The Tauern Cycle Tour in Austria

Day 1: Individual arrival to Salzburg

After your arrival, discover the historic Old Town, which thanks to its ornate house facades, sacred buildings and palaces, as well as the cathedral, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. In a very small area you can admire buildings from different architectural eras. Visit Mozart's birthplace in Getreidegasse or take the opportunity for a shopping spree.

Day 2: Salzburg – Golling, approx. 30 km

You leave Salzburg in a southerly direction. The Salzach is your constant companion. After just a few kilometers, you will reach Hellbrunn Palace with its famous Renaissance fountains. The rest of the way takes you past numerous natural monuments, steep rock faces and impressive gorges. At the end of the stage, you should pay a visit to the spectacular Golling waterfall.

Day 3: Golling – St. Johann in Pongau, approx. 35 km

You'll get over the moderate climb to Pass Lueg right at the beginning. You will be rewarded with a magnificent view of the Tennengebirge. The Salzach valley narrows here and you pass the Salzachklamm gorge. To the right and left of the path, the over 1000 meter high rock walls rise into the air. The route continues to Bischofshofen. A few kilometers from today's overnight stop is the famous Liechtensteinklamm.

Day 4: St. Johann in Pongau – Kaprun, approx. 50 km

At a brisk pace you will reach Bruck an der Großglocknerstraße. The high alpine road as an impressive high alpine mountain road leads to the Großglockner. With its 3798 m it is the highest mountain in Austria. From July on, buses drive up to the Franz-Josefs-Höhe. So everyone can experience the natural spectacle of size, power and eternal ice. Dare to jump into the cool Zeller See. From here it is not far to Kaprun.

Kaprun

Day 5: Excursion to Krimml, approx. 60 km + train ride

The Pinzgau Railway takes you from Kaprun to Krimml today. A visit to the famous Krimml Waterfalls, which thunderously plunge almost 400 meters into the depths here, is a must. Your way through the Hohe Tauern National Park, the largest nature reserve in Central Europe, is characterized by the pristine nature of the high mountains and the colorful mountain farmland. Almost always downhill it goes through small villages and hamlets of the Oberpinzgau back to Kaprun.

Day 6: Kaprun – Lofer, approx. 55 km

You leave the upper Salzach Valley and follow the almost natural course of the Saalach River. The route leads through the valley basin of Saalfelden, the largest town in Pinzgau, and through the famous pilgrimage site of Maria Alm. Also worthwhile is a detour to the Seisenbergklamm gorge, where the Weißenbach stream has dug deep into the limestone cliffs over thousands of years. Another natural monument on the way to Lofer is the Lamprechtshöhle cave.

Saalfelden

Day 7: Lofer – Salzburg, approx. 50 km

Today the otherwise quiet course of the river changes. At Unken it breaks through the Steinerne Meer and is in this section an Eldorado for whitewater rafters. As it continues, you reach the little German corner with the spa town of Bad Reichenhall. Here the river forms the natural border between Germany and Austria. Through the Saalach floodplains you reach Salzburg. From the fortress Hohensalzburg you have a fantastic view over the city.
