As the Salzkammergut cycle path is a circular route, you can, as already mentioned, get on at any point without any problems. The most affordable option is clearly in the city of Salzburg. If you want, you could even travel by plane. However, it is more environmentally friendly by train. Here you will find numerous direct connections from German and Austrian cities.The first stage therefore ends at the Salzburg train station, where the entire tour ends after ten days. First you drive north on the Salzach, but after a short time turn onto the former Ischlerbahntrasse towards Eugendorf. Do not be confused by the signs, because the Salzkammergut cycle path initially runs parallel to the Mozart cycle path.You have already reached the highest point of today's route six kilometers behind Eugendorf - you probably did not notice the climb due to the extremely gentle slope. After you have crossed the hill, you now have the famous view of the striking, steeply falling Drachenwand, the ridge of which marks the border between the federal states of Salzburg and Upper Austria.You follow this view on a slightly sloping route until you finally reach the shore of Lake Mondsee, where today's stage ends in Gries. The view of the rugged Drachenfelswand, which is now exactly above you, is retained until the next day. If you look closely, you may even spot the mysterious dragon hole as it looks down on you.
