      Directly at Salzburg Cathedral, the beautiful bike tour goes to Eugendorf. From here you cycle from the city center to the Salzach and cross it on the Müllner jetty, from which you have a unique view of the old town with the fortress Hohensalzburg. You follow the shore a bit to the north and turn at Itzling finally on the Ischlerbahntrasse.The route of the narrow-gauge railway once connected the city of Salzburg with the town of Bad Ischl in the Salzkammergut and became famous because its majesty Emperor Franz Joseph I used it to get into his summer residence. From 1894 on this route a railway traveled for more than sixty years along green meadows, crystal-clear lakes and imposing mountains. After dismantling the train, this picturesque route was opened fortunately for cyclists and pedestrians, connecting the Mozart city Salzburg with Eugendorf.Once in Eugendorf, you can take a long break during which you visit the church and stop in a cozy café or restaurant. Then you drive rested and freshly fortified on the same route back to Salzburg.

      The bike tour on the Gaisberg is a bit more challenging, as there are many vertical meters to overcome and some passages contain loose ground. But especially if you love action, gravel and breathtaking views, this tour is for you.It starts at the station Salzburg Aigen. From here you cycle comfortably to the outskirts, where you reach the foot of Gaisberg. Here begins the first climb. In a large arc you drive around the Gaisberg and pass through lush green meadows and wildly romantic forests. After you have almost completely surrounded the mountain, it finally goes up to the summit. A steep climb leads you to the 1,265 meter high mountain. Here you have earned a break and with the breathtaking view of Salzburg and the surrounding area you can regain your strength. In addition, you can indulge yourself in one of the two inns on the summit with regional specialties.With renewed energy, you then make the descent, which brings you back to the starting point. From the summit you first roll down the same track. At the foot of the mountain you turn off towards Salzburg Aigen and complete the loop around the Gaisberg.

      At the Mozartsteg start the bike ride to Glasenbachklamm. From here you drive through the city to the Botanical Garden. The entrance is free and so you can take a break here and take a stroll through the diverse flora of the garden. After you have swung back to your bike, you roll through the dead straight Hellbrunner avenue, which brings you to the castle Hellbrunn. Here you turn off towards Salzach, which you cross to reach the Glasenbachklamm gorge.At the parking lot of the gorge you turn off your bike, you can connect it to one of the trees. On a walk through the gorge-like valley of the Glasenbach, you can immerse yourself in the wonderful nature of rushing water, cool forest and millennia-old rocks.After this relaxing excursion into the gorge you will get back on your bike and drive to the shore of the Salzach. On the well-maintained bike path along the river you cycle back to the city to the Mozartsteg, the starting point of the tour.

      This almost flat bike ride takes you without detours always along the Salzach along to Hallein. It starts at the Mozartsteg in Salzburg. From here you cycle south on the right bank. At the beginning of the Salzach is still lined with the beautiful buildings of the city. After a few kilometers, they give way to the luscious green of shady trees and you dive into the beautiful nature by the river that accompanies you to Hallein. Here you can take a long break, stroll through the beautiful old town and take a leisurely stop before you make your way back.Rested and freshly strengthened, you then swing back to your bike and drive back to the north on the left bank side. Shortly after Hallein you can stop in the brewery Kaltenhausen. Then it continues along the river. Shortly after the mouth of the Königsseeche in the Salzach you will find the forest bath Anif, where you can cool off on hot days in a beautiful natural environment. Then you return to the Mozartsteg in Salzburg on the wooded shore, the starting point of the tour.

      The legend of the place of pilgrimage Maria Plain revolves around a picture of grace that shows Mary with the baby Jesus. During the Thirty Years' War, the picture was still in the city of Regen in Lower Bavaria and miraculously spared from a great fire. Reason enough to build a sacred place for him when the picture of Mary came to Salzburg in the middle of the 17th century. Today the picture of grace of Maria Plain decorates the high altar of the basilica.The place of pilgrimage on the Plainberg is easy to reach with the S-Bahn from Salzburg and is great to explore with a small hikes. To go with the S11 just to Hagenau. From there the path leads you directly up to the 550 meter high mountain. From the top you have a beautiful view of Salzburg and the surrounding mountains.After you have visited the basilica, you walk along a beautiful forest road along the mountain and slowly back down towards Hagenau. A refreshment stop can be found on the mountain next to the basilica or else in the district of Plain-Kemating.

      You want to get out of the city today? Then pack the swimming trunks and let's get to Wallersee, the largest lake in the Salzburg Alpine foothills. With the S2 you drive to Seekirchen, the starting point of the more than seven kilometers long hike. From the train station it goes directly towards the lake, on the way you come past the pretty castle Seeburg, where today, among other things, is a private university.The path continues along the lake. Cyclists are also on the road in this section, with some respect on both sides, but all can enjoy the path. After just under four kilometers, you reach the natural beach and can here first take a refreshing break.Continue through meadows and fields until you reach Wenger Moor. From the observation deck you have a great view of the unique habitat that is home to many birds and endangered plant species. Not far, then you have reached the place Weng and can go there again with the S-Bahn back to Salzburg.

      In the north of Salzburg you can expect a lot of water. In the district of Liefering you quickly forget that you are still in the middle of the city. Because here you can walk along the Salzachseen and leave the city hustle and bustle behind. The round trip starts at the stop Plainbrücke. With the S11 you can arrive very relaxed.The Salzachseen are several stagnant waters not far from the left bank of the Salzach, which were created around and after 1940 as dredging lakes. First, it was only a large lake, which was divided into two parts when the area was rebuilt after 1967. This hike will take you along the shores of the two lakes and show you the other small waters.Do not forget the bathing suits on a beautiful summer's day: At the Lieferinger bathing lake you can refresh yourself in the cool water and take a long break. After a relaxing walk around the lakes, you will return to the S-Bahn on the banks of the Salzach.
