After a short train trip along the Tauern tunnel we arrive at the Böckstein station, in the beautiful Gasteiner Valley. Here begins our downhill ride: on the national road for a short track and afterwards on a suggestive bicycle route that follows the Gasteiner creek banks.

Soon we enter in the world famous Bad Gastein, renowed for its thermal baths and the spectacular waterfall that crosses the town.

Outside Bad Gastein we keep on cycling in a slight downhill on good quality unpaved bike paths and soon we reach Bad Hofgastein, where you must visit the old town.

The Alpe Adria Cycle Route goes stright to the end of the valley, moving away from the Gasteiner creek and entering the various villages of the valley or running side by side of the national road. Towards the end of the Gastein valley, the torrent drifts into a gorge dominated by a castle.

Here the bicycle path enters in some tunnels that lead us in the valley of the Salzach River near the small village of Lend. Here we meet with the “Tauernradweg” (the Tauern Mountains bicycle route) and we keep on pedaling following the signs for Salzburg.

This part of the cycle route runs high in the Salzach Valley offering some spectacular views of the surrounding mountains but we’ll find some ups and downs too. At Brandstatt's artificial lake, a long and fast downhill will take us to the bottom of the valley near the pretty village of Schwarzach.

The Tauernradweg now runs flat, almost always following the river bank, touching the village of Sankt Johann im Pongau and, after a few kilometers, arrives at the historical town of Bischofshofen.
