Dachstein circuit - pure biking pleasure

A nature experience between 5,100 and 7,800 metres in altitude is offered by the Dachstein Circuit, with a choice of 184 to 269 kilometres. The Dachstein Circuit is the crowning glory of the Salzkammergut mountain bike holiday, the highlight for professionals and hobby bikers alike. Ideally suited for a long weekend, the Dachstein Circuit is available as a package deal including luggage transfer.

Every year, more and more enthusiastic bikers follow the call of the Dachsteinrunde. Not surprising, because the unique backdrop with the majestic mountains around the Dachstein and the crystal-clear lakes of the Salzkammergut invite you to experience all these beauties for yourself on your bike. Whether it is the curious person who is on a multi-day stage tour for the first time or the experienced top athlete - everyone gets their money's worth on the Dachstein circuit! Whether on the classic routes in blue and red or on the longer ones in black, whereby the latter is clearly more demanding in terms of sport.


The blue variant

The ideal introduction to the adventure of touring biking.

From Bad Goisern on Lake Hallstatt, the route goes clockwise around the imposing Dachstein plateau: from Ausseerland via the Viehbergalm into the Ennstal, up to Ramsau and back to Lake Hallstatt via Salzburgerland.

The red variant

Slightly more demanding than the original blue route, the red route leads in the opposite direction along the same route.

The climbs are technically somewhat more difficult. On the first day you cycle from Hallstatt to Gosau am Dachstein, where you are rewarded with a magnificent mountain backdrop. The route then continues to Ramsau and back to the beautiful Salzkammergut via the sweaty stoves and the Ausseerland.

The black variant

Ambitious bikers can thus increase their altitude meter account and the route makes higher demands on riding technique.

Don't worry - this doesn't mean that the black route is only suitable for extreme bikers: along the blue variant, black loops lead to extra metres in altitude. That's why the Dachstein circuit is also ideal for couples and groups with different levels of ability, because despite partly different routes, the same stage locations are always reached.
