Keeping close to Lake Wolfgang's southern shore, a level cycling track
through a tiny nature reserve brings you into lovely St Gilgen where the busy
waterfront is filled with restaurants, cafes and attractive frescoed houses.
Visit Mozart's museum (his mother was born here), or take the cable car up
Zwolferhorn for stunning 360 degree views. Alternatively, try your hand at
water skiing on Lake Wolfgang, have a cooling swim by the beach then,
perhaps, enjoy an afternoon of pampering at the hotel's elegant spa.

Today head first by the river then along the north shore of the lake to St
Wolfgang. Renowned for its beautiful 15th century church, this famously
pretty village boasts a maze of cobbled streets lined with attractive
frescoed houses, shops and cafe terraces affording superb lake views. Culture
and music are very much part of St Wolfgang's fine tradition, so be sure to
explore the boutique craft and chocolate shops! After lunch, hop on the
antique cog railway as it chugs up to the summit of Schafberg (1782m) for
unrivalled Alpine views.

 

icon Day 5 : FREE DAY EXPLORING SALZBURG

Location: Salzburg

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Why not give yourself a break from cycling today and take the local bus (80
mins) to Mozart's fairytale city of Salzburg? Described as a Baroque jewel,
and recognised by UNESCO, its idyllic setting, surrounded by the Alps and
bisected by the gentle Salzach river, cannot be bettered by any other city in
Europe. Take time to explore its historic heart and you'll find a wealth of
Baroque palaces, Renaissance gardens, elegant Viennese cafes and the oldest
open-air theatre in Europe.

icon Day 6 : CYCLE TO LAKE NUSSEN

Location: Nussen See

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today's cycling route takes you along quiet country lanes and through rural
farming hamlets bordered by low Alpine meadows - look out for the neat
woodpiles to be used for heating over the winter months. Lunch at the popular
Zur Wacht restaurant then ascend up to beautiful Lake Nussen, a hidden gem
completely off the tourist trail; look out for rare orchids scattered around
its shady shores. There's lots of time to swim and relax before completing a
circular loop back to Strobl.

through the forest towards Lake Schwarzen, perfectly positioned beneath the

then it's a delightful valley descent back to Strobl.

Food

All continental breakfasts and evening meals included. Austria is renowned for its wholesome, robust food and you will be thankful for this after a hard day’s skiing. Typically, you will be set up for the day by a breakfast of cold meats and cheeses, along with the traditional bread, jam and coffee. Austrians tend to eat heartily at lunchtime and less in the evenings; you will be well catered for at dinner. Local specialities include Wiener schnitzel (breaded veal cutlet) and various stews of beef and pork. Dumplings, potatoes or noodles are all regular accompaniments along with vegetables in a style similar to English cooking. Desserts are often fruit based - such as Apfelstrudel - or cream pastries. Rehrucken is a traditional chocolate and almond cream cake On average Austrians, drink twice as much coffee as beer. There are many different types to choose from, particularly in the larger towns and cities and are often drunk in specialist coffee houses, known locally as a Kaffeehaus. It is often served in large cups and finished off with a healthy dose of whipped cream. Austrian wines tend to be sweet white varieties, similar to German Mosel wines. The three best-known areas for producing white wines are Krems, Klosterneuburg and Gumpoldskirchen. The main red wine producing area is Voslau. Of course Austria is better known for its beer and you will find a wide variety of local brews. The best known are Gosser and Augustiner Brau and come in light or dark forms.
