May 19th - October 4th, 2020

Like a picture book, the Salzkammergut unfolds before the visitor.
In December 1997 the “Hallstatt - Dachstein / Salzkammergut” region joined the list of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. The UNESCO recognized a big part of the Inner Salzkammergut as a World Heritage site worth to be preserved. With 76 crystal clear lakes, a magical mountain world with rich green Alpine pastures contrasting jagged rock faces up to the 3000 m high Dachstein glacier the Salzkammergut offers amazing diversity and beauty for its visitors.

General information

The cycle tours don’t have any technical difficulties, there are only very few ascents! A reasonable fitness level is necessary to enjoy this trip as well as cycle equipment like sneakers, rucksack, sun- and rain protection, comfortable sports cloths, jacket, jumper aso. The routes are suited for trekking bikes - mostly they are asphalted cycle paths, a few stretches are gravel and forest paths.
