Your biking holidays Out & about by bike, mountain bike & e-bike

Zell am See-Kaprun becomes your biking region in Austria as soon as spring arrives: you can conquer high vantage points by mountain bike or e-bike, and cosy huts invite you to take a break. Passionate road bikers are on the region's mountain pass roads, and in search of flow, the single trails and freeride lines on the Kitzsteinhorn beckon.

Mountain bike tours and trails

Are you in your element on a mountain bike in the woods and on narrow trails? Then Zell am See-Kaprun has just the thing for you. Set off on two wheels to conquer the Pinzgau mountain world and discover the diverse, clearly marked biking routes in the Zell am See-Kaprun region. In addition to leisurely alpine tours, flowy downhill runs also await you here: On the freeride trails on the Kitzsteinhorn and Maiskogel, you have to master narrow trails and bends.

When mountain biking, the protection of nature is always of great importance: That’s why these riding times apply on off-road mountain bike trails:

  • 1 May to 31 August from 8 am to 7 pm
  • 1 September to 1 November from 8.30 am to 4 pm


Out and about by road bike

A little paradise for road bikers can be enjoyed around Lake Zell: beginner-friendly laps on low-traffic side roads or asphalted roads in the valley are perfect for preparing for the season. Then there are the classics: panoramic circular tours like the Hochkönig Tour or the challenging Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Or how about the 90-km-long bike course of the IRONMAN 70.3 Zell am See-Kaprun
