 The bike ride around Lake Mondsee is because of the wonderful scenery, the length of 25.7 km and only 65 vertical meters the most family-friendly bike ride in the region Mondsee. The bike ride is very well signposted as “Salzkammergut Cycle Path R2”. The lake Mondsee is situated in Upper Austria's Salzkammergut. The south shore forms the border between Upper Austria and Salzburg. With a length of 11 km and a maximum width of 1.5 km the lake Mondsee area is 14.2 km ². Mondsee is also the starting point and destination of the marathon “Mondsee 5 Seen Radmarathon”. Thousands of bikers start every year to manage one distance between 25 and 200km through the beautiful Salzkammergut.

The starting point for the bike ride around Lake Mondsee is either the main square, or the lakeside promenade in Mondsee. On the northern bank of the lake Mondsee we drive on the Salzkammergut cycle path R2 next to the road “Atterseestraße” and near the shore in direction Attersee. After 5 kilometers we turn with the whole group to the right on the small road “Salzkammergutweg” towards Seewinkl. This section goes up to a short pitch (15 vertical meters) and then follows as a reward to the main road a short descent. Then we drive on the road “Atterseestraße” to the eastern shores of the lake - Mondsee. At km 12 we turn on these great families - bike ride to the right towards St. Gilgen.

Through the rock “Kienbergwand”, not only for the cars was built a tunnel, but also with a length of 1.5 km, a separate tunnel for cyclists. Every few hundred meters away was the very well-lit tunnel also provided with an opening to the outside. There you are standing on like on a balcony, and with the whole family, we enjoy the magnificent views of Lake Mondsee. After 16 km we turn in Scharfling on the road “Mondseestrasse” to the right. We follow this road 3.5 km to the village Plomberg. On the way there you’ll have a very good view of the rock “Drachenwand”. In Plomberg we left the road “Mondseestrasse” and continue the tour on partially not paved roads without much traffic 2.6 kilometers to St. Lawrence. This section is not suitable for road bikes. Cyclists continue on the road “Mondseestrasse” (orange line on the Google Map). After crossing the road “Mondseestrasse” we drive the last kilometers on the Salzkammergut Cycle Path R2 near the shore of Lake Mondsee back to the starting point. After the bike ride we make in the pedestrian zone of Mondsee a very cozy break. Once we have strengthened us, we will visit the seaside resort in Mondsee.
