Visible from afar, from whichever direction, the Traunstein, the mountain that forms the gateway to the Salzkammergut, invites you into the breathtaking landscape of the region. So what could be more natural than to get on a bike to explore the picturesque and varied region more closely?
The Salzkammergut Cycle Path invites you to enjoy and get to know the Salzkammergut. From the leisurely stretches to the demanding variant, there is everything for every taste and condition.
The special thing about it is that the term enjoyment and history is in the foreground alongside the sporting aspect and that the region has scenic attractions that make cycling an unmistakable experience.
Because the route around the Traunsee also leads to 4 smaller lakes, past a stalactite cave, the infamous Gmundner ceramics factory and to grandiose vantage points (such as Gmundnerberg or Grünberg).
Furthermore through nature reserves, to hospitable rest stops and accommodations, or for the daredevils on a downhill route from the almost 1,600 meter high Feuerkogel almost 6 kilometers into the valley.
A detour into the Almtal to the Almsee and back over the Offensee to the Traunsee is definitely worth it.
Hundreds of cycle paths meander through Upper Austria. Whether classic bike path, e-bike tour or racing bike route. Practical circular cycling routes are also included. Choose your favorite tour here that will also take you to the Traunsee-Almtal region.
