The stage BergeSeen 6 starts at the tourist office in Bad Aussee and leads about 900 m along the Ischler Straße upwards, crossing the main road Salzkammergut Bundesstraße, in order to get to the road Wilhelm-Kienzl Straße. After 200 m we turn to the right to the Teichstraße, which leads us straight to the Narzissenhotel. From the Narzissenhotel we go to the main road B145 and turn to the left for 300 m more. Then again we turn to the left to the Fischgasse. We follow the Fischgasse to the crossing to the Sommersbergseestraße, which we take from then on straight ahead. After 500 m we leave the tarmac road, before it goes into the forest. 90 degrees to the left now and the trail leads us 300 m more on a gravel road till the next turn. There we turn to the left and again to the left after 200 m following the signs "S800" through the forest Sarsteinwald. Always straight ahead we carry on until we leave the forest and we shall pass a farmstead on our left (746 alt, km 5,5). On the Stapflweg straight ahead, we turn to the right in order to get to the Sarsteinstraße (706 alt, km 6,1). The Sarsteinstraße we shall leave again after about 900 m and take from then on the idyllic path Austegweg. The Austegweg is a simple trail, which will get more wide after a short distance. After about 1 km this path leads us to the river Koppentraun.
Upstream along the Koppentraun we reach the road Koppentalstraße and after about 1,9 km the train station in Bad Aussee. Straight ahead over the river we turn at the first possibility to the right (641 alt, km 10,2) into the Sießsreithstraße, which we follow about 1 km. Before we reach the main road B145, we turn to the right, over the bridge, to get to the cycle path of the Koppenalmstraße. After 1,3 km in a left-right turn (681 alt, km 12,5) over the river and further upstream in direction to Bad Mitterndorf. Shortly after the fishponds to our left the trail turns to the left in direction to Ödensee (769 alt, km 16,5). Here there is the possibility to shorten the tour. We follow the Ödenseestraße till the restaurant Kohlröserlhütte on a tarmac road and go around the lake from the right side always following the signs. After about 1,6 km straight ahead we take the Alte Ödenseestraße, which we shall leave again by the first chance after 500 m to the right (778 alt, km 20,6). The road leads us now upwards. After 700 m we turn to the left (848 alt, km 21,3). Now the trail takes us effortless through the forest and after about 6,8 km there is the possibility to turn to the left in direction to the Steinitzenalm for a stop for drinks and snacks. Or we carry on 3 km more on the Almgrabenstraße until the end of the forest (790 alt, km 31,1). At the accommodation Sportappartments we turn to the right, take the path Kraglweg to the road Pass-Stein-Straße L729, which will take us to Bad Mitterndorf. In Bad Mitterndorf we follow the signs "S800", which leads us to the right in the center of the village. In the center bellow the church in a sharp right turn we turn left and take the Kochalmweg (803 alt, km 36,1) in direction to the Kochalm, where the tarmac street turns into a gravel road. We stay on the Kochalmweg and carry on always straight ahead. After 3,9 km we cross the river Salza. 1,4 km further on the way to our left there is the mountain pasture Salza Almen. Soon we reach the highest point of the tour in 1205 m. Now already 46 km are behind us and we are looking forward to a speedy downhill to Grundlsee. Always follow the signs "S800 BergeSeen 6" through the forest passing the Tendlkogel. There is a gate before we leave the forest, be careful there (717 alt, km 52,2). There we turn to the right and take the Gösslweg. From now on the tarmac road brings as 7,6 km along the Grundlsee. After the Seehotel Grundlsee we turn to the right upwards into the cycle path, which leads directly to Altaussee.
The Ausseerland offers countless photo scenes. The lakes, such as the Grundlsee, invite with its natural beaches. Also a side trip to the mysterious Toplitzsee will be an enrichment for your tour.
For a successful, accident free and exciting day you will find tips for planning before the tour here.
Please note that any MTB tours can always be done with proper equipment.
As new figures on the playing field of mountain and recreational sportsmen, we E-MTB riders have a special responsibility to behave appropriately.
In Graubünden bikers and hikers share the paths. A project that should set a precedent. But this can only be done with mutual respect. Black sheep throw us back years.
With common rules of play, we ensure that the forest will continue to provide a unique recreational and living space as well as jobs for everyone in the future.

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.
The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.
The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.
We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.
Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.
The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.
2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.
The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.
The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.
3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.
We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.
4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:
Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.
a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.
b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.
c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).
It is obligatory to provide first aid!
d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!
Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.
e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.
f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.
g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!
h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!
i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.
