At a glance

The Alps region of Austria is famous for its blue-sky days, fresh mountain air and picturesque scenery. Sight to see include the Krimml Waterfalls, Europe’s highest, quaint farming villages and medieval towns, all framed by mile-high mountains. The Alps are also home to silver mines, Swarovski crystals, fortresses, and castles, all of which bear testimony to the region’s rich history.

Why cyclists love it

In this region, cyclists ride on well-marked, asphalt, on nearly traffic-free paths. The cycling is often flat, downhill, or on rolling hills, which are great for families. There are also tours for more experienced riders who seek a challenge on short, steep ascents and undulating hills. The scenery is unforgettable, and the locals are delightful. The weather is warm from May through September, making that the ideal time to plan your visit.
