Fit in the city – Biking

Whether you are coming to Salzburg for business or enjoying the city and its sights. A stay can be exhausting and tiring. We will give you the best tips to stay fit with activity and sport.


An extensive cycling route

Salzburg has an extensive cycle path network and can be explored wonderfully with the bicycle. Whether for sightseeing, as a leisure activity or for sporting activities – there are plenty of routes and places and Salzburg is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in Austria.

Explore the city by bicycle

If you do not like walking, you can explore Salzburg by bicycle. More than 170 km of cycle paths are at your disposal and even further distant destinations can be easily reached by bike. Along the Salzach River and the Hellbrunner Allee, you can easily reach Hellbrunn Palace with its water games and the Salzburg Zoo.
For those who feel insecure by bike in a foreign city, there are also guided bike tours including sightseeing. “Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tour” or “Bike & The City” offer interesting biking tours for the whole family.


Sporty on the road

For those who want to use the bike in a sportive activity, the Salzach Bike Trail along the Salzach River is the ideal location. From our two Salzburg hotels, IMLAUER Hotel Pitter Salzburg and Hotel IMLAUER & Bräu you can easily reach the Salzach river in just a few minutes. From here, you can bike as long as you want. The cycle path leads along both sides of the river.
If you prefer a route a bit more demanding and would like to ride a few heights, you can go on the Gaisberg, one of Salzburg’s mountains around the city.


Find the right bike

Of course, you do not have to bring your own bike. Salzburg has a number of bicycle rental shops that deliver bicycles to your hotel and pick them up again. A number of suggestions can be found HERE. We hope you enjoy discovering the city by bike.
