SunBike Tour: Salzburger Seenland & Salzkammergut - Basic Tour

Refreshing lake bike tour in the footsteps of the Trapp Family (Sound of Music)

Salzburg, the city of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is the starting point of the journey. The home of the Salzburger Festspiele invites the visitor to a stroll along its river Salzach and through the old part of town. You experience the echoes of the last centuries in its many historical places of interest. The charming hilly landscape around Salzburg, with its moors and numerous lakes with water of potable quality, will accompany you for the week of your trip. This tour is a delight for all senses and you will ask yourself: In which lake will I have a swim today again after the bike tour?

TOUR PROFILE
You cycle out of the Mozart City on flat bicycle paths along the river Salzach. The rest of the route between the lakes is slightly hilly. The majority of the tour consists of bicycle paths and side roads.
