    Salzburg and the 7 lakes

    Explore Austria with its beautiful lakes!

    • The "Salzkammergut" is known as the capital of The Sound of Music and belongs to one of the most charming regions in all of Austria: blue lakes, imposing mountains, green meadows and forests truly create a fairy tale landscape.

      The pristine lakes Mondsee, Attersee, Traunsee and Wolfgangsee are the most well known bodies of water in the region.

      Other highlights on this cycling tour certainly include a former and highly regarded Austrian emperor’s summer-residence Bad Ischl and the Music and Festival City of Salzburg.

    • Bicycles inclusive panniers:

      The offered bikes are touring bikes with an aluminium frame and kitted with responsive brakes and gears. Plus: mudguards, trip computers, comfort gel saddles, flat-palmed grips, Schwalbe Marathon anti-puncture tyres.

      You can choose between the following bikes:

      • 7-speed-bike with hand brake and backpedal brake
      • 21-speed-bike with hand brakes
      • E-bikes unisex, also for children (min. 130cm)

      with 28" tyres in different frame dimensions for ladies and gents.

      All bikes are equipped with a one-sided Ortlieb pannier (20 liters) and a handlebar bag/room.


      By popular demand, we have now invested in a considerable number of e-bikes, much favoured by cyclists who love the great Outdoors, but prefer to let the bike take the strain.

      With an electro bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern E-bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.
      Please note that it won’t be possible to fix the handlebar bags on some of our E-Bikes.

      Bicycle breakdowns

      can happen even with new wheels and by best servicing. With the rental bikes you will receive repair vouchers which you can present in our authorised workshops along the way. Should a repair not be possible, please contact our service number! In a few hotels/guest houses we have some bikes on stock if you need to change them during the trip.

      Private bicycles

      You are welcome to bring your own bicycle. It is adapted especially to your needs. Do not forget to bring a repair kit with all necessary tools such as: keys, reserve tube and lock. Please check your own bicycle for operability upon arrival.

      For the return journey to Passau we recommend the reservation of the bus transfer or the train ride - some trains offer bicycle-parking possibilities, however those are limited and a reservation is necessary.

      Salzburg Lakes

      Mostly quiet country roads, some dedicated cycle paths next to busy roads. Some hills, one berg! Nice locations for the hotel stops, but the road book led us to the brewery in Obertrum, where we thought we were staying. Overall, an enjoyable 6 days.
