The Tauern Cycle Path

270 or 310 kilometres along the Salzach and Saalach rivers

The Tauern Cycle Path stretches over 300 kilometers, at the foot of the impressive world of the Hohe Tauern, along the largest rivers in the country, to Salzburg and further on to Passau. 

The Tauern Cycle Path should be experienced by every cyclist at least once! Imagine a way to see extraordinary, beautiful, powerful, impressive and almost unbelievable things. A trail that would surely be unique in its diversity. Enjoy the impressive panorama of the Hohe Tauern. Hang your feet in the cool waters of Lake Zell, while the surrounding peaks are reflected in the slightly rippling water. Look up at the entrance to the Ice Caves, the largest ice caves on earth, while you experience the relaxation of the Salzach and the humming of your tires, which you so rarely feel. The old walls of the fortress Hohensalzburg are already visible from afar, which announces the early arrival in the "Mozart City" of Salzburg.

No matter what your choice is, the Tauern Cycle Path is an experience you will not quickly forget and you will be guaranteed to return.
