Arrival in Salzburg
Arrival in the culturally rich City of Mozart. Regardless whether you stroll along the river Salzach with ice cream in hand, glance over the roofs of Salzburg high up from the hill ‚Kapuzinerberg’ or start with a shopping spree in the ‚Getreidegasse’: you can feel the wonderful flair, Salzburg simply oozes culture everywhere. No matter what age you are, Salzburg will enchant you! Welcome meeting and rental bike distribution.
After a short ride by regional railway, you autonomously start your family tour full of beans in Oberndorf (exercised cyclists can take already the bike to cycle to Oberndorf), birthplace of the most famous Christmas carol ever: ‚Silent Night’. Then onwards along the lovely babbling river Salzach into the diverse nature of Austria’s largest moor area: here the warm lakes Höllerersee and Holzöstersee with lido for families await. Just like a little Garden of Eden.
After a swim in the wonderful warm moorland lake, come and join the funny “Wanderbauerngolf”- a special kind of miniature golf along funny walking paths, played with wooden bats. Alternatively you can also go for another cycling tour along the river Salzach to Burghausen, a beautiful city with its very charming old town.
Here in the nature reserve, time seems to stand still. You cycle past the animal paradise to Michaelbeuern and from there into the Trumer-Lake district with its three crystal clear lakes, Lake Obertrumer See, Lake Mattsee and Lake Grabensee. This is the best place to cool off, have fun and relax in the glistening water after your cycling tour.
A cool jump into the water? Not just one but three massive lidos (entrance fee included) await you. Try the slide or the raft, this place has a lot to offer. However this is not all yet: experience the areal adventure in the high rope course and swing as high as 35 metres (entrance fee included). A brilliant outdoor adventure for children and adults.
You cycle along the awesome lake “Wallersee“ with its beautiful lidos to Seekirchen and further to Eugendorf. From there you bike along the old „Ischler Bahntrasse, a shutdown train path, to the city of Mozart: Salzburg. Now is the time to visit all the lovely attractions of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
