Neslted amongst green mountains, Attersee Lake dazzles with its bright blue waters. The six Tours in this Collection reveal the most beautiful views of the Attersee, the third biggest lake in Austria. On the way, you can marvel at the picturesque Mondsee and Langbath lakes at the foot of the Höllengebirge Mountains. After spending the day cycling along idyllic river valleys and stopping for a snack on the Eisenaueralm, you can sunbathe on the lakeshore and enjoy a swim.
KABONG – a route like the sound of a gong. In the west of Attersee, great trails connect four villages and spectacular views to form the a round shape. On the Krahberg and Richtberg peaks, you will be wowed by views over the lake and the Höllengebirge mountains. If you would like to get to know this mountain range in more depth, you explore on your bike and visit four lakes. If you prefer to go on a shorter ride, you can visit Hongar and enjoy views to the north. You can also go on a circular trip around both the Mondsee and Attersee which includes lots of highlights.
The trails on the six circular routes are well-developed so you can explore the mountains without much knowledge of MTB techniques. Many of the climbs are tarmaced. You cycle along beautiful, wide forest trails through forests and over mountains. In some places, the path is a slightly narrower. You ride along the lake shore where you can jump off your saddle and directly in the refreshing water. For most the stages, you need reasonably well-trained legs and a good level of fitness as you climb more than 1,968 feet (600 m) in one ride. Some of the longer routes have more than 3,280 feet (1,000 m) of altitude difference, but you can take your time and take a whole day.
The six routes take you up to 3,280 feet (1,000 m) above sea level so you can ride them early in the year and welcome spring between the mountains and water. In the heat of summer, the shaded forest paths and lakes help you to cool off. When autumn paints the leaves, the woods and water glow with warm colours. No matter which time of year you visit, Attersee is always worth a visit.
