durch die Bergtäler ein absoluter Hochgenuß an Berglandschaft und Flußtäler ! Hotel Bad Hochmoos der krönende Abschluß. Unter den bisher gefahrenen 12 Mehrtages- Fahrradtouren in den letzten Jahren war dies wohl eine der Schönsten. Und was den Traum noch am meisten erhöhte, war vor allem auch ein Traumwetter mit größtenteils strahlenden Sonnenschein. Unterm Strich => Es war Klasse !!!
