The Salzburg district – a paradise for motorbikes

The Federal state of Salzburg surrounds the city of Mozart and offers everything you need for an outstanding holiday with your motorbike.

Up into the mountains – a day trip or longer expedition

Just like hiking or cycling, the nature of your motorbike tour will be determined by the landscape. The lake scenery of the Salzburg region and the spectacular Salzkammergut offer plenty of hills and panoramic water views, while high mountain passes await you in the Berchtesgaden Alps and the High Tauern. The ride along the Grossglockner high-alpine road to the Kaiser Franz Josef Heights is an unmissable highlight of your visit to Salzburg. The High Tauern isn't exactly just around the corner, but the Grossglockner combines well with the Gerlos alpine road, especially if you add in a lap around the Watzmann and Hochkönig peaks.

All good things nearby – in the Salzkammergut

If you're less taken with high mountains than the magnificent natural landscapes of the Salzburg lake district, turn your handlebars and head on down to the Salzkammergut region. Your motorbike tour will combine well with a swim in one of the lakes or a visit to the imperial town of Bad Ischl. Hallstatt and the famous view of the Dachstein peak from the Gosausee lake are not too far out of your way, either.
