Salzburg, the city of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and also known for Trapp Family, is the starting point of our bicycle journey through Salzburger lake area and the Salzkammergut. The home of the Salzburger Festspiele invites the visitor to a stroll along its river Salzach and through the old part of town. You experience the echoes of the last centuries in its many historical places of interest. The charming hilly landscape around Salzburg, with its moors and numerous lakes with water of potable quality, will accompany you for the week of your trip. This tour is a delight for all sense and you will ask yourself: In which lake will I have a swim today again after the bike tour?
These variant is similar as Basic tour, but it is extended via lake Holzöstersee. It doesn't leads to lake Traunsee, because the abbreviation is via Weißenbachtal, Bad Ischl and further on to lake Wolfgangsee. This variant is without any boat and train rides! The tour lasts 7 days and 6 nights and is a great variant if you want to do a short trip.
