More information

It is best to plan your journey to Altaussee with google.at/maps.
The bike tour starts at the striking "Schlägel und Eisen" sculpture in the spa park. From here, follow the road towards Loser and turn left at the first opportunity over the bridge. Immediately after the bridge, turn right and continue straight ahead. There follows a steep climb over the old "Steinbergstraße". At this point you are certainly glad to call good condition (or an e-bike) his own.

After about a kilometer you reach the Steinberghaus, here is also the entrance to the Salzwelten Altaussee. Continue straight on. In a sharp left turn is the access building to the "Kriechbaumberg". Here there is a viewing window in the door and the first meters of the route are illuminated.

After a glimpse into the world of the miners, the route continues along the gravel road. In short intervals follow the gallery portal to the Sandlingberg and a few hundred meters further the Moosberg. All gallery portals are provided with boards that give information about the respective location.

Continue straight ahead along the forest road until you reach a crossroads. Turn left here and follow the signs to Pflindsberg. A detour on foot to the ruins is rewarded with a wonderful view of Altaussee. A few hundred meters after the castle, the forest road merges into an asphalt road. Follow this road (and the serpentines) until you reach a crossroads. Here turn left into Lupitschstraße and continue to the end. At the end of the road turn right, past the Reischenböck nursery to the "Postillions Einkehr" inn. Turn left again here and follow the main road to the Kurpark.

 

A visit to the Altaussee Salt Worlds is definitely worthwhile.
Opposite the spa park Altaussee there is a paid parking lot. If there is no parking space available, please use the parking lot Scheichlmühle at the beginning of the village.
