Salzburg & Salzburg Country
Discover Mozart's metropolis!
For more than 20 years, Salzburg has been awarded the UNESCO World Heritage List - the cultural capital is thus a city of particular value to humanity.
Convince yourself of it and start your bike tour in the birthplace of the famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Be sure to try the Mozartkugeln named after the composer, which can be bought on every corner of Salzburg. Especially in the summer months, a visit to the city of Mozart is recommended. The Salzburg Festival takes place here for several weeks, transforming Salzburg's old town into a large stage. But not only in terms of art and culture has this city a lot to offer.
Many bike tours start in Salzburg. Probably the best-known cycle path starting in Salzburg is the Mozart Cycle Path. In the footsteps of the composer, the cross-border cycle tour leads through beautiful natural landscapes, past historic buildings and interesting places that Mozart visited on his travels. The bike tour takes you along the Salzach and across the Chiemsee into the Inn Valley. From there you cycle over the northern part of Tyrol and the small German Corner, back to the city of Mozart. Who wants to have a bit more of nature, should spend his cycling holiday in the Salzkammergut. Surrounded by the foothills of the Alps and the northern Limestone Alps, this region is best known for its breathtakingly beautiful lake landscape. Altogether, the Salzkammergut encompasses around 80 larger and smaller lakes, which invite you to swim and linger with clear drinking water and natural bathing beaches.
On a bike tour through the beautiful landscape you drive past the Wolfgangsee, which is known for the operetta "Das Weisse Rössl am Wolfgangsee", the legendary Mondsee and the Traunsee. There lies the ceramic city of Gmunden, the "Gmundner Keramik" is known around the world. Incidentally, Lake Attersee, which attracts holidaymakers from all over the world every year, is one of the largest lakes in Austria.
Definitely a fantastic area for a cycling holiday!
