A tour through the Salzkammergut (Salzburg Lakes Region) is perfect for cyclists looking to enjoy Austria’s quiet countryside. Jagged peaks tower above azure lakes and alpine foothills. Scenery includes moorlands, pastures, imperial towns, and quaint villages.

Why cyclists love it

The region is known as a cycling paradise thanks to the extensive network of well-marked, well-maintained routes (some are rail-trails). The terrain is quite varied—from flat lakeside trails to hilly meadows to outright mountains—for those who want the challenge. You can break up your cycling with boat rides, and even take your bike on the boats!
