On tour with the mountain bike
Mountain biking at Lake Traunsee
You love biking and want to do some tours in the Traunsee-Almtal region in beautiful Upper Austria? Congratulations – biking is a popular pastime here and you can look forward to excellent infrastructure and tours of various levels of difficulty. The Salzkammergut offers exciting tours for every level. Around the lakes, over hilly terrain or the challenging version with the mountain bike, for families, occasional bikers, leisurely bikers and mountain freaks.
Mountain biking on the Feuerkogel
Mountain bikers and downhill bikers will find a true baptism of fire on the doorstep of the Berggasthof Edelweiss. Those who dare to go up the mountain by bike can truly be proud of themselves! From the centre of Ebensee, the route goes upstream along the Traun river and then uphill into the terrain. The mountain bike route is perfectly signposted but of course requires solid equipment and a good suspension bike. Towards the summit, you will have to overcome gradients of around 20% over certain passages, but the view up here certainly compensates for all the effort. After the tour up to the Feuerkogel, a drink at the Hotel Edelweiss is more than deserved.
Downhill slope for pros
Fearless mountain bikers also go down the mountain by taking the unique downhill run which is a true challenge, just like the ascent. This is why the downhill trail is for very trained bikers only. Jumps, bridges and tricky passages demand optimal equipment, much experience and good nerves.
Bike trails to idyllic Salzkammergut lakes
Bike tours to idyllic lakes belong to the most popular tours in Ebensee. And there, hidden among the mountains, special natural gems will await you. Back to Lake Offensee you can take a bike route which is also suitable for children with a few breaks. The route is 37 kilometres in total. The beauty of nature will definitely reward you for the tour and if you are hungry, the restaurant at the southern shore of lake Offensee will come in handy. We can also recommend a tour to the Langbathseen lakes which also requires some endurance due to the hilly terrain. After a few kilometres you will reach the Vorderer and then the Hinterer Langbathsee and will be rewarded with a charming scenery. Those who want to go further can venture on further MTB trails such as the Lueg pass and to Traunkirchen.
Biking with pleasure
Biking at Lake Traunsee
A bike tour to Lake Traunsee is a dream for leisurely bikers. Along Lake Traunsee you can bike from Ebensee to Gmunden via Traunkirchen and Altmünster until you reach the popular inn “Hois’n” at the foot of the Traunstein. Near the inn you will also find a landing of the Traunsee cruise which will give you the opportunity to take the steamboat back to Traunkirchen or Ebensee.
Explore the most beautiful tours in the Traunsee-Almtal region with electric support and reach almost any destination with ease. Our e-bikes will make it possible! Of course we will be happy to give you more information on our bike rental service on the Feuerkogel.
