The Tauern cycle path
This 270km long route between the Krimmler Waterfalls and the city of Salzburg, along the banks of the Salzach and Saalach rivier, offers numurous side trips to magnificent natural wonders, castles and cities. The route can be done in both directions, but the way from Krimml to Salzburg is gently downhill with only 2 uphill parts. You will find more information and a description of the route on the official website www.tauernradweg.at
You can use the local train and bus service to take you and your bike to Krimml, at the head of the valley, where the Tauern cycle route starts. Please note that reservation is required.
Many biketours of all levels await you around Niedernsill. Read more about them on the informative website www.tauern-bike.at or download the interactive tourmap here.
For freestyle and downhill fun you go to the epic bikepark in Leogang.
