Austrian Lakes Cycling

Our popular ten night cycling holiday in the Austrian Lakes is fantastically varied with something to suit travellers of all ages. It's a glorious mix of spectacular scenic views, gentle shoreline routes and swimming opportunities galore. The cycling is graded as 1-bike rating, but you can extend your routes on all days.

Every stop brings new discoveries such as St Wolfgang's antique cog railway to the summit of Schafberg, Mozart's museum in St Gilgen, and Mondsee's frescoed high street; the church here was the location of the famous wedding in The Sound of Music! When you fancy a change from cycling, local buses and boats shuttle between delightful lakeside villages making exploration easy. Regional highlights include Emperor Franz Josef's summer residence in Bad Ischl (he declared war on Serbia here, which led to WW1), Gmunden's 'floating' castle, Seeschloss Ort, and its porcelain town hall bells, and an unforgettable paddle steamer on Lake Traun below spectacular mountain peaks, not to mention a trip to Salzburg itself.

Our hotels are extremely friendly and provide a wonderful contrast throughout your holiday, from the centrally located Hotel Leitnerbrau, and the lakeside retreat in Gmunden, to 4-star luxury with swimming pool and steam baths in Bad Ischl. We have included eight evening meals on the holiday, leaving you free to choose from one of Mondsee's many inviting restaurants.

Day-by-day itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Mondsee

Arrive at your hotel in Mondsee. There's time to explore then enjoy a soak in the spa before dinner.

Day 2 - Mondsee to St Georgen 28km/17.5mi or 37km/23.5mi

Pedal past yachts and wooden boathouses this morning on Mondsee's north shore. It's then onwards through rolling pastures dotted with country churches, before the triangular white sails scoring the blue surface of Attersee move into view and you descend to the lake shore. Then head inland passing a deer farm and roadside stalls piled high with bright local produce, before arriving at the Hotel Blumenhof in time for dinner.

Day 3 - At St Georgen

Enjoy lunch like a local, with freshly smoked fish on sale along the lakeshore, or take advantage of the fabulous swimming pool complex. Then perhaps take a boat ride to the pretty village of Weyregg beneath craggy mountains on the eastern shore.

Day 4 - St Georgen to Gmunden 43km/27mi or 53km/33.5mi

You'll enjoy views of the 1000m high peaks on the east shore of Attersee as you freewheel down to Schorfling, whose castle was painted by Gustav Klimt with its reflection mirrored on the lake surface. Fields of wheat fringed with poppies and cornflowers pass by before you coast into Gmunden with its cobbled marketplace and painted buildings. Dinner on the terrace of the hotel is delightful, with Gmunden's lights shimmering above the surface of Traunsee.

Day 5 - At Gmunden

Take a trip on the Gisela, the last coal-fired paddle steamer, also used by Archduke Franz Ferdinand.The cable car to the top of Grunberg (984m) offers wonderful views at the summit, where you look down on Gmunden's esplanade and the romantic Seeschloss Ort, a 'floating' castle on the lake dating from the C17.

Day 6 - Gmunden to Bad Ischl 19km/12mi or 30km/19mi

Today you take the Traunsee boat from the pontoon below the hotel to Ebensee on the south shore. It's worth taking the cable car up to the Feuerkogel Peak for spectacular views. Then you cycle back along a beautiful riverside route, criss-crossing the sparkling River Traun, and on through scented pinewoods to Bad Ischl. Perhaps relax in the opera house gardens before returning to the hotel for a swim.

Day 7 - At Bad Ischl

There is simply so much to see and do in and around Bad Ischl: the imperial spa, ice caves, thermal salt baths, cable cars, people-watching on the riverside esplanade or a day trip to Salzburg. If you've time, we suggest you extend your holiday to spend four nights here.

Day 8 - Bad Ischl to Strobl 16km/10mi or 29km/18.5mi

Explore the Emperor Franz Josef's former holiday home, the Kaiservilla, before setting off along the banks of the River Ischl. Sunlight sparkles on the water as you pass tiny shrines hidden in the pines below Leonsberg and Bleckwand peaks. Lakeside Strobl has a popular beachfront for a cooling swim, or join a boat cruise on the lake.

Day 9 - At Strobl

It's easy to spend the day in Strobl with its summer toboggan run, cable cars, watersports and animal park. Alternatively, visit the fairytale city of Salzburg, a Baroque jewel with a UNESCO recognised historic centre which is just an 80 minute bus ride away.

Day 10 - Strobl to Mondsee 30km/19mi or 43km/27mi

Keeping close to Wolfgangsee's southern lakeshore, a level cycling track through a tiny nature reserve brings you into lovely St Gilgen. Visit the Mozart museum, or take the cable car up Zwolferhorn for stunning 360° views. In the afternoon, coast downhill to Lake Mondsee, before returning to the hotel in time for a pre-dinner drink.

Day 11 - Leave Mondsee

Please note that cycling helmets are compulsory in Austria for all customers under 12 yrs. As we are unable to provide these, we strongly recommend that you bring your own.

Extra nights and stop over hotels

If you'd like to extend your trip with extra nights at the start or end, or if you'd like to arrange a stop off point en-route, then we recommend the following hotels.

Hotel Austria, Vienna   (3 star)

Hotel Austria, Vienna

The location of the Hotel Austria could not be more central in Vienna. The Fleischmarkt is within walking distance of all the city centre attractions, and the opportunities for dining out are plentiful in the evenings.

