The Tour

Bike tour in the Innviertel - Steyr

This bike tour in the Innviertel takes you along familiar and unfamiliar paths through the foothills of the Alps, with the provincial capital Linz as the starting and finishing point. The rivers Danube and Inn, Enns, Steyr and Ischl make for pleasantly easy cycling, and the landscapes in the Salzkammergut, the Danube valley and the Inn floodplains are magnificent. The big city of Linz is the antithesis to the rural character of this bike tour in the Innviertel, for which you should bring some basic fitness.
