Ten Lakes for families

En route in the Lake District around Salzburg.

What is more amazing than cycling as a family through marvellous scenery and unspoilt nature? Very simple: to cool off afterwards in a crystal-clear lake. There is lots of fun on offer in the Lake District around Salzburg, because not only one but ten lakes await you and want to be explored by you. Large lidos with excellent leisure activities, little adventures along the way, like the high rope course in Seeham, and to top it off with the quietness of nature. But first you can contemplate the secrets of the famous city of Mozart Salzburg whilst enjoying some ice cream or a piece of Sachertorte. Cycling and swimming fun - you have a lot to look forward to in the lake district around Salzburg!

Itinerary

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.

Hotel example: Achat Plaza zum Hirschen

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.

Hotel example: Seewirt Franking

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.

Hotel example: Seewirt Franking

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.

Hotel example: Hotel Walkner

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: you can experience the areal adventure in the high rope course and swing as high as 35 metres (not opened daily). Or you do a short cycle tour along the Obertrumer See – Bathing stop inclusive.

Hotel example: Hotel Walkner

You cycle through the nature reserve of the pretty Egelseen-lakes to Schleedorf, from there you continue along the sparkling Lake Irrsee all the way to Lake Mondsee. At the tranquil Lake Mondsee you will not miss out on swimming and fun, that’s a guarantee! During your cycling tour you get to taste typically Austrian cuisine, dishes such as Schnitzel and apple strudel, in one of the many inns.

Hotel example: Landhaus Meingast

The route leads you past lush meadows along the cycle path to Thalgau and onwards to Eugendorf. From here you continue on the tracks of the disused Ischler-railway all the way to the river Salzach and then along the Tauern-cycle path into the centre of Salzburg. As a reward you can treat yourselves to a delicious ice cream or try the original Salzburg chocolates called ‚Mozartkugeln’ at the place of their creation. Be advised to take enough time for this city. There is so much to see: a visit to  Mozart’s birth place, cathedral, Mirabell palace or the castle ‚Hohensalzburg’. The water fountains in Hellbrunn palace are a lot of fun too. The Zoo Hellbrun is a must for all animal lovers.

Hotel example: Achat Plaza zum Hirschen

Today options for departure are all yours. Alternatively, how about you add an extra day and discover all of Salzburg’s secrets?

Tour character

You cycle along the river Salzach and through numerous nature reserves, past countless lakes with options for a swim. There are few longer ascents between the Trumer Lakes and Salzburg or Lake Mondsee. You cycle always on well-maintained cycle paths low traffic side streets.
