Mountainbike in Salzburg's Lungau

With two wheels at the highest level

Especially in recent years, a lot has been done in Salzburg’s Lungau to create an optimal range of signposted mountain bike tours for every taste.

Approximately 480 kilometers of marked mountain bike trails with a total of 18 routes - from leisurely valley tours to challenging tours toward the summit - await cyclists here.

Notice for Forest Roads: The usage times are indicated in our respective tours and are permitted at your own risk.

  1. Use only the approved, marked routes.
  2. Forest roads are operational areas. Expect wood on the road, grazing livestock, and vehicle traffic, and also be prepared for wildlife crossings.
  3. Pay special attention to vehicles, pedestrians, grazing livestock, and wildlife; they have the right of way.
  4. Reduce your speed or dismount before unclear or dangerous spots (e.g., sharp turns, tunnels, bridges, cattle grids).
  5. Biking is only permitted on bicycles that are appropriately equipped (as defined in the Austrian Rules of the Road StVO) and suited for the route in question.
  6. Children up to 12 years of age must wear appropriate protective equipment when biking, including a helmet as specified in the StVO.

The crowning glory of the offer is the Lungau Extreme Marathon.

With a length of 166.8 kilometers and with more than 6.060 meters of altitude difference, it leads from Tamsweg via Göriach and St. Michael, up to the Katschberg and finally back via St. Michael. For experienced bikers, this is a varied tour of three to four days, which can be optimally booked as an arrangement with luggage service, half board and packed lunch.

Here you can find the right offer.
