With its unique landscape along the Salzach and Saalach, as well as the exceptional culinary diversity on offer, the Tauern Cycle Trail is just wonderful.
The water masses tumble into the depths. With a view of the Krimmler waterfalls, adjust your helmet one last time, jump on the bike and cycle off. The "Tauernradweg" trail stretches over 300 kilometres, at the foot of the impressive world of the Hohe Tauern, along the largest rivers in the county, to Salzburg and further on to Passau. If you are looking for a unique experience, you should take a closer look at this trail.
The Tauern Cycle Trail 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. The Tauern Cycle Trail has more than enough of all this. If you are a cyclist, you can expect to experience something that will not be forgotten.
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.
While sitting in a café taking in the atmosphere, you can decide whether you want to cycle back to Zell am See via Lofer, or to continue along the Salzach and the Inn up to Passau. No matter what your choice is, the Tauern Cycle Trail is an experience you will not quickly forget and you will be guaranteed to return.
