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. Promise!

Details about the cycle tour "Ten Lakes & Sound of Music"

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.

Highlights of the cycle tour through the Salzkammergut

  • ‘Silent Night’ village of Oberndorf: If you cycle along the Salzach, you reach the village of Oberndorf. It’s the birthplace of the Christmas carol Silent Night. If you feel like more culture and history, you’ll be happy. If you cycle a few kilometres to Arnsdorf, you’ll find the famous Silent Night Museum.
  • Schafberg: Climb up the mountain on a rack railway train. The Schafberg is known as a fabulous lookout point and lies in the centre of the province of Salzburg. When you reach the top, you have a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding lake district of the Salzkammergut!
  • Imperial Villa, Bad Ischl: Bad Ischl is the gateway to the mountains and alpine lakes in the Salzkammergut. But that is far from everything! This place is also home to the ‘Imperial Villa’ the beloved Austrian Empress Sisi and Emperor Franz Joseph I enjoyed in the summer months. Tip: The famous tea house of Empress Sisi is definitely worth a visit.
