You cycle along the main Alpine ridge of Innsbruck on the Innradweg into the Zillertal. In between you can visit small historical towns that offer you beautiful streets and sights. You cycle deep into the Zillertal valley, where you can very soon see the mighty peaks with their glaciers. Then you take a taxi over the Gerlos Pass into the Salzburger Land.
Follow the Salzach, where the Hohe Tauern National Park is on the right and the lovely grassy mountains on the left. You cycle through a still rural landscape with small and large villages. As the valley widens, you come to the beautiful Zellersee, where the snow-covered mountains are reflected.
Now you cycle in the Saalachtal valley past Saalfelden, where you have the impressive Steinerne Meer in the field of vision. Along the route you will find impressive gorges and caves and in Bad Reichenhall a nice old town with some sights. Finally, a highlight, the festival city of Salzburg.
Tour profile: Most of the time you cycle along the rivers and in between there are only minor ascents and descents. You can take a taxi over the Gerlos Pass. The routes are signposted and easy to find. For this tour a good basic condition is completely sufficient.
