Motorcycling on the Hochkönig

On your bike over the alpine roads in Salzburgerland

Already on your arrival at the Bergheimat Hotel you will be able to experience a foretaste of what to expect from the Salzburgerland Mountains. Located on the Mandlwand Road in direction of the Arthurhaus the arrival is an adventure in itself: sharp bends wind up the road and on top of it: beautiful views. And there are lots of these alpine roads here in your holiday region!

Every start and every finish of a day tour start with a mountain tour – that's quite an incentive for every passionate biker!

In close vicinity of your holiday region you will find the Dientner Sattel and towards Saalfelden you will find the ÖAMTC driving technique centre, just in case you want to improve your driving skills.

Hochkönig Tour (ca. 240km)

Motorcycling in Austria

Around the Hochkönig Massif, over two impressive mountain passes, past the picturesque Lake Zell with views over the Kitzsteinhorn and even to Kitzbühel in Tyrol. That is the Hochkönig Tour that you should definitely not miss out on with your motorbike.

The route: Mühlbach - Dienten - Maria Alm - Saalfelden - Lofer - Pass Strub - St. Johann in Tyrol - Kitzbühel - Pass Thurn - Mittersill – Zell am See - Bischofshofen - Dienten - Mühlbach

Plan some breaks along the way. The views along the panoramic roads are so stunning that you won't have any choice than to get off your bike and take in the unique mountain world. Zell am See is perfect for a break: enjoy a coffee on the lakeside and stroll through the town – Zell am See is well worth a visit – especially on your motorbike!

Tour to the Großglockner (ca. 188km round trip)

A tour to the Großglockner is wonderful and will stay in the memory of every biker. A gorgeous panoramic road leads up to Heiligenblut. On this part of the road you will have to pay car toll.

The Großglockner route: Mühlbach - Dienten - Lend - Bruck on the Großglockner Road - Fusch - Heiligenblut (1,288m)

Tour to Salzkammergut (ca. 160km round trip)

Go on a trip to Salzburgerland with its wonderful lake landscapes. This tour takes you via beautiful alpine roads through the windy Wiesental valley and then, if you fancy, to the lakes Fuschlsee, Wolfgangsee, Mondsee or Attersee.

The route: Bischofshofen - Golling - Kuchl - Hallein - Wiestal - Ebenau - Hof bei Salzburg – Lake Fuschlsee – Lake Wolfgangsee - Lake Mondsee
