With 957 altimeter is the Loser bike tour in Altaussee a very respectable bike tour with a mountain top finish that offers a very nice view on goal by the Loser mountain restaurant.

Because the road is constructed on the south side of the loser, you sweat much during hot summer days. Especially from the middle of the Loser cycling tour, there is no shadow on the street. The view from the Loser of the surrounding mountains of the Salzkammergut - Ausseerland is therefore very good. The Loser bike tour ends after 17 km by the Loser Mountain Restaurant.

On the way back from the Loser, it's easier for you if you drive a few miles in the direction Grundlsee and then, according to Google Map, turn right at the saddle - Radlingpass. Directly from Bad Aussee on Radlingpass although it is shorter, but also a lot steeper.

The Loser in Altaussee in the Styrian Salzkammergut is the symbol of Ausseerland. The name " Loser " comes from the Middle Ages. At that time the inhabitants very often hike on the Loser to listen (in the local dialect "losen"), whether battle noise is heard from the enns valley.
