Cyclists are particularly welcome in Salzburg: Numerous signposted cycle paths lead through the city and along the banks of the Salzach. No wonder, then, that the city of Mozart has already received several awards as Austria's most bicycle-friendly city. But also in the surrounding area you will find great cycle paths across wide meadows, through beautiful avenues and through dense forests. A perfect bike ride takes you from one of the idyllic surrounding towns through the picturesque landscape into the historic center of Salzburg - in this way you combine nature, activity, and culture.
We have selected eight rides from the surrounding towns of Bergheim, Wals-Siezenheim, Grödig, Elixhausen, Elsbethen, Anthering, Eugendorf and Großmaign to take you to the most beautiful sights in the old town of Salzburg. The venerable city has a lot to offer: Castles, fortresses, narrow alleys of the old town, classic airplanes and Austria's largest private brewery await you. Each of the Tours starts in one of Salzburg's surrounding towns and leads you along beautiful cycle paths into the city.
Thanks to well-developed cycle paths and little ascent, these are real pleasure rides. Just choose your favorite route, hop on your bike and enjoy Salzburg and its surroundings.
