Ennsradweg cycle route (263 km)
On of the most beautiful cycle routes which goes along the river and passes through 3 counties: Salzburg, Styria and Upper Austria. The Ennsradweg cycle route starts at an altitude of 1200 m at Flachauwinkl in Salzburg and ends in Enns at a height of 281 m.
The first stage is dominated by the magnificent highland, several lakes and the quietly flowing river Enns. We get to the medieval city of Schladming and so to Haus im Ennstal where SissiPark is situated via rigorous, light Dachstein massiveness to the left and dark, crystalline rock of the Low Tauern to the right. The road which gets visibly broader leads next to the stunning Trautenfels castle to the most spectacular stage of the tours. At the entrance of the Gesäuse National Park the so far quiet river Enns becomes speedy and rumbling.
The road guides us next to sleepy villages and romantic cities as the old market town of Steyr till we reach the cycle route along the Danube. The Ennsradweg cycle route is symbolized with a “R7“ in Styria.

From Haus we ride till the next village to Oberhaus. Here starts the 7 km uphill part which takes us to the hill station of the Hauser Kaibling cable car. From here we can enjoy the stunning panorama. The road leads via the ski route to the Speicher Lake and from here via the forest road up to the Stangl meadow. In the meadows we can try the specialities of this region. On the way back we ride down hill for 9 km. Moving on towards Weißenbach we cross the Enns via the Enns bridge. On the Schotter road we ride along the Enns and pass a model airplane station. We ride on side by side with the train and then we cross the Enns again via the Hänge bridge. From here comes the last uphill part of the tour which leads us past the pool in Haus till we get back to the centre of Haus.

The tour begins in Haus at the Marktplatz, from where we can cycle along an easy way till Ruperting. Here starts the fist uphill stage to Grumpenberg. The route passes beautiful meadows till it takes us to the other side of the mountain, where the second uphill begins to Gössenberg. After a short descending we cycle uphill towards Pruggererberg. Now we can relax a little bit on the way down before we ascend to Michaelerberg to an altitude of 1200 m. The view which includes the whole Schladming-Dachstein region will make up for our troubles. After passing Mossheim and Gröbming comes the last uphill of the tour to Assach. The route descends from here via a forest road first to Assach, then to Aich from where we get back to Haus.
