Cycling & mountain biking in Gastein valley
Biking holidays in the Gastein Mountains in Salzburger Land
Cycling and mountain biking in Gastein gets the heart of any mountain bike racing. The Alpine lifestyle Hotel Alpenhaus Gasteinertal stands at the centre of Bad Hofgastein and is therefore the ideal place to stay for a cycling and mountain biking holiday in the Gasteinertal region. There are suitable routes for every ability, as well as shops offering bike hire and e-bike points; a wide range of options for mountain bikers and cyclists in the Gastein Valley.
From leisurely cycle paths through to uphill challenges
The large network of mountain bike routes of varying difficulties attracts tour bikers and uphill fans alike. There are family-friendly cycle paths down in the valley providing ideal tours for leisure bikers or lovely bike rides for the family, like for example the Gasteiner Radweg route (30 – 60 km), a round-trip that takes you on a voyage of discovery through the Gastein Valley, with wonderful views. The interactive mountain biking and touring map of Gastein will help you with tour planning.
There are 12 special tours for very athletic riders, providing variety for bikers and tourers.
The Alpe-Adria-Rad-Trail: From the Salzach to the sea
As well as the Alpe-Adria-Trail long-distance trail, there is also an opportunity to hop on to a bike and tackle the 410 km between Salzburg in Austria to Italy/Grado by bike. A fantastic adventure in nature, the charm of the cycle path and a sporty challenge are particularly inspiring. Numerous sights, natural spectacles and pleasure-packed culinary stations await away from the route. The impressive natural surroundings alone spur you on to top-level performances!
The cycle trail proceeds right through Gasteinertal, where there is also a special route highlight - the 130m Klammstein cycle tunnel.
In the meantime why not treat yourself to a break from your ride in Bad Hofgastein in DAS ALPENHAUS GASTEINERTAL, recharge your batteries in the mountains and relax in our Alpen.Veda.Spa. Wonderfully replenished, you can then continue to your destination packed with vim and vigour.
