Cycling holidays in Upper Austria
Cycling holidays in Upper Austria are so much fun because the nature is so varied. Austria's fourth largest province is traditionally divided into four quarters: The Innviertel is very pristine, is very much characterised by water and provides breeding grounds for many bird species in the Lower Inn European Reserve. The Innviertel also cultivates its reputation as a beer region. The Traunviertel lies in the idyllic centre of Upper Austria. The Salzkammergut with its world-famous lake landscape is part of this diverse region. The Hallstatt-Dachstein-Salzkammergut cultural landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Hausruckviertel in the Alpine foothills is affectionately called Landl by its inhabitants. It is fertile hilly country where agriculture is the main activity. The Mühlviertel delights with its hilly landscape, lush green meadows, mystical forests and unique granite formations. Sweeping views of untouched river valleys delight every cyclist's heart.
The provincial capital Linz impresses with a wide range of culture. The towns of Steyr and Wels should not be missed on your cycling holiday in Upper Austria, nor should the picture-postcard idyll of Lake Traunsee and the associated walk through Gmunden, the imperial town of Bad Ischl and the baroque town of Schärding.Show more Show less
