Whether you enjoy easy cycling or prefer rushing down the trails – in SalzburgerLand everyone has the best views on two wheels. The Tauern Cycle Path is one of the most popular and varied cycle paths in Europe. It combines places of power such as the mighty Krimml Waterfalls or the mystical mountains of the Hohe Tauern with international venues such as the Mozart city of Salzburg. For those who prefer aiming high, you can climb the countless forest roads with a gravel bike. And all those who are looking for the thrill of downhill biking can really let off steam in SalzburgerLand. Here, there are not only first-class downhill trails, but also world championship bike parks. For example, in Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, the largest bike region in Austria, which has several times been the World Championships venue and meeting place for the worldwide mountain bike elite. For enjoyable rides and a kick on tricky trails - that's what we live for!
The last metres to the summit are done, the feelings of happiness are indescribable and the panoramic views are breathtakingly beautiful. Up here the silence is broken only by a few scattered cries from the jackdaws. There is almost nowhere else where you experience the ‘here and now’ as you do here. Anyone who has ever discovered the mountains of the Salzburg Alps on a bike and felt a real summit success knows this feeling exactly. You can not only experience the wonderful mountains and Alpine pastures while soaking up their energy on a mountain bike, but also with an E-Bike.
In the road bike saddle
Down in the valley, road bike racers cycle their circuits through the valleys, alongside the lakes, rivers and streams, and over impressive mountain passes both individually and in small groups. There is almost no other sport which helps you switch off, and let go of stress and everyday life in just a few hours. But not every road racer sees this sport as a way to relax. More and more athletes of all ages take on the challenge of any one of the many competitions or racing series and train throughout the whole season on these highlights. This of course also applies to the growing group of triathletes.
Crazy Bike Park action
Wild and crazy riders are everywhere in the bike parks and on the trails. These bikers test their limits here in Freestyle and Freeride biking. But they don’t just test their limits; they also go beyond them towards the world’s best. These world elite also often meet here in the Salzburg Mountains for internationally recognised competitions, and show that the limits are there to be extended.
Biking and cycling in SalzburgerLand is one of the most beautiful things you can do in the mountains and valleys, the cities and along the lakes and rivers. Regardless of whether you want something more relaxed or if you are hoping to experience an absolute adrenaline kick on a bike. Bikers and cyclists can find everything that belongs to a successful cycling holiday also away from the bike paths, bike parks, trails and roads, with the bike hotels throughout the county and all the bike-friendly businesses. You now just need to get on and ride off!
