 We start cycling on the Enns cycle path in Flachau-Winkel at an altitude of 1,200 m. Since they have built a few years ago a highway right there, the landscape is full of contrasts. On the one hand the beautiful scenery of the mountains in Salzburg and on the other side you’ll see the highway bridge over the hut - Gasthofalm. The first 5 kilometers we drive on the street with little traffic downvalley. After a few meters the highway bother us no longer and we enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Salzburg mountains. After about 5km starts a cycle path at the left side of the road. On the excellently marked Enns cycle path you’ll always drive down through the villages Flachau and Altenmarkt. Between Flachau and Altenmarkt you have the choice whether you go on a bike lane through the center of Altenmarkt or remains on the Enns cycle path. We opt for the beautiful center and at 20 km we are back on the marked Enns cycle path.

Immediately behind Radstadt start a beautiful 8 km long dirt road to Mandling. Through the center of Mandling we cross the Ennstal road twice without crossing. Between Gleiming and Schladming there are another three short gravel roads. Along the river Enns, there are some very good resting places. After 43 kilometers we reach Schladming and the Enns cycle path is in addition to the green signs marked with blue signs. Especially recommended is the short detour to the main square in Schladming, the town of the Ski Championships 1982 and 2013. In the pedestrian zone there are some very good options for a nice rest. On the bike path through Haus im Ennstal and Weissenbach, there are two small hills with 40 and 30 vertical meters. Of Mandling to Gröbming we cross the river Enns 11 times and can thereby observe how beautifully she is gaining in size. 3 km behind Aich you drive on the Enns cycle path beautifully on a 2.3 km long gravel road to Pruggern. In Moosheim we leave right after the railway station the Enns cycle path and drive 3 kilometers up to Gröbming. The 1.7 km long ascent with about hundred vertical meters has an average gradient of 5.9%.

The 12 kilometers of Gröbming to Espang have the same beautifully landscape as the rest of the tour, but because the bike path is very close to the Ennstal road, the traffic disturbs a little. In Espang we move to the other side of the valley and it's a little quieter next to Trautenfels. The Trautenfels Castle was first mentioned in writing in 1261. The castle was at the end of the 20th Century renovated and now houses a very interesting landscape museum and a restaurant. First we drive 700m towards Irdning and then we turn left. The following 5.5 km we bike away from the traffic along the Enns to Wörschach. Equally relaxing and with a beautiful landscape are the 10 km from Wörschach to Liezen. Here is also a dirt road with a length of about 5 kilometers. After 104 kilometers we reach the district capital Liezen and drive up a small detour to the main square. Where we eat something before we go further to Admont. 2.5 km east of Ardning is on a small hill the sanctuary - Frauenberg. The Sanctuary is located at a 130m high hill. Of the widely visible parish and pilgrimage church you have a very good view to the regions Gesäuse and Grimming. The beautifully landscaped garden on the west side is a special place of spiritual retreat where you can very well find inner peace (not shown in the Google Map and the elevation profile).

After visiting the sanctuary Frauenberg we cross again the river - Enns and drive on the south side of the Enns 8 kilometers to Admont. There you have to overcome another two small climbs. Admont is one of the oldest settlements in Styria. The first mention is made in the year 859. 1074 was then founded the monastery in Admont. Very well worth seeing are in Admont the library, the abbey pond, the Marie Park and the main street with some beautiful old buildings. Past the tennis court, we bike the next 5 km of Admont on a nice bike path 5 km along the Enns to Weng im Gesäuse. The half distance is first paved and then a dirt road. The 3,5 km of Weng im Gesäuse to the bridge near the entrance of the Gesäuse entrance we drive on a side street with little traffic. From there the Enns cycle path runs, except for a few km bike lanes, in Landl and Großreifling, always on the main road. The number of motorcycles on a sunny weekend is a little disturbing. Who does not like bike on roads with more traffic, should consider whether it better to travel the path of Hieflau to Kleinreifling by train.

The wonderful scenic tour through the region Gesaeuse begins in the west at the two small mountains Himbeerstein 1.222m and Haindlmauer 1.435m. On the 16 kilometers to Hieflau the river Enns overcomes a slope of about 150m. The region Gesäuse takes its name from the wild and sparkling water. In the very popular hiking area you can see approximately 90 species of breeding birds, marmots, chamois, deer, marmots, deer and 50 orchid species. 2002, a large part of the region  Gesäuse was declared as a national park. The mountains of limestone rock offer many great subjects for photographers. In Gstatterboden we reach at kilometer 144 the only villaage in the central part of the Gesäuse. Here you have the opportunity to take an alternative tour on MTB Tour Hochscheibenalm to Hieflau. The 10 kilometers between Hieflau and Großreifling are again quite hilly. Großreifling is on a loop of the River Enns on the Left Bank, near the confluence of the Enns Salza. Just as at the Enns offers the Salza, one of the best opportunities for white water sports, canyoning, rafting and kayaking.

The Enns cycle path of Großreifling to Reichraming is with 894 vertical meters on the 47 kilometers very hilly. As you can see in the elevation profile, there is a slope of about 100 vertical meters and many small hills. At km 186 we bike through Kleinreifling and then on a side street with less traffic to Reichraming. Anyone who would like to view the beautiful market town Weyer have to bike only a detour of 4 km. Weyer is with  223.8 km ² in area, the second largest community in Upper Austria. The health resort is noted for its ideal climatic conditions and the fog-free "Golden Autumn". The National Park community Großraming was already voted "Most beautiful village in Upper Austria" and is located in the beautiful and varied scenery of the Alps. In the Limestone Alps National Park there are many green pastures, romantic valleys with clear, clean streams many beautiful well-marked MTB trails, hiking and biking trails. Reichraming the green gate to the mountains „Reichraminger Hintergebirge“ are rich in water, wildlife, and forest. In the Forestry Museum you’ll learn more who the woodcutters worked and lived at that time. For sporting people there a many mtb and hiking trails in the National Park Kalkalpen. So mountain bikers and also families with children can have very goog holidays in one of the most beautiful regions of upper austria. After 6 km you‘ll reach Losenstein. On the rock in the center of Losenstein was built in the 12th Century a castle. Today, the ruin is one of the largest and oldest in Upper Austria. In Ternberg after 14 km we leave the country around the Limestone Alps National Park and the landscape in the Upper Austrian region - Traunviertel will be transferred from a mountainous to a rolling. In Ternberg you can also see the largest Folding Pocket (pocket knife).

From Ternberg we bike on the road L1344 Lahrndorfer Straße. At km 235 we reach again the shore on the river Enns and we continues the cycling tour on the Enns Cycle Path.  On the beautiful town square in Steyr we hava a long break. Steyr is with about 38,000 inhabitants, the third largest town in Upper Austria. It is located at the confluence of the two rivers Enns and Steyr. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and the center of a region with more than 100,000 people.

Unlike the Enns Bike Path in the opposite direction, we remain after the passage in Steyr in Upper Austria on the left bank of the river Enns. In Steyr, Schieferegg and Enns there are three short gravel roads with a length of about 600-900m. 3 km before the end of our bike tour meets the Enns Cycle Path the Danube Cycle Path in the village - Enghagen. There, the signs of the Enns Cycle Path ends. But since we also want to see the biggest river in Austria we drive the 3 km further to the bike ferry across the Danube to Mauthausen. This is a few hundred meters before the confluence of the Danube and Enns.
