Tauern Cycle Path
Mountain Biking in Salzburg
The Tauern cycle path, a 270 km or 310 km long route, is perfectly suited for everyone who wants to explore nature on two wheels, and it runs from Krimml to Passau and thus connects the Alps with the Danube. Along the Salzach river or the Saalach and Inn rivers you can bike on cycling paths or calm side streets through the brilliant nature. No other cycling route begins so spectacularly as the Tauern cycle path in Krimml at Europe’s highest waterfalls. The only incline is at the headwaters of the Salzach. The effort is soon rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Hohe Tauern. The pleasant roll downwards from the saddle to Lake Zell is a delight! A decision must be made in Kaprun at the latest: whether to continue to the city of Salzburg along the Saalach or the Salzach.
Unless you are riding through both fluvial valleys and beginning and ending in the city of Salzburg. Along the Salzach you’ll find the Großglockner High Alpine Road and Hohenwerfen Castle as well as the world-famous Eisriesenwelt (the world’s largest ice cave). Marvels of nature await you in the Saalachtal, such as the Lamprechtshöhle, the Seisenbergklamm and the Vorderkaserklamm – an idyllic expedition through the villages of Weißbach, St. Martin, Lofer, and Unken. It is of course also possible to cut straight to the picturesque leg of the journey when you and your family stay with us at Hotel and Restaurant Frohnwies. An absolute must for all cycling fans!
