Through the Salzkammergut
From the mountains to the lakes
That’s how this trip is described the best. On this tour we leave the mountains of the Pinzgau for a couple of hours and move to the beautiful nature of the Salzkammergut. Relaxation deluxe. Pure sunshine and beautiful lakes are inviting for some rest and enjoy every minute of your day.
The way through the Salzkammergut
You should start early in the morning and leave the Hotel Lampenhäusl for Bruck a.d. Glocknerstraße. There you do not go in direction Zell am See, but follow the Pinzgau Bundesstraße towards Bischofshofen. You come along the Werfen castle, over the pass Lueg, until you reach the city of Hallein. In the roundabout in Hallein you take the road towards the Wiestal.
Just follow this road for a few kilometers and pass the Wiestalstausee - a major reservoir next to the road - a good place for a short stop. After a few more kilometers on the Wiestal road, you reach an intersection. Turn right and follow the route over the Wolfgangsee road.
This road takes you along the village of Fuschl and the famous Fuschl lake, until you reach St. Gilgen at the Wolfgang lake. Just before St. Gilgen, you will find a parking place on the right hand side - take a stop here - you will have an amazing view over the Wolfgang lake. Just follow the road towards Stobl and Bad Ischl. We do not visit the classic imperial city of Bad Ischl, but move on towards Bad Goisern and the Hallstätter lake. Now, the scenery changes.
You should use the Hallstätter lake for another pit stop, before you move on in direction Gosau and Abtenau over the Pass Gschütt. Just before Abtenau you have to decide: 1) over Abtenau, Golling, Pass Luegg, Bischofshofen again AND another trip to the Hochkönig. 2) Annaberg in the Lammertal, St. Martin at the Tennengebirge, Hüttau, Eben in the Pongau, Wagrain and back to Fusch. Whatever you decide - the trip through the Salzkammergut will leave you astonished on every single kilometer.

TIPP by Milan - our motorcycling expert knows more:
If you come to the Salzburger Land in summer, you really should plan this motorcycling trip. The loop through the Salzkammergut combines wild mountain scenery with the natural beauty of the Salzkammergut lakes. Especially at the shores of the Hallstätter lake you can see, how the steep faces of the Dachstein-range disappear in the dark depth of the lake. Beautiful: you really should plan a short trip to the historic village of Hallstatt.
In the Salzkammergut relaxation and pleasure are about to win over stress and hectic. Nice view points and famous rest areas are inviting for tired motorcyclists. If there is a rest area next to a lake, you really should stop your engine and take a rest - you will look at your pictures for ever. If you are interested in the really old and traditional coffee-culture of the imperial city of Bad Ischl, you should plan a stop in the famous Cafe Zauner. You have to try the original Zauner-Kipferl.
Whatever you plan or do, make sure you come back to the Hotel Lampenhäusl safely. The sauna is already hot and in the kitchen we prepare delicious meals for you. Even your bike deserves a rest after this long trip. In our Lampenhäusl-garage we offer everything you need, in order to care for your motorcycle.
See you on tour - we look forward to your visit!
