 The 80.7 km long bicycle tour through the region Salzkammergut from Hallstatt to Mondsee is suitable, because of the changing road surfaces, for mountain bikes and bicycles. For those who want to drive with a racing bike from Hallstatt to Mondsee, I created a separately bicycle tour. The medium difficult bike tour runs very nice past the lakes: Hallstattättersee, Wolfgangsee and Mondsee. The entire route is well marked as Salzkammergut Cycle Path R2. In the Google Map are all paved sections red and gravel roads blue marked.

After a long stay at the world famous village Hallstatt, we take the cycle path to Obertraun beside the road. Immediately after the bridge over the river - Traun, we turn left and reach after 5.5 km the shore and the beach in Obertraun. Then follows a very nice and quiet 10 km long section on the eastern shore of Lake Hallstatt. The surface of the varied section changes a few times between gravel and asphalt. On the roads – Pass Gschütt Straße and Obere Marktstraße, we drive to the center of Bad Goisern. Here is our focus not only the beautiful town center, but also the rock with the „Ewige Wand“ (eternal wall), where we have also been driven with our mountain bikes. On the main square in Bad Goisern, we turn left towards the river - Traun. Along an beautiful gravel road along the river Traun we cycle toward to the next village - Lauffen. After Lauffen we switch on the west bank of the Traun and drive to the spa town Bad Ischl. After 28 kilometers we make on the beautiful promenade, a cozy break and then we go out of Bad Ischl in a northerly direction. After 800 meters at the road – Salzburger Straße we turn right and along quiet streets we follow the signs of the Salzkammergut cycle path slightly uphill as far as Strobl. If you does not look at the very famous resort of St. Wolfgang you‘ll save 12 kilometers.

Far from the main street and the noise, we cycle on gravel roads to Gschwand and to the lake wolfgang. From Gschwand to St. Gilgen is the bike path paved again. Before you‘ll take the 60 vertical meters from St. Gilgen up to the height – Scharflinger Höhe, you should look around in St. Gilgen. The 8 kilometers from St. Gilgen to Plomberg at the lake – Mondsee we must drive on the road - Mondseestraße. Between Scharfling and Plomberg you’ll cycle comfortably along the shore of Lake Mondsee. Near Plomberg there is an impressive view of the „Drachenwand“ (dragon wall). The huge rock is one of the defining elements of the landscape around the lake Mondsee. The last 6 kilometers to Mondsee leads the Salzkammergut cycle path off the main road through side streets to the center of the village Mondsee. However here are two short sections with dirt roads. After the bike ride we have a very good brake and peacefull time in the pedestrian zone of Mondsee. Then we relax at the nearby beach.
