The tour starts in the pretty village of Krimml, high in the Hohe Tauern National Park, close to Europe’s highest waterfall which plunges 1,250 feet in three remarkable cascades. The cycling route follows the Salzach Valley on dedicated paths through pine forests, picturesque villages and flower-strewn meadows. As you approach Kaprun, the snow-capped peaks of Austria’s highest mountain range come into view, at 12,400 feet the Grossglockner is an awesome sight.
The route continues along the lakeside through stylish Zell am See, then onwards to Lofer and Salzburg. The tour ends in the river city of Passau. The bike paths on this tour are well detailed and signposted. The route leads through quiet villages on paved paths and country roads. A few very brief sections you will ride on unpaved paths. This cycling tour is also suitable for families.
