Program

Along the perfectly marked mountain bike tour, cycle around the impressive Dachstein Massif in the area of Upper Austria, Salzburg and Styria. The red version leads along the same route than the blue Dachstein round tour, however in the reverse direction.

The climbs are technical a bit more difficult. The first day already is quite a challenge cycling from Lake Hallstättersee to Gosau, before the route leads up to the Hornspitz. There you will be rewarded with a wonderful view onto the Gosau glacier.

You cycle in direction Ramsau on the foot of the breathtaking south walls of the Dachstein with Mount Bischofsmütze always in sight. A criterion of this tour follows on the last day, when you have to cycle up the challenging "Öfen", before you cycle back to the Salzkammergut.
