The Tauernhof bike hotel offers very special programmes for your bike holiday: A wide range of possible tours for your bike holiday has been compiled already. The level of difficulty of the respective tour, which you can enjoy by bike on your holiday, can easily be identified by the blue, red and black dots. BLUE stands for an easy tour. RED means an intermediate tour and is for bikers with a good basic level of fitness. BLACK stands for difficult and in part very long tours and is for experienced bikers only. Enjoy to explore the Salzburger Sportwelt on your bike!
Easy Moualm at Hons – a really funny guy ;) The warm-up tour for your bike holiday with moderate constant ascent of approx. 440 altitude metres. We ride along the Enns river to Flachauwinkl and take a turn in direction Marbachtal Valley. We stop for a break on the Ennslehenung and return to the Tauernhof.
For your bike holiday, we recommend a mountain bike tour on in part asphalted cycle tracks and in part gravelled agricultural roads without any difficult ascents. Past Galerie Vogelmühle, the route leads to Altenmarkt on an easy cycle track; good for a slow warm-up. As shown on the map, the Winterbauer can be crossed in addition (approx. 200 altitude metres). Most of the ascent to the Moosalm is managed on asphalt, the last kilometre is on a forest road. Once arrived at the top, we enjoy a wonderful view from Eben to the Flachau Valley. The Moosalm scores with many regional specialities, and there is even a children’s playground. Going downhill, we take the forest road to Eben. There is an approx. 15 metres long passage right at the start of the downhill run. It is best for unexperienced bikers to get off the bike here. Past the swimming lake of Eben, we return to Flachau.
On your bike holiday, we recommend a bike tour through a historic town with a refreshing stop. Past Galerie Vogelmühle, we start with the first altitude metres – initially on asphalt, then on gravel. Once arrived at the top, the route leads across a short trail directly to the Sattelbauer. The view to the Dachstein Massif and the Hochkönig is what makes the location of the Sattelbauer so special. The culinary delights of the landlady and the jokes of the landlord, Leo, contribute to a perfect stop and rest. An optional detour from the Sattelbauer uphill to the Lackenalm adds spice to the tour – especially when a fine downhill trail, which crosses the forest road time and again, is waiting as reward. Once arrived at the main road, we return to the hotel where you can recall your bike holiday.
Short mountain bike tour to the Edelweißalm in Wagrain at the intermediate terminus of the "Rote 8er” 8-seater gondola cable car.
A mountain bike tour into the beautiful Filzmoos alpine pasture area at the base of the Bischofsmütze. We start via Altenmarkt and Eben to Filzmoos, a small village surrounded by the Bischofsmütze and the Dachstein. In Neuberg, a district of Filzmoos, we take a turn and reach the forest road after approx. 2 km. Via the so-called Wurmegg, we cross the forest and clearings to the Wurmegg Saddle where the route leads downhill to the Hofalmstraße road. After a few curves and slight ascents, we finally reach the alpine farm area with Unterhofalm and Oberhofalm. After a break and some refreshment, we return to Flachau via Filzmoos.
The right choice for anyone who prefers a more leisurely bike holiday: Easy mountain bike tour to the Sattelbauer mountain inn, with impressive panorama.
The latest of the major Austrian river hiking routes – the Enns Cycle Track – is one of the scenically most beautiful local cycle tracks and is a must in the weekly planner for an extensive bike holiday. We start in Flachau at the Enns Cycle Track and continue through Altenmarkt along the Enns at the outskirts of Radstadt in direction Mandling. Shortly after Mandling, we pass the federal border between Salzburg and Styria. The Enns Cycle Track leads through Pichl and then to Schladming. This tour, with gravel paths and asphalted roads, long straight sections and slight ascents, is especially suitable for families.
