We start our journey in Salzburg, the festival centre and Mozart’s birthplace. Picturesque lakes, turquoise blue water, snow-capped peaks and Austrian culinary delights as well as a perfectly developed cycle path network await you on this tour through the Salzkammergut. In the past, many places, for example Hallstatt, could only be reached by ship or on small mule paths. As a result, specific traditions, cultures and characteristics have been developed in the individual regions which we will discover. Salt was the white gold at that time and everything revolved around this valuable property. We will certainly also dive into this part of history and culture. Last but not least we will visit the beautifully located ‘Kehlsteinhaus– The Eagle’s Nest’, before heading back to Salzburg.
