Cycling holiday in the Salzkammergut

(Mountain)biking is fun here!

The Fischerwirt is the ideal starting point for adventure-packed mountainbike/racing bike/cycling tours through the Salzkammergut.

Adventure-packed mountainbike/racing bike and cycling tours.

Lean into the steep turns and feel the fresh alpine pasture air in your face whilst zooming down the mountain. This sounds just that bit too adventurous to you? It's a good thing that our region is not only equipped for lightning fast mountainbikers, demanding racing bikers but also for more leisurely cyclists. With routes of 20 - 200 km there is something for everyone: flat, hilly or moutainous - along the lake or down into the valley, choose the cycle route you desire. From flat routes to extreme climbs there is everything.

Mountainbiking in Faistenau

With the mountainbike up to the alpine pastures. . .

The countless metres of ascent that you will be able to conquer  during your holiday will be a challenge. With a rewarding goal in front of you the mountainbike tour will be particularly fun. In our valley there are a good 20 mountain pastures that you can reach optimally by mountainbike. Once you have got to your destination you can build up your strength with freshly prepared alpine pasture specialities and refresh yourself with chilled spring water. Once you have recovered it's back down into the valley - via steep downhills or, in more relaxed fashion, via mountainbike-trails.

Mountainbike routes in the region

The most popular mountainbike routes:

  • from the Hintersee up to the Oberwiesalm (Oberwies alpine pasture) - Faistenauer Schafberg
    You start the tour setting off directly from the hotel in the direction of Tiefbrunnau. Very idyllic it is too along the Tiefbrunnau road to the turn off for Schafbachalm. From the Schafbachalm (1,038 m) carry on going up to the Oberwiesalm (1,350 m). Take the same route for the return as far as Schafbachalm and then turn right to cycle down the Sonnberg forest track. Once you have arrived at the Hirschpoint bathing place, cycle along the right-hand lake shore and carry on until you reach your home for the holidays, the Fischerwirt Hotel where the circular bike tour meets itself once again.
  • from Hintersee to the Genneralm in the Osterhorn group
    From the hotel you go past the Hintersee to our neighbouring village, Hintersee. From there carry on to the end of the valley, to Lämmerbach. Here you ride up the forest track until you reach the alpine pastures (1.295 m) underneath the Gennerhorn. I you want to and you still have strength left, you have the possibility of walking up to the cross on the summit in half an hour from here. After a recuperative rest in a rustic alpine hut, it's back down into the valley and all the way back to the Fischerwirt.