The hotel is squirreled away up a small alleyway so looks quite unassuming. It is an enormous traditional building with a grand spiral central staircase. The public rooms on the ground floor are all very high with an atmosphere of faded and comfortable rather than modern grandeur. Ancient maps of the city hang behind reception and reds and crimsons form much of the décor, with antique furnishings dotting the lounge from where you can access the internet.

Bedrooms upstairs are off long corridors, and have high windows and dark wooden furnishings and velvet chairs. All come with satellite TV, minibars and tea and coffee making facilities.

Hotel NH Salzburg, Salzburg   (4 star)

Hotel NH Salzburg, Salzburg

The 4 star NH Salzburg is a modern hotel, located just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the city. It is quite a substantial size with 140 bedrooms, and is a good option in Salzburg for its excellent location, perfect for both the historic sights in the old town and the shopping in the newer part of the city.

The traditional light stone exterior of the building gives way to a very modern interior, which is carried throughout the hotel with a spacious, light marbled lobby and café where snacks are served throughout the day on the ground floor in reception.

Bedrooms are smart and professionally presented either in burgundy and cream colours, or light pastels, and furniture is modern and of a very high standard.

Markus Sittikus, Salzburg   (4 star)

Markus Sittikus, Salzburg

The 4 star Markus Sittikus is a beautifully presented hotel, based in an 18C building with a mustard façade located in a quiet side street not far from the Mirabell palace, just a 15 minute walk from the old city.

Inside the hotel the décor is attractive and individual, with bold colours like mustard yellow and red tartan in the comfortable bar area, and some colourful murals painted on the walls throughout the building. Public rooms have period furniture, and the upbeat interior; combined with the personal attention you receive from the friendly staff, make a stay here particularly memorable.

The hotel has 39 rooms though it feels smaller, with television (CNN/BBC), direct dial phones and hairdryers. Each one is individually decorated with attractive colour combinations and solid wooden furniture, in keeping with the age and status of the building.

It is also one of the few hotels in Salzburg to have a garden to relax in, if you are looking for some respite after doing the sights.

I was lucky enough to win this cycling in Austria holiday and it was just amazing. Not something I would have thought of doing but may even do a similar thing again one day. Flights and transfers were great. The Reps were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. They took luggage always at next hotel quickly too. The electric bike I had was such a boon as there were a few more hilly bits than expected and the instructions of the routes were amazing and very detailed - well my partner did brilliantly following them so we never got lost. He had an ordinary bike which was a bit ropey but he is a cyclist so sorted it. The scenery was amazing and cycle paths brilliant. As for the hotels they were a delight, each one had something special. Two had wonderful views from our rooms. The whole experience has been magic. Thank you so much Headwater and Silver Travel.

The landscape was stunning, the bikes very comfortable and easy to handle with plenty of gears! The hotels were very comfortable and in the main, well located. The food was good and varied from traditional Austrian fare to more adventurous haute cuisine. The routes were at times rather challenging hill-wise but then, this is Austria.

This was our 8th Headwater cycling holiday and we have thoroughly enjoyed all the others but it has to be said this was the best. Scenery was stunning and the hotels excellent. First day's cycling was very hilly as we had been told and on hindsight [being now the tender age of 67 and 68 respectively] myself in particular should have taken the option of an electric bike but only for the first cycling day if that had been possible. Pushing the bike uphill did allow for time to enjoy the views and the bonus was freewheeling downhill which was brilliant. Reps Colin and Jill gave excellent information for rest days. Unfortunately we were unable to take the option of extra days at Bad Ischl but would suggest this would be a good idea for those able to do so. Once again thank you to Headwater for another excellent holiday and fantastic memories.

Small hotels with very friendly service and good food. Some of the cycling was perhaps a bit above one bike level although with my fantastic e bike it was a breeze apart from down and up the steps at the underpass as the bike iwas quite heavy. Excellent reps, really knew their stuff and very helpful. We went wrong occasionally with the route notes but not drastically. The off road cycling was superb but there was quite a bit on roads - not too bad as Austrian drivers were generally very careful with bicycles. As Headwater is based in the northwest, perhaps they could offer more direct flights from regional airports: we found a really good time match with a Manchester flight to Salzburg rather than having to travel down to London. Otherwise another really first class holiday with the company.

After the first day, which is quite hilly, this is a very easy cycle route through beautiful countryside. The Austrians that we met were particularly friendly, and eager to try out their English. Headwater's equipment, instructions and luggage transfers were all very good. The only negative comments we have are that 1) the half board arrangements resulted in a fairly monotonous diet across the week, with limited choice and 2) two of the hotels were a few miles out of the villages they were attached to and a long way from the lakes. The Bergrose hotel provided outstanding food, so we could forgive the distance from the lake!

Nervous start on first day but great views and overall the experience could not have been better. James was very helpful. The Grunberg stood out for us due to its location, conviviality and welcome to our son who is 7. But interestingly he loved all the hotels and loved the Bergrose for the swimming pool and table tennis. We enjoyed all the hotels. The food was excellent throughout - much more varied than I had expected- and the Bergrose stands out for freshness and excellence. Wonderful cycling although a few nervous moments. We cannot wait to do more.

Great cycling, excellent maps, good routes. Hotels were possibly a bit quiet and could have been in better locations. Why St Goergen, when there were good lakeside hotels nearby? In the town hotels the noise from the traffic was really loud, so windows had to be closed leading to stifling heat. . (Bad Ishcl and St Georgen). Maybe a hotel in Strobl would have given more things to do in the evenings, or what about St Wolfgang? Smoking laws not great in Austria......would prefer non smoking hotels.
