Mountain bike & racing cycle
Driving pleasure with fantastic panorama
The special charm lies in the totally different mountain ranges all around the Pinzgau. In the north, there are the Kitzbühel Alps with very easily accessible and relatively easy to drive grass covered mountains, in the south, there are the majestic High Tauern with their gleaming glaciers and the highest peaks in Austria. Whether from the Wildkogel, the Resterhöhe or the Hörgeralm – with almost all tours, you’ll be blown away by the mountain views between Grossglockner and Großvenediger.
Mount – pedal off – have fun…
The probably most famous mountain in Pinzgau is the Grossglockner with the world-famous High Alpine Road. The athletic challenge is fantastic on the most beautiful panoramic street in the Alps. But other Alpine passes in our region can make bikers’ hearts leap for joy as well.

Tauern cycle path
Most of the Tauern cycle path is asphalted, so a unique driving pleasure is guaranteed. Because of these markedly comfortable driving conditions, the cycle path is very well suited for families as well.
Another plus is the signposting – it stretches out in both directions across the complete path and helps with the orientation. To ease the planning of your bicycle tour on the Tauern cycle path, we are providing you with a route map!
The part in Upper Pinzgau of the Tauern cycle path between Krimml and Zell am See is 69 km (43 miles) long and invites to fantastic day trips – also combinable with bathing fun at the Lake Zell, a glacier visit to the Kitzsteinhorn and a lot of other possibilities!
The Tauern cycle path has a length of 270 km (168 miles), or 310 km (193 miles) if you’re driving from Krimml to Passau. There is an altitude difference of 600 m (750 m until Passau).
We advise you to plan the path counterclockwise, since the path has a slight gradient downhill that way. You’ll only face hills occasionally.
