To the Erlhofplatte by e-bike
The excitement of enjoying mountain bike tours again increases in spring and with the first days of early summer. Finally, conquering the region on two wheels again! We like to get a little support for this: with an e-bike, steep climbs and long distances are easier to master - and we have more opportunities to enjoy the view.
Exploring the most beautiful places in the Zell am See-Kaprun region by e-bike? Sounds like an excellent plan for sunny days! We reveal our favourite panoramic tour and explain what to look out for when renting an e-bike.
For those who feel the same way, there are many possibilities to rent an e-bike in Zell am See-Kaprun. This time we opt for the e-bikes from Bründl Sports: rental bikes with electric drive are available at the Bründl Sports Stores at the Maiskogelbahn lower terminus in Kaprun and the areitXpress lower terminus in Zell am See. Before the biking fun starts, we asked Mario Gschwandtner, bike expert at Bründl Sports, a few questions: What do you have to look out for when renting an e-bike?
Tour tip: To the Erlhofplatte
Where do you want to go? The tour to the Erlhofplatte is one of our favourites for the first spring ride: this 21.5-kilometre route, with just under 850 metres of difference in altitude, can be easily mastered with a little electric tailwind. We start in Thumersbach on the eastern shore of Lake Zell and follow the signs on asphalt and gravel paths to the cosy Enzianhütte. After a break and a little refreshment - perhaps the famous, fluffy Kaiserschmarren(?), it's time to push the pedals hard until we reach the Erlhofplatte. The best thing about it: the magnificent view! Then it's back downhill via Bruck and back to the starting point in Thumersbach.
Not only when e-biking: Protect nature and animals
Whether beginner or pro - the most important rule for bike tours in the Zell am See-Kaprun region is: we respect the boundaries to nature and animals. That's why rides on MTB trails off roads in the region are restricted and only allowed at certain times.
- 01.05. - 31.08. from 8 am until 7 pm

All clear? Then we wish you lots of fun on your first (e-)bike tours!
