New City Thoroughfare in Hallein from 2017:
In the course of the re-paving of the old town of Hallein, a new direct route through the historic old town of Hallein could be made for cyclists on the Tauern Cycle Trail. From 2017 you will be able to cycle directly from the Bayrhamer-Platz across the Robertplatz to Pfannhauserplatz directly in front of the Celtic Museum Hallein.
Diversion in Weitwörth:
Between Anthering and Oberndorf the Weitwörth train station (Nußdorf) will be rebuilt from June 2016 to May 2017. The Tauern Cycle Trail which intersects with the railway here will be redirected locally (the old route over the old country road). The local diversion is signposted.
Award for the Tauern Cycle Trail
In March 2016, the Tauern Cycle Trail was re-awarded a 4-star quality bike route award by the ADFC (German Bicycle Association). The Tauern Cycle Trail achieved a very good rating within the 4-star category with 87 out of a possible 100 points!
With this award as a quality cycling route, the success of the lots of work in recent years has been correspondingly “confirmed”, while at the same time this is incentive for further improvements of the route! One thing can only really be taken into account in this award, the unique landscape along the Salzach and Saalach, as well as the exceptional culinary diversity on offer here.
