Austria's glittering lakes

With its wonderful world of lakes and cultural diversity, the Salzkammergut is a feast for the eyes straight out of a picture book. Discover Oberndorf, the birthplace of the Christmas carol "Silent Night", take the cog railway up the Schafberg with a fantastic view of the beautiful lake landscape and visit the "Kaiservilla" and the famous tea house of Empress Sisi in Bad Ischl. On this circular tour you can either start in the festival city of Salzburg or comfortably at the Trumer Lakes.


Fortress Hohensalzburg
The 900 years old fortress is the emblem of the town, Europe’s largest and best preserved Burganlage.

Castle Mirabel
Castle Mirabel is located in the heart of the town.  With its beautiful castle garden and view of the fortress, it attracts visitors every season.

Tour information and bike handover. If you arrive at Trumer Lake District, the day tours below will be postponed accordingly. The tour then starts with the route described on the 3rd day and finally leads back to the Trumer Lakes District via Salzburg. If you arrive early, you may take a city tour of Mozart's city and visit Mozart's house.

You cycle along the Salzach to Oberndorf, the birthplace of the Christmas carol “Silent Night”. A little further and you can visit the Silent Night Museum in Arnsdorf. After a flying visit to the Benedictine abbey in Michaelbeuern, the path leads to the Trumer Lake District (Lake Obertrumersee, Lake Mattsee, Lake Grabensee) and partly to the Lake Wallersee. A shorter variant to your stage destination is also possible.

Through the nature reserve of the Egelseen lakes you reach Schleedorf and on to the idyllic Lake Irrsee, which with the surrounding moors offers a habitat for many endangered animal and plant species. Visit the Mondseer Rauchhaus open-air museum, which is a vivid monument to old farming life. Overnight stay in Mondsee on the lake of the same name.

If you arrive in July and August, a boat trip across the Lake Mondsee and the Lake Attersee to Weyregg awaits you. Outside of this time, the route is cycled and leads along the Lake Attersee and through the Aurachtal to the Lake Traunsee. Visit the ceramics factory in Gmunden, where every piece has been handmade since 1492. Also worth seeing is the small but fine wheel museum in Altmünster and the Fischerkanzel, a masterpiece of wood carving in the parish church in Traunkirchen.

Today you take the train from Lake Traunsee up to Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt. Marvel at the spectacular ice sculptures in the Dachstein ice cave on the Krippenstein before you cycle along the lake to Hallstatt, the "most beautiful lake town in the world". It is also worth taking the ride on the Salzbergbahn up to the Salzwelten Hallstatt (oldest salt mine) with a skywalk and a spectacular view of the lake. The stage destination is Bad Goisern or one of the neighboring towns.

Today is packed with highlights. Bad Ischl attracts visitors with its Imperial Park, Imperial Villa and Sisi's Tea House. You roll along the Ischler Ache to the Lake Wolfgangsee. In St. Wolfgang, a visit to the Weißer Rössl is a must. The cog railway takes you up to the Schafberg with an incomparable panoramic view and then on to St. Gilgen, the "Mozart village on Lake Wolfgangsee".

Marvel at the deep blue Lake Fuschlsee before you reach the crystal-clear Hintersee through the Tiefbrunnau, which invites you to swim. Through the Strubklamm you reach the Wiestal with its long reservoir and pass the Glasenbachklamm into the Salzach Valley. Just before Salzburg it is worth visiting Hellbrunn Palace with its imposing park, the famous trick fountains and the zoo. The destination of your day's stage is the festival and Mozart city of Salzburg with its numerous sights.

Time flew by. We would be happy to book you an extension in beautiful Salzburg.
