Salzkammergut Cycle Path


From Mozart to the Waltz

It goes across the gently rolling landscape of the lakes of the Salzkammergut, starting in the Mozart city of Salzburg. After you have been able to cool off in the turquoise blue lakes, you continue to Upper Austria. From Linz you follow the Danube through the Strudengau to the beautiful Wachau, until you go on a tour of discovery in the waltz metropolis of Vienna.
