Ten Lakes & Sound of Music

In the footsteps of empress Sissi & co.

What is lovelier than being out and about, cycling along the banks of lakes, and just letting your spirit soar in a marvellous natural landscape? The cycle tour through the Salzkammergut and the Trumer Seen lake area is wonderfully suited for this. Only a few kilometres beyond Salzburg, you will be greeted by the luxury of a unique natural panorama. The gentle, hilly landscape of Salzburg’s alpine foothills has a charm all of its own. You will cycle through meadows and moorlands to Oberndorf – the place associated with the Christmas carol "Silent Night" - and also to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl. In a way, you will be travelling through a whole world of clichés transformed into realities. The ten lakes round tour is active recreation, experiencing nature and enjoying many attractions, such as the Schafberg mountain and the Orth castle.

Beautiful bike roads
Coming from Sweden, I did not know much about what to expect from this tour. The Eurobike team gave me all the info I needed before the tour and answered questions quickly. It is quite easy to do this tour even if you do not speak any german. The route goes through beautiful countryside and quiet side roads. A couple of UNESCO towns are also included. While absolutely gorgeous I found them a little bit too touristy personally. Really a fitting name 10 lakes and sound of music for it. Easy to follow the route with E stickers. I had one puncture which the hotel guided me to a close by bike shop which fixed it quickly. My top tip: Ask for the GPS tracks and get them on your cycling gps pre tour, takes all the hassle out of reading guide notes. This let me just enjoy the landscape. Another tip: Munich airport has great train connections to Salzburg (about 2,5 hour ride).

Ten lakes - close to Salzburg
A very nice and incredibly beautiful cycling holiday. Cycling on bicycle roads or on small country roads with low traffic. Through rolling countryside and along small lakes where you could take a cooling swim. We stayed at small guesthouses, all with friendly staff and great service. A trip I really can recommend.

Cycling around the lakes
You don't have to spend your whole day on your bicycle, there is plenty of time to have a swim, take pictures, enjoy a drink and discover some nice villages.

Zehn Seen Rundfahrt
Diese 10 Seen muß man gesehn haben. Mit dem Bikeline in der Lenkertasche konnte man sich nicht verfahren. An 2 Tagen sind jedoch ca. 400 Höhenmeter zu überwinden. Alle gebuchten 3 Sterne Gasthöfe und Hotels sind zu empfehlen.

Tolle Tour durchs Salzkammergut
Die Höhepunkte dieser Tour sind die schöne Landschaft, die tollen Seen und jede Menge interessante, unterschiedliche Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Route ist liebevoll geplant und bietet jede Menge Fahrspaß, etwas Kondition sollte man aber mitbringen. Die Hotels entsprachen unseren Erwartungen, die Aufnahme war stets freundlich. Die Betreuung durch Eurobike funktionierte reibungslos.

Zum Glück konnten die etwas anstrengenderen Abschnitte durch die wunderschönen Landschaften wieder gut gemacht werden. Herzlichen Dank für Ihre positive Rückmeldung!
