Mountain biking in the Hohe Tauern

1000 km of well-developed cycling and mountain biking trails are intertwined like a finely 

woven net over the mountain pastures and mountain forests, right up to the peaks of the

Hohe Tauern mountains. With your bike you can access breathtaking vantage points, streams cutting through the mountains and mystical waterfalls. Those who choose to take on 

the impressive peaks by bike can experience the smells and sounds of the Alps at their best. 

From the gentle aromas of moss in the forests to the singsong of the insects in the rich 

grasslands of the alpine pastures. The multitude of trails from the short and flat right up to the ten hour uphill tours make the Pinzgau region one of the most charming regions in Austria!


The Tauern bike path

This famous bike path runs past lakes and attractions along the Salzach river including numerous natural monuments and sights including the Krimml waterfalls.



Mountain bike Tours

Mountain bikers can choose from about 100 tours. There is so much to discover: from the 

breathtakingly scenic valleys of the Hohe Tauern National Park to the dream routes in the Alps. 

Traditional huts, trails, wild gorges and waterfalls. In one of the impressive high valleys, or for the more advanced close to the glaciers, bike paths can be found. The impressive views to the valley 

and the feeling of enlightenment are the rewards.
