Lush green meadows, blue glistening mountain lakes, fantastic views, idyllic alpine pastures, rustic huts, and wonderful trails and paths – the Salzkammergut is known for its beautiful landscape, which you can discover in a whole new way on an e-MTB. The ‘BergeSeen eTrail’ takes you 391 miles (630 km) through this very special region in 10 stages. With 47,570 feet (14,500 m) of altitude difference, the route is quite a challenge, but one which you can easily conquer with the help of an e-bike.

Brand new this year: Get the BergeSeen pass before your trip, collect stamps at all stations along the route and send the completed pass to Salzkammergut Tourismus at the finish! All participants will receive a BergeSeen eTrail bell and also have the chance to win a KTM eMTB and a two-night vacation in the Salzkammergut.

As well as spectacular nature, the Salzkammergut is home to numerous cultural highlights. The Emperor and his wife Sissi spent a lot of time in this region for good reasons. In summer, artists and intellectuals would often holiday in the mountains here. As you ride, you will find traces of the region’s rich history.

There are numerous opportunities to hop off your bike and explore: plunge into a cool swimming lake, marvel at the stunning Dachstein peak, or take a boat trip across Lake Wolfgang. You can also reward yourself with regional specialties such as varied cheeses produced locally, sweet Salzburg dumplings, or ‘Schneeballen’ (snowballs) pastries. After spending the day on your bike, you can relax in the spa towns of Bad Ischl and Bad Goisern.

With spectacular mountains and lakes as well as delicious food, the Salzkammergut is a wonderful place to discover by bike. For an idea of what awaits you there, check out this video:

    After a rather quiet second stage, there is a lot to do today: around 52 kilometers, more than 1,400 vertical meters and above all a few crunchy trail and isolated sliding passages challenge you and the battery of your bike equally. Today the Zwölferhorn is waiting for you. The view from there is phenomenal and the short way to the summit at 1,521 meters is a must because of the only summit photo on this tour.Once at the top, you can enjoy the wonderful view and look forward to the most beautiful part of the tour. The descent via the "Shared Trail" is really fun, just remember that you can meet hikers here - mutual respect is a matter of course. You have to descend briefly at various pasture gates and possibly avoid one or the other cow flat (or even its originators). The finest mountain feeling!

    Stage four on the BergeSeen eTrail is technically easy, but it's still a tough one, because 70 kilometers and around 1,890 meters of altitude are a challenge. Good battery management is important for this stage: it is best to take a spare battery or at least a charger. Not that it gets tight in the end. If you are already there, pack yourself an extra portion of provisions, so you can take a break on the way to a small snack.Before you set off, you can get your circulation going with a dip in Lake Wolfgang. Then you tackle the first long climb: 800 vertical meters in one go are a small challenge. For that there are also several rewards above. Once at the top, you have a last beautiful view of Lake Wolfgang, and there are also several huts on the Postalm where you can take a break.

    Stage 8 of the BergeSeen eTrails is quite a challenge. In addition to the distance and the height meters, a few technical uphill sections will require you, for which you need a little fitness and skill. It may well be that you sometimes have to push a piece. But that is also part of an adventure in the mountains and in return you will be rewarded for your efforts!To warm up you roll over the promising brine path, from which you can enjoy impressive views of the mountains again and again. It leads you directly to Lake Traunsee and to Traunkirchen. The view of the lake provides a real "wow" moment. When the Johannesberg chapel appears majestically on a rock, you have your next postcard motif for your holiday album. Past the Bartelkreuz, the lion from Lake Traunsee, there is a wonderful view of the magnificent Traunstein, the Grünberg and Traunkirchen after every curve.
