Cycling in the Salzburg district

Cycling in the Salzburg region is always an adventure

The Salzburg region is known for many features, but not everyone is aware that some of the best cycling opportunities in the country can be found just outside the city of Mozart. It's true! Beautiful rolling hills, quiet side roads, spectacular forest paths and, for those who want them, steep mountain climbs. What more could the cyclist's heart desire?

If you'd like to get out and pedalling after your conference at the Landgasthof Kirchbichl, you'll love the Salzburg region. You don't even have to exert yourself if you don't want to – many tours and cycling routes follow pleasant cycle paths for many kilometres without any need for stress or hurry. Start your exploration of the most beautiful cycling routes in the region right outside the doors of the Landgasthof Kirchbichl.

Pedal power or e-biking

The former Ischlerbahn railway line offers a blissfully relaxing pathway into the Salzkammergut region. The well-known Salzkammergut Cycleway takes you to the most famous sites in the spectacular cycling region. And if you don't want to have to work too hard, an e-bike is a great option. There are plenty of stopping points where you can charge up the bicycle, and many restaurants and huts offer charging facilities for bikes as well as the opportunity to recharge your own batteries.

A lap of the Dachstein, please!
