Bike tours around Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Scherer: perfectly located for cyclists in Salzburg
By bike, you can experience the city of Salzburg from new perspectives. In the most cycling-friendly city in Austria, cycling is a real pleasure and directly from Hotel Scherer at that – Salzburg's cycling promenade by the Salzach is just one minute away. 23 marked cycle trails run through the city, and you can also undertake bike tours into the glorious countryside of Salzburg.
Bike rental for your bike tours
Feel like a spontaneous bike tour? At Hotel Scherer, you can rent bikes for a fee. A bike rental shop with repair service is also located very close to the hotel.
Tip: combine a bike tour with sightseeing in Salzburg! For example, you can reach Hellbrunn Palace in the south of the city by bike in approx. 40 minutes via the Salzach cycle trail and the car-free Hellbrunner Allee.
Tauern Cycle Trail
The Tauern Cycle Trail runs from Krimml in the Pinzgau, Salzburg region to Bavaria's Passau. The 310km-long route (270km-long when taking the Tauern Cycle Trail circuit) runs directly along the Salzach through Salzburg. The Hotel Scherer lies almost directly on the route – making it ideal for spending the night. You can, however, start the Tauern Cycle Trail in Salzburg or just complete part of the Tauern Cycle Trail, e.g. from Salzburg to Oberndorf with the famous Silent Night Chapel (approx. 18km), to Bad Reichenhall (approx. 23km) or to Hallein, the city of salt (approx. 16km).
Mozart Cycle Trail
On this 454km-long circular tour, you can follow in the footsteps of Mozart from Salzburg city into the Salzburg region and neighbouring Bavaria. The stages lead to the Salzburg lakelands, into Chiemgau and through numerous cities worth seeing.
Along the Salzach through the city and into the green countryside
The bike is also an ideal method of transport for brief tours through the city and into the surrounding area. On the left bank of the Salzach, you can cycle to the Salzachsee-Saalschspitz conservation area. At the Saalachspitz, the Saalach joins the Salzach. The Tauern Cycle Trail runs along both banks of the Salzach and you can enjoy a stunning view of the UNESCO World Heritage-designated historic centre of Salzburg.
