Biking in the Alps

So Many Beautiful Biking Routes! Hard to Describe – Must Be Experienced

The Austrian Alps are said to be something like a paradise, from several points of view. If you are not into mountain hiking, then swop your hiking boots for a bike. The Altenmarkt-Zauchensee region is inviting for cycling to discover the beauties of the surroundings on bike routes in the summer holidays. Many trails stretch through the valley. They are easy, undemanding, well-marked and over 2 000 km long.

Dedicated sportsmen may go biking in more difficult terrain: in forests on mountain ridges where great routes of up to 120 km in length await mountain bikers. Experience the Alpine peaks from a different point of view by trying both the easy and more demanding routes. And experience the perfect holiday in motion. During a biking trip, one circles the lakes and mountains, villages, settlements, towns and many sights boasted by the Salzburg region. Of course, there are stops for cyclists to recharge their batteries, relax and then continue biking. Take a mountain bike, road bike, trekking bike or even an electric bike on these excursions. You don’t own a bike? No problem - you can hire a bike at very affordable prices from local rental companies. This region is very suitable for all types of bikes.

Ennská (Enžská) cyklostezka - etapa 01 Z Ennsradweg Flachauwinkl do Schladming

The Enns Cycle Path is worth mentioning: this is the bike route whose first stage leads among others around our HOUSES. By its nature, it definitely encourages both experienced cyclists and beginners on electric bikes. A variety of restaurants along the route provide charging stations. The reward for several uphill climbs will be a glimpse of the impressive landscape of the Dachstein mountain range, as well as a tour of Salzburger Land, Styria and Upper Austria. Then a pleasant ride to the Enns River can be enjoyed to explore the romantic valley, local villages and historical towns such as Radstadt, Schladming or Steyr.
