The route for this beautiful Dachstein bike tour was chosen so that one should never drive on the highways B320 and B145. The Dachstein cycling tour is 167 kilometers long, but there are no large sail passes, hobby cyclists need for this bike tour also only about 10 hours. If you drive the Dachstein bike tour for the first time you should let the time entirely. I had wonderful weather and there is on the Dachstein bike so many beautiful view points which one can not proceed easily. I often had to stand still for a few minutes to take a picture, or just enjoy the magnificent panorama.

Starting point for the Dachstein bike tour was Trautenfels - Ennstal - Upper Styria - Austria. By Trautenfels to Niederstuttern you drive on the biking trail along the railroad. Caution 2 unbounded crossings. After you drive on the little-travelled country road to Öblarn and by Stein an der Enns until after Pruggern. Without crossing you drive on a side road to Aich/Assach.

On the first small ascent of the Dachstein bike tour we travel through Assach. Between Weissenbach and Ramsau am Dachstein begins the 10 km long climb to Ramsau. First, the slope is only a few percent, but there is also a 3 kilometers long slope of approximately 8 percent. The highest point of this Dachstein cycling can be reached a few miles after Ramsau am Dachstein in Schildlehen with 1217 Hm. The descent to Eben im Pongau - Salzburg province is 25 kilometers long, not steep and contains 4 smaller slopes.

Average Lammertal to the junction for Abtenau, there was the most traffic on the Dachstein bike tour. During the week, driving some trucks. The uphill to St. Martin am Tennengebirge, Annaberg in Lammertal and the longer the Pass Gschütt" in Upper Austria have no special requirements. After a winding descent follows Hallstatt. Hallstatt, Salzkammergut and Dachstein listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Reason enough to lodge in Hallstatt a long break. At Hallstatt there are many tourists and to be sure we should push his bike. The cars drive through a tunnel in Hallstatt and not through the town.

About the very interesting Koppenpass, one continues Bad Aussee on the Dachstein bike tour. At the beginning you will be alerted by a road sign on a 14% gradient. In between there will be even steeper, and a second sign you will read "23% gradient for the next 500 meters". After the climb you're back in the province of Styria and the spa town of Bad Aussee in the Salzkammergut Ausseerland after 5 rather flat kilometers and a small drop.

In Bad Aussee on Radlingpaß there is a one kilometer long climb. After Radlingpaß you go by bike to Kainisch / Pichl. From there it goes again a few meters up to Obersdorf. After Obersdorf you drive on the Salzkammergut Cycle R19 through Bad Mitterndorf, Krungl and Tauplitz back to Trautenfels.

Those who do not have time to stop anywhere, it should take longer breaks in Ramsau am Dachstein, Filzmoos, Hallstatt and Bad Aussee. To take some scenic memories home with you.
