The best season

The best months are May, June, September and October. In July and August, the towns on the Salzkammergut lakes are in high season, which means more traffic on the roads and problems finding accommodation for one night. In July and August it is recommended to book by the day in advance - the local tourist associations will be happy to help you find them.

On the saddle, ready, go...

Lying in a flower meadow, the scent of hay in your nose, listening to the tinkling of cowbells, the bikes a few metres away in the grass: this is how enjoyable it is to explore the Salzkammergut by bike. Whether on a sporty, leisurely or family tour.
