Bergheim - Oberndorf - Rupertiwinkel

A pleasant, family-friendly tour, mostly on bike paths alongside the Salzach and Saalach. In Oberndorf, you cross the Salzach bridge to Laufen. This bridge is one of the most beautiful in Austria and was constructed at the turn of the last century. This bridge takes you to the now Bavarian town of Laufen (a Salzburg community until 1816), whose picturesque Old Town is definitely well worth a visit.

From Bergheim to Obertrum

The Alpine Foothills in Salzburg’s Flachgau region are the work of the Ice Age and the Salzach Glacier. The glacier pushed its tongue out into the plain, creating in the process the basins for those lakes which make today’s Salzburg such a paradise for bathers. This tour takes you into the very heart of this idyll, while also allowing you to combine a leisurely bike ride with some swimming and fun on the shores of the Obertrumer See. On especially festive occasions, beer from the Sigl brewery - rather than water - flows from the village fountain in Obertrum.

Distance: 41,8 km
Time: 2 hr. 35 min.
Elevation Change: 330 m
