Cycling holiday 10 Lakes & Sound of music

In the footsteps of empress Sissi & co.

Mondsee, Attersee, Traunsee, Wolfgangsee, Wallersee, Trumer Lakes and many more! The well-known lakes in the Salzkammergut are particularly popular because of their natural and cultural diversity. Every lake tells its own story: from Empress Sisi to the Trapp family, you will learn some anecdotes about famous Austrian people.

You’ll find crystal-clear water as far as the eye can see and dreamlike shorelines for cooling off. All this awaits you on your cycle tour through Salzburg and Upper Austria. The enjoyment you’ll find makes the Ten Lakes Tour a unique and unforgettable cycling trip. 

The tour starts and finishes in beautiful Salzburg. Via Gmunden, Hallstatt and Bad Ischl you cycle to the ten lakes. The rolling hills allow you to rest during the downhill before the next slight incline is due. Do you love to combine experience and relaxation? Jackpot! Then the Ten Lakes Tour is perfect for your next bike adventure - because with each pedal you get closer to the enchanting lake scenery.

Itinerary

Today, you will cycle along the Salzach to Oberndorf (birthplace of the Christmas carol "Silent Night"), Arnsdorf (the “Silent Night” Museum), Michaelbeuern (abbey), and further on to the Trumer lakes area (Lake Obertrumersee, Lake Mattsee, Lake Grabensee) and partly also to Lake Wallersee. A shorter, direct version is also possible!

 

approx. 50 to 60 km

On the third day, the tour will take you through the nature reserve of the Egelseen lakes to Schleedorf. Later, you will continue to the idyllic Lake Irrsee. You stay overnight close to Lake Mondsee (castle, smokehouse).

 

approx. 35 to 40 km

Afterwards, you will cycle through the Aurachtal valley to Lake Traunsee with Gmunden (castle Orth, ceramics factory), Altmünster (bicycle museum), and Traunkirchen ("Fishermen’s Pulpit").

 

approx. 15 to 80 km

By train you will go from Lake Traunsee up to Obertraun by Lake Hallstättersee (Dachstein mountainous ice caves). Later, you will continue along the lake to Hallstatt (home to "the loveliest lakeside location in the world" and the oldest salt mine). Today’s destination is Bad Goisern or one of the neighbouring towns.

 

approx. 15 to 25 km

Via Bad Ischl (Emperor’s Park, Emperor’s Villa, Empress Sissi’s Teahouse) you will cycle along the Ischler Ache river to Lake Wolfgangsee. You will cycle through places such as St. Wolfgang (White Horse Inn, parish church, cog railway on to the Schafberg), Strobl, Lake Abersee (Zinkenbachklamm gorge) and St. Gilgen - the Mozart village on Lake Wolfgangsee.

 

approx. 40 to 45 km

On the seventh day, you will follow the cycle route to St. Gilgen ("Mozart Village"), the short hiking trail into the Tiefbrunnau, past the Hintersee lake, and the Strubklamm gorge into the Wiestal valley (dam). You will go through the Glasenbachklamm into the Salzachtal valley. Just before reaching Salzburg, it is worth visiting the castle Schloss Hellbrunn (park, zoo, water games).

Tour character

On the banks of the lakes and at the river Salzach, the routes are completely flat. In between, the terrain is mainly hilly. Depending on the option chosen, approximately one third of the route is on cycle paths and almost all of the rest goes through fields and along forest paths, farm roads, and quiet side roads. There are only a few short sections on roads with more traffic.
