Dachstein is an iconic name. The very literal roof of Upper Austria has been a popular destination for ambitious mountaineers for decades. Yet underneath snowy peaks, in shaded forests and on lush meadows, there’s a vast network of single trails waiting to be discovered on two wheels. The green slopes around lake Hallstatt are ideal for a mountain bike holiday: Beautiful day trips offer marvelous trails with scenic outlooks and the next Alpine hut is never far away. Fresh fish and mountain cheese are just some of the treats you are likely to indulge in here in one of Austria’s culinary hotspots. For those of you who like it fast, there’s a mountain bike park in Gosau, the Bike Arena Gosau, which is the ideal training ground for perfecting your curve technique! Whether you’re up to an athletic challenge or you want to take it easy, this part of Austria is certainly the perfect destination for a holiday with your bike.
