Itinerary at a glance

Along the Tauern Cycle Path, idyllic nature meets charming towns - and you will stay in excellent hotels along the way. Stroll through the Getreidegasse in Salzburg (the old town’s bustling heart) and visit Reichersberg Abbey before reaching Passau.

Take a walk today to see Europe’s highest waterfalls

Today’s stage takes you through the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Upper Pinzgau region. Stunning views of snow-covered, three-thousand-metre peaks will accompany you the whole way. Your immediate surroundings will alternate between lush green meadows and cute little villages, which offer you a fairytale backdrop. Take a stroll in Zell am See along the edge of the lake and enjoy the special flair found in this mountain town.

Take the opportunity for a refreshing dip in Lake Zell. You will soon arrive in Saalfelden having cycled via the castle village of Maishofen and Maria Alm with its well-known pilgrimage church. Maria Alm is a great place to take a lunch break. Other highlights along the way to Lofer include the Seisenberg gorge and Lamprechtshöhle (Europe’s deepest cave) near Weißbach.

On today’s bike ride, you will be cycling through the tranquil Saalach valley. Bad Reichenhall tucked away in a little corner of Germany is bound to enchant you. Just a little bit further left to go before you will arrive in Salzburg, the city of Mozart. The vast amount of culture there will enthral you for sure. Make sure to leave enough time for a wander around the historic city and to visit Mozart’s birthplace.

In Oberndorf you can visit the „Silent Night Chapel". Obendorf’s extensive alluvial forests will then lead you to Tittmoning. From there you follow the “Naturerlebnisweg Unterer Inn“ (Lower Inn nature discovery trail) to Burghausen. A magnificent old town and the largest castle complex in Central Europe are the two most noteworthy features in this town.

You will leisurely cycle along the Inn cycle path to the gothic town of Braunau. Along the way, you will see many bird colonies nesting close to the river banks. You continuously follow the German-Austrian border until you get to Obernberg where you will be staying tonight. Check out its well-known marketplace and its baroque architecture. Bad Füssing, a Bavarian spa town, is just a stone’s throw away from here.

You continue along the Inn river, which the famous Reichersberg abbey lies next to. In Schärding make sure to take a break at its baroque market square before reaching Passau, today’s destination. In Passau a three rivers cruise would most certainly be a fitting end to your cycle tour.
