The gravel bike tour around the Sarstein leads you along streams through romantic forests to dramatic kitschy views of mountains and lakes. Along pure waters you ride your gravel bike through the Dachstein Salzkammergut and the Ausseerland.


The water, which accompanies you on the gravel bike round constantly, whether as brook, river or lake.

The Holiday Region Dachstein Salzkammergut and the Ausseerland create the ideal connection for gravel bikers in the Salzkammergut. On forest and municipal roads, you pass through part of the Inner Salzkammergut, always accompanied by water, most of which comes from the Dachstein glacier. On the gravel bike tour around the Sarstein, you make good kilometres and metres in altitude on your personal gravel bike account and enjoy the federal states of Styria and Upper Austria from their most beautiful sides.

About the tour:

Start at the market square in Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt in the direction south. On the sidewalk and bike path you reach St. Agatha after crossing the B 166. At the intersection after the Agathawirt Country Hotel, turn left in the direction of Halleralm. Passing the shooting club house, you will soon turn right into the "Leislingstraße" along the Zlambach. On this forest road you already master a few meters of altitude. In the Ausseerland it leads you past meadows, which bloom in spring in full beauty - daffodils as far as the eye can see. Enjoy this sight during a short detour to the Ruin Pflindsberg.

The path continues along the signs down to Altaussee. On the right you would reach the Lake Altaussee after a few minutes of driving. A short break on the water, in view of the beautiful mountain scenery with the Trisselwand on the opposite side of the lake, would also offer itself here.
However, the gravel bike tour around the Sarstein leads you to the right along the "Altausseer Straße" to Bad Aussee. Here you turn left into the center and keep right again at the next intersection (post office) in the direction of railway station Bad Aussee. You will pass the geographical center of Austria. This is located in the park of Bad Aussee.
Shortly after the railway station Bad Aussee, you will again master a few meters of altitude at the beginning of the "Koppenstraße". Follow this road for a few kilometers before turning right onto the bike trail "Koppentalradweg". Alternatively you can follow the road to Obertraun.
A small detour to the Lake Koppenwinkl with its impressive fauna and flora and a short break at the Inn Koppenrast are highly recommended.
Then you follow the road to the beach resort. On hot summer days a jump into the lake will bring you the desired cooling.
Afterwards, you continue along the east bank bike trail along the shores of Lake Hallstatt. This trail is used by cyclists and hikers - please be considerate!
After a few minutes you will reach the railway station Hallstatt. Afterwards, another highlight of the tour awaits you. On the suspension bridge you will cross the deepest point of Lake Hallstatt with approx. 125 m. There must be time for a little memory photo here!
Shortly after the suspension bridge, the bike path separates from the hiking trail and continues above to the Uferwirt Seeraunzn. The sunny terrace invites you to rest and strengthen yourself. Afterwards, the path continues again for cyclists and hikers together.  Via the villages Obersee and Untersee the road leads you further to Au. From here you follow the sidewalk and bike path along the B 166 to the entrance Bad Goisern South and cycle on the "Obere Marktstraße" back to the starting point.


Here you will find a lot more information about gravel biking.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.

 

The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.

 

The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.

 

We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.

 

Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.

 

The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.

 

2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.

 

The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.

 

The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.

 

3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.

 

We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.

 

4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:

 

Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.

 

a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.

Moreover, we have no influence on the design or contents of the websites to which hyperlinks on www.salzkammergutshuttle.at lead or from which hyperlinks lead to www.salzkammergutshuttle.at.
