The SalzburgerLand – Salzkammergut Road Bike Region

Top it off with 29 perfectly sign-posted racing bike tours through fantastic scenery. The result is one of the most varied and interesting racing bike regions in the world. This road-biking region has been in existence since 2010, consisting of the top destinations of Mondseeland, Attersee, Fuschlsee, Salzburg Lake District, and Eugendorf – Bergheim. Ever since then, bikers of every ability and experience flock to this area. Extreme inclines are the exception, but the many small uphills along the side of the water and and over gentle hills mean you will find some variety in altitude.
In addition, 14 specially selected hotel establishments ensure that you will be left wanting for nothing on your cycling holiday.
In this area where, in the winter, snow enthusiasts grace the ski resorts, the rest of the year round you will find a sheer abundance of challenges for road and racing bikers. The area consists of the 8 towns of Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl, St. Johann, Radstadt, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Eben and Filzmoos, which together ensure that you are guaranteed a varied and fun-filled cycling holiday.
