Ten Lakes & Sound of Music

Picture this; being out in nature, covering lake shorelines and soaking in wonderful natural landscapes. On this cycle tour through the Salzkammergut and past the Trumer Seen Lake you will do just that. Not far from Salzburg, you will find a magnificent panoramic view of the scenery. Being at the foothills of the alps, you’ll experience a pleasant and hilly setting.

You’ll pass through meadows and moorlands on your cycle route to Oberndorf, which is the birthplace of famous Christmas carol “Silent Night”. You’ll pay a visit to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl, a total of ten lakes and sightseeing spots such as the Schafberg Mountain and Orth Castle. This tour gives you the chance to have fun, experience nature and be a tourist learning the local culture – you could describe it as a real-life fairy-tale!

Itinerary

Welcome to the amazing city of Salzburg! Receive your welcome brief and bike fitting. For those arriving at the Trumer Seen lakes, the daily tours are correctly shifted in the itinerary (the tour for these travellers will begin on the third day, cycling the Salzburg – Trumer Seen lakes route on the final day)

Set off on your bike along the Salzach to Oberndorf, the home of world-famous Christmas carol “silent night”, where it would be rude not to visit the “Silent Night” museum “Arnsdorf”. You will also have the chance to see the Michaelbeuern Abbey. There is an abundance of lakes to be seen, namely Lake Obertrumer See, Lake Mattsee, Lake Grabensee and part of Lake Wallersee. There is also the option to take a shorter, more direct route.

Now it is time to pass through the nature reserve of the Egelseen lakes onto Schleedorf. After soaking in the gorgeous views, you will head to the tranquil Lake Irsee. You’ll settle down for the night in Mondsee (in a castle!)

For those arriving in July and August you’ll kick off day 4 with a boat trip to Weyregg, those travelling in other months will cycle along lake Attersee. Later on you will head to Lake Traunsee via the Aurachtal Valley. You can visit Gmunden where you can see Castle Orth, the bicycle museum Altmünster and Traunkirchen with the Fishermen’s Pulpit.

Leave Lake Traunsee by train and head to Obertraun at Lake Hallstättersee. Here you can see the “Dachstein” mountain ice caves. Afterwards you will go alongside the lake to Hallstatt, which has been branded “the loveliest lakeside location in the world” and boasts an ancient and very famous salt mine. Your end destination for the day will be either Bad Goisern or one of the nearby towns.

Your journey to Lake Wolfgangsee will not be short of delights. You’ll first travel via Bad Ischl where you’ll see the Emperor’s Park, Emperor’s Villa and Empress Sissi’s Teahouse. Then continuing along the Ischler Ache, you’ll pass places such as St. Wolfgang (White Horse Inn, parish church, Cog Railway), Strobl, Lake Abersee (Zinkenbachklamm gorge) and St. Gilgen – the Mozart village of Lake Wolfgangsee.

On the last day of your adventure, you’ll get onto the cycle route to St. Gilgen, aka the “Mozart Village” and on to the unbelievably blue lake of Fuschlsee. From there you will head past the Hintersee Lake and the Strubklamm Gorge into the Wiestal Valley/dam. You’ll also pass through the Glasenbachklamm into the Salzachtal Valley. Just before arriving in Salzburg, the castle Schloss Hellbrunn is well worth a visit, here you will find a park, zoo, and water features. Then you will arrive in your destination of Salzburg, a city famous for its festival and for world-famous composer Mozart. You can see numerous attractions such as the fortress and old town.
