A bike tour through one of the most beautiful regions in the Alps, the Ausseerland. Past Grundlsee and Altausseer See, this sporty bike path leaves nothing to be desired.

To also pay a visit to the spa town of Bad Aussee, drive straight ahead on Radlingstraße (Alte Salzstraße), past the Kalvarienberg Church of St. Leonhard and down to the center.The second option opens up at the entrance to Grundlsee, where you can turn left and head down the Traun River to Bad Aussee.

Destination

Blaa Alm

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the train station in Pichl-Kainisch and branches off from the well-known Salzkammergutradweg >R19<. Over the Radlingpass you reach the direction of Grundlsee, the largest bathing lake in Styria. The descent from Radling to Grundlsee is certainly one of the centerpieces of this bike route.

In Grundlsee you turn sharply left in front of the Seehotel and cycle via Obertressen to Altaussee. Before that, there are magnificent views of the Dachstein from a wayside shrine on the side of the road, significantly named "Dachsteinblick".

Altaussee, the charming village with its numerous villas, invites you to take a break. Always in the face of the Loser, the road climbs a bit again to the Blaa-Alm, which delights every visitor, especially during the daffodil bloom. In the cozy alpine hut you can then get your well-deserved refreshment.

If you wish, you can continue on to Bad Ischl. There you continue on the gravel road. After a right-left combination you descend into the Rettenbach valley.

Attention steep step with coarse gravel! Please enjoy the narrow Rettenbach valley with caution, unclear curves and possibly oncoming traffic, also encounters with cars and little space to avoid!

After the narrow valley and a sinister tunnel, the country opens up and the Rettenbachalm is in front of you. Then it's just briskly out of the valley, until finally the imperial city of Bad Ischl is reached.
