Safety informationROUTE: Due to the largely downhill gradient (only a few ascents), an anti-clockwise direction is recommended. Approx. 70 % of the cycle route is on tarmac surface. 90 % runs along cycle paths or quiet back roads. Suitable for touring bikes and trekking bikes, but only to a certain extent for racing bikes. Mountain bikes allow you to explore additional alpine detours.

On the edge of the National Park Hohe Tauern, you cycle along the river Salzach; both the Glockner-Kaprun reservoirs and the Großglockner mountain offer for a wonderful excursions. More comfortable, we continue to the reservoirs of the Pongau Salzachkraftwerke, where in recent years beautiful cycling routes have ensued. The wild and romantic Liechtensteinklamm, the Eisriesenwelt the largest ice cave in the world and the castle Hohenwerfen are all sights one should miss under no circumstances! Past the romantic Gollinger waterfall the tour continues to Hallein, the ancient celtic and salt city. A visit to the salt mine is mandatory!
From afar you can see then the Fortress Hohensalzburg. Overlooking Salzburg's old town with its large squares and winding streets: the most beautiful view is directly from the bike path along the river Salzach.
Those who chose the route via the Saalach Valley are also able to enjoy this sight. On the completely new cycle path between Saalfelden and Lofer, one reaches the city of Mozart at the Stiegl BB´s Brauwelt (interactive museum). This variant allows also for a magnificent tour.
The Tauern Bike Tour through the quiet Salzach and Inn-Auen continues to the North. On its shores lie the old market town Oberndorf, the Gothic-like Braunau, the millenial Oberberg, the Augustinian monastery of Reichersberg, the baroque town of Schärding, the castle Wernstein and - at the end - the "three rivers"city of Passau.
