Offers for weekly tours for mountain bikers
Fixed tours are offered at least 3 times a week and cost Euro 60,- per person.
Starting point Agathawirt: You have the guarantee that at least three of the tours start directly at the hotel and at least 2 performance groups are offered on the same days.
Starting point Bad Goisern: Another tour starts in the centre of Bad Goisern. The tours are divided into 2 - 3 different performance groups: 200 - 500 hm, 600 - 900 hm and 1000 - 1300 hm. The division into the performance groups takes place on site in consultation with Helmut Simonlehner, manager of the Salzkammergut Mountain Bike Centre.
Starting point neighbouring communities: Other fixed tours are offered with starting points in neighbouring communities. These tours can be booked with or without bike shuttle service - the cost of the shuttle depends on the distance - more information on site - these tours are the ideal alternative to get to know lakes and mountains in the wider Salzkammergut.
An overview of the fixed tours for the following weeks is available at the hotel - we will be happy to advise you. Highlights like the "Ewige Wand", the "Hütteneckalm" or the "Plassen" are of course not missing in any week.
As every mountain biking guide comes from the region, they know not only about mountain biking offers, but have a lot to say about the Salzkammergut. As trained mountain biking instructors, they combine every tour with a short technical training.
In addition to the regular tours, you can also reserve your own private guide who will take only you or your friends out for a tour. The price for the private guide for up to 4 persons is € 120.00 and for 5 – 10 persons € 150.00. For groups of more than 10 persons, a second guide will go along. We will gladly make you a detailed offer.
Guests that do not wish to take part in a day tour, but would like to work on their technique should choose a technical training for € 80.00 per person.
Get to know the mountain biking highlights in other parts of the Salzkammergut:
- "Through the Auseerland", incl. the Viehbergalm and the so-called "Öfen"

Programme for bike-free days
Several times a week, we offer guided hikes with "Betty".
A special highlight is the gondola trip to the Krippenstein – Visit to the Höhlenwelt (world of caves) – Have your photo taken by the peak camera at the World Heritage Spiral and send it home as an electronic postcard!
The 72 lakes of the Salzkammergut (for instance Lake Wolfgang, Lake Traun, Lake Atter or Lake Mond, Altaussee Lake, Grundl Lake or Lake Hallstatt, just to mention the largest amongst them) make it difficult to decide which one to jump into on any particular day.
The World Heritage city of Hallstatt, along with its salt mines, or the imperial city of Ischl and the Eurotherme there make it difficult to decide whether to bike or not. …and then we have the city of Salzburg, which is only 65 kilometres away.
